These 5 Products Went Viral on TikTok… and For Good Reason!
These days, one of the best platforms to spot trends, whether style or beauty, is TikTok! In the last few years, women and men have gone viral for showing off some of their favorite beauty products including skincare, mascaras, lip gloss, and more.
Of course, everything that goes viral doesn’t necessarily mean it’s a good product. Often a eye-catching video is all you need to show off a product that may be harmful to your skin or just… not work! So how do you know which viral beauty products actually work?! However, thankfully, we have a team of reviewers and dermatologists that have wrapped up some of the best viral beauty products,
We went through dozens of viral TikTok beauty products and ranked the top 5 most effective and safe. Let’s get started…
This is by far our favorite choice of beauty products that have appeared on TikTok. The Glow Fairy Spotlights are concentrated circular patches infused with essential ingredients to help remove acne, blemishes, and red spots. We discovered The Glow Fairy when a reviewer gave us their secret 50% off code SECRET50. We had to try them and were not disappointed. Packed with Hyaluronic Acid, Salicylic Acid, and Niacinamide along with special antioxidants to repair damaged skin cells, The Glow Fairy’s Spotlights do wonders for damaged skin. Within one use you’ll notice reduced redness with continuous nightly use helping reduce even the deepest blemishes. Highly recommended!
This amazing contour wand is perfect for blending colors for a perfect look. Madison Beer may have been the first to make it popular, but it certainly took TikTok by storm from makeup tutorial artists to regular users. Choose from two colors to help give you the perfect look. What we also love about this product (especially our team of dermatologists) is that it’s vegan-friendly, gluten-free, paraben-free, sulfate-free, and never tested on animals.
Why so many loved Maybelline’s mascara was because it's so under the radar. This is a simple drugstore find that many TikTok’rs have been loving it for how well it works at such a low cost! Similar mascaras are often two to three times as expensive. The non-flaking, non-smudging mascara is the perfect product for makeup bags and travel kits, too.
Whether you think so or not, almost everyone could use some hair repair, TikTok users have declared. With thousands of views, people are in love with Olaplex. Hair is so sensitive and even if you take amazing care of it, something like Olaplex’s No. 3 Hair Perfector will still help. It’s the smoothest, best hair conditioner and repairer ever. You can use it every day or like, once a month, either way you’d be doing a HUGE service to your hair.”
This was a surprising viral product but undeniably effective and amazing. CeraVe Hydrating Facial Cleanser is a simple and affordable face wash that TikTok loves. Often, we look for those super expensive, rare ingredients, hyper superior face washes that are supposed to completely revitalize your face in one wash. But in reality, what’s better is a simple face wash that you can use before applying concentrated help (Like the Glow Fairy Spotlights).
While we recommended some great products as well as natural ways to help diminish the appearance of blemishes, red spots, and age spots. But we truly believe Glow Fairy is top of the list. We wanted to talk further with our investigative reporter Stephanie Marianne who helped create the rankings list and how The Glow Fairy Spotlight worked for her. Stephanie tells the story.
Personally, I never believed in the effectiveness of age spot and blemish reducers, or creams for damaged skin. There’s a lot of brands out there claiming they work, but most don’t. I’ve had too many friends tricked into buying some wild cream just to find out it’s a waste of money. So I’ve avoided it at all costs.
But then my best friend, who I trust with my life, swore by The Glow Fairy Spotlights. She said it was perfect for placing over small red spots and blemishes that she wanted to get rid of overnight. I, of course, didn’t believe her. But then she showed me a photo from the night before, and I was stunned. She had three small blemishes that were completely gone from her skin! I begged her to let me borrow her Wrinkle Erasers Neck Patches. Instead, she gave me a secret 50% off code, SECRET50, and I ordered my own Spotlights immediately.
I received the package within two days and started using them that night. The application is very simple. Each box comes with small circular patches. You pull the patches from their sheets and place on any red spot, age spot, or blemish you’re trying to diminish. You’re instructed to put the patch over the red spots every night until it’s fully gone. Of course, I woke up the next day expecting a miracle… but alas, it usually takes longer than a day.
So while I waited, I looked into the science of Glow Fairy. I wanted to know more about what the Spotlights were doing to help revitalize my skin.
Step 1: Damaged skin happens when nutrients are unable to repair the skin from blemishes, free radicals, or the sun’s rays. The older we get, the harder it is for our skin to naturally repair these areas.
Step 2: When you place a Spotlight over a blemish, you are first placing a healthy dose of Salicylic Acid on your skin, which helps remove dead skin cells and fight free radicals. This makes way for new skin cells to appear.
Step 3: Each patch also includes Niacinamide which works to repair damaged skin cells while offering extra protection from free radicals, sun damage, and chemical toxins.
Step 4: As the skin cells are repaired, Hyaluronic Acid brings much-needed hydration to help keep the skin, which helps deliver new nutrients to the skin and keep them there.
After about 3 days is when I began to notice the age spots beginning to really diminish. By the first week, the spots were completely gone and I moved onto another age spot on my hand!
I’ve been converted into a Spotlight believer, and hope you will, too.
