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 my favorite TikTok choice for spot-treating acne, pimples, whiteheads, red or dry skin, and blemishes. The Glow Fairy Glow Tips are cotton swabs filled with a highly-concentrated formula to clean, hydrate, and reduce inflammation of blemishes while helping diminish their appearance and produce healthier skin. I found out about Glow Fairy when a co-worked offered me a secret 50% off discount code SECRET50 and I couldn’t have been happier with the results. A combination of Salicylic Acid, Glycerin, and Guava Fruit Extract helps lift away dirt, oil, and free radicals while providing much-needed hydration to the blemish area. As quickly as one use will help diminish the appearance of any blemish, with daily use helping prevent scarring and other issues. This is at the top of my list and 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 found some amazing products on TikTok, 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 Glow Tips worked for her. Stephanie tells the story.
Personally, I never believed in the effectiveness of spot treatments, or creams for blemishes. There’s a lot of brands out there claiming they work overnight, and that’s just too hard to believe. 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 I told my best friend, who I trust with my life, about Glow Fairy Glow Tips. She ran straight to her vanity and grabbed a box of the Tips, she was so excited! She said it was the only spot treatment that helped diminish the appearance of her pimples and dry skin. 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 Glow Tips. Instead, she gave me a secret 50% off code, SECRET50, and I ordered my own immediately.
I received the package within two days and started using them that night. The application is very simple. Each box comes with 25 cotton swabs filled with a highly-concentrated and effective formula. You pull out a cotton swab and bend it at the fold until you hear it break open. The formula in the handle then soaks the cotton swab. Gently rub the swab on your blemishes to coat them with the effective ingredients. Then, you just need to let the formula dry on your skin. Of course, I looked into the mirror expecting a miracle… but alas, it usually takes longer than a few minutes.
So while I waited, I looked into the science of Glow Fairy. I wanted to know more about the ingredients that make Glow Fairy’s Glow Tips so effective. There are three main ingredients helping reduce your acne and blemishes.
SALICYLIC ACID A common ingredient for acne that helps shed dead skin cells from the top layers of skin to allow for healthier skin to rise to the top. This can help reduce inflammation, redness, and speed up the healing process.
GLYCERIN Very essential for helping the focused-area retain moisture to better heal itself. Just like all parts of the body, hydration is extremely important, and glycerin is an ultra-hydrator.
PSIDIUM GUAJAVA FRUIT EXTRACT Especially vital for the skin, this is the outlier ingredient that many other products don’t use. It’s an antibacterial to help reduce inflammation, and even pigmentation. It works extremely fast while helping prevent future infections.
I woke up the next morning to check the blemishes I used the tip on and was amazed. Each blemish was reduced by HALF the size. They were barely noticeable. Usually it takes a week or more for a red spot to go away. By the next morning they were completely gone. Unbelievable.
I’ve been converted into a Glow Tip believer, and I hope you will, too!
