You probably downloaded TikTok as a joke and now can’t get off of it. A lot of people use TikTok just to keep up with those ‘trends’ which are 30 second dances you see so often on your FYP. But, we can’t help but get influenced by all those videos which show how some products worked insanely good for them. And, a lot of people (including me!) are guilty of buying them without knowing if it’s even good for you.
TikTok has officially gained the power to take over mine, and many others’ purchases. It’s funny how a million views has the power to convince so many people to try out so many products. The Teen Edit has listed below 15 beauty products that TikTok most probably made you buy.
The Ordinary has received wide recognition on the Gen Z dominated platform. Especially the AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution. This has been raved about by TikTok users for their effectiveness and mainly, their affordability. The AHA 30% + BHA 2% acts as a mask which has been reported as an extensive exfoliating agent. Thus, it is important to moisturise with a thick layer of moisturiser after removing the mask.
The Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% is another product from The Ordinary, which has, again got a lot of praise from young users who claim that it’s popularity has lead to it being wiped out of Target and Sephora shelves. While it’s suitable for most skin types, it’s the most beneficial for people with oily skin as it cuts down excess sebum production. In the process, it has been said to effectively clear out blemishes, according to avid users of this product.
In addition to The Ordinary, CeraVe is another extremely popular Skincare brand among TikTok users. While it’s not be a person, it can be said that the brand went ‘viral’ amongst TikTok users this year and ever since, you’ll see a tonne of people using CeraVe products. The most famous amongst all is their Salicylic Acid cleanser which is non-comedogenic, affordable and effective. People have extensively begun using CeraVe, often only including their products in their Skincare routines, ranging from cleansers to serums, moisturisers and even sunscreen.
