The beauty products TikTok has convinced us we need

TikTok made us do it

The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution

It’s pretty safe to say anything from The Ordinary is deserving of the massive hype it gets, and the viral sensation that is this peeling solution is no different. Sure, the deep burgundy-red colour kind of leaves your face looking like you’ve been attacked by a vampire or are fresh from a particularly aggressive peel (in a fun selfie-worthy way of course), but once you wash it off you’re just left with silky-smooth (regular-coloured) skin. We can't stop watching this TikTok roadtest, courtesy of @honeydewgloss who labels it as 'one thing that actually deserves the hype'.

Urban Skin Rx Even Tone Cleansing Bar

If acne scars are getting you down, TikTok creator @niceoneashley has a hack for sending signs of prior pimples packing. This clever cleansing bar. The packaging does specify that it’s ‘perfect for all skin types’ but after confessing she definitely picked at her blemishes and was struggling with scarring before discovering it, she named it as the exact reason her skin went from “so textured” to flawless in just two months. Magic.

Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme Lip Gloss

Anyone who's ever applied a coat of the infamous 'Lip Injection' gloss knows: it's not playing around when it comes to plumpness. And yet people still question its volumising abilities to this day. Captioning her TikTok "for the people who don't think it works' with a telling laughing crying emoji, @kardashxdoll took it upon herself (or rather, her poor pal) to prove that just like the name suggests, the results may not be painless, but they're definitely legit.

E.L.F Cosmetics Poreless Putty Primer

Considering "Tatcha Silk Canvas Primer dupe" is a google search with massive traction, it's no surprise a product billed as the skin-smoothing equivalent soon took over TikTok. Because while we love our Tatcha, we'll admit it's more of a special occasion base prep step than an everyday one. Enter: E.L.F's alternative, which @beautybycinthia appears to be a big fan of. 

Revlon Oil Control Volcanic Roller

Nothing screams 'viral video' like the pure satisfaction of watching someone quite literally roll their oil away. That's some shivers-down-the-spine style stuff, right? Attracting over six million views in days, this volcanic stone facial roller completely sold out in the U.S. after being visually reviewed online by @looksbylexington, reaching 'golden ticket' levels of hard to find for a hot (and greasy if you're oil-prone) minute. Luckily for us (and our shine levels) it's back, but for just how long nobody knows - go, go, go!
