2020 is the year of many things—big and small, good and bad. Through it all, there has been one constant in many of our lives: TikTok. What was initially a place that we mined for short comedy sketches and dance challenges has quickly turned into a personal shopping tool for us.
Thanks to TikTok, we've discovered (and rediscovered) all sorts of nifty products from a countertop dish soap dispenser to a face wash whipper. Yes, you read that correctly.
When we first saw this cute little canister making the rounds on our feed, we were pretty skeptical. (What is this silly thing and why can't these people just use their hands and water like the rest of us?)
However, after watching the fourth or fifth video of someone gleefully whipping their boring 'ol cleanser into a fluffy cream that rivals the dense foam caps you typically only see on your favorite holiday drinks, you start to wonder if you need a Nooni Marshmallow Whip Maker in your life. #Tiktokmademebuyit is a real condition, y'all.
The aptly named Whip Maker sort of resembles a manual coffee grinder and like a manual grinder, it also requires a bit of hand cranking. To use it, you simply squeeze a pea-sized amount of your usual face wash into the perforated cap and add water to the base before pumping the top repeatedly until you get the foam to your desired consistency. Note: You can experiment with the amount of water to adjust how thick or thin you want your foam.
The cloudy lather feels rich and impossibly light on your skin. Plus, it spreads like a dream and rinses off clean. Major sensorial upgrade aside, the biggest pro is that you end up using less cleanser over time and some resourceful folks have pointed out that you can use any leftover foam (which you will definitely have) to wash your makeup brushes.
Hey, at seven bucks a pop, it's a small investment for something we use every day.
