Over the past year, TikTok has put us onto countless life and beauty hacks we will forever be grateful for. And with the world slowly opening up, it’s time to put our newfound beauty knowledge to the test. We know how easy it is to fall down the TikTok rabbit hole, so we took the liberty of choosing the top 10 buzzy products so you can cut back on screen time.
1. The Ordinary AHA + BHA Peeling Solution
Watching TikTokers perform their skincare routines has become such a fun hobby, but entertainment aside, this popular peel will rid your skin of dead skin and debris you didn’t know you had. After a few minutes you will have a softer and brighter complexion.
2. Milk Makeup Hydro Grip Primer
This gamechanging gel primer will soothe and smooth uneven texture to create a flawless base for your foundation. Most of the over 2,100 five-star reviews on Sephora rave about its effectiveness in extending the wear time of their makeup, blurring pores and softening skin. Makeup expert @caradowntonn on TikTok says this is her “go-to” primer.
3. ILIA Super Serum Skin Tint SPF 40 Foundation
Sometimes all you need is a veil of color to even things out. We love this tinted serum because of its dewy finish and mineral SPF. There are 30 shades to choose from and you can use the shade match tool to help you pick the best hue.
4. Dr. Jart Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment SPF 30
Prone to redness? Meet your new holy grail. This hydrating cream corrects red undertones and any ruddy patches so you can skip makeup altogether if you’re not in the mood. Plus, it has SPF 30 and provides a smooth, matte finish. (A little goes a long way so the jar will last you a while.)
5. ONE/SIZE by Patrick Starrr turn Up The Base Versatile Powder Foundation
Achieve a buttery, matte finish with this powder foundation. The color diffuses seamlessly into your skin and offers medium to full coverage depending how much you apply. The budgeproof formula will last for a full day of work—and then some. With 32 shades to choose from, you are sure to find the perfect match.
6. Peace Out Blemish Balm Cleanser
If your skin is on the oilier side, this balm will zap excess sebum and impurities from your face without stripping away any natural moisture. For best results, use it on damp skin for 30 to 60 seconds to cleanse any lingering residue on your skin and activate the exfoliating ingredients.
7. Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen SPF 40
Protect your beautiful face with high-quality SPF and your future-self will thank you. This sheer sunscreen doesn’t require excessive rubbing to blend into your skin because it applies clear. Plus, it’s a great base for your foundation.
8. Olaplex No. 4 Bond Maintenance Shampoo
Yes, it’s worth the money and no, you won’t regret it. Olaplex products are results-driven to make your hair stronger, healthier and more luscious. The bond maintenance duo repairs and protects against daily wear and tear on your locks, while delivering deep moisture to dry ends.
9. Laneige Glowy Makeup Serum
Any glazed donut makeup fanatics out there? This one’s for you. Beauty guru @mikaylanogueira swears by this serum for that highlighted aesthetic. Use it as the last step in your skincare routine for a radiant final look.
10. Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil
