“TikTok made me purchase it.” A line so simple might just be the reason many users cannot stop scrolling. The age of the viral product recommendation has dawned.
Though TikTok is certainly still susceptible to sponsored posts from influencers, a large chunk of product recommendations is from normal people who are not financially benefiting if a viewer buys the product.
Rather, many items in viral videos were only hyped up because the person posting was genuinely interested in sharing something great that they found. That authentic consumer experience feels trustworthy, for example, hearing that a friend’s life was changed by that one hair styler.
Millions of users post about their favorite purchases which makes it hard to decipher which of those are worthwhile and which will end up in junk. Well, thankfully you are here, as we will be providing you with the most unique, reliable, and sustainable products below so you’re not wasting your money.
Revlon One Step
Well-liked products on Amazon have thousands of 5star reviews, the number might even reach over 20,000 very soon as they happen to be particularly popular and useful. The Revlon One-Step has over 200,000.
The styling device is aimed to turn wet hair into a bouncy salon-style blowout with minimal frizz. One might say, that is what the Dyson Airwrap does, however, you can buy nine Revlon One Steps at MSRP for the price of one Dyson Airwrap. If you want evidence that Revlon works just as well, you can find it all over TikTok.
Bissell Little Green
Cleaning TikTok along with pet TikTok are the backbones of the app. Bissell’s portable multipurpose upholstery cleaner has users of both sectors captivated. The Little Green uses a dedicated spot formula, and water, accompanied by a high-suction brush tool to lift stains from carpets as well as rugs, furniture, and car interiors.
FluentPet Talking Dog Buttons
Made famous by Sheepadoodle @whataboutbunny, FluentPet is a system of buttons that say things like “toy” or “outside,” in all likelihood allowing pets to tell express what they need.
Not all dogs may care to learn to press buttons, despite understanding the words, however, FluentPet could be a cool addition to your pet’s enrichment tools.
The Pink Stuff
TikTok users have been taken by storm by the powers of The Pink Stuff, a non-toxic “miracle cleaning paste,” on stains that no one has an idea of how to deal with.
The Pink Stuff’s success rate is impressively high with burnt spills on glass cooktops, stubborn streaks on cookware/sinks, as well as moldy rings around faucets. On top of that, it involves far less elbow grease than a Magic Eraser.
Farberware countertop dishwasher
This portable from Farberware can be rested on your countertop and doesn’t require hooking up to a water source (as the built-in water tank can be filled with an included jug/hose). Inside the 21.9 x, 20.9 x 22.4-inch cube lie slots for a variety of plates as well as bowls, along with a cutlery rack. The digital display offers five modes: normal, rapid, fruit wash, baby care, as well as glass.
The butt lifting leggings
The iconic butt-lifting leggings are probably the first viral TikTok item that many can recall. Since then, this pair has amassed over 80,000 reviews on Amazon.
At their core, they are cheap Amazon athleisure but might not make it through serious squat sessions.
After using this product, you would have to wonder how you managed to ever rely on paper towels to tidy your space after your morning toast. Not as powerful as your full-sized handheld vacuum, this mini one produces enough suction to grab common debris for example, crumbs as well as pieces of hair. It should run for 90 minutes before you have to swap the double AA batteries.
Caudalíe Instant Detox Mask
Caudalíe’s Instant Detox Mask has been around for years; however, it took off on TikTok and caught the attention of influential users.
After a few minutes of applying the mask begins to highlight every single pore as it attempts to purify. Though the mask’s ability to visibly reduce pore size is hazy, most users happen to notice a glow afterward. For other users, less-obvious pores the next time they do the mask.
Mini bag sealer
#SnackTok is high on these mini portable bag sealers, which use heat to bond the two sides of a bag. Think pantry snacks bread, pet food, as well as produce, along with non-food uses like sealing a toiletries bag for a flight.
It’s a double pack, so you can keep one in the house and stash the other one away with your camping supplies or in your car.
Emily Mariko’s go-to cookware will be an aesthetic boost for your kitchen, this comes in a selection of hip muted hues. Cooking on a ceramic surface is said to be healthier while being more durable than Teflon. The set includes a frying pan, saucepan, sauté pan, as well as a dutch oven.
ChomChom pet hair remover
Like an advanced lint roller, the ChomChom tackles fur on surfaces like furniture as well as carpets without wasting adhesive strips. This works similarly to the wood/wire lint roller that was also viral, however, this stores the hair in a compartment rather than rolling it into a ball that has to be picked up. Nearly 100,000 Amazon users are also impressed by this.
A staple on sustainability TikTok, the silicone Stasher bag has become quite the versatile kitchen hack replacing single-use sandwich bags. Countless users have posted their experiences trying a quick zero-waste popcorn recipe using a Stasher bag to pop kernels in the microwave.
These pin-like adjustable buttons can pierce denim, and corduroy, and do more to create a snugger yet asymmetrical fit without needing a belt. Or, the shoelace trick.
This could create a bunching effect, that depends on how big the pants were on you originally. However, it is a quick fix that does not need sewing.
Dash Mini Waffle Maker
Quick recipe opportunities are endless with the mini waffle maker from Dash. Despite it being a waffle maker, users have managed to find creative ways to utilize the four-inch nonstick iron to make cheesy garlic bread, scrambled eggs, cinnamon buns, quesadillas, and many breakfast sandwiches.
You could try a generalized recipe that you would like to cut down to personal size. Or, you could just scroll through countless ideas just for this Dash.
Mirrored digital alarm clock
TikTok has managed to revive the humble nightstand alarm clock. One of a handful of identical models on Amazon, the mirrored digital one is minimalist in looks while being maximalist in function.
The giant numbers are clear as day and easy to read, with the ability of adjustable brightness for when the room’s dark. Three USB ports turn it into a charger, dimming the display enough can also turn it into a makeup mirror.
Dish soap dispenser caddy
Who doesn’t love a good organization hack and a kitchen hack? This dish soap dispenser checks both boxes. It solves the lifelong quest of finding something better to perform the tasks with a soggy sponge as well as to store them on the sink ledge. A quick pump keeps soapy hands from grabbing a bottle, the uniform drops could also help your dish soap last longer.
Thrive Cosmetics Brilliant Eye Brightener
Thrive Cosmetics Brilliant Eye Brightener didn’t exactly blow up the old-fashioned way, rather it was the ads. However, the cream-to-powder highlight continues to shine as more and more users enthuse its working coupled with the ads.
The brightening stick goes past its shimmery effect by using natural emollients like macadamia along with meadowfoam seed oil to hydrate the eye area as well as smooth fine lines.
Bottle emptying caps
Wasted conditioner? In this economy? This set of bottle emptying caps allows bottles to balance face-down to drain the remnants that you are not able to squeeze out. The kit comes with six adapters and two stands, fitting bottles holding skincare, hair products, or lotion all the way to dish soap as well as detergent.
Cloud-shaped key magnet
Three magnets are housed inside the cloud, offering a sturdy home for multiple sets of keys. Installation requires just a smooth wall along with the included double-sided adhesive (Command Strips may be safer for paint).
Rechargeable flameless lighter
Flameless lighters have replaced traditional flame with a plasma beam to provide a wind-resistant, smokeless light. 500 lights later, the user can recharge it via USB.
A handful of flameless lighters have been part of popular videos, the one here is long enough to reach down into depleted jar candles and has nearly 19,000 five-star reviews on Amazon.
Flipable pickle jar and strainer
The famous “pickle jar flip thing” (according to TikTok autofill) does take after an hourglass in its shape as well as mechanism. When you flip to the straining side it allows you to grab a pickle without having to dunk your fingers in juice. Then you can flip it back to re-soak the pickles in their liquid.
The one from @paytopotatoe’s original viral video has sold out (as viral items tend to do), so you can try an identical alternative for now.
