Ah, TikTok. I avoided it for a while, but quarantine has got us all making rash decisions, like tie-dying perfectly good sheets, learning a new language, or cutting their own bangs. It’s an easy thing to get hooked on, once the algorithm actually figures it out for you. And while I can now pick and choose what I watch, popular videos still get into my feed regularly. Those videos include #TikTokMadeMeBuyIt, a collection of videos of people reviewing products that other users recommended. It’s like if Scouted were run by teens and understood youth culture. Here, you’ll find random beauty products, cleaning items, articles of clothing, and more. I’ve rounded up a handful that can be extremely useful for people over the age of 20.
Soap Daddy Dual Action Soap Dispenser
A refillable soap dispenser is one thing but this one— from the makers of the Scrub Daddy — takes it to a whole new level. The top was made to dispense the perfect amount of soap directly onto whatever sponge you use by pressing down on the flower-shaped top. That’s all fine and dandy, bottom is where the fun part starts. Pick the bottle up and give the middle part a squeeze, and soap will be dispensed into your pot, pan, or sink with ease. No more fiddling with flipping full soap bottles upside down.
Cicapair™ Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment SPF 30
Not to toot my own horn, but I’ve been using Dr. Jart’s Cicapair since it launched. This cream goes on green, but over time sinks into your skin and leaves you with a dewy, airbrushed look. It changes from green to match your natural skin color, reducing redness and lessening the look of pores. It’s what you wear when you don’t feel like doing your makeup. Plus, it has a built-in SPF 30.
Band-Aid Hydro Seal All-Purpose Bandages
It may seem strange to put blister bandages on your face, but here me out. The Hydro Seal bandages from Band-Aid act as a breathable barrier for your skin. It allows blemishes to heal while keeping germs and bacteria out. They’re waterproof and are meant to stay on all day, though TikTok-ers tend to leave them on overnight after cutting the extra large bandage down to size. In the morning, a white bubble will have formed over the blemish and some have seen incredible healing results.
Magic Platinum Shaving Powder
This shave powder mixes into a paste (though it can get a bit messy) and will remove hair with ease in about 10 minutes. Just lather it on, wait it out, and wipe away. If you can’t get waxed, this is the next best thing.
The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution
This is one of my favorite masks and I’m happy to see the youths have found it. It’s a chemical exfoliator, which means instead of using physical grit which can damage the skin, it uses a combo of an AHA and BHA to remove dead skin. Yes, it looks like blood. No, it’s isn’t made of blood.
National Geographic Hobby Tumbler
A rock tumbler is a great way to engage your kids (or fellow adults) without having to go anywhere. Send them outside to gather some cool looking rocks, toss them in this tumbler with water and the included grit, and turn thousands of years of natural erosion into a few hours of tumbling and you’ll end up with beautiful, smooth rocks.
ChomChom Roller Dog Hair Remover
This isn’t your typical lint roller. The ChomChom roller can be used and reused with no sticky paper. Just roll it onto your hairy items and empty the chamber when it’s full. You’ll be amazed at how much hair this little thing picks up.
Bissell Multi-Purpose Portable Carpet and Upholstery Cleaner
Did I ever think I would spend time watching people vacuum things on the internet? No, but here we are. The Bissel SpotClean Pro is a powerful mini-vac that will suck up and scrub even the most stubborn of spots.
C7skates Premium Quad Roller Skate
Roller skating is a really great solo workout so it’s no surprise that it’s taken TikTok by storm, especially for teens obsessed with “vintage” things. These retro-inspired skates are comfortable, durable, and actually look pretty great.
