TikTok is filled with countless viral videos of beauty products, but are they any good? We round up the TikTok-famous products you should actually try.

Alongside mind-blowing food hacks and impressive renovations, the ever-growing TikTok is home to an incredibly large range of beauty videos. 

So, it’s no surprise, then, that a number of beauty products go viral on TikTok from time to time. While some are slightly questionable (we don’t recommend attempting an at-home lash lift, filing your own teeth or scrubbing your body raw), there are some products that are well worth the hype.

Here, we round up the best TikTok-recommended beauty, skincare and hair care products that are worth spending your money on.

  • Dior Addict Lip Glow Oil

    Dior Lip Oil, Best TikTok Beauty Skincare Haircare 2022
    Best TikTok-recommended products: Dior Lip Oil

    Shiny, nourishing and free from the tell-tale stickiness of old school lip glosses – the Dior Addict Lip Glow Oil is exactly as good as TikTok has been saying for months. Softly sumptuous, it gives gloss, hydration and a sheer slick of colour. Sold!  

    Shop Dior Addict Lip Glow Oil, 29.50

    Best TikTok-recommended products: Refy Brow Sculpt

    Influencer Jess Hunt’s brand, Refy, is well on its way to becoming a global phenomenon having launched in the US earlier this month. Punching well above its price point, the entire range is based on easy-to-use formulas and soft, creamy finishes. 

    The Brow Sculpt, Hunt’s secret to her signature fluffy brow aesthetic, is a long-wearing eyebrow gel that sets hairs in place for hours.

  • La Roche-Posay Anthelios Invisible Fluid SPF50

    Best TikTok Beauty Skincare Haircare 2022 La Roche Posay Anthelios UVMUNE 400 Invisible Fluid Suncream SPF50
    Best TikTok-recommended products: La Roche-Posay Anthelios Invisible Fluid Suncream SPF50

    A truly invisible sunscreen that doesn’t leave a white cast, require aggressive rubbing to disperse into the skin or cause reactions on sensitive and sensitised skin? It really does sound too good to be true. The new formula from La Roche-Posay ticks every box, plus, the bum-bag sized bottle makes it a no-brainer for active holidays, work bags and beyond. 

    Shop La Roche-Posay Anthelios Invisible Fluid SPF50 at Boots, £18

    A lightweight, easily absorbed oil, this small bottle of oil is far more cost-effective than you might think – senior beauty writer Morgan Fargo has had hers for over four months and hasn’t reached the halfway mark yet. 

    Tasked with repairing damaged, stressed hair, this oil can be used on damp or dry hair to lock in moisture, add a non-greasy shine and strengthen the internal hair structure.

    Best TikTok-recommended products: BaByliss Thermo Ceramic Hot Rollers

    The hot roller revolution is happening on TikTok and it’s happening first. A staple of the 80s, heated rollers are one of the ways users are creating the fluffy, bouncy blow-drys that dominate style lists today. 

    These Babyliss heated rollers are touted on TikTok as being the ones to purchase thanks to the quick heating time, hair protecting ceramic coating and variety of roller sizes. We couldn’t agree more.

    Best TikTok Beauty Skincare Haircare 2022, The Ordinary Glycolic Acid
    Best TikTok-recommended products: The Ordinary Glycolic Acid 7%

    A product initially meant for the face, The Ordinary’s Glycolic Acid recently went viral for treating dandruff and flaking scalps, cracked heels and dry elbows. A common exfoliant found in skincare, the acid can help loosen the water bonds between dead skin cells, causing them to slough off, leaving softer, more luminous skin beneath.

    The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution
    Best TikTok-recommended beauty products: The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution

    Ever since this solution by The Ordinary landed on TikTok, it’s constantly been in and out of stock. While the deep red formula makes it look scary, it’s now made something of a name for itself on the platform. Its combination of AHAs and BHAs work together to exfoliate skin and clear congestion. And when the Stylist beauty team tried it, they found their skin felt a lot softer after 10 minutes – but approach with caution if your skin is sensitive.

    Shop The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution at Cult Beauty, £6.30

    Best TikTok-recommended products: CeraVe SA Smoothing Cleanser

    A favourite amongst the Stylist beauty team, this cult CeraVe cleanser contains salicylic acid to cleanse and smooth out rough, bumpy skin but it’s still gentle enough to use every day. The cleanser shot to popularity when Hyram Yarbro, also known as Skincare By Hyram, recommended it and it frequently pops up in numerous videos.

    Maybelline Lash Sensational Sky High Mascara
    Best TikTok-recommended beauty products: Maybelline Lash Sensational Sky High Mascara

    Maybelline originally planned to launch this mascara in the UK in April of last year but when it went viral on TikTok, they brought its release forward. The power of TikTok, right? The intense black formula and bendy conical wand team up to deliver super long lashes. Ever since it went viral, the mascara has been in and out of stock at various retailers so if you see it, grab it.

    Infused with squalane for hydration, this primer has been doing the rounds for giving skin a smooth and even finish before users go on to apply make-up. As well as its impressive formula, you could say it’s also beauty ASMR. There are countless TikTok videos showing how the putty formula comes out of a fresh tub. Admittedly, they are pretty satisfying to watch.

  • Denman D3 Medium Classic Styling Brush

    Denman D3 Medium Classic Styling Brush
    Best TikTok-recommended beauty products: Denman D3 Medium Classic Styling Brush

    Classic Denman brushes have long been praised for their gentle approach to detangling hair but one viral TikTok video showed how good they are to help define curl patterns. User @makenzieandmalia posted a video showing that the key is using a brush underneath your hair to twist it into the perfect curl. While this differs according to hair texture and curl type and can probably be done with other brushes, it’s worth having a go.

    Shop Denman D3 Medium Classic Styling Brush at Lookfantastic, £8.50

    L'Oréal Paris Telescopic Mascara
    Best TikTok-recommended beauty products: L'Oréal Paris Telescopic Mascara

    Another mascara entry: this L’Oréal Paris mascara was one of the platform’s most popular options before Sky High came along. It has a flexible brush for precise application and sweeps lashes into a fluttery, long perfect curl. However, users say you’ll only experience the true benefits of this mascara if you get the black formula.
