Over the past year, TikTok has undoubtedly served its purpose as one of the most addicting pastimes ever, and for good reason! Not only has TikTok introduced everyone to catchy trends and new talent, but it has also become a creative hub for content creators, makeup artists, and a place to discover the latest beauty products.

While scrolling through your For You Page (FYP) is definitely one way to go about finding viral TikTok beauty products, I’ve compiled a list of my favorite must-haves that you need to add to your beauty routine ASAP. From nourishing skincare to simplifying your hair routine, trust me, you’re going to want to try these.

CeraVe is a budget-friendly brand with ingredients that are even better! That’s why this cleanser is one of the best beauty products on TikTok right now; because its simple, yet effective formula is sure to suit almost any skin type. Perfect for those with acne-prone skin but able to be used for any skin type, the salicylic acid in this product ensures that excessive sebum production is kept to a minimum while brightening your glow. On top of that, the product comes at a super-affordable price point. No wonder this TikTok has almost a million likes!

The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution

This product by The Ordinary has sold out thanks to this viral TikTok, but it has come back in stock right on time for you to incorporate this chemical exfoliant into your skincare routine. Unlike a physical exfoliant which can cause skin irritation, a chemical exfoliant like The Ordinary’s promotes skin cell turnover to even out your complexion. Pro tip: start by using it once every two weeks to avoid overdoing it with the powerful formula.

Korean skincare has always been ahead of the curve, so it’s no surprise that this color correcting treatment by Dr. Jart has gone viral. Struggling with redness? This product is for you. By using its green tint to cancel out redness, you can rely on this product to leave you with a perfectly even skin tone. With the added bonus of SPF protection, this product is sure to give you the glowy skin you’ve been wishing for all year round.

Much like the viral TikTok feta pasta, this product is literally everywhere, and for good reason. Unlike a normal hair dryer, this styling tool makes getting a salon blowout as easy as possible at a way more affordable price — plus, it makes getting ready in the morning before class way easier. Simply use the tool like you would a styling brush, and you are good to go!

Freckles are no longer just for summertime! Faux freckles are one of the many viral TikTok beauty trends you may have seen over the past year, and with this product by Freck Beauty, you can dab a few dots on your face to achieve a natural, freckled look. Simply decide where you want the dots to go, then use your fingertip to sheer out or distribute the look wherever you want, and voila!

It’s safe to say that TikTok has opened my eyes to some of the best and most innovative beauty products on the market right now! Whether you’re looking to revamp your beauty routine for fall or make getting ready for class a little easier, these are the viral TikTok products you need. The best part is, many of them are super affordable and perfect for your college budget. Score!
