If you’re yet to buy a beauty product influenced by BeautyTok, wtf have you been doing, sis? Did the aliens get you? Or are just TikTok intolerant?
Seriously, we joke, but BeautyTok is so addictive and convincing that it’ll have you instantly ordering a slew of skincare products without doing ample due diligence or purchasing a $325 “crowd-pulling perfume” without ever smelling it.
We’re pretty strict on our monthly budgets and financial plans. Still, when a fellow dark-skinned TikTok Queen tells us a particular product works wonders for our skin or body, we get all giddy, throw the budget to the curb, and add everything to cart – it’s a 21st Century weakness.
But that also means we’re good at weeding through the dupes and real-deal finds. And yes, some are seriously weird (and slightly terrifying), but they work as promised and are perfectly priced.
So, if you’re ready to give BeautyTok a try or at least trust us to recommend a cool nifty product, here are 8 of our favorite weird, budget-friendly, and pretty genius beauty products of 2023 – some are even more effective than their luxury counterparts.
OK, this might not be exactly weird. However, the idea of creating fake faux freckles just seems odd (to baby boomers and Gen X, at least).
If you don’t care what others think, though, and want to recreate BeautyTok girlies’ perfect faux freckled looks, this is the product you need to add to your arsenal ASAP!
It contains a defined and sturdy tip that lets you quickly and seamlessly create perfect-looking freckles and a waterproof design that sinks and settles into your skin or foundation perfectly.
We get face and body mud masks, but a mask specifically made for your boobs? What’s that about? Like, do you apply on the skin area and avoid the areolas, or how do you go about masking your breasts?
According to BeautyTok, the only way to rid your boob skin of acne, cellulite, fine lines, strawberry-like pores, and stretch mark is by applying the Anese Calm Your Tits Mask 2-3 times a week.
The formula contains antioxidant-rich green tea, collagen, and soothing honey that won’t exactly reset the clock but will leave your skin feeling smoother, firmer, and blemish-free.
Now tells us how green turns pink because we don’t get it. Did we miss a lesson during science class, or is this just pure witchcraft?
The brand claims it adjusts to your pH and skin tone (like the color-changing gel polish options) to create the perfectly customized shade, but isn’t it just easier to use an actual pink lippie? Or is this the best and coolest way to confuse thy enemies?
OK: This rubber mask looks like a creepy baby Michael Myers, but trust BeautyTok when they say it’ll make your skin look radiant and healthy all week.
It combines a high-concentrated hyaluronic acid ampoule with a cooling, moisture-sealing Cryo Rubber™ mask to help deliver deep moisture and soothe the skin.
It also consists of a complex blend of Allantoin and hydrators to help calm the look of redness and increase the absorption of skin-loving nutrients.
Not weird, but this is the cheapest, most underrated find BeautyTok has ever introduced us to. The Korean-Italy exfoliating towel helps slough off dead, dry skin off your body (please don’t use it on your face), leaving you with baby-smooth skin.
Watch how it works here and see why every BeautyTok girlie has added it to their self-care routine arsenal.
Not weird, but genius! That’s the only way to describe this oil blotter x face massager that works like magic on oily skin. It’s made from washable volcanic stone and instantly soaks up oil from the face, whether you’re wearing six coats of foundation or not.
And cleaning it is easy. Just twist the stone off clockwise, wash it with lukewarm soapy water, and let it air dry overnight.
Whoever came up with this idea needs a freakin’ raise ASAP!
OK: We’ve clearly run out of weird, but if you hate waxing or sugaring your bikini area and underarms (it’s costly and painful) and still want to get rid of the hair, this BeautyTok-approved product is your best bet.
At only $6, this bb can rid your armpits, bikini area, and gams of unwanted razor bumps and ingrown hairs to reveal a smoother, brighter, and hairless body. Plus, it feels like butter on the skin, and who doesn’t love butter?
The #everythingshower product has taken BeautyTok by storm and has been helping girls struggling with armpit odor, dark& patchy underarms, and ingrown hairs reclaim their power.
The formula consists of a blend of lactic and mandelic acid, niacinamide, and xylitol esters that acidify the skin to combat odor, brighten the appearance of discoloration, soften, and reduce the look of ingrown.
It also features a blend of creamy sandalwood, sheer amber, and sensual musk notes, giving you an evocative and irresistible all-day lasting scent!
