No one can escape the black hole of ads on social media and we’re not just talking Instagram. It’s Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, Tik Tok, YouTube, you name it, there’s no escaping from it. However, behind the unnecessary ads are some great products that are being recommended to us. This including, advertising through influencers, brands and ordinary people. While it might seem like just hype, we can’t help but wonder if these beauty products are worthy of their newfound status. To test the social media consensus, we list five products that we have tried for ourselves that are definitely worth the recognition!
The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution
The brand The Ordinary is no stranger to social media. With its affordable prices that are often cheaper than drugstore brands, their marketing focuses on the potency of the ingredients. Although they reveal little to nothing on how to use their products, it took social media by storm as it proved itself to be highly effective. One product that particularly took off is The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution. Also known as the vampire mask due to its dark blood red color, this highly concentrated solution acts as an exfoliating facial to revitalize and tone.
L’Oreal Lash Sensational Sky High Mascara
Another wild before and after tiktok video that is now viral is people’s review of L’Oreal’s Sky High Mascara. As the name suggests, this old-school mascara offers sky high lengths and volume to your lashes. What’s astounding is how your lashes just continue to grow after every coat of mascara. Perfect for many Asian lashes which grow straight, this social media holy grail will surely be on the type of your Wishlist.
Drunk Elephant T.L.C Sukari Babyfacial
It seems like social media just can’t get enough of Drunk Elephant. Launched in 2013 but only recently has Drunk Elephant been pioneering the beauty scene worldwide. As If it wasn’t foreshadowing enough, AHA/BHA is quite a big deal in the world of skincare. Ultimately, they are made up of molecules that attract water and helps improve the skin’s moisture content. The Drunk Elephant T.L.C Sukari Babyfacial mask is an at-home facial that helps gently exfoliate the pore lining and resurfaces your skin by getting rid of built-up dead skin cells.
Chanel La Crème Main Texture Riche
Okay, 440 dollars for a hand cream does sound excessive. We’re not arguing with you there. BUT, have you ever laid your eyes on a hand cream that looks this chic and elegant? This Chanel hand cream is giving us major EOS lip balm hype vibes but ten folds more expensive. So if you’re letting out your sassy bougie style out, this hand cream might be the perfect one for you. On top of that, the formula is actually great. It’s non-greasy but also very nourishing and the scent is subtle yet lingers for a long time.
Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in Pillow Talk
We all love a good MLBB shade. If you’re unsure of what that means, it stands for ‘my lips but better’. Put it simply a nude color. In theory, it should make sense that nude colors should look universally good for all skin tones, but that’s hardly the case. Some nude lipsticks can look washed out for others while looking vibrant for some. But a lipstick that the NANA team loves and can guarantee that it looks amazing on all skin tones is Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in Pillow Talk. Their most famous shade Pillow Talk is a great subtle dusty rose that compliments all makeup looks. The shade’s popularity speaks volumes as it takes up a large part of the makeup department in CT including blush, lip liners and more!
