TikTok is such a fever dream. Some people tune in to watch the bust moves of Addison Rae and Charli D’Amelio, while others like to watch trends (indie sleaze, over; blokecore, in), share personal traumas, or experience sneaky drama. of strangers. We? We like to dive into the abyss of the shopping scene. It can get pretty intense, to say the least – TikTok is known for knocking everything from feta cheese to petroleum jelly off store shelves, but there are some more obscure product discoveries as well. (Not too long ago, we found absolutely flawless pole dancing cowboy boots on the app.)
While we love a pair of edgy stilettos, we’ve moved on to some bolder and better ones. TikTok teaches us things — whether it’s upgrading our cooking skills or a seemingly effortless beauty secret — and we’re forever grateful to those who share the tools and tips of the trades. We’re talking spatulas that can dice vegetables, ice cream rollers to cure our hangover face, and even neon yellow cleaning goo for hard-to-reach messes. (Have you gotten into Tok cleanup? It’s a wonderland. There’s even Tok crime scene cleanup…)
The products promoted by our favorite TikTokers range from cheap to luxury, because we all want to save money here, but sometimes we’re armed to splurge on things that are really worth it. All of the following have an average rating of four stars or more, great customer reviews, and thousands of TikTok video views and likes to back them up. We trust the folks at TikTok, well done.
The Ruk vegetable chopper
This helicopter is completely insane. It has 11 interchangeable blades for ultimate cooking control; all you have to do is place your vegetable and press it. Besides being a vegetable chopper, it is an egg separator, egg cutter, lemon squeezer, julienne cutter, etc. Watching people shred in the kitchen on TikTok actually makes us want to eat a vegetable. That’s how you know it’s something special.

If you’re big on Tok beauty, you’ve probably seen makeup artists lose control of Tom Ford’s viral, glistening Soleil Balm Frost.

It’s a moisturizing, pearly balm that coats your lips in sexy micro-sparkles, but is subtle enough to wear to dinner with your partner’s parents.

Stradivarius slim mom jeans
TikTokers love to share their purchases, and for some reason, we love watching them try on stuff, from swimsuits to vintage jackets. But some clothes stand out because they look good on everyone, and for something as hard to find as the perfect pair of jeans, that can lead to on-the-spot influence. One of our editors stumbled upon TikTok’s famous Stradivarius Slim Mom jeans while trying to find the perfect skinny jeans to transition from the skinny jeans era to a more modern fit, and never looked back – and they’ve been a best-selling VICE player ever since.
