TikTok Made Me Buy It

If you're a TikTok user, your internet buying habits are likely to have altered significantly since you first downloaded the app. While many people think of TikTok as a place where teens go to do goofy dances, the app is much more than that and can have you saying "TikTok made me buy it."

TikTok, in particular, has become a paradise for online shopping, with a large area of the app dedicated to users discussing things they've purchased as a result of TikTok, and we can't seem to get enough of them. It's like we're stuck in a never-ending loop that we can't seem to break, but let's face it, we don't want to. These items are popular on the app and therefore also popular on marketplaces such as Amazon and Sephora.

It's impossible to resist clicking "purchase" because of the accessibility. Thanks to TikTok, you've got us again! From skincare to bathroom essentials to apparel and jewelry copies for more expensive labels, you'll be surprised at how many things you'll feel motivated to buy for yourself. What's fantastic (or hazardous, depending on your perspective) is that most of these items are rather reasonable, so you won't be completely broke until you buy them all. 

The number of popular TikTok items is endless, but we've compiled a list of some of our favorites that we think you'll love as well. Get your credit card and yourself set because you're going to want to start shopping for everything from a fashionable charging station for all your electronics to the right product to avoid razor burn. Continue reading to see everything TikTok made us buy!

Rope Lights with LEDs

LED rope lights are the way to go if you want to change up the vibe in your bedroom. They appear to be owned by almost every TikTok user, and what's even cooler is that many people provide simple instructions for making custom colors. These lights are a relatively reasonable purchase for anyone who wants to check them out for themselves, costing around $25 for each set

The Ordinary Peeling Solution with 30% AHA and 2% BHA

Skincare enthusiasts may already be familiar with the brand The Ordinary, but now that nearly the whole product range is trending on TikTok, everyone else is aware too. The AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution, which comes in an appealing pinky-red color, is one of the most popular of the products. It's an exfoliating peel that you apply and then washes off after 10 minutes. We strongly advise that you perform a skin patch test first and spread it rather thin!

Chunky Gold Hoop Earrings

TikTok is a big fan of low-cost knockoffs of higher-end brands. These massive gold hoop earrings are one of the dupes. While we can't guarantee that these earrings will last forever, they do have a 4.6-star rating on Amazon, which says a lot. They're also ridiculously cheap, so you can't go wrong with them.

As one Amazon user put it, "This is probably my fourth piece of this jewelry, and it will most certainly not be my last. I'm still quite pleased with their items." That sounds great to us!

The Bug Bite Thing

This one is definitely out of the usual, but we can't say we aren't interested.

The TikTok-trending Bug Bite Thing is said to suck the venom/saliva out of a bug bite, relieving itching. It acts like a vacuum cleaner for bug bites!

Although the reviews are divided, it is still rising on TikTok. Perhaps the effectiveness is determined by the type of bug bite on your skin. On Amazon, one bad reviewer tried it on her face, which we strongly advise refraining from doing.

Water Bottle with a Stylish Time Marker

We've all seen timer water bottles, but the majority of them aren't really attractive. That's where ARC Bottle's entry comes in because it's actually quite cute.

This 32oz bottle with a gold cap, which you can get on Amazon, has time markers for the morning and afternoon which means it will require a refill twice a day.

One of the advantages of having a bottle this size instead of a 64oz bottle is that it fits into most cup holders and can be carried around with you throughout the day.

Revlon Volumizer Hot Air Brush and One-Step Hair Dryer

We're going to say something controversial: apparently, TikTok users prefer this Revlon hair dryer brush to the Dyson one, and it's a fraction of the price.

This product not only dries but also styles your hair (but you shouldn't use it while it's dripping wet). You'll be able to obtain a salon blowout from the convenience of your own home.

Charging Station for Apple Products

If you own an Apple product, this TikTok-trending charging station is ideal for you. It allows you to charge your iPhone, AirPods, and Apple Watch all at once. Not only is it convenient, but it will also help you arrange your desk or bedside table while using fewer outlets.

What's even better is that you can put your phone on the charger horizontally, allowing you to do some streaming while it charges.

Vibrating Scalp Massager 

Who doesn't enjoy a relaxing head massage? We all do, and we're not alone, as this vibrating scalp massager is currently trending on TikTok. It has two vibration levels and rubber points that exfoliate your scalp to make your shower experience even better. Simply shampoo your hair and use the massager to thoroughly spread the shampoo and give yourself a thorough cleaning. All you'll need is an AA battery to get started! That's all there is to it!

Kabuki Foundation Makeup Brush

People apply foundation in a variety of ways, ranging from a blender sponge to their fingertips. This Kabuki Foundation Brush, which you can buy on Amazon, is another to add to the list. The bristles are dense but gentle, resulting in a smooth and even application on your skin.

Vacuum Cleaner (Mini)

We mean it when we say "mini." This handheld vacuum cleaner is about the size of a three-inch cube, not a dust buster. Clean up crumbs from your desk or furnishings with this little man. It's really simple to use and can be purchased on Amazon.

The Iconic "TikTok Leggings"

These butt-scrunch leggings have been all over TikTok, whether you like them or not. These leggings hug your butt cheeks like no other, and they also appear to help raise them. Then there's the ruched seam, which adds a special touch to the leggings. They're probably worth a shot for around $30 a pair on Amazon.


To sum it up, to go viral on TikTok, you don't have to be a celebrity or influencer. As you can see from several of the videos on TikTok, these are regular individuals talking about a product they like. 

We hope you liked this article and the things that TikTok made us buy, and you can also search for these or more items on TikTok and get your hands on these trending items. You can follow us on Instagram and check our website for the latest updates and blogs!
