Whether you like it or not, social media platforms help shape our culture and drive our habits. TikTok has become a powerful force due in large part to how easy it is to create and share content. And a lot of that content has been incredibly informative and helpful. As a commerce editor, I get swept up in what people are purchasing. I’ve fallen deep into “Amazon Finds,” and while I’ve written about many over the past year, these are the ones that came up routinely by several high-profile creators.
Lots of beauty Tokers love a facial mister. This Nano one is tops. The technology this one is designed with splits the contents within (water, lotion, serum, etc.) into itty bitty particles to make them more effective in truly aborting into the skin. Plus, it’s super refreshing. This means that overall, your face will maintain that moisture and hydration longer. You can even measure the oil levels on your skin. Read the display on the LCD screen, and see where you need a little extra help, be it a moisturizer for dry patches or an astringent for oil control. This is a great item to add to your beauty routine, especially if you have had a long day. The Nano Mister helps clean your skin of excess makeup and even dirt and grim. If you’re looking to get a sparkling complexion this is a great way to start.
Remembering passwords, codes, and numbers is hard, especially if there are many to keep track of. The Fingerprint Padlock can save at least one headache. This convenient item made the rounds on TikTok lists as an absolute Cap item. One of these little locks’ best features is that they can remember almost 100 different fingerprints. Even though it’s easy to recharge, you won’t be doing that often. Built with lower power consumption, this lock’s battery can support up to six months on standby mode or two months with just one charge. And don’t worry, it stays locked when the battery dies. It’s made of sturdy stainless steel to resist different elements and even someone trying to tamper with it. Connect the smart padlock to the app and register all the fingerprints you need. You can also use the app to unlock, set authorized users, and check the last 1000 unlock activities. I highly recommend this for the gym locker. This has been a huge lifesaver for me.
I’m the worst about candle upkeep. My best friend often gets on me about not trimming the wicks of all the candles I review. It’s a problem because there are so many in my collection and it’s unsafe. Calary’s Candle Accessory Set is not only essential to stop a potential fire hazard but crucial to the longevity of your candles. It’s also fancy and charming to look at. This set contains a wick dipper, wick trimmer, and snuffer. All things needed to keep your candles in tip-top shape. Made from stainless steel, they won’t rust or be harmed by the heat. Wick trimming prevents sparks from flying and excess black smoke when burning. This is a great gift to give alongside a beautiful candle. Very thoughtful and helpful; I see why this has over 5,00 happy customers.
This was all over TikTok at the high of “lockdown,” and it’s remained a best seller. There was a whole period of time where MyKirei’s Foaming Japanese Flower Hand Soap was completely sold out. My working theory is, if you’re going to be washing your hands all day, it might as well be fun. Each pump delivers just the perfect amount of foam in the adorable shape of a Yuzu blossom. The bottle is designed so no water is required to get a good lather going. And it’s made with traditional Japanese ingredients to help hydrate, nourish, and brighten your skin each use. With a light fresh citrus scent, every handwash is a delight. The bottle is sustainable and can be refilled with 100% recyclable pouches. This is all vegan-friendly and cruelty-free too.
There’s something elegant and simple about this Digital Alarm Clock, LED, and Mirror Desk combo. It’s appeared in many TikToks, as part of both easy elevated decor and cool tech items. And it does indeed look pleasing to the eye on a desk or end table. You also have the option to lay it flat and hang on the wall. With no sound and a bright and clear display, it’s easy to see the time at all three levels of brightness. It’s smarter than your average clock, too, because it has a photosensitive sensor and will adjust to the environment if you want it to. Charge two devices at the same time with the dual USB ports and let that snooze button ride for 5 minutes to an hour. And if you’re a very heavy sleeper, don’t worry about not hearing the alarm, it’s very loud.
I became a crazy candle person during “lockdown,” thanks to Bijou. I feel like a lot of people did as well. Spending more time at home you want to create an ambiance and a scented candle can certainly help with that. These electric candle lighters from Reidea became, no pun intended, a hot item. This rechargeable lighter is as convenient as they come, especially if you have a lot of candles to light. You no longer have to worry about gas, fluid, or even flames. And these little wonder sticks have staying power with the ability to hold sixty uses off of one charge. Use them outdoors, indoors, and wherever you need a spark. There’s a safety lock for those who live with curious kids. Just remember to store it in a clean, dry, and safe space.
Pet owners, you haven’t lived until you’ve used a ChomChom. It’s not only transformed my life, but the lives of the pets I cohabitate with as well. Both are sheddy little ones. One is a cute young cat, and the other is my senior Jack Russell. While I love having them on the sofa and around the house, I’m not a fan of being covered in fur after. The ChomChom has been such a blessing. No more sticky tape or adhesive paper needed to solve this hairy nightmare. Just roll it back and forth on the desired area and watch the fluff disappear. The waste compartment can hold quite a large amount of pet hair and doesn’t need to be emptied too often. But when it does, doing so is a breeze. The best part is that no batteries or power are needed to get going. The ChomChom picks up dust and any other unwanted bits too. You’ll never need another roller or fur picker-upper after you experience the ChomChom. Plus, it’s the best pet hair remover, according to our readers.
A lot of these items on this list made the cut because of their accessibility. This cordless vacuum certainly fits that bill. Bring this sucker anywhere you need to tidy up. With ultra-powerful suction, rid cars, desks, bookshelves of dirt, dust, and other unwanted mess. The Starument portable hand vacuum cleaner easily glides over surfaces to pick up any particles in hard-to-reach places without a chord slowing you down. Lightweight and easy to charge, this portable vacuum will have you back to your days of cleaning all year round.
I respect the “I’m extra” vibes of the fun and funcitonal AGS Wireless Laser Projection Bluetooth Virtual Keyboard. Connect right to your iPhone, iPad, smartphone, laptop, or tablet quickly via Bluetooth. The QWERTY keyboard layout is a funky way to get all your writing down anywhere. A rechargeable lithium-ion battery is included.
If you’re back to having lavish dinner parties, you can’t host your next one without Vin Fresco’s Electric Wine Opener. Honestly, we all enjoyed a bottle or two while in lockdown, and opening bottles is tough. But no longer do you have to struggle to get your adult grape juice. With just one charge, easily uncork up to 30 bottles. Complete with foil cutter and a charging base, pick the color that blends in with your kitchen to keep it all on-trend. Being cordless means you can take it on the road for your next picnic or camping trip. Small and sleek, it fits perfectly inside a basket or backpack. While this is an excellent gift to get a new apartment or home dweller, bringing a bottle of wine is a nice touch too.
