TikTok can make discovering new products you need in your life so much easier.

This is especially true for beauty lovers looking for new makeup and skin care products. While you’ll find lots of videos on popular products from brands you know, you’ll also stumble upon viral videos about products from lesser-known brands that should be on your radar.

One that’s going viral right now? User @mualesandro’s video highlighting how amazing the essence Brighten Up! Banana Powder is. The video has more than 810,000 likes and over 3,000 comments.
