TikTok has been responsible for a lot of trends over the past 12 months or so but one thing we love about the video-sharing platform is that not only has it introduced us to new products and brands that we might have previously overlooked but also allows us to see ‘normal’ people with ‘normal’ skin and hair – rather than supermodels that is – putting them to the test.
There was one particular video that caught our eye this week, however, and it is safe to say our jaws had dropped by the time we had reached the end of the video.
The video in question was posted by Trini (@trinidad1967) one week ago and has since racked up over 24 million video views, 4.3 million likes and 113,000 comments. Blimey.
In the video, 54-year-old Trini shares her favourite product for improving the appearance of her under eye bags which she reveals worsened after weight loss surgery.
Trini dabs the product under her right eye – leaving her left so that we can draw a comparison – and within seconds you can spot a noticeable difference between the two. Just like magic, her under eye bags seemingly disappear all together within three minutes.
Describing the feeling, Trini says she can feel it ‘tightening right now’ and that it ‘stays like this all day’. Not a permanent solution by any means but an incredible result in less than 3 minutes no less.
The ‘amazing’ product that Trini uses and swears by in the TikTok video is Peter Thomas Roth Instant FirmX Temporary Eye Tightener. Since Trini’s video went viral on TikTok, the product has sold out across the US but we have found it available to pre-order in the UK from Cosmeterie.
While the product isn’t due to be dispatched until 8 October, we think it’s well worth the wait if we experience the same results as Trini!
