Bobbie’s Bests: Viral Beauty Favorites – April 2022
This kit features some of the top products from Glow Recipe, a beloved TikTok brand. In collaboration with popular TikToker beauty Mikayla Nogueira, the brand curated a kit with three of their products that deliver a dewy complexion. It includes Plum Plump Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizer, Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Dew Drops (which have sold 17 times worldwide, according to the brand), and Avocado Ceramide Redness Relief Serum.
Glow Recipe’s Dew Drops got a lot of love on TikTok for brightening skin and giving users a dewy complexion. According to the brand, skin-friendly ingredients such as niacinamide and hyaluronic acid stand out in the formula and help keep skin hydrated.
The brand’s sleeping mask is designed to look like a lightweight gel, but it’s actually a multitasking serum. Like Dew Drops, Niacinamide, Watermelon, and Hyaluronic Acid are also present in the formula.
If you want a taste of the entire Glow Recipe catalog, this kit includes five of the brand’s best-selling formulas. Inside are the Avocado Melting Retinol Eye Sleep Mask, Watermelon Glow PHA+ BHA Anti-Pure Toner, Plum Plump Hyaluronic Acid Serum, Avocado Juice Oil-Free Moisturizer, Pink Watermelon and Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Dewdrops.
This volumizing mascara has amassed over 500 million views (and counting) on TikTok and has even sold out four times over on Ulta’s website, according to the brand. At just $9, it’s an affordable option that not only helps you give voluminous lashes, but longer lashes too.
This hair dryer brush has quickly become a favorite of Shop TODAY readers and editors, among thousands of others. It’s an easy way to get a salon-worthy blowout at home (and depending on your hair, probably in half the time). This 2.0 version is slightly smaller than the original and now allows users to achieve soft waves and flips and can also be used on shorter hairstyles. The removable head, longer motor life and new medium heat setting are also some new benefits.
This tried-and-true root spray is a classic for a reason. Thomas says it’s so popular it’s spawned counterfeits. Due to increased demand, Thomas also says the touch-up spray is now at one of its lowest prices yet – just $12.

Opopop popcorn discovery kit
Anyone who likes to add flavor to their popcorn knows that coating every grain is impossible. That’s what sets Opopop apart, as the brand says it individually wraps each core in flavors like Fancy Butter, Vanilla Cake Pop, Maui Heat and more. All you have to do is pour the beans into the included popper and put them in the microwave.
Wunderkeks Red Carpet Brownies
Editor’s Note: This choice is now exhausted.
The Austin-based Wunderkeks have prepared some of their sweet treats for the red carpet — their limited-edition Red Carpet brownies are covered in gold foil and packaged in a chic pink box with pom poms. Wunderkeks doesn’t use any premixes or preservatives, which is why the brand claims its cookies are just like the ones her grandmother used to make.
Removing your jewelry to wash your hands is no longer necessary with this wash. It’s the first hand soap designed to clean both your hands and your jewelry, according to the brand. The plant-based formula removes dirt, lotion and more, leaving you with soft, hydrated skin and shiny jewelry.
Hotsy Totsy Haus Bath Bombs
Hotsy Totsy Haus is a deaf women owned brand based in the USA. These vegan bath bombs are handcrafted by CEO Christi Leonardi, who uses original recipes to create bath bombs, scrubs and more.
Another loot bag find is this adorable microwaveable plush that toddlers can snuggle up with. While soft toys are cuddly and cute, the brand also offers items for adults, such as microwaveable slippers.
If you’re looking for a fun and unique gift, this is it. The Lords and Ladies of Glencoe are a community of landowners in Scotland who strive to support land conservation efforts, one plot at a time. You can purchase a memorial plot of land to gift or pass on to future generations and be addressed by “Laird, Lord or Lady”, by other members of the community.
