Pretty packaging, cute branding, and celebrity/influencer endorsements have been the driving factors behind so many beauty products going viral. Sometimes these products are great, and other times the beauty company simply has a big marketing budget. There’s been a new trend on TikTok talking about the “unsexy” products that people swear by. These products work, regardless of packaging and marketing, and they target real problems people have. Today, we’re sharing some of the “unsexy” products we swear by for redheads:
