TikTok Beauty Products: Ulike Dominates Hair Removal Market!

The pursuit of beauty is universal, and beauty and personal care products have always been highly sought-after categories on TikTok Shop worldwide. While cosmetics and skincare products are commonly associated with popular categories, the North American market, especially in foreign countries, has a high demand for "full-body hair removal care" due to dense body hair among locals. This need becomes even more prominent as spring arrives, and people begin to expose more skin, making hair removal a pressing beauty concern.


The Growing Demand for Hair Removal Products on TikTok Shop

On TikTok, the hashtag #hairremoval has garnered over 200,000 posts, where users actively share their favorite products and hair removal processes. Strong before-and-after comparisons in these posts fuel the desire to purchase among many.

Recently, Shoplus -'Products Search' section revealed that the top domestic hair removal device brand, Ulike, has showcased impressive performance in the past 30 days after joining TikTok Shop's US station. As of February 23, the 30-day sales volume for Ulike's product has reached nearly 4000 units, with an estimated GMV of $925,100, and sales are still on the rise.

"In the small shop, 2 best-selling items are sold at an average price of $229, mainly consisting of 2 star models from Ulike."

For promotion, the small store primarily relies on mainstream short video influencers to sell goods, with the sales of the top three short videos exceeding $300,000.

The most successful influencer promotion in the United States is a one-minute video posted by @savagemomlife. She openly expresses her love for the Ulike product, and the video, viewed over two million times, resulted in sales of $88,900.

Under her video, people in the comments section expressed their desire to have the same product and asked about its effectiveness.



In addition to influencer marketing, Ulike actively establishes its own brand account for product promotion, bringing the brand closer to customers. The account @ulikeofficial has been regularly updated in the past 30 days, mainly posting product introductions and recommendation videos. It now has over 70 million followers with more than 70,000 likes.

Before joining TikTok Shop in the US, Ulike had already started its overseas expansion, launching on well-known e-commerce platforms such as Amazon, setting up independent websites, and expanding influencer marketing and brand promotion on TikTok, YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, Reddit, and other platforms.
