We’re all aware by now that TikTok truly is the hub of all things hacks and trends, particularly when it comes to beauty.
However, when it comes to said hack or trend, it begs the question: do they actually work?
Well, for one such beauty trend that’s been doing the rounds over the last year or so, it’s safe to say the answer is a firm yes. The reason? TikTok user Isabelle.Lux.
In a video which the New York-based content creator recently posted, Isabelle detailed a TikTok beauty trend, known as ‘slugging’, which she has been doing for over 15 years. But it was when she revealed her age to viewers, they were left speechless.

In her video titled ‘Secret Beauty Techniques’ Isabelle details her top tips for looking younger. She detailed her beauty routine where she uses the ‘slugging’ method – a K-Beauty skincare trend – that involves slathering the skin in petroleum before bed which locks in moisture and seals the skin.
Isabelle says she has been using this technique for over 15 years and is now seeing the benefits, however, she chooses not to use Vaseline and instead uses Egyptian Magic cream which is widely available on Amazon.
It’s no surprise that people are intrigued by what her skincare secrets are and Isabelle willingly shared her top 3 in a recent TikTok video and often uses her account to provide anti-ageing or skincare advice.

Users flooded the comments section of the video saying they didn’t believe she was actually 30 and that she actually “looked like a teenager”.
One person said: “I still don’t think you’re 30!”
“Lol 15 years? You are 15!” wrote another.
“First of all I legit thought you were a teenager,” another added. “Second of all, I adore your tinsel hair!”
Isabelle went on to share some other beauty tips in the same video, stating that when it comes to the eyes, lightly tapping in products around the eye area is important as this is the most delicate area of the face.
The skin here is prone to damage so using the ring finger to tap in the product applies the right amount of pressure for the skin to absorb products. Tapping the under-eye area also increases blood flow which reduces dark circles and any puffiness around the cheekbones.
Her final secret is sleeping with a silk eye mask every night as the fabric is soft on the skin and helps retain moisture in the skin to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
