18 Strange Hair & Skin Care Products That True Beauty Lovers Will Appreciate

Anyone who's ever watched a YouTube makeup tutorial has heard of Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade. Every single beauty Redditor reads about NARS Blush Orgasm in five-minute intervals. But what about the wacky beauty products with a cult following? These are the hair and skin care products that are a little bit more bizarre. More often than not, they're also a disconcerting color. Still, according to buyers and reviewers, they're definitely worth a try.

Personally, the weirder the product, the more excited I am about giving it a shot. Strange beauty products oftentimes means new and innovative ingredients, and with the recent arising consciousness about what exactly people are putting on their bodies, tired chemical-laden labels are getting swapped out for more natural ones. For someone like me, this is a godsend. As long as it's effective and healthy, I have no qualms about slathering my hair with a yogurt mask.

For this reason, I've done a little digging and found a few weird but amazing hair and skin care products. Maybe you haven't heard of them yet, and maybe they're not as popular as your Urban Decay Naked Palette, but according to buyers and beauty bloggers, these'll be a staple in everyone's beauty cabinet in no time.
