21 Nasty But Necessary Items Most Added To Amazon Wish Lists

If you spend any time at all shopping on the internet, you know it's absolutely loaded with nasty but necessary products. This is something that I know quite well. In the past week, I've bought a bra that sticks to my boobs, an inhaler filled with Himalayan sea salt, and a toilet spray to help my guests feel a little more comfortable about "going" in my home. Believe it or not, if you're looking for some nasty shopping inspiration, the bizarre but genius products on Amazon wish lists are a good place to start.

Don't get me wrong — tons of people fill their wish lists with the most basic items ever. Amazon's most wished for pages have their fair share of blenders, headphones, toilet paper, and Cards Against Humanity packs (which have been at the top of the Toys category for years now).

Every once in a while, though, you'll stumble upon something that's so weird, gross, and intriguing, you're not sure your life will continue until you've added it to your cart. I get that. I've been there, and that's why I sorted through and found the nastiest yet most necessary items that Amazon users can't wait to get their hands on.

If your keyboard is filled with crumbs, dust, hair, or lint, the ColorCoral cleaning gel can help.

Each mask has cut-outs for your face, and has other calming and anti-inflammatory ingredients like rosemary, licorice root, and chamomile flower.


8. This Rechargeable Facial Vacuum That Sucks Out Blackheads

There is something strangely satisfying about extracting a blackhead, which might be part of the reason why people are loving this pore vacuum. It’s rechargeable, painless, and sucks all the gunk out of your pores.
