24 Bizarre Beauty Products That You’ll Actually Use Every Day

There’s no shortage of gimmicky beauty products up for grabs on the internet, and while they’re fun to try for the sake of curiosity — or the Instagram pics — there’s no denying that only good results will keep you coming back for more. Luckily, there’s an abundance of bizarre beauty products that you’ll actually use every day because they work really well.

In this case, bizarre can be defined as whimsical packaging, a beauty tool that looks like it came from another planet, or an ingredient you’ve never heard of before (horse oil, anyone?). While these characteristics may seem unconventional, the weirdest beauty products deliver perfectly manicured brows, voluminous hair, and skin that’s as smooth as silk — all results worth adding an unusual product or two to your morning or night routine.

While you could say K-beauty is responsible for the rise of unique ingredients, like a hydrating sleeping mask made with salmon eggs, once you become privy to all the goods on this list you’ll quickly learn that this phenomenon has been around longer than you’ve been talking about it. But, now that you know about it, it’s definitely time to get a little weirder with your daily beauty routine.

1. An Icy Roller That Alleviates Puffiness

ESARORA Ice Roller, $12, Amazon

This facial roller is basically a facial massage you can give yourself without going to aesthetician school. For best results, store the head in the freezer (or place it there 10 to 15 minutes before use) and the cold rollers will help reduce puffiness and wake up your skin.


2. A Face Massager That Helps With The Penetration Of Products

Swiss-Ultimate Labs Sonic Ionic Infusion Massager, $22, Amazon

This mini face massager uses negative-ion, micro-electric pulses which allow for deeper penetration of creams, serums, and essential oils — so you can ensure optimal results. Because the vibrations are boosting the circulation of blood in the face, you could experience a more radiant complexion in as little as two to three weeks with daily use. It comes with a complimentary bottle of hydrating serum to get you started on the right track. The wand pulses 140 times a second, and it's especially great for the sensitive under eye area.


3. A Hydrating Sleeping Pack Made With Salmon Eggs

Besolbo Royal Salmon Sleeping Renewal Pack, $25, Amazon

It looks like salmon eggs, and guess what folks? It’s actually comprised of the same nourishing omega oils that would ordinarily feed your skin should you have eaten a plate of lox or roe-laden sushi. Simply slather on this sleeping pack (basically a mask you leave on overnight) and let the hydrating “eggs” pop and envelope your skin with moisture and nutrients so that you can experience a facial-worthy glow.


4. A Vibrating Shampoo Brush For An Ultra-Clean Scalp

MARNUR Scalp Massager Shampoo Brush, $17, Amazon

Use this waterproof vibrating shampoo brush in the shower to get a deeper clean. The gentle massage helps loosen dead skin cells and product from your scalp, which can help with conditions like seborrhoeic dermatitis. It's great for anyone who uses lots of styling products and has trouble thoroughly removing them without using a ton of shampoo.


5. An Awesome Stamp For No-Fail Brows

Kiss i-Envy Brow Stamp Kit, $9, Amazon

Filling in your brows can be a real challenge, which is why this brow stamp can be a real timesaver. Simply swipe on a small amount of powder (available in a variety of hues) onto the stamp applicator and gently press into place. One reviewer writes: "After 35 years of drawing my brows on from over plucking this a miracle product. I just love it and will order it again. I'm amazed that it takes me two minutes to put my brows on." Some reviewers even prefer to use just the stamp and the powder of their choice for a perfectly customizable look.


6. A Unique Mascara That Encapsulates Your Lashes In Tiny Tubes

blinc Mascara, $26, Amazon

This unique mascara forms little tubes around every one of your eyelashes that won't budge. It's waterproof, lasts through sweaty workout sessions, and won't dry out and flake off like a lot of waterproof formulas. When you're ready to take off your mascara, makeup remover will essentially break the tubes, allowing them to slide off your lashes without tugging or rubbing.


7. A Cream Deodorant That Can Last Up To Seven Days

Lavilin Underarm Deodorant Cream, $14-$27, Amazon

This popular cream deodorant claims to last for up to seven days without reapplication. While it may sound too good to be true, over a thousand reviewers have sang its praises on Amazon. It's made mostly of herbs and doesn't contain any aluminum or harsh chemicals, and it comes in two large tub sizes, so it'll last you ages. "I taught martial arts for over 30 years," writes one reviewer. "It was the only thing I used. Fantastic stuff. I mean, sometimes I forgot and it ended up being a week and a half (or more), between applications, and no problems."


8. These Effective Makeup Brushes That Look Like They Should Be Brushing Your Teeth

Yoseng Makeup Brushes, $14 (10 Pieces), Amazon

While the shape may take a bit of getting used to, these flat makeup brushes are compatible with every type of wet or dry product, so they’re the ultimate go-to applicator if you’re seeking a flawless application. The dense bristles also blend product more effectively without sopping it up, so you end up using a lot less foundation than you're used to. These brushes are also cruelty-free and hypoallergenic, and can easily be cleaned.


9. A Sulfate-Free Shampoo Bar That Also Hydrates Your Body

J.R. Liggett Bar Old-Fashioned Bar Shampoo, $7, Amazon

If you prefer fewer steps and products in your daily routine, this old-fashioned jojoba oil and peppermint oil soap bar produces a bountiful lather that thoroughly cleans both hair and body without the help of sulfites. While there’s no harm in using a hair conditioner or body lotion afterwards, rest assured that your hair skin won’t be stripped of moisture after use. It's also made with coconut and castor oil to keep your scalp and body moisturized, and reviewers love that it helps out with dandruff flakes, too.


10. This Balm Is Essentially An Overnight Face Mask For Your Lips

Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask, $20, Amazon

This cult-favorite K-beauty lip mask smells absolutely delicious, and has a thick consistency that resembles something between jelly and a cloud. It contains hyaluronic acid and Vitamin C, resulting in lips that are smooth and flake-free. It comes with a little spoolie, too, so you don't have to worry about transferring bacteria from your hands. Apply before bed and wake up to the softest, most kissable lips of your life.


11. A Broccoli Essence Toner That Hydrates

Ladykin Elmaju Broccoli Essence Toner, $12, Amazon

Instead of purified water, this essence toner is packed with broccoli that intensely hydrates due to a 90 percent concentration level of the cruciferous veg. In addition, vitamins A, C, and D promote a healthy, glowing complexion, and it's got some blueberry and orange extract in there as well. It'll clean and brighten your skin but, no, it doesn't count as a serving of veggies.


12. A Tint That's Like A Temporary Tattoo For Your Lips

Berrisom Oops My Lip Tint Tattoo, $8, Amazon

This fun lip tint adjusts to your natural coloring, so it's perfect if you're trying to achieve a minimalist look. Leave it on for five minutes and peel off to reveal stained lips that look like they've just been bitten. It works best if you exfoliate your lips with a scrub, first, and since it can be a tad drying, it's best to follow up with a balm. It's also nice and buildable, so swipe your favorite lipgloss over it if you're looking for a little more drama.


13. A Brow Shaper That Works Like A Protractor

Billion Dollar Brows Eyebrow Buddy Contour Kit, $18, Amazon

Don't mistake this product for an eyebrow stencil, because it's not. What it actually is is an eyebrow measuring tool that helps to create perfectly symmetrical brows. It also comes with a white liner, to use as both a stencil and highlighter. "I had the most uneven brows and getting my brows to look even similar was nearly impossible ... until I found this thing," writes one reviewer. "It truly changed my life!"


14. A Nail Strengthening Cream That’s Also Used On Horse Hooves

Gena Healthy Hoof Cream, $7, Amazon

While this formula was originally used by horse trainers to strengthen the hooves of their prized rides, as it turns out, it also works wonders on human nails, too. The concentrated protein treatment — and additional ingredients like lavender and castor seed oil — also repairs ragged cuticles, so you’re going to want to stock up on this stuff for winter. One reviewer writes, "The difference in my nails and cuticles is amazing."


15. A Hair Straightener In The Form Of A Convenient Brush

AsaVea Hair Straightening Brush, $38, Amazon

While there’s no denying that a flat iron is a fantastic hair tool, sometimes you just want to save a few steps — and that’s where this straightening device comes in. It combs through your hair like a traditional brush, so it straightens and detangles at the same time. It's also designed with a patented “anti-scald technology” to keep your scalp from burning, it heats up in 90 seconds, and reviewers say it works on all hair types.


16. Crystal-Clear Jelly Lipsticks That Turn Lips A Natural Pink

Weixinbuy Secret Jelly Lipstick, $3, Amazon

The colors of these clear, jelly-like lippies only reveal the flavor (orange, peach, grape, strawberry), but the final result of these hydrating, smooth lipsticks will be a natural shade of pink. It's a great choice for people who like a subtle, glossy look to lips, and reviewers say these go on "like butter."


17. A Pencil That's Basically A Blueprint for Your Eyebrow Powder

BeautyBoss Eyebrow Stenciling Pencil, $13, Amazon

Drawing in your eyebrows freestyle can be tricky — especially if you have a heavy hand. Used with or without a stencil, this genius pencil provides an invisible, tacky base so that pigmented powders adhere where they should. It lets you map out where you want the powder or pencil to go so you can create the shape you want (and make easily-fixed mistakes, too). And since it's white, you can use it to brighten up your waterline as well.


18. The Adorable Strawberry Curlers That Are Comfortable To Sleep On

Strawberry Sponge Hair Curlers, $2, Amazon

These adorable strawberry rollers actually deliver amazing body and are comfortable enough to sleep on, so you don’t have to deal with styling your hair in the morning. The company suggests waiting until your hair is about 80 to 90 percent dry after washing before rolling, then hit the hay and wake up looking like you just left the salon. You can also spritz hair with water, roll them in, and blow dry your hair for 15-20 minutes for a second-day hair reboot.


19. The Bunny Gloss You'll Actually Want To Use All The Time

TONYMOLY 01 Petit Bunny Gloss Bar, $8, Amazon

Sure, it's cute — but this lip gloss bar doesn't deserve to just sit on your nightstand. Like the gloss of your childhood, it smells fruity and adds a little tint and a little gloss, but it's got an adult upgrade with a hearty dose of vitamin E that hydrates dry lips. It can also be worn over regular lip colors for a bit of shine to a matte lip.


20. A Device That Turns Your Cleanser Into A Marshmallow-Like Texture

NOONI Marshmallow Whip Maker, $6, Amazon

Perhaps the best way to coerce you into the cleansing process is this device that literally turns any facial cleanser into a fluffy cloud of foam. But it's not all fun and games — the machine actually makes any cleanser pH balanced! Also, you'll waste less product because of how little you need to put into the whip maker to produce the foam, and one reviewer writes: "This may seem like an unnecessary additional step, but it seriously only takes seconds to do and actually cuts the time of cleansing by half for myself personally."


21. A Watermelon Ice Gel That Soothes And Relieves Redness

Ladykin Fresh Watermelon Icing Gel Bar, $10, Amazon

Whether you have a sensitized complexion or you’ve subjected yourself to too much time in the sun, this 90% watermelon extract gel-bar soothes on contact. It'll immediately cool skin on the face or body that has UV damage, but because it creates a firmer, silky, more radiant look, it's also beneficial for dry or dull skin as well.


22. This Hydrating Sheep Placenta Moisturizer From Australia

ReBirth Placenta Rose & Vit E Moisturizing Cream, $77, Amazon

While the thought of slathering sheep placenta on your body may sound a bit bizarre, the results from this hydrating body moisturizer speak from themselves. The placenta is mixed with a water and oil base to create a rich, smooth, non-greasy, and highly absorbent cream. In addition, Vitamin E — a natural antioxidant — plays a vital role in stimulating new cell production. It's produced by Australia's leading placenta experts (yes, that's a thing) and it flies off the shelves down under.


23. A Stick Made From Iceland Mineral Water That Refreshes Tired Eyes

The SAEM Iceland Hydrating Eye Stick, $10, Amazon

Whether you spent too much time in front of the computer or can’t get enough shuteye, this stick works on contact to refresh peepers due to a high concentration of Iceland mineral water. Don’t let the cute bear deter you from the instantaneous de-puffing results, because reviewers are absolutely loving how cooling it is, how thick it applies, and how easily it's absorbed into the skin.


24. A Horse Oil Cream That Imparts Immediate Moisture

Guerisson 9 Complex Cream Korean Beauty, $14, Amazon

This vitamin E-rich cream (thank you, horse oil) replenishes parched skin on contact. Void of steroids and preservatives, rest assured you’ll have hydrated and smooth no matter what type of skin you have (including sensitive skin). One reviewer writes: "I love it! This stuff is SO SO DENSE! And for really (ultra) dry skin folks like me, it's very useful to wear to bed on top of a clean/washed face to hydrate for an extended period of time."
