9 Weird Face Masks That Women Swear By

Beauty and skin care have their fair share of trends. Whether it's unicorn-themed makeup or skin care lovers' obsession with sheet masks, trendy products can be found everywhere in beauty, but not all of them are just for show. Case in point: these nine weird face masks that women swear by show that weird ingredients and innovative mask types may just be the latest skin care craze. Whether it's a magnetic mask, a mask full of mushrooms — yes mushroom — or a K-beauty sheet mask loaded with bee venom, there are some odd masks that women swear by.

Odd cosmetics isn't really a new story, though. In fact, it seems like since the rise of social media, products and techniques have been getting stranger by the second. Whether it's beauty vloggers applying their makeup with Beautyblenders in condoms as a gag or a spoon being used to perfect eyeliner, hacks and strange methods are everywhere when it comes to makeup. Now, those trends are translating to skin care, but unlike the joking nature of the beauty videos, these weird skin care items actually serve a purpose that is good for your skin.

If you want to experiment with the weirdest masks out there, these picks have some of the best reviews, so you can't go wrong. Happy masking!

8. Miss Spa Bee Venom Plumping Mask


Miss Spa Bee Venom Plumping Mask, $8, Ulta

Bee venom is actually a super popular ingredient, but that doesn't make it sound less odd. With 4.8 stars, though, I'll happy try it.

9. SNP Cat Wrinkle Face Art Mask Sheet


SNP Cat Wrinkle Face Art Mask Sheet, $5, Ulta

This mask may not host odd ingredient, but I can attest to the fact that the cat printed on the mask is definitely odd as it's mouth is positioned over the user's own.
