So Many People Are Obsessed With These Weird Beauty Products That Work Incredibly Well

We only recommend products we love and that we think you will, too. We may receive a portion of sales from products purchased from this article, which was written by our Commerce team.

You may think beauty products have to be just one thing or strictly practical, but this list is packed with weird things that will easily have a place in your routine. Though they may seem totally and completely unusual, these weird beauty products with unique packaging, intriguing ingredients, and special features work so well, people are totally and completely obsessed.

You know those 24K gold eye masks? You might think those sparkly spa moment masks can’t be useful, and they definitely can’t be good for sensitive skin. As it turns out, those masks are sensitive-skin friendly (even with the glitter), and they actually de-puff.

After your sparkly eye mask, this list has a stainless steel eyelash curler that’s way more long-lasting than others out there. The only thing “weird” about this budget-friendly set is that you get replacement pads. So, you can keep the curler you’re used to even after you’ve used it a ton.

Another product that has an unordinary twist but works so well is the jade eye mask on this list. It lets you wear real jade stones (for the cooling and anti-migraine benefits) without hurting your eyes. That’s because it has a unique and breathable beaded design that makes it way lighter.

So, if calming oat ingredients in a facial serum or a hair dye that doesn’t cause damage is “weird” — we’re all about to be obsessed with these weird beauty products.
