37 Freaky Things On Amazon That Keep Selling Out
Let's be real: There's some weird stuff out there on the Internet. And if you're anything like me, once you stumble across some of the freakiest things on Amazon, it's impossible to look away.
I consider myself a pretty practical shopper and, luckily, some of the weirdest stuff out there is also ridiculously useful, too. Take this egg white and yolk separator that looks like a tiny goldfish. It seems silly at first glance, but when you read the cult-like love for this thing, you can see why it's such a hit: It makes a complicated task easy. Just suck up the yolks in the fish's mouth and spit them out in a separate bowl. It also doesn't hurt that it's fun.
The strangest finds also usually combine ingredients or functions you wouldn't ever expect to go together. Like who would have thought to throw some seaweed in a rich night cream? Or to put bee venom in a face mask? Or to design a mask that's made for your butt cheeks instead of your face cheeks? Even better, these strange combinations work so well that Amazon can't even keep them in stock for long.
If you're ready to branch out and try something weirdly awesome, here's a round-up of some of the most interesting products out there, butt mask included.
1. A Silicone Fish That Separates Your Eggs
Not only is this silicone egg separator adorable, but it's also makes a difficult task too easy. First, crack your eggs into a bowl. Then, grab the egg separator, touch the fish's lips to the yolk, and squeeze. It literally swallows up the yolk right into its mouth from the bowl. Just squeeze again to drop it into a separate bowl and you're done. And if fish aren't your thing, you can go with the equally cute frog or pig options.
2. A Tiny Comb That Can Also Trim Your Hair
This tiny comb untangles stubborn knots while also trimming your hair. One side of the comb features a series of slim razor blades that add texture to fine hair, while the other side features wider blades for thicker, coarser hair. Just pull the comb through in short strokes to trim and texturize your hair just as quickly as it takes to give it a quick comb through. Amazon reviewers rave that this is fantastic for trimming split ends, as well.
3. A Travel Pillow That Has Holes For Your Arms
This travel pillow looks a little different than those standard U-shaped options, but that's a good thing. It comes in a small, portable bag that you can easily throw in your purse or carry-on. Just unpack it, blow it up with a few breaths, and use it to prop your head up while you watch movies or slip your arms through the center while you snooze. The options are pretty much endless with this pillow, and when you're done, just deflate and slip it back in its bag.
4. A Dish That Makes Your Soap Last Longer
No more dealing with soggy soap with these unique waterfall dishes. These attach to the corner of just about any sink or tub, and prop up your soap at an angle.

6. Charcoal Pads That Neutralizes Gas Odor
If your stomach's rumbling, slip one of these charcoal pads into your underwear to keep the gas under wraps.

Plus, they come in a pack of five disposable pads so you always have a back up if you're backed up.
