Sometimes, routine — and life in general — can get pretty, well, boring. And when you've already changed your hair color 10 times, moved to three different cities, and swiped through every single Tinder match in a 5-mile radius, it might be time to try and spice your life up in a different way — but more specifically, with a bunch of freaky but functional products on Amazon.
I don't know about you, but I sure get tired of order quinoa every month. Quinoa is boring. But you know what isn't boring? An oven mitt shaped like a cow that's bound to give you nightmares — or even a few sticks of lip balm that are flavored to taste like dill pickles. And if you're really struggling for excitement in your life, no one is stopping you from buying blobfish slippers. Yep, you read that right.
The best part? Most of these products won't break the bank, so you won't have to feel guilty shelling out for a rejuvenating face cream loaded with real black snail mucus. So get freaky, get wild, but mostly just dive into a bunch of Amazon products that are weird as hell — even if it's just for the sake of looking at something out of the ordinary.
1. These Fun And Freaky Slippers
Are blobfish fun? Yes! And with these fun AF slippers, you can walk around with these freaky little fish right on your feet. These slippers are made from plush fleece and polyester that keep your feet warm even in the coldest winters, and one size is designed to be able to fit all. The bottoms have non-stick grips that help keep you from slipping when you walk, and one Amazon reviewer even raved that they are "very comfortable."
2. A Toilet Mug Made From High-Quality Ceramic
Able to hold up to 12 ounces of coffee, tea, or any other liquid, the BigMouth Inc toilet mug is made from high-quality ceramic and works great as a gag gift for people of all ages. It's recommended that you wash this mug by hand, and it can also work as a fun way to leave out candies and mints for guests — or as a single-serve ice cream dish.
3. The Desk Toys That Help Relieve Stress And Anxiety
Not only is it great for fidgeting, but the G-WACK stress relief desk toy is also a fun way to relieve stress whenever work gets the best of you. You can make all sorts of creative shapes using the 221 magnetic silver balls that come with each order, and the magnetic base ensures that the balls don't go spilling everywhere.
4. A Pair Of Glasses That Let You Embrace Your Inner Couch Potato
Perfect for anyone who is just plain lazy and can't be bothered to sit up, the Vinmax bed prism spectacles allow you to lay completely flat yet still watch television, read books — basically anything you'd have to sit up to do.

5. The Creepy Face Masks That Leave Your Skin As Smooth As An Eggshell
I've actually tried the Skin1004 zombie face mask before, and I can confirm that in only 15 minutes it tightens pores, hydrates your skin, exfoliates, and even brightens your complexion with a refreshing glow. Made with albumin extracted from egg whites, this mask sinks deep into your skin to deliver moisturizing aloe vera, and it'll even help balance your skin's pH level. What's freaky about it? It's a zombie mask, of course, so it makes your face look like you're in The Walking Dead as it dries.
6. A Unisex Ski Mask Shaped Like An Octopus
The VBIGER unisex octopus hat works great as a stylish ski mask as you ride down the slopes — or as just a way to keep your face warm when it's extra-chilly out. This hat is windproof, but the full beard helps ensure that your neck and chin stay warm. One Amazon reviewer even raved that "this mask is maddeningly well-made and the picture is accurate!"
7. The Desktop Cell Phone Holder Made From Cement
The Tech Tools desktop cell phone holder is made from a blend of cement and plastic, making it exceptionally durable.

9. The Cleansing Tool That Gets Rid Of Stubborn Blackheads
When you can't seem to get rid of stubborn blackheads on your own, try the COOFO blackhead remover vacuum. This handy tool lets you pick between four increasing levels of suction-power that pull out even the most ingrained blackheads, and is most effective when used in conjunction with a cleanser. Reviewers suggest starting on the lowest suction and steaming your face first to open the pores, and you'll be "impressed by the amount of sebum" it removes.
10. A Cream That Uses Black Snail Mucus To Brighten Your Complexion
You read that correctly — because black snail mucus is a natural moisturizer, a great way to soothe irritated skin, and known to heal acne scars, the MIZON snail repair cream is absolutely loaded with it. This cream also goes the extra mile by adding in 27 plant extracts and vitamins to help nourish your skin, and it's even great for tightening pores and brightening your complexion.
11. The Shower Caddy That Can Handle Bottles Of All Shapes And Sizes
It doesn't matter how wide, clunky, or oddly-shaped your bottles are, the Formverket octopus shower caddy will still hold them easily.

Wear the booties while you relax at home for a bit, and then wait a few days: Your skin will start peeling off in sheets, revealing the soft skin underneath. Made with natural ingredients like aloe vera and papaya extract, this mask is safe for all skin types (including anyone who's a bit sensitive), and the light lavender scent was described by one Amazon reviewer as "fabulous!"
14. A Gadget That Combines 12 Tools Into One
Made with stainless steel that won't rust over time, the Grand Way multi-tool combines 12 tools into one: a pair of spring loaded pliers, wire stripper, folding blade knife, serrated knife, bottle opener, file, screwdrivers, chisel-tooth blade, scoring blade, and more. Each order also comes with a free sheath to keep it safe from damage, and it makes a great addition to any emergency kit.

Designed so that one size will fit everybody, the PediDocTM bunion corrector utilizes the Pilates method to help correct any crooked or misaligned toes that are causing you pain. It's incredibly simple to use: stick your toes through the loops, and pull. As an added bonus, you can even add this gadget to your yoga routine as a way to exercise your toes and hip flexor.
19. The Tool That Lets You Humanely Trap And Release Insects
Feel guilty killing bugs, but don't want them creeping around in your home? Try using the Bert humane pest control tool.

Made from food-safe silicone that's heat-resistant up to 230 degrees Celsius (who doesn't love drinking a cup of boiling water?), the Coolrunner leaf tea infuser lets you brew loose leaves of tea without the risk of them leaking into your drink. These infusers work with both single cups and teapots, and the skull design is fun as well as quirky.
23. The Smartphone Holder That You Can Wrap Around Objects

Use it on your hands, back, feet, stomach — basically, you can use the Lyapko acupressure massager all over your body to help promote healthy blood circulation, and it even helps repair muscles while providing relief to them. While it may look painful, many Amazon reviewers noted how they experienced zero pain while using the roller, and one even raved that it "works great for fibromyalgia and myofascia issues!"

28. An Eye Mask That Helps Reduce Swelling
If you keep it in your refrigerator, you can use the FOMI facial eye mask to help cool down after a hot day, or even to reduce any swelling or inflammation in your face. This mask is dual-sided: One side features a plush fabric back, and the other side is made of the cooling gel that will get rid of headaches. The adjustable fastener lets you select a more customized and comfortable fit, too.
29. The Lip BalmThat Tastes Like Real Dill Pickles
