45 Bizarre Amazon Products That Are Actually Must-Haves For Hundreds Of Reviewers

I'm not going to lie, when I get assigned to write a piece on the bizarre Amazon products that are actually must-haves for hundreds of reviewers, I rub my hands together and cackle with pure glee. These are the stories that make my heart sing, because they're pure voyeurism — basically, they're almost as good as going to a dinner party and looking at the beauty products someone keeps in their bathroom. Not that I would ever do that.

Seriously, from this electric kettle that folds up and gets 4.5-stars from more than 500 reviewers to this light that goes in your toilet bowl and is motion-activated to brighten the night in your choice of 16 different shades while you go, these products are some of the most original you'll find on offer from the online behemoth. What I like to envision as I craft these columns for you is the inventors of these fabulous products and the brainstorming sessions that give birth to them. Consider: "I simply must be able to make my coffee pot fit into my briefcase. I know! I'll create one in everyone's favorite miracle material, silicone, and make it fold up like some kind of small appliance origami! Eureka!"

See what I mean? Literally hours of good, clean fun, even without the light show. The only downside? These products are seriously life-changing, too, and as noted above, they have the stars to prove it. So keep your credit card handy, and take a walk on the weird side.

Entertainment — 45 Bizarre Amazon Products That Are Actually Must-Haves For Hundreds Of Reviewers

1. This Is An Eyelash Curler, Not A Futuristic Torture Device

Japonesque Go Curl Eyelash Curler, $13, Amazon

Though it may look like some kind of conveniently pocket-sized medieval torture device, this eyelash curler has garnered rave reviews from nearly 900 Amazon shoppers who say the Go Curl is their go-to for luxe and lovely lashes. Its unique easel-back design makes it easy to operate, and the open cage design and silicone lash pad won't pinch your eyelid like its metal sisters — which, let's be honest, look like they belong at a gynecologist's office.


2. A Gadget That's Kitschy But Delivers Perfectly Peeled Boiled Eggs

Fox Run Egg Piercer, $6, Amazon

Nothing is more discouraging when you're making boiled eggs than mangling them as you peel — all because the shells won't come off neatly. This device is pretty darn cute, but it also serves a serious purpose: It puts an end to that struggle by using a stainless steel needle to pierce a small hole in the shell before boiling in order to let a small quantity of water flow between the shell and the membrane making it easier to separate after it's cooked.


3. This Shaving Accessory Means You Can Choose To Shave Without Contorting Your Body

Giraffe Bath & Body Razor Extension Handle, $30, Amazon

All I can think of when I see this razor adapter is how much I would have appreciated it when I was pregnant — but it's fantastic for anyone recovering from an injury or otherwise can't bend over to reach your extremities. This telescoping extension gives you the extra reach you need, plus it flexes as much as your arm would to give you a close shave. With two universal razor attachments, it's suitable for most men's and women's razors, adding 15 to 20 inches to the length of the handle.


4. The Blemish Patch That Pulls The Toxins Right Out Of Your Skin Overnight

Mighty Patch, $13 (Box of 36), Amazon

With absorption powers thanks to hydrocolloids, these patches actually pull out the pus and bacteria from whiteheads right out of your skin to visibly reduce the size of your blemishes and begin the healing process — all while you sleep. Designed to enable you to attack your acne without the use of harsh, drying chemicals, these patches use the highest-grade, vegan-friendly ingredients and also protect against picking and touching.


5. This Little Gremlin Will Keep Your Drains Clear As A Bell

Green Gobbler Quick Fix Drain Tool, $7 (5 Pack), Amazon

The resolute green face should give you the idea that this drain opener means business, but it's the jagged green teeth that do all the work. Once you work the extra-long, 22-inch tool deep into your drain and begin retracting it, the teeth bite into the hair and grime causing your clog and pull it right out. Get rid of the blockage simply by removing it from the tool and discarding it into your trash, then reuse the tool as needed — or discard the whole mess if so desired. No harmful chemicals needed!


6. This Is One Brush Not Meant For Your Hair...It's For Your Hands

Fuller Brush Hand And Nail Brush, $16, Amazon

If you are trying to do manicures at home more or always find stuff underneath them, you need to check out this hand and nail brush. One side of the brush is designed with short bristles for scrubbing your nails and cuticles to ensure that they always look their best, and the reverse has longer bristles to provide a thorough, exfoliating scrub for hands, elbows, and even heels. The handle makes this a cinch to use, too.


7. The Stand That Makes It Easy To Use Your Tablet Or Read A Book Hands-Free

Renegade Concepts Lap Pro, $25, Amazon

Who doesn't love a beanbag chair? This super comfortable one is designed to cradle your tablet — or a book, whichever you prefer — in luxurious comfort so that you can read or watch movies hands-free while sitting or lounging wherever you like. Crafted from soft yet durable microfiber, it's engineered with one-piece construction and features a device holder that doubles as a handle. It's compatible with all tablets and doubles as a carrying tote, too.


8. These Insoles Will Keep Your Feet Clean And Fresh

HappyStep Terry Insoles, $16 (2 Pairs), Amazon

Keep your feet clean and dry for running, jogging, or just everyday walking with these insoles. They're crafted from a combination of a terry top layer that absorbs sweat, and a latex bottom layer that controls odors thanks to a special treatment engineered to eliminate bacteria. Together, the layers provide cushioning to absorb shock and pad your steps with comfort, great if you work on your feet or suffer from plantar fasciitis or other painful foot conditions. To refresh, simply wash in cold water and air dry.


9. A Stylish Multi-Tool Comes From The Design Gurus

Kikkerland Triangle Multitool, $10, Amazon

"Where even the most utilitarian gadget becomes a delightful discovery" — that's Kikkerland's modus operandi, and you can see that philosophy reflected in this elegant triangular multi-tool. It incorporates nine functions — four socket wrenches, an angled flat head screwdriver, a box cutter, a box saw, a bottle opener, and a ruler — and can be used as a key ring or carried in your wallet for maximum convenience.


20. This Measuring Cup Is Also Great For Funneling Ingredients

Norpro 2 Cup Measuring Funnel Pitcher, $6, Amazon

If you're a fan of muffins, pancakes, or waffles, you're going to need this measuring cup. The difference in this tool is in its uniquely-shaped spout: It stretches out over to the side to form a funnel mouth that makes it ideal for filling cupcake pans, pouring the perfect pancake, and many other tasks that require precision and no drips. The side of the cup is marked in increments to 2 cups for your measuring convenience, too. Reviewers note it's great for soap making, so who knows what else you'll use it for!


21.This Vintage Throwback Is Still The Best Friend Your Fresh Produce Will Ever Have

Cuisinart Salad Spinner, $20, Amazon

The salad spinner is one of those bizarre retro throwbacks that people forget about — but this versatile kitchen accessory still gets lots of raves on Amazon. This spinner features an easy-to-turn knob and a non-skid base, and it's equally as impressive are the other functions it can discharge on top of rotating your radicchio: Use it to remove excess moisture from grated potatoes before making latkes or hash browns, defrost shrimp inside your spinner, strain moisture from zucchini, and drain pasta and even dry it before making pasta salad.


22. A Kit That Gives You Professional Whitening Results After Just One Treatment

Cali White Whitening Kit, $35, Amazon

Your smile is your calling card to the world, and if yours is less than pearly white, this kit can help: It provides clinically-proven results in less time than it takes to watch one episode of Queer Eye. The real difference with this set is the bright blue LED light, just like the one you'll find at your dentist's office, included right in the kit — and it has a built-in timer to guide you through the process. Also included are two peroxide gel syringes, a patented Universal Comfort Fit Tray, two custom mouthpiece trays, and a case.


23. This All-In-One Scrub Exfoliates, Soothes, Heals, And Deodorizes Your Skin

If you're asked which skin care product you'd choose to get stuck on a desert island with, pick this tea tree oil scrub: It's the ultimate utility player, ticking all the boxes you need from acne control to exfoliation, and it also removes makeup, moisturizes skin, and helps irritated skin. Suitable for use everywhere on your body from your face to your feet, this scrub will leave your skin clean, soft, and moisturized, and its lightly invigorating scent is a wonderful touch, too. It's all-natural, vegan, and cruelty-free.


24. This Glass Cleaning Sponge Is A More Eco-Friendly Alternative

Full Circle Crystal Clear Glass Cleaning Sponge, $9, Amazon

With a replaceable sponge head and a handle crafted from renewable, eco-friendly bamboo, this sponge is a BPA-free eco-friendly version of the popular sink accessory you use to clean your glassware and dishes. Its layered cellulose head cleans your stemware and tall glasses quickly and easily, then snaps off for quick replacement as needed so that you don't have to wastefully discard the entire brush. It stands on end to dry and in between uses, and is made without harmful coatings, dyes, plastics, and chemicals.


25. The Massage Tool That Will Get Your Feet On The Ball

The Oh Ball SnOh Ball, $33, Amazon

Are you working on your feet all the time? This is one snowball you won't want to dodge (get it?): the SnOh Ball is an icy massage ball that features custom handles to help you adjust its position and apply pressure to the frozen gel ball. This immediately helps to ice down your aches on a customized basis, but it's great for more than your feet, too: The SnOh Ball can be used all over your body and is perfect if you're recovering from an injury, suffering from fibromyalgia, looking to speed muscle recovery post-workout, or just in need of an ice-down after a hot and tiring day.


26. This Soap Uses Common Breakfast Ingredients To Exfoliate And Nourish Your Skin

27. A Spatula That Can Be Used From Either End

Orblue Flexible Dual-Sided Silicone Spatula, $10, Amazon

Crafted from a single seamless piece of silicone, this spatula features a wide blade on one end that's perfect for mixing, folding, and scraping batter as well as frosting cakes and baked goods — but it has a spoon on the other end that's great for stirring up whatever's on the stove.

29. This Is Like Those Fun Slap Armbands, Only Cooler: It Lights Up

Higo LED Slap Armband, $8, Amazon

Reminiscent of those awesome bracelets from the '90s, this slap armband goes the trend one better: It lights up to make you more visible while you're out for a late-night walk, jog, or bike ride. An LED is transmitted through the light-guiding tube to provide ultra-bright, weather-resistant 360-degree visibility. Great for motorcyclists, dog walkers, trick-or-treaters or concert-goers — everyone needs a couple of these fun and functional bands.


30. These Clips Are Small But Make A Big Impact On Cable Organization

EyeIslet Self-Adhesive Cable Clips, $8 (20 Pack), Amazon

Equipped with strong peel-and-stick adhesive, these cable clips are smaller than a quarter but go a long, long way to straightening up your desk. Dubbed "Best of class for small cabling" by one reviewer, they're the perfect size for USB cords, your smartphone chargers, earbud or headphone cords, and the like. They'll affix instantaneously to any smooth, clean surface without damage, and are easy to remove, too.


31. A Cleaning Kit That Will Freshen Up....Your Tongue

The Original TUNG Gel & Brush Starter Pack, $10, Amazon

So the brush in this set kind of looks like a tiny shower head, but it combines with the gel to scour your tongue and remove all the odor-causing bacteria that are the culprits behind that bad breath you're afraid of. From the inventors of the first tongue brush and gel system, the unique elements in this combo are the zinc formulation of the gel, which neutralizes the odor-causing gases in your mouth, and the innovative design of the brush, which was developed by dentists to prevent gagging.


32. These Containers Take Specialized Storage To A Whole New Level

Progressive International Keeper Set, $19, Amazon

A place for everything and everything in its place: If this is the rule you live by, these storage containers are for you. Crafted from high-quality, BPA-free plastic, these food savers are purpose-made for the food they resemble — the purple one is for your onions, the red one for tomatoes, and the green one for avocados. They're dishwasher-safe for easy cleaning, and the fact that they're reusable makes them environmentally-friendly.


33. These Silicone Scrubbers Wash Your Face And Massage It All At Once

Innerneed Silicone Face Cleanser/Massager, $10 (Set of 4), Amazon

I've come to think of silicone as the wonder material of the 21st century, and this little scrubber — crafted from the substance — is one of the more ingenious uses you'll find. First off, unlike your washcloth, it's not a veritable Welcome Wagon for bacteria, mold, and mildew, and when you're ready to clean it, you can throw it in the dishwasher, since it's heat resistant to 500 degrees. Secondly, it features soft, thick bristles to agitate off your makeup as well as environmental dirt and debris, as well as rows of massaging nubs to invigorate your face and increase blood flow. It's easy to hold, non-irritating, and hypoallergenic.


34. A Flashlight That Also Has A Magnetic Head To Pick Stuff Up

GEN Magnetic Flash Light, $10, Amazon

Let me clear something up right off the bat: This is not the scope they used to check down your throat at the doctor's office. Don't worry, though, this flashlight is way more useful — it has a flexible neck that telescopes out over 21 inches long, and the flashlight head is magnetized so that any small bits you've dropped, like screws, nails, paper clips, or your keys. The light itself, powered by three LED bulbs to illuminate whatever you're after, will hold up to 5 pounds, and it's pocket-sized for the ultimate in convenience.


35. These Gel Devices Are Like Yoga For Your Toes

Dr JK Original Toe Pal, $16 (2 Pairs), Amazon

Sometimes relief can come from the most unlikely sources, and despite their otherworldly appearance, these toe separators are cult-favorites on Amazon for their ability to ease chronic foot conditions like bunions and hammer toes. Crafted from soft medical-grade gel, the loops and separators position your toes for correct alignment and provide a valuable stretch that's incredibly relaxing after a hard day on your feet at work or running or walking. In addition to providing pain relief from sufferers of chronic foot conditions, they're great for athletes of any kind, including dancers, and are an excellent support for when you're doing an at-home pedicure.


36. This Looks Like A Scarf, But It's Actually A Neck Support Pillow

Kohbi Travel Pillow, $20, Amazon

A simple butterfly-shaped plastic insert makes all the difference on the inside of this travel pillow that looks like a cozy microfiber scarf from the outside. Though flexible, the insert provides support and keeps your neck in an ergonomic position while you sleep, cradling you in comfort. Plus, it folds up to 8 inches, and it's incredibly light, so it makes the perfect travel companion.


37. A Mask That Produces Results And Is Basically Like A Vacuum For Your Face

Aliceva Black Mask, $14, Amazon

I'm this close to listing knowledge about face masks among my accomplishments on my LinkedIn profile, and this mask is my go-to when I want one that really shows results. There's nothing better than peeling the charcoal-collagen blend off of your face and seeing what it's pulled out of your pores embedded in its underbelly. Alternately, enjoy the sensation of alarming dogs, small children, and impressionable neighbors alike while dolled up like the Swamp Thing mid-mask. This cleansing treatment detoxifies and purifies without stripping your skin of moisture, too.


38. These Food Wraps Are All-Natural And Actually Let Your Food Breathe

ETEE Organic Reusable Food Wraps, $18 (3 Pack), Amazon

Crafted from cotton fabric infused with beeswax and tree resin, these food wraps are totally organic and a unique and environmentally-friendly way to store your food. Reusable between 120 to 150 times on average, you simply wrap up your foods then rinse with cold water between uses — it's that simple. They provide an anti-microbial seal and actually keeps your food fresher, longer by letting it breathe.


39. A Gooseneck Phone Holder Is More Bendy Than A Yogi

Tyrone Gooseneck Phone Holder, $11, Amazon

With more moves than your yoga teacher, this phone holder is equipped to help you watch your device upside down and backwards if that's how you like it — it's just that good. With an overall length of 27.5 inches, it's long enough to extend across your desk or your bed, and the spring grip is compatible with most smartphones. With all its twisting capabilities, you can move it around to view your device in portrait or landscape mode, and it's crafted from sturdy ABS plastic, so it's ultra-durable for longterm use.


40. These Calf Sleeves Will Make You Light On Your Feet

Danish Endurance Calf Sleeves, $7, Amazon

They're not socks, and they're not tights, but they'll make you light on your feet — so what, exactly, are they? They're calf sleeves, made using graduated compression technology to increase your circulation and prompt fast muscle recovery in your calves, feet, ankles, and legs. Not only are these accessories great for athletes, but if you have a job that keeps you on your feet, you'll love these breathable, sweat-wicking half-stockings.


41. A Mat That Makes Baking A Breeze In So Many Ways

BakeItFun Cookie Mat, $8, Amazon

Anyone who loves baking needs this mat, period. Crafted from high-quality food-grade silicone, it features rulers on two sides to help when you're cutting out crusts or laying out baked goods, plus handy round guides to assist in spacing biscuits, cookies, or other treats before putting them in the oven. No harmful chemicals are needed to keep your foods from sticking as this mat does the trick. Plus, it's FDA-approved and BPA-free, and the mat cleans up just as easily — just throw it in the dishwasher and it washes right off.


42. This Is The Lip Care That's Beloved By All The Cool Kids

Kopari Coconut Lip Glossy, $12, Amazon

What's more moisturizing than coconut oil? Not much, and that's why this balm has become a crowd favorite for its luscious hydrating superpowers, both as an overnight treatment and for everyday use. Your lips will soak up this all-organic balm that also includes vitamin E and shea butter, and you'll acquire a glossy shine and supple appearance, too. All Kopari products are non-GMO and paraben-, cruelty-, and sulfate-free.


43. The Toilet Paper Holder That Solves One Common Problem That Means You Might Not Need Rice

APL Toilet Paper Holder, $25, Amazon

Let's face it: We all take our smartphones to the bathroom. In doing so, we're courting trouble, and this toilet paper holder has the answer in the form of a shelf that means you might not be buying quite so much rice in the near future — nor going on as many toilet-bowl fishing expeditions. Crafted from high-quality stainless steel with a polished chrome finish, it's as attractive as it is useful, and it installs easily with the included mounting hardware.


44. This Clock Will Wake You Up One Way Or Another, Or Another

Mpow Projection Alarm Clock, $29, Amazon

It has a flashing projection function. It has dual alarms with a standard buzz. It will wake you up with your favorite FM radio station. One way or another, this alarm clock will wake you up. The projection mode has three brightness levels that you can adjust depending on just how intrusive you need it to be in order to wake you up, while the clock itself tilts within a 120-degree range to display the time at your preferred angle.


45. These Aren't Cornhole Beanbags, They're Air Fresheners

Jalousie Mini Air Purifying Bags, $17 (Set of 12), Amazon

Leveraging the power of charcoal to absorb and eliminate odors, these air purifiers may look like your average beanbags, but they do so much more: They'll deodorize your shoes, your bathroom, your locker, or your gym bag. Chemical-free and non-toxic, they need only be recharged by sitting in direct sunlight for a couple of hours on a monthly basis, and they'll give you years of stench-staunching service.
