There are very few universal truths in life, but there's definitely one we can all agree on: Everybody enjoys a good surprise now and then. For me, nothing's more of a surprise than the freaky products on Amazon. The sweet sound of someone asking "Hey, what the heck is this?" while quizzically picking up my brand new snail mucin face mask is music to my ears. That's a snail mask, and it's absolutely great for your skin.
Don't be alarmed though — while all of these products can definitely qualify as freaky (the charcoal pads that filter out your farts come to mind), they're also genuinely useful. Who can resist a silicone trivet shaped like the chalk outline at a crime scene, or even the metal meat claws that are great for shredding meat (but even better for pretending to be Wolverine)? And while I can't say for certain whether or not I'm in dire need of an adult dog butt coloring book, I also can't say I'm slightly jealous of anyone who snags one.
So with so many freaky products on Amazon that you need to see to believe, what are we waiting for — there's a skin-softening mask for your bum that's calling your name.
1. This Hydrating Foil Face Mask
The Skin Republic foil face mask contours to the shape of your face, which also helps the serum to absorb quicker into your skin — while also making you look like the tin man. The hyaluronic acid in this mask helps to bring back moisture in seriously dehydrated skin, and can leave you glowing.
2. A Therapeutic Ball That Helps Improve Blood Circulation
Unlike traditional massage balls, the Applicators Lyapko acupuncture ball has hundreds of small spikes all over it — ones that won't damage your skin, of course — that help to increase blood circulation while relieving soreness and pain. It even claims to boost mood and help with your energy, and it's great for use on both your hands as well as your feet.
3. The Stress-Relieving Putty That's Also Magnetic
Not only is squishing it between your hands great for relieving stress, but the Nicpro slime putty is also magnetic, which means you can manipulate it with a variety of magnets for added fun. You can bounce, stretch, tear, shape, and shatter this putty as a way to kill time or simply fidget — and it's made from silicone grease, so it won't dry out or crumble over time.
4. A Tool That Makes It Easy To Dislodge Stubborn Earwax
Cleaning your ears with cotton swabs can actually cause the wax to clog, making your ear even worse — so try using The Ear Doctors wax remover tool instead. This odd gadget makes it easy to irrigate your ear canal to get those hard-to-reach spots that swabs can't reach (and you're not supposed to use those anyway). Reviewers love that it comes with a handy towel to clean up any spills.
5. The Oven Mitts Shaped Like Fun Bear Paws
If you can't bear to burn your hands when handling hot pans, grab yourself a pair of the Fred & Friends bear oven mitts. These mitts are made from insulated, breathable cotton and heat-resistant silicone that keep your hands safe from high temperatures, and one Amazon reviewer noted a hidden perk: "It forces the less-helpful people in my house to pull things from the oven, as then they can wear the bear mitts to do so!"
6. The Pasta Server Set Made From Durable Scratch-Free Nylon
Metal utensils can wind up scratching your cookware, but the Octopus Kitchenware pasta server set is made from durable nylon that won't scratch your pots and pans — and of course, they're weirdly adorable. The set comes with a noodle scoop, sauce ladle, as well as a serving spoon, and the feet all have suction cups underneath them so that you can easily stand them upright while you cook.
7. A Face Pudding Made With Activated Black Bamboo Charcoal
The activated black bamboo charcoal in this Boscia charcoal pore pudding helps to absorb toxins and dirt from your pores — but the added binchotan white charcoal in helps to minimize their appearance and balance your skin's hydration levels. It only takes 20 minutes to reap the full benefits of this mask, and it's also safe for people with sensitive skin.
8. The Tool That Makes It Easy To Massage Your Neck And Back
It can be hard to reach sore spots on your neck and back, so try using the Empower back and neck massager tool instead. This lightweight and portable tool relieves soreness and stiffness in your muscles as you apply pressure by pulling on the handle, and the massage ball handle can also be used to directly target knots.
9. A Glove That Makes It Easy To Brush Away Excess Pet Fur
With over 250 soft rubber tips that latch onto and pull away excess hair, the Bonve pet grooming glove makes it easy to brush away excess pet fur — and even massages your pet in the process. The other side of this glove is made with woven velour that makes it easy to remove hair from your furniture, and the wrist strap can be adjusted depending on your preferred fit.
10. The Silicone Trivet Mat Shaped Like A Crime Scene Outline
Made from food-grade silicone that's non-slip and BPA-free, the PELEG DESIGN trivet mat is shaped like a chalk outline (featured in every crime show, of course) and is heat-resistant up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. Since it's made from silicone, this trivet won't absorb any unwanted odors, mildew, or stains.
11. The Claws That Make It Easy To Shred And Serve Meat
Made from high-quality stainless steel that won't rust or corrode over time, these claws make it easy to shred pork, beef, chicken, and other meats — plus, you can also use them to lift and serve food right off the grill. Heat-resistant up to 1,112 degrees Fahrenheit (yep), and the wooden handle means that you won't need to wear heat-resistant gloves when using these claws.
12. A Wine Bottle Stopper Shaped Like A Fun Rubber Chicken
Made from food-grade silicone, the Fred & Friends wine bottle stopper can be squeezed to fit into any bottle, regardless of whether it's wine, beer, or a soda. The silicone design is also resistant to mold and bacteria so that you won't have to worry about the contents of your bottle becoming contaminated, and the rubber chicken design is a fun gimmick practically everybody can enjoy.
13. The Bunion Guard That Slowly Releases Vitamins And Mineral Oil
Whether you're looking for relief from painful bunions or simply want to re-align any overlapping or crooked toes, the NatraCure big toe bunion guard is right up your alley. This guard is made from a soft and durable gel that release medical-grade mineral oil, vitamin E, and aloe vera so that your skin is left feeling hydrated as well as nourished — and you can even wear it while you're wearing shoes.
14. A Plunger That Can Power Through Practically Any Clog
When traditional plungers fail to work, try using the ToiletShroom plunger to bust through any stubborn clogs. This plunger has a flexible design that allows you to push through all the gunk, and the stainless steel construction is resistant to rust. You can also use this plunger as a squeegee to clean the inside rim of your toilet bowl, and each order also comes with a caddy holder for added convenience.
15. The Tool That Helps Prevent Sore, Tired Feet
If your feet easily grow tired and sore easily, try using the Elgin foot exerciser to boost your stamina. This tool lets your feet do resistance exercises to strengthen your muscles, and it's also great for treating pain from plantar fasciitis or heel spurs. One Amazon reviewer even raved that after using it for only a few days that "the stiffness and pain were gone, [and] the aching subsided considerably!"
16. A Massage Roller Stick That's Designed To Work All Over Your Body
If you need some major relief all over — the Coolife muscle roller stick can be used on your arms, legs, thighs, hip, waist, belly, and more. It's great for relieving pain from soreness, aches, and knots since the large knobs are able to reach deep into your tissues, or you can even use it as a pre-workout to help warm-up your muscles and increase blood circulation before you exercise.
17. The Foot Scrubber That Attaches To The Bottom Of Your Tub
For a deep and thorough clean, the Bath Blossom foot scrubber brush has multiple suction cups attached to the bottom that secure it to the bottom of your tub. The dense and sturdy bristles allow you to massage and exfoliate away the dead skin from your feet, and each order also comes with a hanging hook so that storing it is simple.
18. A Tool That Lets You Humanely Capture And Release Insects
If you've ever felt bad killing a bug just because it was in your house (and would like to avoid using any harsh chemicals inside your home), then why not use the My Critter Catcher insect catcher to release them outside humanely? This tool works on spiders, roaches, scorpions, crickets, wasps, and more — plus, the grabber at the end keeps you and the insect safe.
19. The Gel Mask That Helps Reduce Swollen, Puffy Eyes
Not only can you combat dark circles and swollen, puffy eyes — but the Sofida gel face mask is also a great way to relieve pain from migraines and headaches. You can easily keep this mask in your refrigerator or freezer as a way to cool down after a long, tiring day, and the plush cover feels soft and comfortable as it rests against your face.
20. A Superfood Additive Packed With Vitamins And Minerals
Just add the Greenbow organic bee pollen to your cereal, yogurt, shake, shakes, or any other meal — and you'll quickly get a nourishing boost of amino acids, vitamins, minerals, and more. There are no additives, preservatives, or synthetic colors in this — and helps with gut health, gives you energy, and helps prevent colds. As always, talk to your doctor before starting new supplements.
21. The Heat-Resistant Gloves That Also Protect Your Forearms
Unlike traditional oven gloves that only protect your hands and wrists, the BlueFire heat-resistant gloves reach all the way down your forearm — which makes them great for handling foods directly over the grill. Heat-resistant up to 932 degrees Fahrenheit, these gloves are made with cut-resistant fibers so that you can also work with sharp knives and utensils without having to worry about any accidental cuts or tears (to both yourself and the gloves.)
22. A Hygiene Kit That Helps You Remove Stubborn Plaque And Tartar
When regular brushing won't do the trick, try using the Dental Duty oral hygiene kit to get rid of any stubborn plaque or tartar. Great for dental professionals and novices alike (although be careful, please!), these tools are made from surgical-grade stainless steel that won't rust over time, and each order comes with four: one dentist mirror, dental scaler, tartar/plaque scraper, and one dental toothpick (which gets rid of whatever's stuck between your teeth).
23. The Knife That Helps Your Butter Melt Into Your Bread
Made from rust-resistant stainless steel, the Simple Spreading magic butter knife has several small, slotted holes that are designed to make your butter curl — allowing it to melt and spread easily on your bagel, toast, and more. The serrated edge also makes it easy to slice bread as well as butter, and one Amazon reviewer noted that when using this knife, "spreading cold butter is no longer a problem."
24. A Head Massager That Vibrates To Improve Blood Circulation
Why pay for an expensive professional massage when you can just use the Kimkoo handheld head massager right in the comfort of your own home? This handy tool only needs one AA battery (which is not included) for the steel wires to vibrate and massage your scalp. It'll even increase blood circulation.
25. The Bottle Caddy Designed To Look Like A Cute Sock Monkey
A great conversation piece at any party, the Fred & Friends sock monkey bottle caddy is made from soft woven wool and is designed to easily fit over any standard-sized bottles of wine, juice, or champagne. It also offers light protection from damage — and of course, makes a great gift.

You could keep on grinding through life with uncomfortable back pain — or you could grab the ChiFit back pain relief tool and live a noticeably more comfortable life.

27. The Hydrating Cream Made With Bladderwrack Seaweed
Not only is it made with bladderwrack seaweed extract that's chock-full of vitamins and minerals — but the Mario Badescu seaweed night cream goes the extra mile by adding in collagen and hyaluronic acid to help moisturize your skin as you sleep. There's no oil in the formula so you won't have to worry about any leftover greasy residues, and it's also safe for combination, oily, and sensitive skin.
28. A TENS Device With Nine Pre-Programmed Stimulation Programs
Not only is the large LCD display easy to read as well as backlit, but the HealthmateForever TENS device also has nine pre-programmed stimulation programs as well as 15 different modes that make it easy to customize your pain relief. Each order comes with four pairs of electrode pads as well as four sets of dual-leads wires, and one Amazon reviewer raved: "over a period of about six weeks this has almost completely remedied my shoulder problems!" It basically massages in a more intense way than a roller.
29. The Eye Mask That Combats Stubborn Dark Circles
Whether you've got tired, puffy eyes, or stubborn dark circles that won't seem to go away, the BLAQ activated charcoal eye mask can help remedy both. This eye mask is made with activated charcoal as well as hydrating hydrogel that help nourish the skin around your eyes, and the added hyaluronic acid is also great for adding a boost of moisture to your complexion.
30. A Device That Makes It Easy To Strip Corn From The Cob
Instead of risking any stray cuts from using a knife to remove corn from the cob, try using the Chef'n corn stripper. Just insert your corn, then with one quick twist and a push the durable, stainless-steel blades will easily strip all the kernels from the cob. Great for salsas, cornbread, salads, and more, one reviewer noted that "this does a much nicer job than just cutting [corn] with a knife."
31. The Socks For People Who Don't Like Wearing Socks
I personally don't like wearing socks, but I hate when my toes are cold. Enter: these toe warmers. These toe warmers are thin enough that you can wear them inside of your shoes without adding any uncomfortable bulk, yet the neoprene blend helps insulate your toes so they won't get cold. And since you can also wear them on top of your socks for added warmth, they're great for skiing and other cold-weather activities.

Made from high-quality neoprene that won't absorb odors — the Breathe Right anti-snoring chin strap can easily be adjusted to fit anyone and helps prevent snoring.

Whether you've got calluses or dry, cracked feet, the Lavinso foot peel mask can help exfoliate away any hardened or dead skin so that your feet are left feeling ultra-soft.

34. A Plasma Ball That Reacts To Your Touch
Whether you're decorating your home or looking for a fun addition to your office, the Katzco plasma ball is right up your alley.

The power cord is extra-long so that it's easy to plug-in regardless of where the outlet is, too.
35. The Survival Multi-Tool With A Built-In LED Flashlight
