Have you ever heard that old classic "Get On The Good Foot," by the Hardest Working Man in Show Business, James Brown? He was nothing if not an original, and these unusual products from Amazon for your feet and hands are, too: They're all slightly, um, off the beaten path.
You've heard all the clichés, right? Put your best foot forward. Give me a hand. Well — when everyone's talking about your outer-most extremities, you know you'd better get them in order. Take action by getting your feet soft and exfoliated with a two-in-one soap and pumice bar. Or treat your hands to a moisturizing treatment with collagen gloves. Or get an ultra-intensive treatment for your feet with these gel-filled socks that really pack a punch when you sleep in them. Then there's the full range of therapeutic tools, running the gamut from a wooden foot massager to a three-piece grip trainer set that's available in various levels of resistance.
So don't let the fact that these stars are a bit odd concern you: that's what makes them the best-selling reviewer darlings that they are. You're going to want to treat yourself to a few of these products. After all, they'll make your feet and hands feel good.
1. This Foot Massager Is So Relaxing Your Feet Will Thank You
Crafted from prized Theaceae wood — a beautiful, durable tree that's related to the camellia and the tea plant — this massager provides relief that's just like getting a thorough tickling of your tootsies at the spa. The independently-moving rollers and acupressure nodules for you work against your heels to get that deep tissue reflexology, while gripping pads on the underside ensure firm placement on the floor.
2. The One Bar That Will Moisturize And Exfoliate Feet
Packed with shea butter, aloe, and vitamin E, the soap in this two-in-one marvel is emollient enough to nourish and moisturize your feet while cleaning them — and when you're done, simply flip it over to exfoliate with the pumice on the reverse while you're still in the shower. It's the double-duty spa treatment that fits right in your hand, and this award-winning all-star is now available in an activated charcoal model which uses that ultra-hot ingredient to detox your feet too.
3. The Odd But Amazing Gel Separators That Help Relieve So Many Common Foot Conditions
Give your feet a comforting, relaxing stretch with these unique spreaders. Crafted from medical-grade, BPA-free gel, they're inserted between the toes to provide a cushiony, gentle stretch that helps relieve the pain of common conditions like bunions, hammer toes, plantar fasciitis, or chronic foot pain while also improving balance and flexibility. Use them for just 15 minutes a day to see a difference.
4. The Cream That's — Hands Down — The Best Solution For Sweaty Palms
Sweaty palms aren't just for high school dances — because many grown-ups deal with this condition as well. Free from all the bad stuff like parabens, phthalates, formaldehydes, and sulfates, just a tiny amount of this lotion applied daily stops that condition in its tracks. Quick-drying and featuring natural eucalyptus oil as well as moisturizing properties, it nourishes the skin at the same time as reducing and eliminating hand sweat.
5. These Silicone Gloves Keep Your Hands Soft While You're Doing Dishes
Isn't it kind of weird that prolonged exposure to water is so damaging to your skin? At the end of the day, you'd kind of think it would be moisturizing, but you're much better off wearing these gloves made from food-grade silicone when you're doing water-related tasks like scrubbing the dishes or washing the car. The silicone bristles are tough enough to scrub vigorously but won't scratch paint or delicate china — and the gloves are so durable they'll last for up to three years.
6. This Clever Device Proves Fresh, Clean, And Baby-Soft Feet Are No Longer Outside Your Reach
Golfers and anyone who rides a horse will immediately identify with this gadget — it's obviously modeled on the devices made to clean golf spikes and riding boots — but this one uses the same idea in a new and genius configuration to give your feet a good scrub when you're in the shower. The top level of the scrubber gets the sole of your foot good and clean; then insert it inside for a pumice treatment. Flexible suction cups keep the device rock-steady on the floor of your shower.
7. A $10 Device That Provides Relief For Conditions Like Arthritis And Joint Pain
Designed for sufferers of arthritis and joint and tendon pain — or just people who are on their computers all day — this massage device is equipped with rollers at either end of its handle to provide pain relief and boost circulation. On one side, the rollers surround a finger at a time for an individualized treatment that stimulates blood flow and lessens stiffness — on the other, a single roller enables the application of pressure to specific problem spots, relieving hand pressure.
8. This Mask Really Gets Down To The Bottom (Layer) Of Things
You may have heard of these foot-peeling masks, but you really won't believe the results until you try them at home. The initial results can be a bit misleading: After wearing the booties for about an hour, not much happens. However, wait a bit — and tough, dead skin on your soles will begin to peel off, leaving your feet like new. Over the course of about two weeks, you'll have the soft, supple feet you of an infant.
9. The Moisturizing Gel Socks That Hydrate Overnight
Lined with medical-grade gel, these socks release moisturizing essential oils and botanicals to nourish the hardworking skin on on your feet while releasing a pleasant and relaxing lavender scent.

10. An Ingenious Hand Warmer That's Also A USB Phone Charger
How's this gadget for a cool little two-in-one wonder? Charge your phone out at the football game or camping, and you can get your hands warm at the same time, too — even on the shores of Lake Michigan in January.

Rechargeable and perfect for exercise during crisp fall and brisk winter months, it can run continuously for up to six hours.

It can be worn even while sleeping, and one size fits most.
13. A Cream That Will Get Your Nails In Amazing Shape, No Horsing Around About It
I wonder if we should just all adopt the beauty regime of thoroughbreds: They're shiny and glossy all the time, people fuss over them endlessly, and there are plenty of products out there dedicated to them.

Studded with acupressure nubs, this foot roller serves the same general purpose of the foam rollers that have become ubiquitous these days: Self-regulated acupressure massage.
