12 Wacky Beauty Products With a Cult Following

We’ve all had that moment when we’ve seen a beauty product and thought, there’s no way that works. But as wacky as some beauty products might sound, some have gained a cult following worthy of a truly spectacular find. These are not your typical Target beauty brands. While the general idea might seem off-putting, these products are the go-to beauty hacks of some of the top beauty bloggers and celebs out there, and they’ve each got a plethora of rave reviews to prove it. Scroll on to check out 12 of the wackiest, most eyebrow-raising beauty products on the market — the ones that actually work.


1. NuFACE Trinity Facial Toning Device ($325): This crazy-looking tool can actually give you a mini face-lift from the comfort of your home. It smoothes the appearance of wrinkles with the help of electric micro-currents.

2. Lindsay Calendula Modeling Rubber Mask ($6): What’s wacky about a face mask, you ask? As it dries, it takes on a rubber-like consistency. Sure, you’ll probably look a little creepy, but with such great results, it’s hard not to love this best seller.

violentlipstemptattoos

3. Violent Lips in The Red Glitteratti ($10): Numerous lip trends have been on our radar this past year, but temporary lip tattoos wasn’t one of them. We have to admit, this trend is seriously cool. The temporary tats come in different colors and patterns, giving you a pout that makes a major statement.

4. Tinkle Eyebrow Shaper ($4/3-pack): The name alone has us raising our eyebrows, but after reading numerous rave reviews for this beauty tool online, we were intrigued. These gentle facial razors remove unwanted hair and painlessly shape your brows. The huge cult following behind these razors really speaks for itself.

5. Conair Infiniti Pro Curl Secret Curling Iron ($78): This hair tool is basically like a magic trick — you put a strand of hair into a barrel and seconds later you’re left with the perfect curl. It’ll make your morning hair routine a total breeze.

babyfootpeel

6. Baby Foot Lavender Exfoliant Foot Peel ($19): This foot mask is unlike anything you’ve tried before. Let your feet soak in the product-filled plastic bags for an hour each day, and soon your feet will be free of dry skin and calluses. It’s the ultimate exfoliation treatment for feet in need of some TLC.

brushcleaningglove

7. Sigma Spa Brush Cleaning Glove ($39): This hot pink glove might look a little silly, but it’s actually a super handy tool. All its nubs and grooves will get your makeup brushes squeaky clean, with the help of a little soap and water.

bombcurlbrush

8. Hair Tamer Bomb Curl Brush ($13): This is so not your typical hairbrush. With 360 degrees of bristles, it’s specifically designed to take control of unruly locks, untangling them painlessly. It’s a godsend for curly hair.

lumeephonecase

9. LuMee iPhone 6 Case ($55): This phone case is obviously not a beauty product, but it is the case of choice for perfectly lit selfies. Used by the selfie queen herself, Kim Kardashian, the case has an illuminated border for portable beauty lighting.

tweezermansmoothfinish

10. Tweezerman Smooth Finish Facial Hair Remover ($20): Medieval torture device or cult beauty product? This crazy-looking tool removes facial hair quickly and painlessly, leaving you with super soft, peach fuzz-free skin.

demeterdirtperfume

11. Demeter Fragrance Library Cologne Spray in Dirt ($17): Um, a perfume that smells like dirt? This little glass bottle might look like an April Fools’ Day joke, but it’s actually one of the most popular fragrances from perfumery brand Demeter. The notorious brand offers up a variety of unique, borderline bizarre fragrances, including Laundromat, Wet Garden and Dark Chocolate. Yum.

lushhennahairdye

12. LUSH Henna Hair Dye ($28): At first glance, you might think this bar is an artisanal piece of chocolate, but it’s actually a hair dye! This solid henna can be broken up into smaller pieces, heated and applied in liquid form. After leaving the concoction in your hair for two to four hours, you’ll be left with glossy, strong, richly colored locks.
