23 Bizarre Products Trending On Amazon That Are Actually Genius AF

There are a lot of things on the internet that make you go "WTF?" Most of that stuff is just straight up bizarre, but some of it is actually useful — and when it comes to the world of online shopping, sometimes the most bizarre products trending are actually brilliant lifesavers.

If you want to see what I'm talking about, head right on over to Amazon. Over the last few years, they've really upped their game when it comes to finding innovative and unusual products. I never thought I'd need a knife that shreds butter on contact. I'm guessing it's something you haven't thought about either. But once you have toast with perfectly distributed butter, you'll wonder how you went so many years without such a knife. From Himalayan Sea Salt night lights to silicone wine glasses, these weird products are practical necessities wrapped up in some weird bows — but once you use them, you'll won't know how you lived without them.

So, if you're looking for the perfect pair of food scissors or you just want to peruse the odd offerings Amazon has on display, look no further. Hopefully, you'll find a bizarre product or two that you'll come to love.

1. A Ring To Make Painting Your Nails Even Easier

tweexy Wearable Nail Polish Holder, $7, Amazon

At first glance, this looks weird. But when you think about it, it's a fantastic idea! This silicone ring is made to hold a bottle of nail polish — and as you paint your nails, the polish is always at hand (I'm aware of that pun and I support it). As a person who's spilled nail polish hundreds of times when doing my own manicures, this ring is truly ingenious.

It even comes with a splatter shield, so you won't wind up with olive or cherry juice all over your kitchen. And nobody will be swallowing olive pits at your next cocktail party.

Amazker 3D Sleep Mask and Ear Plugs, $11, Amazon

This sleep mask is super comfortable and completely blocks out the light, just like any other eye mask should do. But this doesn't just look futuristic for the design of it — the extra deep eye cavities keep all pressure off your eyelids, so you hardly feel like you're wearing a mask at all. And that also means you won't smudge your eye makeup while you're napping on a plane or train, and it won't tug at your hair, either.

One reviewer talks about it's bizarre design: "When I received it, I thought there was a mistake, because it is more like a comb than brush. After trying it I was hooked. Slides through my hair without pulling, and best of all, the "brush" area is not extremely hot on the outside and doesn't burn me. Love it!"
