We Seriously DON'T Get These 26 Beauty Products

We do some pretty crazy things in order to look our best. And, these strange behaviors are typically coupled with even stranger products. From a rotating curling iron to a rubber face mask, all of these wacky wares have made their way into our beauty routine at some time or another. That said, there are some beauty inventions out there that we flat-out don't get — and that make us feel like we'll never stop laughing at their ridiculousness.

Whether it's poo drops so your sh*t don't stink, a facial-contouring device that looks like a sex toy, or reusable(!) fart-absorbing pads, some of the weirdest beauty products around are straight ahead. Hey...maybe you'll find something you never realized you needed before. You know, like pheromone-laced shaving cream.

Voya's seaweed bath actually sounds super relaxing and great for your skin — except for one little snag. A disclaimer on the box states that since it's made from real, dehydrated seaweed, tiny crustaceans may still be adhered to the plants. So, when they soak, you may get an unexpected fishy surprise along with you in the tub. Uhh...

Voya Lazy Day Soak, $32, available at Voya.

Why spend a ton of money on regular hair dyes when you can pop a pill to banish those dreaded gray hairs? And, if you like these, perhaps we can interest you in this bottled fairy dust we have over here.

Life Vitality
Gray Hair Rescind Capsules, $12.95, available at Amazon.

The Nu Face claims to give you a mini face-lift at home with the help of electric micro-currents. We've seen it in action, and we can tell you firsthand that it definitely works, but that didn't stop us from being seriously weirded out that we were repetitively zapping our face with electricity. Also, is it just us, or does this look like something you'd take to bed with you instead of something you'd rub on your face?

Nu Face Trinity Facial Toner, $325, available at Nu Face.

It may seem super weird, but boob sweat is actually a thing a lot of us deal with. So, even though it's kind of marketed funny (fresh breasts, anyone?), we can see the benefit in this out-of-the-box tube.

Fresh Body Fresh Breasts, $12.99, available at Fresh Body.

We're not sure what the weirdest part about these poo drops is: that they were released by beyond-chic beauty brand Aesop, that they were a collaboration with beyond-chic fashion brand A.P.C., or that they're poo drops...

Aesop Post-Poo Drops, $29, available at Aesop.

Look, a shaving cream that's specially formulated for below-the-belt actually sounds like a good idea. But, Crazy Girl's version is infused with pheromones to help attract your lover. We're not ones to judge, but if you need pheromones to lure someone in once you've already stripped down, you may want to rethink your strategy.

Crazy Girl Wanna Be Naked Shave Creme, $17, available at Crazy Girl.

We all want smooth feet, right? Sure — but Baby Foot takes that a step further. You apply the pads, and then a few days later, the skin on your feet peels off in one sheet. Your feet molt. Do a Google search of this product and see the results — we dare you.

Baby Foot Easy Pack, $25, available at Dermstore.com.

A snail-slime face mask is supposed to revitalize and rejuvenate your skin, but we totally get why some people may not be the biggest fans of this mask.

We swear by the BeautyBlender, but do we really need to worship it on an elaborate, bejeweled throne? You decide.
