Some beauty innovations are cutting edge and well worth their money for the convenience or glamorous look they provide. Here are nine beauty inventions that are just plain odd.
Yes, in honor of Play-Doh’s 50th anniversary, the nostalgic scent of the modeling clay was bottled and sold as a cologne. It appears to be still available on fragrance company Demeter’s website, and hey, at least it won’t get rock solid if you leave the lid off.
Toast and Jam Bodywash Set:
So hungry that you can barely make it through your morning shower? Yeah, this will make that even worse. It may look tempting, but don’t lick the soap in this very unique and sweet-looking Toast and Jam Bodywash Set. Because really, who wouldn’t love a toast-shaped sponge and a soapy jam to start their day?!
It’s called “sleep support for your breasts.” This device, which is inserted between your breasts as you snooze, is created for a few reasons: to try to decrease the appearance of wrinkles in your cleavage and to help relieve back pain for people who sleep on their side or who have had breast implants. It’s gotten attention on shows ranging from “Ellen” to “The Doctors.”
Ninja Toothbrush Sanitizer:
Who better to trust to sanitize your toothbrush than a ninja? According to company claims, this nifty little ninja-themed gadget will karate-chop bacteria thanks to a VIOlight germicidal UV bulb. A blinking bulb on the ninja’s belly tells you it’s working; when the blinking stops, his work is done. Hay-yah!
What can you say about this oddly shaped comb aside from the fact that the user may have a few personal problems. Can’t you just picture it: “C’mon, Junior, let me comb your hair….”
FUZE Slenderize Guilt Free Lip Gloss:
Makers of this cosmetic trend were hoping that fans of FUZE drinks may have a taste for the FUZE Slenderize Guilt Free Lip Gloss. When it was sold by Sephora and other retailers back in 2008 (we couldn’t find it available anymore online) the makers touted that the lip gloss made users’ lips shine and gave them a boost of energy along with curbing their appetite.
Blood Bath Shower Gel:
This one-of-a-kind shower gel will have you seeing red each morning… we kid you not. Perfect for a Halloween gag gift, this one will also be a great choice for all those “Dexter” fans out there. Go ahead… give new meaning to the phrase, “Get bloody clean!”
ColorOn Professional Instant Eye Shadow Applicators:
If you can’t seem to reproduce at home the perfect look a makeup artist created for you, the makers of the stick-on eye shadow think they have the answer. It works like this: Peel back the applicator from the card and center it on a closed eyelid. Hold in place at each corner of the eye and rub the back of the applicator with your index finger. Once you remove, it should be on your eye. The creators – colorOn Professional – say the stick-on eye shadow is waterproof and crease-proof, too.
Flowbee Home Haircutting System
Who can forget the original weird beauty invention, the Flowbee?! Folks who want to avoid the salon just can’t seem to get enough of the Flowbee Haircutting System. The contraption uses the suction power from the Flowbee super mini vac or a vacuum cleaner to cut the hair. If you dare, it can cut hair from a half inch to 6 inches long, and works on pets, too. This one has — and will always — leave us scratching our heads.
