There are times when you hop online for a little retail therapy and know exactly what you want. Other times, you become inspired by something so strange, you have to own it. Weird can be very good, especially when talking about strange best-selling products on Amazon that are actually brilliant. These aren't the items and gadgets that appear on ordinary shopping lists — these are unique, inspiring, sometimes off-the-wall products that will make you feel like the savviest shopper on the block.

Let's face it: there are a million face creams, loose tea infusers, and night lights on the market. If you're searching for a makeup sponge or desk lamp, the world is your oyster. But why settle for an ordinary product when you can snag one that has a cult following and works really, really well (because, otherwise, there's no point) and is just strange enough to make you smile and want to use it all the time?

And that brings me to this list — with its dinosaur tea infuser, stick-on night lights, desk lamp with seven brightness and five light color options, and a multi-tasking body and face cream that works as well to prevent acne as it does to soothe razor burn.

Get serious about strange products and they'll return the favor — and the ones are this list are that good.
