Is your shampoo running out quicker than your stylist said it would?
Does your guy smell like your favorite body butter?
Don’t worry- your guy probably isn’t cheating on you! Instead, he might be using some of your products!
Don’t fret – this is not as abnormal as it may sound. In fact, 7 out of 10 men use some product meant for the opposite sex as part of their grooming ritual, according to groominglounge.com.
Below are 3 products your man is secretly using.
“Hey- this little brush thing works pretty well!” he said.
“You’re kidding me, right?” I said. “I’m going to have little beard hairs in my poof!”
We both laughed, but watching him use my teasing brush for his beard is what gave me inspiration for this blog post!
Shampoo & Conditioner
I don’t know about you, but I spend a good chunk of change for my shampoo and conditioner. I use Paul Mitchell's Awapuhi Wild Ginger Moisturizing Lather Shampoo. My stylist recommended this shampoo for my dry, thin, and damaged hair (and it's worth every penny). But be careful- your guy might not realize your shampoo and conditioner is expensive (and important).
If the bottle is close to his face and gets the job done, he’s going to use it without thinking twice.
And if he discovers the power of dry shampoo, he’ll be sure to snatch that up too! Dry shampoo is a waterless shower in a bottle. So unless he is stinky from basketball with his guys, he might be reaching for your dry shampoo when you aren’t looking.
Lotions and Creams
Shea butter and non-scented lotions are usually safe bets for guys to use, but he also might grab your sweet pea lotion if he is desperate.
Beyond using your body lotion, your guy might be reaching for other creams and lotions for his eyes, feet, and face. He doesn't like dark circles or wrinkles either.
In fact, I read a NY Times article earlier this year from that said, "A generation ago, men dismissed using anything besides shaving cream and after-shave on their faces as unmanly. But now, despite the recession, revenue from department stores for men’s skin care products in 2011 grew 11 percent over 2010, according to the NPD Group, a market research firm. And within the category, men’s eye creams grew even more dramatically, by 33 percent. Revenue for men’s eye products was $5.4 million in 2011, up from $3.5 million in 2007."
Times- they are a changing, my friends. Be open minded to sharing (or buying) products that help your man feel and look better.
