It’s 6:45 a.m., and you’re running late for work. To make matters worse your shaving gel just ran out, leaving your legs resembling a cactus plant in the Mojave Dessert. You spot your guy’s shaving cream on the bathroom sink. Sure, it’s made for men, but can it be good for women too? Oh YES! Lather up those prickly legs and put that cream to good use!
So what other products can couples share in the bathroom?? Below are ten beauty items that will not only save you precious space in the bathroom but will keep both you AND your man looking fab.
#1 Body Lotion – An unscented or light fragrance lotion works best for both sexes. I suggest Eucerin Skin Daily Balance Body Lotion or Nivea Body Lotion.
Nivea Body Essentially Enriched Daily Lotion ~ $5.99
#2 Deodorant – Chicago-based dermatologist Dr. Carolyn Jacobs, says it’s ok to share an antiperspirant like Dove Men+Care’s to shield against wetness and guard against odor. Oh and it’s a lot stronger than women’s deodorants!
Dove Men+Care Clinical Protection ~ $7.99
#3 Facial Polishing Power – Every guy needs to learn how to exfoliate. This powder can be mixed with any facial cleanser to create an exfoliating scrub. So chic! You can even mix it with water if your guy hasn’t stepped up to a “facial cleanser” yet.
