Beauty essentials for your man
We don’t really associate the words ‘men’ and ‘beauty’ too much, but we’ve recently discovered some interesting facts that may just change that.
In a recent survey, we found one in five Aussie men are stealing beauty products from the ladies in their lives. And it’s costing you close to $300 a year. Um, it’s time for boys to buy their own, right? Especially seeing as 90 per cent of women surveyed don’t think using beauty products makes men ‘less manly’ and 70 per cent think their men look better after stealing said products.
Basically, guys, we’re totally on board with you delving into the world of beauty. You look hotter for it. And smell better, too. Just not at our expense, por favor.
Our survey found men are mainly pilfering shampoo and moisturiser, followed by face and body wash (with some braver types even giving hairspray, wax strips and eyeliner a whirl), so we thought it would be handy to come up with a guide of what you can instruct your man to buy for himself. Because let’s face it, we ain’t shelling out the big bucks to share.
IF YOUR MAN STEALS YOUR FACE MOISUTRISER
Get him: MooseHead Oil Control Moisturiser Face Cream
This moisturiser will do more than just care for his daily hydration needs. Unbeknown to your man, this formulation will actually help to improve his skin tone, reduce skin redness and irritation, and even keep oily skin at bay.
IF YOUR MAN STEALS YOUR SHAMPOO
Get him: GAIA Made for Men Shampoo
Clearly he doesn’t know how much you spend on your hair care, otherwise he wouldn’t be squirting the good stuff into his hair on the daily. He can use this one every morning without a care in the world. Plus, rosemary extract will help to get rid of excess oil and dandruff flakes.
IF YOUR MAN STEALS YOUR BODY WASH
Get him: Natio For Men Maximum Energising Body Wash
You man could smell more…manly if he used something other than your floral-scented body wash. This energising wash will leave him smelling fresh, clean and rugged – kind of like he could chop down a tree with his bare hands.
IF YOUR MAIN STEALS YOUR HAIRSPRAY
Get him: Schwarzkopf Taft Full On Structured Modelling Wax
Only a man would think hairspray’s the best thing to use to style hair. Typical. This wax will help him to create whatever hairstyle he pleases with excellent results and much less effort.
IF YOUR MAN STEALS YOUR FACE WASH
Get him: Clinique for Men Face Wash
Look, we’re impressed he’s using more than water on his face, but he’ll be far better off if he uses a cleanser that gets rid of the grime and preps his skin for shaving.
IF YOUR MAN STEALS YOUR FACE MASK
Get him: Davinci De Stress Mud Mask
Chances are your man hasn’t been stealing this one on the sly, but it would have been great if he was. Encourage him to use this nourishing and purifying formulation for smoother, softer skin. You could even do a joint pampering sesh while sipping on a glass of vino and watching a good TV show!
Does your man steal your beauty products? Which products does he like best?
