Best buys for your bloke (so that he won't steal yours)
So a few years back, my boyfriend at the time was staying over at my house one night.
After his shower, he came out of the bathroom and told me very matter-of-factly that he’d finished my body moisturiser and that I’d ‘best get some more’.
Knowing I had an almost-full bottle of AHAVA Mineral Body Lotion, and not believing he could have used it up all in one go, I was immediately suspicious.
Marching him back into the bathroom to show me this supposedly ‘empty’ bottle of lotion, I was horror struck when he pointed to my much-loved Chanel cream cleanser.
Yep, it turns out the man was in need of some moisturising and, instead of actually looking for the appropriate product, had just grabbed the nearest product he could find and slathered it all over his body.
What’s worse, he later confessed he’d been doing it for weeks! (Can you understand now why he’s my ex-boyfriend?)
So beauties, to ensure your coveted cosmetics don’t suffer the same fate as mine (that is, being wasted on a boy), get your man a stash of his own stuff. Here are a few of my suggestions:
NIVEA FOR MEN Exfoliating Face Scrub is the perfect product to keep his skin soft and smooth (in the most masculine way possible!). He’ll love the feel of the scrub particles as they clear away dirt, dry skin, and impurities in his pores.
L’Occitane en Provence Cade Shaving Cream and After Shave Balm are must-haves for any man. It utilises the antiseptic and strengthening properties of cade (also known as wild juniper), to soothe his skin and protect his face from the elements.
Sebastian Professional Craft Clay will keep your man’s mop in check. The ultra-blokey packaging will also stop him in his tracks before he reaches for your favourite styling product.
Have your coveted cosmetics ever wrongly fallen into the hands of your man?
