3 Skincare Products to Borrow from Your Groom
How often does your man ‘borrow’ your apricot face scrub or your under eye treatment? Probably more often than you think or care to know. Our men have been using products from our medicine cabinet for years! But have you ventured over to your husband’s side of the sink lately? With recent innovation in men’s skincare and shave essentials, you’re sure to find something you’ll love! After a quick trip to Sephora for a face scrub, I came home with a $25.00 men’s shave sample kit. To my surprise, I fell in love with more than just a new scrub! Here are 3 products that every gal should consider stocking on her side of the sink.
1) Anthony Logistics for Men Advanced Formula Lip Balm SPF 25 in Mint and White Tea
As the summer days continue to heat up, you’ll want to protect your skin including your lips with a sun block. While there are plenty of lip balms with SPF in them, you’ll love this one for the same reasons your man does. It’s super matte! No high gloss or shine. There’s a time and place for everything- including glossy lips. This lip balm keeps your lips well moisturized and protected from the sun’s harmful rays without looking over done. And you and your man will enjoy the sweet mint flavor.
2) Clinique Skin Series for Men Face Scrub
As a lover of all things that keeps a gal beautiful, one thing I don’t care for is harsh facial scrubs or exfoliators. However, I know that sloughing off dead skin helps to keep my skin glowing- so I partake in the weekly beauty regimen with most women. If you prefer a mild scrub like I do, you’ll enjoy this facial scrub for many reasons specifically- it’s a gentle formula that does not leave your skin dry after you use it like many scrubs. It also has a ‘cooling effect’ that many men enjoy- you’ll be quick to fall in love with it as well.
3) Shaveworks The Cool Fix
Our men aren’t the only ones who suffer from razor bumps or ingrown hairs. For gals with curly hair or for gals who remove hair where curly hair grows, you can find ingrown hairs under your arms, in the bikini areas, or even in your brow line. The Cool Fix is a “targeted gel lotion” which treats ingrown hairs, razor bumps, burns, and redness. The gel lotion is particularly helpful for women who prefer to shave, wax or use electrolysis on their bikini line. Apply the product after hair removal and you’ll have a cool way to keep bumps and burn at bay.
