Borrowed from the Boys: 5 Beauty Products You Can Steal From Your Boyfriend
It goes without saying that we always want what we can’t have – and that’s often because what we want is a bit out of reach. Fortunately for us, our boyfriends have an arsenal of products that you never knew you wanted, and are obviously well within reach.
Just think about it for a second, their razors – way better, their shaving cream – clearly better.
So if you end up sleeping over and you’re without some of your mainstay vanity heroes, it would be perfectly acceptable to swap these into the mix. From shower gel to scrubs and basically everything in between, we’ve rounded up five products you can absolutely borrow from the boys.
1. Kiehl’s Blue Astringent Herbal Lotion, $27
Any Kiehl’s brand enthusiast knows that these products can seriously transform the look and feel of your skin. If your boyfriend has this herbal lotion in his bathroom, he’s a keeper. Simply moisten a cotton pad with this toner and apply to the areas of the skin that need it the most. Prepare to see instant and lasting results.
2. Ahava Mineral Shower Gel, $25
This shower gel is enriched with Dead Sea minerals and plant extracts for a soothing finish. After your shower, you will notice that your skin is visibly clean and moisturized. This product also happens to be an ideal candidate for those with sensitive skin as it’s free of petroleum, synthetics and GMOs.
3. Jack Black Face Buff Energizing Scrub, $22
While this deep-cleaning scrub can be used prior to his daily shave, we think it could work wonders for a once-weekly facial buff. Infused with vitamin C for brightening power, this treatment will easily and effectively remove dead layers of skin, dirt and oil, revealing a more refreshed you come morning.
4. Clinique for Men Aloe Shave Gel, $23
Your legs will thank you, we promise. This aloe-rich gel will help soften and soothe your skin post-shave, all the while balancing your complexion. While he might love this for his beard, the same TLC can be direct towards your body. Simply work in a generous lather, and voila!
5. Anthony Ingrown Hair Treatment, $39
Ingrown hairs are no joke, and this formula can work wonders for both you and him. Not only will it remove dead skin cells all the while fighting pesky bacteria, but it will help stop ingrown hairs from forming. This treatment is also infused with lavender and willowherb for an instant and lasting calming effect on the skin.
