10 Men’s Products Women Should Try Too
This isn’t a fact that we’re likely to post on Facebook, but once in a while we’ve all grabbed our man’s deodorant when we were out of ours — or even lathered on a little Axe body wash just ‘cuz.
Not all men’s products are only worthy of use in a pinch. Sometimes items from his side of the medicine cabinet actually work better for us than the products that were supposedly created with women in mind.
These are the items that we’ve tried and liked. Are any of these on your list?
Unisex scents are in now, and trying his can have you loving a whole new scent — even if floral smells are usually your thing.
Unisex colognes mix with men and women’s body chemistry differently. You might be surprised at how much you like the scent (not to mention the added bonus of spending your day smelling like him).
A well-kept secret of ladies who find their deodorants don’t always do the trick? Men’s deodorants like Degree and Dove have the same ingredients — but the men’s versions are stronger. Try the unscented kind and you might find something that works on days when you’re planning to hit the gym.
Men’s razors are designed to tackle coarser hair, and sometimes they give you a closer shave. And because some of them come with very flexible heads, it can lead to less cuts.
It’s designed to keep men from getting razor bumps on their faces. But they’re also great at stopping razor bumps on ladies’ bikini lines.
It’s what men use to stop cuts they get after shaving. But it’s also great for cuts we get from our razors, and for stopping pimples from bleeding after they’ve popped.
It’s not only for men. It can also help soothe women’s sensitive areas after shaving, and prevent ingrown hairs and razor bumps.
OK, one more shaving product. Men use brushes to exfoliate before they shave. And they’re great for women too when you need to treat ingrown hairs before you shave for fewer cuts. Use it on sensitive areas every day and you’ll have smoother, softer skin.
If you live for it but the addiction is hurting your wallet, try eye cream made for men. Men’s products have the same ingredients as womens’ but they’re cheaper all around.
Women’s body wash usually comes in soothing, floral scents. But men’s body washes have spicy scents designed to wake you up and start your day. When you just can’t wake up or need to get in gear fast and get to the gym, it can’t hurt to try his cleanser for the day.
Men’s Face Masks
Men tend to have larger pores and skin that’s a little bit oilier. So if shine control is your goal, trying a man’s mask can give you a better result than anything on the market for women.
