Just doing a bit of picking up around here this week and I noticed a few things out of place. Since I have my own space in the house its just me myself and I and have discovered my face lotion not on the shelf as it belongs but instead in the medicine cabinet. My body lotion not in the bedroom but instead its in the living room.

I know he wont admit it, but the dear bf has been using my lotions and potions.

Just wondering how many of you women 'share' your 'girly' products with your men? (face creams, lotions, moisturizers, face washes, body washes etc) One day I will catch him in the act! :lol:

This reminded me of something that happened when I was a teenager. I had some shower gel I had purchased with my own money. I noticed it was being used very quickly (more than I was using it) and I really went off on my younger sister. She denied using it, which made me angrier of course, and our parents came to referee the argument. Once my dad found out what we were arguing about he had to admit that he was the one who had been using it. :laugh: Pretty funny but I did start keeping "my" stuff in my dresser instead of the bathroom. ;)

Philip would never use my girly stuff, unless there was no other soap or lotion in the house. :)

As far as I know my fiance hasn't been using my girly lotions or shower gels. He does borrow a nail file or one of my nail clippers when he needs them. I gave him an extra tweezer that I hadn't ever used (I don't remember what he wanted to tweeze.) He bought a suave body lotion before we moved in together that I use, he didn't like the scent (cotton blossom).

I don't usually use girly lotions, just your everyday kinda stuff. He does use those since he works outside delivering mail 5-6 days a week. The weather is really killer on his skin & his hands are the worst, especially in winter, with deep cuts.:(
There is lotion in the livingroom, at the kitchen table, in the bathroom, in the bedroom...lotion city, lol.

^^^ Ok Darlene, that too funny. Now if they're all different scents then it appears that I *MAY* have some competition! ;)

I guess its not really girly stuff Im asking about - just 'your' grooming items that men would typically not use. I know he likes my special hand lotion - spa type hand creams (since its winter and his knuckles are so dried and chapped - last time I looked, his hands looked better then mine dang nabbit! :laugh:) - just things like that. I guess items that are marketed towards women more then men :lol:

Dh uses my stuff so i started buying less girly scents and we share everything but deodorant. its cheaper that way. and i personally dont like scented lotions day to day since i had DS(3) i save them for days when i need a pep-up

alot of the guys i know are big time groomers and dont mind the sweet smelling stuff.
I have to say my DH always smells delicious.

Nope. DH has his own stuff, although we do share shampoo, conditioner and body wash. I buy those that are less girly smelling.

He doesn't want to get his guy card taken away. :D

DH uses a lot of my lotions and potions. He goes to bed a lot earlier than I do, and every day when I'm telling him goodnight I put eye cream on him. :crackup: He also lets me pluck his stray eyebrows from time to time.

Yes, even my shave lotion which is really funny because it's called "Coochy"(the best stuff IMO, check my siggy for more info), he uses it to shave his beard, so he has my "Coochy" on his face (crude joke, yes, but it's true) He and i both use suave deodorant, unscented. so even though we each have a tube of our own, it's likely that we share a few times. We use unscented lotions for the most part, because the kids use it too. :)
