The Female Products That Men Love to Use When We Aren’t Looking!
We’ve all pulled on one of our partners hoodies at one stage or another right? They are just so much baggier, and comfier than ours aren’t they? Plus if he’s been wearing it before hand there is that added bonus of the occasional whiff of their aftershave! (C’mon, I can’t be the only one that loves that?)
But what we might not realise is that we have things that our partners secretly hanker after too. (You know, besides the obvious!) A recent Reddit thread reveals some of the weird and hilarious products that men love to get their hands on when we’re not around.
At Christmas I bought my girlfriend an extremely soft luxurious bath robe.
It’s even got a hood on it.
I first wore it to re-enact rocky montages.
Realised how soft it was, and now I have her extremely soft bath robe.

Aloe-infused fuzzy socks. When I’m being comfy at home, it’s entirely possible I will steal a pair of my wife’s to wear around the house.

I buy moisturiser from the women’s section of the supermarket. I can buy a tough looking tin of moisturiser with “FOR MEN” stamped into it’s carbon fibre looking lid for some stupid amount of money or just wander over to the women’s section and buy a jug that has so much I’ll be able to leave it to my unborn children and grandchildren for the same money

Unscented antiperspirant. So you can wear cologne without it clashing.

Sometimes, when I run out of fresh socks, I just hand into my girlfriend’s drawer and get one of her black pairs of socks. They are basically black socks, but they have a small frill on top of the shaft.
Its pretty funny, when I forget about it and sit in a meeting with my legs crossed, so my trousers slide up a little.

Makeup Brushes. Very useful for cleaning circuit boards and dusty computers.

Dry Shampoo. Why it is never marketed to men can only be explained as conspiracy.

Stay with me here. I do a lot of hiking in the AZ desert (Grand Canyon, etc.) where it can be in excess of 110 degrees. Shorts, even exceptionally breathable ones that end above the knees, do not really do much to ward off swamp crotch in these conditions.
For the longest time I accepted this as a fact of male life, until I realized I saw women hiking around all the time in skirts/skorts, and questioned why I wasn’t capitalizing off the benefits a skirt provides (answer: no reason other than the social idea that skirts are for women). It’s essentially like walking around in your underwear (or nothing at all if one prefers), except with a much more acceptable level of modesty.
You know those glorious moments when you have loose shorts on and the wind blows at just the right angle to shoot up the leg and ventilate the moist inferno that your crotch melted into (110+ degrees, remember)? Imagine that happening all the time. I decided to give a big middle finger to gender norms when it comes to outdoors clothing; ya’ll can laugh when you see me, but know that I get to feel, where you cannot, the freeing ecstasy that can only come from a cool breeze wafting over your balls in the scorching heat of the desert.

Those strips you dampen, put on your nose, leave to dry then whip off to unclog your pores.
Love those things.

Concealer. Honestly, it’s one of the greatest things for people with not-the-greatest skin. It’s boosted my confidence by bounds.
Also, perfume and women-oriented soaps. I mean come on. Who doesn’t want to smell like a vanilla cookie?

Expensive salon shampoo and conditioner. Sure beats the hell out of my Old Spice 2 in 1 shampoo+conditioner. It literally turns my beard into silk.

Garnier Anti-Puff Eye Roller.
I’m a pretty normal, but handy and physical dude, but this stuff is great. put it on every morning and it really makes a difference in just not looking like a ghoul with bags under my eyes.

My buddy stole his wife’s ugg slippers- she’s never getting them back.

Slippers. Sorry, I’ll take those soft ass leopard print Target slippers over some shitty, stiff house shoes any day.

Bobby Pins. They do a good job of cleaning my ears and they have these rubber layered ones that won’t scratch your ear up. Same rule as q tips, don’t go too far. Except these things actually scoop the wax out instead of just pushing it to the back of my ear canal.

My dad accidentally used Vagisil as toothpaste once. He did not enjoy it but I enjoyed watching him use it.

Anti-frizz hair spray&mousse. Keeps it calm and wavy throughout the day. My girlfriend has yet to connect her missing hair products to my fabulous hair.

So there we have it! Who would have thought our cosmetics and clothing would be so attractive to the opposite sex?
Does your partner ever ‘borrow’ any of your stuff?
