Psst, here’s a little secret: your brother or boyfriend’s grooming products can actually work as well as or sometimes even better than your grooming products. We have a list of men’s grooming products that work well for woman. After reading this article, you’ll be thanking us for opening your eyes to the world of men’s grooming and all that it has to offer us.
Why use men’s deodorant when we have our very own version you ask? I’ve got two reasons for you. One: men’s deodorants are so much more effective, will last longer and so will not require you to reapply it every few hours. Two: as much as the deodorant companies seem to think so, not all women like to smell like flowers or baby powder, which is what we get when we use women’s deodorant.

2. Face Scrub
Men’s face scrub are harsher than women’s. So while using a man’s face scrub on your face is not a good idea, you can always use a men’s face scrub as a body scrub. The rough scrub is perfect for exfoliating your body and keeping your skin smooth.
3. Shaving Cream
All you need is a teeny tiny amount of shaving cream to make shaving your legs a much smoother experience. The shaving cream really does help you achieve a smoother, cleaner shave.
Okay seriously, whose idea was it to make those feeble razors for women? They are just not up for the job? Granted, our hair is not as coarse as men’s, but that does not mean we are happy with the weak razors that are available to us. Especially not when men have razors with three blades for a closer shave. Have you tried those razors? They are awesome and they definitely do give you a closer shave. Once you try them you will not want to go back to women’s razor.
5. Hair Gel
Help yourself to your boyfriend’s hair gel when you want to try some complicated hairstyle. Men’s hair gel have a better hold and will help keep your hair in place, no matter how much you party and dance all night long. Now that’s what we call a winner.
If you love the earthy scent of men’s cologne, then why deprave yourself of it? Dab it onto your wrist and you will be smelling as good as your man does.
Spotted a zit popping up? Simply dab a little aftershave on it and it will take care of it. You can also use aftershave right after shaving your legs to soothe the skin and take care of any nicks.
8. Beard Comb/Brush
If your man sports a beard then chances are high that he owns a beard comb. A beard and mustache comb is perfect for teasing your hair. So if you want to back comb and tease your hair to give it some height and volume, then a beard comb is the perfect tool for that.
Men’s bodywash comes in clean, no-nonsense fragrances such as mint and citrus. I love that and I know for a fact that most women are sick and tired of sweet, fruity fragrances. So go ahead and steal your brother’s bodywash.
If you have extremely dry skin that tends to flake, then try using a men’s moisturiser. You will be surprised at how well it works. Men’s moisturisers are made to work on their tough skin and so tend to be more moisturising.

So what are you waiting for? Go ahead and raid your man’s vanity and make use of his products. But be warned, he may sulk when he finds out that you’ve been helping yourself to his precious products.
