It’s common for boys to pilfer girls’ skincare products, right? But I came to ponder the fact recently that in our household, there’s a bit of reciprocity. I must admit that I’ve had a hand in directing my other half to use unfragranced products and diligently moisturise. Not to mention gently nudging him away from using shampoo as a general-purpose cleanser towards using dedicated products for face, body and hair.

Here’s the list of things I’d miss, if he weren’t sharing my bathroom!

  1. Cerave Healing Ointment: a great barrier repair unguent for dry lips, elbows cuticles and heels.

  2. Avene Shaving Gel – the only thing I’ll use now to shave my naturally dry legs.

  3. Bioderma Atoderm SOS Spray – to manage itchy skin with driving the itch-scratch loop.

  4. Cetaphil Moisturising Cream – a generously sized all-purpose moisturising cream that won’t clog pores.

Now, fingers crossed he doesn’t see this week’s video ….!
