I just love our little conversations in the Facebook group.
I was getting a lot of funny DM’s about from many of you whose partners were stealing your ice rollers and so I wondered… What else are these boys (or girls!) stealing!?! I posted the question to the group and WOW. For the record I am presently single but still can 100% relate – my best guy friend who watches Tyrion used up all my favorite goop body wash, loves all my charcoal mud masks (especially this one) and dismantled my Clarisonic over the summer – OH BOYS. Your responses were so funny to read. The ice roller is definitely a boyfriend/husband/guy friend favorite… but there were some stranger ones in there too! A few of me had me actually laughing out loud; making me look slightly crazy on the plane yesterday.
Also before I go any further, my bathroom shelves above are these Command ledges. I have posted them 1,000,000 times and always get asked about them so am trying to get ahead of that. (And yes, they stay up – mine have been up for two years!)
Biore Pore Strips – these were a hot topic and probably the most frequently stolen item! Everyone had something to say aboutit.
Undereye gel masks – reader Elizabeth wrote that her boyfriend loves the Shiseido ones (fancypants!) and said, “of course, I tried to fob him off on the cheaper amazon ones, and he was having none of it.” LOL.
Weleda Skin Food – this was the second most frequently stolen item, which surprised me! And because it’s such a small tube, you guys are constantly repurchasing this one! The hilarious complaint was that your guy puts it EVERYWHERE. Betsy wrote in, “My husband has stolen my Skin Food so often I now I have to buy him his own. He continues to say he is “borrowing” mine, but it’s his.” (Sidebar: if you haven’t tried the new(er) Light Skin Food, it’s divine!)
Eye cream is another big one. And sometimes it makes men do their research. “My husband always steals eye cream! We’re using the Clark’s one you recommended and one night he came into bed to tell me the benefits of retinol he found from googling hahaha.”
Reader Dina has a fancypants husband. “My husband went from using only CeraVe cleanser a few years ago to having a full on regiment! He steals my Sunday Riley Ceramic Slip Cleanser and Good Genes daily. Also uses my Retin A and BR Masque Vivant. We mask together now! I hide my Augustinus Bader in my top drawer so he doesn’t know it exists, too valuable!!!” (yas girl, my ex started using my Dr. Bader and I was like NO.“
As does Gina. “I created a bit of a monster…the hubby now likes the La Mer face wash (so I bought him his own), the Clarisonic (has his own now), anything Living Proof, Ouai leave-in-conditioner, and any moisturizer I let him use!“
Or sometimes they’re more subtle. This made me laugh: Kaye wrote, “One of my favorite husband moments was when he walked out of the bathroom looking stressed and asked “did you know we’re running low on Milky Jelly?“
The consensus was that Kiehl’s is a favorite because guys think it looks manly.
A surprising one? LUSH bath bombs! LOL. Also, THREE of you told me your hubs requested silk pillowcases and eye masks after sleeping with yours!
Or they go for your expensive shampoos + conditioner, claiming that they like the smell of your hair. A likely story: “my head and shoulders buying husband keeps using my Oribe Shampoo because he loves the smell of my hair.”
Oribe was another hot topic. One of the funniest things you guys reported was (Lanci!) a husband who thought the Oribe texturizing spray was a home product and used it like ROOM SPRAY, spraying the couch. I cried reading that one.
It seems product misuse is an epidemic. Angie wrote that “My boyfriend thinks anything in my bathroom can be used as hair gel. After using a massive gollip of $100 face cream on his hair, he has now finally learned to ask first. His current fav is to use Victoria’s Secret lotion as hair gel because this is allowed.” LOL.
Not everyone gets to share their product stash, though… Reader Sara wrote, “I wish my boyfriend would use my products!! I got him using a men’s branded Kiehl’s face wash (was using a really harsh Clean & Clear previously) but he stubbornly refuses any other skin care products.“
Or some of you have to be forceful. Lisa wrote:”Man I wish my husband would steal some moisturizer. I’ve resorted to sneaking up on him and slapping some on his face when he looks really dry.”
LOL.This was a lot of fun. Tell me what your S/O is stealing in the comments!
