@Aquaria:  DH uses only men products except for one thing: razors!  He tried mine once and said it was way better lol.  Now we buy them for the both of us.  Everything else he uses is man-tastic though.

My man loves girly body wash.  He really likes the Caress brand.  He’ll use guy stuff too, but I think he likes the girly ones better.

Yes and no. 

Yes, he generally only has products marketed for men. 

No, that’s not really a specified crusade–ie, he wouldn’t REJECT products if marketed for women and yet useful for men anyway (like razors); it’s more like he gets stuff in blue by default.

Normally yah – but when we go one a trip, he doesn’t bother packing his own shampoo and he just uses mine.

The only product that he uses that isn’t gender nuetral is an old-school style shaving kit I bought for him from an etsy shop called The Man Cave.

No. We are so picky with it being organic, unscented, etc. already that pretty much if it works and it’s useful to him, he’ll use it. They don’t tend to do “organic, unscented, FOR MANLY MEN GRRRR!!” products and I guess it’s for all the better. They don’t tend to super-girlify these products, either.

A lot of our products are in fairly gender-neutral containers that are either white, or of course green, (because organic=green of course, lol) and sometimes blue (because unscented often=blue for whatever reason).

BTW he is not the kind of guy who would avoid using a product if the container was covered in pink sparkles and it was called Femme-riffic Girlglam. He just…really doesn’t feel threatened by this sort of stuff. I’ve never seen him worry about his manliness for any reason. He seems certain he is a man 🙂

@Aquaria:  Yes he does!  He loves Dove for Men body wash and he’s always liked head and sholders (just not a shampoo and conditioner kind of guy)…and when they came out with a ‘men’ line I bought it for him and now it’s all he’ll use.  LOL.

He did fall in love with my loofah (no joke), so I bought him his own.  In green, so you know, it’s more manly Tongue Out

He loves my fruity smelling body washes and shampoo. According to him, “I like smelling pretty too.”

Nope! SO just uses whatever soap, shampoo, conditioner and/or body wash is in the shower. When he was in college, he used to buy like the Axe body wash, which was awful and terrible and I told him never again.

He uses Everyday Jack soap, body wash, and deodorant. It smells like sandalwood, and I love it.
But he uses gender-neutral everything else… face scrub, face wash, face lotion… He doesn’t use any of my products (I don’t use many “products” though)

@Aquaria:  Female products smell flouncy. I would be nauseated if he smelled like that. I use unscented myself so if he stole mine then it wouldn’t be a big deal. But a coconut smelling man? No, thanks. He used man scented stuff.

I assume my brothers do as well but I haven’t shared a bathroom with any of them in a looooooong time (and thank the lord for that).

I asked FH about this to get his own answer. He only likes to use things that are for men or unisex. He says the girly things are not his style.
