Share a lip balm that is neutral and has a mild fragrance.

Hair care products- Shampoos and conditioners
These two products are important and usual inhabitants of the bathrooms of both men and women.

So, don’t hesitate and share these two products with your guy to provide him with the same benefits.

Men’s perfumes are considered to be heavier and muskier. These fragrances work great for women who like their scents on the more intense side. And since, every perfume works differently (depending on your body’s chemistry), chances are it will smell different on both of you.
Face and body moisturizer
Moisturizing is a must for all as it keeps the skin hydrated and nourished and sharing it with your partner can be a great option. Opt for an oil-free variant since men generally, tend to have oilier skin. If you need extra moisture, use a sleeping mask over this.
