When it comes to taking care of yourself, there are so many options to consider. From shaving your legs to priming your face, the decision on what to buy becomes harder than a math problem. Sure, there are some great products in the women’s section at Target, but have you noticed the best options might be in the other aisle? More specifically, the men’s aisle?
A lot of people feel the need to stick to their own sections when trying to find the right product for them. If it’s a women’s brand for shaving, that brand would know what’s best for us, right? Well, here’s the thing. There are a ton of options in the men’s aisle that are better and cheaper options to some of the brands we are used to. So get out your shopping list, because here are a few things to add:
- Nivea Men’s Sensitive Post Shave Balm ($7 Ulta)
I had to mention it. The rave started a couple months ago about using this as a primer for your make-up. For only $7, you get soothing hydration, moisture for days, and a great primer (all in one!).
- Gillette Fusion Men’s Razor ($10 Target)
Let’s face it: buying razors is such a pain. These razors are made for the hard stubble that covers men’s faces and gives them a smooth, younger look after use. When using them for shaving your legs, you can get away with not shaving for at least two days and have the silky legs everyone wants.
- PanOxyl Acne Treatment ($9 Walmart)
Forget the $17 Clinique facial washes that run out after a month’s use. This acne treatment will not only clear your skin, but leave with you with that “baby-bottom smooth” face that makes you forget you wore make up that day.
You can’t go wrong trying the other section. We’re all humans, right? As long as you stick to your skin-type, there’s no hurt in trying. Not only are these cheaper options, but you could get to get away with packing less to stay over your significant other’s place by maybe using their stuff. And let’s be honest, who doesn’t love having more room in their bag for make-up?
Peep the cute cover photo, it’s adorable. Let me know if you’ve tried any of these and what you thought!
