WATCH out, there's a bloke about – and he is ready to make off with your make-up bag.
Victoria Beckham has revealed hubby David uses her face serum, and he has previously admitted pinching her beauty products.
We can reveal he is not alone, as a quarter of men have been found to borrow their other half’s make-up and pampering kit, including face cream, foundation and even hair-removal gel.
Beauty expert Abi Oleck, of beauskinlondon.co.uk, whose clients include Lady Gaga and Jayne Torvill, said: “During lockdown, there has been an explosion of men becoming conscious of how they look, as they have had more time on their hands.
“So it’s no surprise to me that a quarter of British men pinch their partner’s beauty products.
"There is an amazing range of products and treatments that are tailored specifically for men, but of course some just like the convenience of raiding their better half’s dressing-table or make-up bag.
“Also, many women like a groomed man rather than a bit of rough, so it’s a win-win situation.
“With a lot of us having had the opportunity to take better care of ourselves lately, it’s no great surprise that some men have tried to enioy a bit of pamper time.
“So next time you think you’ve been using too much mascara or lip balm, you might not have – it could be that your other half is using it too.”
Here are the ten most popular beauty items that men use, as revealed in a new survey of 2,000 blokes . . .
