A big tub of coconut oil or olive oil can be used for pretty much everything. Moisturising, removing make-up, and in place of your usual shaving foam for a closer shave. It will look after your blades, too.
Find a fresh neutral scent that you’re both happy with and stick to one can of deodorant for both of you. Again, men’s deodorant is usually cheaper but see what deals are around.
Skip the moisturiser and primer and share fragrance-free aftershave balm instead, to cut down on your morning routine. It softens the skin and keeps it shine-free as well as calming the skin post-shave.
A good quality moisturiser is an essential part of a daily grooming routine. Buy a big tub of fragrance-free, sensitive moisturiser and share it with everyone.
