Have you slept over at your boyfriend’s house, woken up the next morning and realized that you don’t have any of your own beauty products? We've all been there. So what if we told you to look no further than his grooming arsenal for your morning routine? Yes, you'll probably still have to do the whole "finger and toothpaste thing," but you can get away with using his deodorant, face wash and shampoo.

In fact, some of his products might be even better than yours. Most men's and women's beauty products don't actually differ that much (except for the usual musky and floral scents), but sometimes the crossover from your pretty pink razor to his Gillette trimmer can make all the difference.

If you're willing to step into the boys' club, check out the men’s grooming products we love.

Degree Men Anti-Antiperspirant & Deodorant

We've sweated through enough cardigans and button-down shirts this winter to officially switch to Degree Men. It does a far better job of controlling perspiration and body odor. Plus, you'll do far fewer fewer loads of laundry. $4, Drugstore.com

Old Spice Body Wash

Whenever we work this spicy body wash into a rich lather while taking a hot shower, it instantly awakens our senses without giving us a headache like some overly floral or fruity fragrance. $4, Walmart.com

Irish Spring Soap

This classic bar soap has a crisp scent that isn't too heady, and after a rigorous scrubbing from head to toe, we always feel super clean. $3, DollarGeneral.com

Barbasol Shaving Cream

Don't let the shady, under-two-dollars price tag sway you. Not many shaving creams or gels, for men or women, come close to delivering smooth and sexy results. $2, Soap.com

American Crew Pomade

Short-haired gals will certainly appreciate this medium-hold pomade. It's super easy to mold those jagged layers then rinse out and try something new. $7, Target.com

Kiehl’s Eye Alert

Believe it or not, this guy-friendly eye cream is just as good, if not better, at getting rid of under-eye puffiness and dark circles. So get yourself some of this caffeine and cucumber extract-infused goodness. $21, Kiehls.com

Head & Shoulders for Men Shampoo

Dandruff is the WORST. And no matter how many over-the-counter or prescription shampoos we try, this drugstore staple gets all the gunk off our scalps best. $8, Walgreens.com

Redken for Men Finish Up Daily Conditioner

No matter your hair texture, it will feel and look a whole lot healthier if you make this conditioner a part of your hair care regimen. $15, Soap.com

Close shaves are hard to come by, especially when using those cheap disposable razors. Get into the art of shaving with this nifty men's razor, and you'll achieve the smooth legs you've always wanted. $13, Soap.com

Buckler’s Chapped Skin Remedy

This is the BEST cream we've used in a while, hands down. You'll get the moisture you need, without that gross, greasy feeling. $19, TheMotley.com

Nivea Aftershave Balm

nivea post shave balm

Sensitive areas, like your armpits, could use some love post-shave to prevent irritation. So instead of using your go-to body lotion, try an aftershave (especially this one with a barely-there scent). $7, Vitacost.com

Anthony Logistics Facial Scrub

anthonys logistic facial scrub

This exfoliant has some awesome perks: It tames your oily face (without those junky sulfates and petrochemicals), brightens up dull skin and prevents ingrown hairs. $36, Sephora.com
