Save space in your bath­room cab­i­net with uni­sex prod­ucts you’ll be fight­ing over

JUST LIKE SHIRTS AND FRIES, we all know that fra­grance is bet­ter when it has been stolen from your boyfriend/ hus­band/brother. And beauty com­pa­nies are aware of this fact too, as they are busy amp­ing up their uni­sex of­fer­ings to in­clude a bunch of new prod­ucts – so you won’t have to sneak around steal­ing his any­more. Here are a few of our faves. 1 Calvin Klein CK One eau de toi­lette, $69 for 100ml (1800 812 663). The trail­blazer for uni­sex, the orig­i­nal CK One is a clas­sic, with its fresh, slightly cit­rusy scent that smells dis­tinctly like the 1990s. 2 R+Co Mo­tor­cy­cle Flex­i­ble Gel, $41 (1300 725 122). Yep, gel is back, but it doesn’t bring the old crunchy tex­ture with it. It’s got all the hold of a gel, but with the flex­i­bil­ity of a wax. 3 Robert Pigeut L’In­som­nuit, $299 for 100ml (Agencede­par­fum.com.au). A sexy com­bi­na­tion of woody smells with hints of flow­ers and resins. 4 Verso Lip Serum, $94 (Mecca.com.au). This gem is an anti-age­ing king, with retinol to in­crease col­la­gen pro­duc­tion and hyaluronic acid for plump­ing the lips. 5 Kiehl’s Ul­tra Fa­cial Cleanser, $30 (Kiehls.com.au). Kiehl’s iconic pH-bal­anced cleanser cleans away dirt and oil, with­out the tight strip­ping feel­ing. 6 Ae­sop Re­demp­tion Body Scrub, $39 (Ae­sop.com/au). The combo of es­sen­tial oils and finely milled pumice and bam­boo stems means you can ex­fo­li­ate away all the dull, dead skin cells – and smell good do­ing it. 7 By Kil­ian Black Phan­tom, $531 for 50ml (Agencede­par­fum.com.au). The French per­fumer is the mas­ter of fra­grance sto­ry­telling, and here he wanted to cre­ate the smell of a ghostly pi­rate ship. In case you were won­der­ing, that smells like a heady blend of rum and cof­fee with hints of san­dal­wood.

BAT­TLE OF THE SEXES There’s no need for a di­vid­ing line in your bath­room cab­i­net with th­ese uni­sex prod­ucts.
