Valentine's Day is the perfect excuse to buy these beauty products for your boo — or yourself

Yahoo Lifestyle

Moving in with a significant other should be fun, unless it means having to give up coveted shelf space in the bathroom to make room for the S.O.’s stuff. The bevy of grooming and beauty products can feel overwhelming, especially in tight spaces, but there is a simple solution: sharing.

Unisex and multipurpose beauty products have become increasingly popular over the last few years, so couples can double up on cosmetics that fit each one’s their needs — and their budget. Jumbo products are cost-efficient than their regular-size versions, and having a second person using the product will make sure it’s good until the last drop.

Couples with similar hair textures and cuts, or skin conditions and complexions will also benefit from sharing beauty products, and with Valentine’s Day coming up, it’s the perfect excuse to treat each other.

Here are 10 beauty and grooming products that perform so well, neither person will care if it’s tailored toward men or women.
