Does your boyfriend/husband/housemate steal your beauty products? Are you constantly being left with nearly-empty bottles of £20 conditioner, that you can only get from your hairdresser, because some silly sod has used it? Then there’s a genius idea launching this week that may be able to help you out…
There’s a new brand in town by the name ‘Men Are Useless’. (Bravo to the person that came up with that – we all know they are.) They offer a monthly delivery service of essential products direct to your letterbox, so there’s no more running out of shaving gel. They can choose from two packs containing everything a boy could need, including shampoo, body wash, razors and shaving gel, all from the measly price of £9.99 per month – that’s less than I spend on tampons!
|I just thought this was a cute picture!|
Ashamedly, according to the ‘Men Are Useless’ survey, 78% of men admit to ‘bathroom theft’. Asked to name their most desperate bathroom moments, one in five admitted to washing all over with conditioner, with 7% saying they’ve resorted to using washing up liquid. Washing up liquid?! They need sorting out pronto.
Here’s what Paul Johnson, Men Are Useless founder, had to say: “The idea behind Men Are Useless is very clear – we’re here to cover the boring, but important, bits of men’s lives and we’re starting with the UK’s first monthly male toiletry delivery scheme. Let’s face it – men would rather be out there catching baddies or practicing wheelies than browsing the shopping aisles. Our service will bring relief to men and women alike – great brands brought together on a monthly basis either as a way of avoiding that last minute dash to the shops or as a gift for someone useless.”

I think this is an absolute amazing idea. Having lived with my fair share of boys in my 27 years, I’d do anything to get them to stop using my beautifying products. This is a perfect pressie for the man in your life, or even just a nudge in the right direction to your pesky housemates. I know what I’m buying my cousins for their next birthday!

I received a lovely box in the post over the weekend and I have to admit that I now want to sign up to ‘Men Are Useless’ myself! The box was full of lovely manly things, a hilarious letter and postcard, sweets and even a pressie for the postman. You’re gonna have to prise some of this stuff away from my hands before the men folk get hold of it – I’m definitely keeping that shower gel! Check out the pics below…
