My sister called me metrosexual. It is because, I have more products in the bathroom than my SO. Is there something wrong with the fact that I use Egyptian Musk Body Oil, Crest White Strips Supreme, Rembrandt Intense Stain Removal and Whitening Toothpaste, Peridex Oral Rinse Cholesterol Conditioner, Tea Tree Shampoo, and goat's milk soap?

My wife only has shampoo, conditioner, raspberry soap, a blowdryer and a comb.

I am surprised you have time for the tabloids with all that product!

Most of that stuff seems to be for oral care. I don't really see what's wrong with that...?

Good for you for taking care of yourself. Your self care products do not seem excessive to me.

The only difference between your stuff and your wife's is fragrance, toothpaste, mouthwash, and white strips. Doesn't your wife use toothpaste and mouthwash? She probably wears fragrance, too--but doesn't keep it in the bathroom.

The only difference between your stuff and hers seems to be the white strips.

That hardly constitutes a metrosexual beauty care regimen.

I don't see that as excessive use of product. Some men have facial cleaner, shave cream, face lotion, fragrance, deodorant. shampoo, conditioner, gel or mouse. But that still would be in the realm of normal product use.

Maybe she just assumes mean should have 3 products: shampoo, conditioner, and soap.

If you compare your product use to a very minimalist view of what type of product men should have, but it pales in comparison to what I would define as "metrosexual"

LOL yeah she uses toothpaste and mouthwash. She also uses perfume, but not as much since I like her natural scent when she only wears deodorant and lotion. The perfume activates my allergies.
