I don't do facial hair or body odour. Boak. DH doesn't use hair products, but deodorant and soap are cheap.

God my dh only shaves once a week (at best!) and often wears torn jeans. But then I think he is incredibly handsome with super bone structure and gets away with it!
And I fancy him like that - I love it when it's almost a beard but not quite.

ninah Fri 01-Jul-05 16:44:26

so are deoderant and soap products, well OK no
Thought you mean gel, fancy aftershave etc
scruffy is fine, dirtly is eeeh

cupcakes Fri 01-Jul-05 16:45:15

He is clean though and does use some kind of product in his hair.

expatinscotland Fri 01-Jul-05 16:47:18

MMmm, I love aftershaves and cologne, lightly splashed. CKOne or Crave or Tommy for Him.

My dh has very little body hair, but still shaves every other day b/c he likes the clean cut look. So do I!

tarantula Fri 01-Jul-05 16:48:26

dp is clean and uses soap and deoderant and stuff but def veers towards the scruffy looking .

tarantula Fri 01-Jul-05 16:54:59

scruffy man for you all to oggle

cupcakes Fri 01-Jul-05 16:56:19

I think one of the reasons my dh is quite scruffy is that he is self employed - other than for his customers (who seem to like him whatever he wears) he has no need to dress up.

cupcakes Fri 01-Jul-05 17:00:01

this is my dh

lemonice Fri 01-Jul-05 18:52:34

By products I meant above and beyond toothpaste, soap/shower gel, shampoo, deodorant, and floss, shaving foam LOL daily showers a must

just trying to visualised how Johnnie bodenised we were or not

spidermama Fri 01-Jul-05 18:53:22

Have to say yes because of loyalty to DH.

spidermama Fri 01-Jul-05 18:54:39

Viggo Mortensen is my dream DH too Cupcake.

I have a friend who manages to look exactly like VM in LOTR yet lack the sexual charisma. It may be the hippy trousers that do it (and when I say hippy, I mean seriously hippy. Lovely LOVELY bloke, though.

spidermama Fri 01-Jul-05 19:14:44

It's the 'ripped jeans' bit that bugs me, soooooooooooooooooo eighties

cupcakes Fri 01-Jul-05 19:37:09

even if they're genuinely ripped through hard work? And have no fake faded patches

lemonice Fri 01-Jul-05 20:15:59

Jeans start new and are worn through wear not bought in,
talking real men not off the peg ones!!!
