5 Products That Are Strong Enough for a Man—but Made for a Woman

Some products marketed to the fairer sex are worth swiping for yourself. Here are five we know you'll love.

ILIA Lip Exfoliator (pictured at top)
When your lips are too chapped for regular balm to fix, try this clear exfoliator made with beeswax, shea butter, sunflower-seed oil, and scrubby granules of volcanic-stone powder. Just apply and wipe away with a tissue. $24;

Add this blend of neroli and jasmine to spicier scents for a note of floral complexity. As a bonus, the minimalist bottle will look handsome (not girly) on your sink counter. $220;

moroccan_oil.jpgMoroccanoil Treatment
The principal ingredient in this hair serum is argan oil, an extract from a Moroccan tree that is prized for its moisturizing properties. Rub in a dollop and see poofy flyaway locks turn sleek, soft, and manageable. $44;

Late night? Try these cotton sheets soaked in a yeast extract with unique antiaging properties (discovered in a Japanese sake brewery where workers had unusually supple hands). They moisturize and imbue your skin with a wakeful glow in just 20 minutes. $90 for six sheets;

la_mer_lotion.jpgLa Mer Reparative Body Lotion
From the brand behind the coveted Crème de La Mer face cream, this product delivers the same ocean-derived antiaging ingredients in quick-drying form. It's almost completely weightless, leaving behind only a pleasing hydrated feeling that lasts the entire day. $150;
