We’ve all been there: We’re rushing around trying to get ready and our guy is saying, “C’mon! C’mon, already!” Guys have it super easy when it comes to getting dressed and looking good. They jump in and out of the shower in seconds, shave and their done. Us, well it’s a bit more complicated. 

Some of us may have men in our lives who swear that waiting around for us to put on “finishing touches” doesn’t matter. But really? Pure Silk, the shaving cream company recently conducted a survey.

They polled 100 New York men to hear what they think about their ladies’ grooming routine. Here’s the findings:

66% of Men Dislike It When Their Girlfriend Uses Their Razor. While men know it’s unsanitary to share blades, they were more worried about shaving their beard with the same tool that you used to shave your bikini line!

72% of Men Care If The Woman They Are Dating Has Prickly, Stubbly Legs. According to the poll, a little stubble is fine, but cactus-like legs are a complete turn-off. So, if a friend ever told you that guys aren’t that picky…well, they are!

When we buy shave cream, we all take the scent into consideration…but what do men think of our scented stems?

46 percent prefer fruity scents. 32 percent prefer floral scents. 22 percent prefer women to not wear fragrance.

So it looks like if we don’t use their razor and smell like fruit, we’re okay!
