Chances are your girlfriend has stolen a number of your sweatshirts… and your T-shirts… and probably even your boxers. In fact, nearly half of women ages 18 to 24 like to borrow their partner’s pants, according to a study of 2,000 people by fashion company, Style Compare. Two in five women had borrowed their male partner’s pants more than once over the last year. So you shouldn’t feel too bad about raiding her vanity for fine toiletries. Puffy eyes, dry skin, greasy scalp? Magical potions for these problems await you just beyond the Narnia doors that are her bathroom cabinets. So scope out the scene because she’s probably got the following stashed somewhere. Pro tip: Stay away from self-tanner—you’re sure to get caught orange-handed. Photo: Getty Images/Pixland
