Skincare Lovers Are Reeling In Horror At This Woman's Account Of A Guy Sharing Her Products
A Twitter thread in which a woman wrote about catching a guy helping himself to her skincare products, struck horror into the hearts of many a skincare lover.
Like a champ, J. Escobedo Shepherd, deputy editor at Jezebel, encouraged said man to use her products sparingly, due to their price points.
“And he was like yeah yeah no problem, I only use a little bit,” she shared with the empathetic Twitter community (hundreds of retweets can attest to that).
It went on: “Dude was trying to get his regime right because he was about to shoot something on cam so I am like, of course, I feel you, this is what we all want, no prob, get your skin right.”
So far, so civil.
do all my skin care addicts wanna hear a thing that happened to me recently that is a NIGHTMARE and i can't stop thinking about it
But J., a self-confessed skincare addict, watched at first with patience, then with increasing panic as this stopped being a one off occasion as “dude” kept trying it...
Her patience, that is, by sampling one product after another.
and so i also notice that some other days he's smelling like drunk elephant c-serum which is also cool because i'm tryna help him at this point and i remind him it's hella expensive & he promises he's using just a little bit

and then last week in the morning he's getting ready and i see him pull out the drunk elephant c-serum and douse THREE HUGE PUMPS INTO HIS HAND
like "DOG WHAT U DOING" and he's like "i like to put it on my neck and hands" and i'm like ahhhhhhhhh and the psycho theme song is playing in my mind
And Twitter was shook with the nerve of this guy, who was evidently a symbolic figure for all the times an unsolicited somebody has audaciously used precious moisturisers, serums and what-have-you in a “meh, I’ll just slap this on...” way.
There’s nothing quite like seeing your favourite, expensive skincare finds being used like hand soap by someone who - clearly - doesn’t get it.
First world problems? Sure. But, still.
