Some boyfriends don’t understand just how expensive skincare can be. This boyfriend was one of them. u/pinkyblinderz posted this thread on Reddit’s
r/AmITheA**hole subreddit to discuss her significant other’s continual usage of her products.
To clarify: this is not merely recreational skincare. u/pinkyblinderz goes into detail about how after her boyfriend used all of her $220 face wash (which was supposed to be used specifically for her eczema), she had a flare-up that resulted in her being hospitalized. So this is not a joke, people. u/pinkyblinderz needs those pricey products.
When the Redditor took inventory of just how much her boyfriend had taken from her, she estimated that he used about $800 worth of products over the course of three months. After repeatedly asking him to stop, she took matters into her own hands and bought a safe to lock away her valuables under the sink. Her boyfriend found out, of course, and felt betrayed. The real betrayal here, however, is his refusal to take her skin condition seriously. What might appear to be luxury items to him are actually necessary items for her health and wellbeing.
