Metro Man & Metro Home

Jack…In a Box

Every Man Jack body bars and body wash helps you get a clean start to each day. EMJ’s cedarwood body wash deep cleans to remove dirt and grime, without drying out skin. Coconut-derived surfactants and cedarwood oils cleanse and heal, essential oils of rosemary and sage refresh, and glycerin helps retain skin’s moisture.

EMJ’s hydrating shave cream raises beard to help give a close, clean shave. The post-shave face lotion, a light non-greasy formula, moisturizes and protects skin with shea butter, aloe and Vitamin E.
In addition to cedarwood, the body bars and body wash come in signature mint, tea tree, citrus scrub, spiced pepper. Body bars and body wash: $5 Shave Cream: $4. Post-Shave Lotion: $5.

Pull This Lever

Keeping skin healthy feeling and resilient can start in the shower. Unlike soap, which leaves a dry and tight feeling, Lever 2000 – Vaseline Men Skin Hydrating Body & Face Bars are specially formulated for men’s cleansing needs. It deep cleans without stripping skin’s natural building block, and the unique hydrating formula won’t dry skin like soap does. Retails for $2.75 per 2-bar pack.
For added moisture, particularly during winter months, use with Vaseline Men Body & Face lotion, $3.99.

Thermal Fusion

ThermaFuse with HeatSmart Complex, is a revolutionary new technology that does addresses two things at once: Nourishes, revives and renews hair with a blend of deep conditioning proteins, ceramides, amino acids and plant extracts. And secondly, protects hairs and prevents damage using silicone molecules which link together to stand guard against heat-styling and chemical-service damage.

HeatSmart Complex combines a silicone molecule with a wheat protein molecule. Together they stay on the hair and in the hair, penetrating to smooth any frazzled cuticle while also adding shine. 6.8 oz bottle retails for $15.

Cool Running

Perhaps the closest thing to being self-propelled, the new, improved Adidas Megabounce 2008 cushions even better, turning every impact into forward momentum.

One of the most comfortable running shoes I’ve ever worn, the Megabounce 2008 features a textile/synthetic upper with textile lining, and molded EVA insole for anatomical comfort. Adidas Bounce™ technology in the insole provides optimized energy return and step-in comfort. Retails for $114.

Heady Stuff

Short Sexy Hair Clean Slate Shampoo gently cleanses to lift pollutants and product build-up without compromising the health of hair. It also improves hair density, adds moisture to hair, and leaves scalp feeling invigorated.

Safe for everyday use and color-treated hair, the scent consists of fresh mint and orange with a touch of sandalwood. Should be used in conjunction with Short Sexy Hair Cool Factor Daily Refreshing Conditioner for maximum results. 8.5 oz bottle retails for $10.
