Watch Your Language

Juicy Couture’s Dirty English cologne for men is a intoxicating mix of peppered mandarin, blue cypress, black leather, ebony wood, and amber musk. The bottle features a leather cord adorned with charms wrapped around the stopper, which doubles as a bracelet.

While the scent is a bit strong for my taste (I prefer Dunhill or Cool Water), reactions from the fairer sex have been nothing but positive. And who am I to argue with that? One 3.4 fl oz bottle retails for $45.

Catching Whitening In a Bottle

Rembrandt’s two-hour whitening system “whitening in a flash.” The results are satisfactory, but the process is a bit tedious. Users apply the two-hour whitening formula to both upper and lower trays (included), wear for 20 minutes, remove for 10 minutes, and repeat this process for two hours. It’s worth it if you have a hot date or a job interview the next morning, but frankly, I prefer the Crest Whitening Strips system, which is less involved and delivers the same results (though not as fast).

The kit features two 3.7 ml Rembrandt Two-Hour White Syringes, and two ComfyTray Rembrandt Mouthguards. Retails for $20 – $25.

Different Strokes

For those looking to improve their game on the links, Cleveland Golf’s VP-5 putter with Dual Axis Alignment system should increase your number of birdies dramatically. Golfers are now able to see when their hands move out of position as well as detect when their eyes are not positioned properly over the ball. These are the two major contributors to pushed and pulled putts. By addressing both of these issues, the VP-5 putter increases impact consistency. The results are true roll and better distance control which leads to more putts made and lower scores.

With the Visual Performance (VP) putter, Cleveland Golf has produced a putter that will aid players by getting them into the correct address position every time. Comes in lengths of 33, 34, and 35 inches. Sells for $129 (available in right-hand only).

Pump Up the Volume

Jonathan Antin Serious Volume, Volumizing Shampoo is great for normal or oily hair. Ingredients include rosemary/sage essential water, which gently purifies – and moisturizing sugar foam, which cleans without stripping. Additionally, botanical & UV filters shield hair from damage and color fading.

While avoiding harsh detergents like sodium lauryl sulfate, Antin has created an entire line of shampoos that employ sugar surfactants to gently cleanse the hair. Although these sugar foams do not lather as highly as more chemical ingredients, they work well on thoroughly wet hair. Contains no alcohol, mineral oil, synthetic colors, DEA or MEA, and is 100% Vegan. Retails for $20.
