Lab Series, Anthony, Moroccan Elixer and Lyon’s Legacy Empire cologne make the cut.

#4: From bitter cold nights to mild day, the weather yo-yo takes an effect on men’s skin, hair and grooming regimen. This month I take on the off-kilter elements with a list of must-have items.

Chaffed skin and razor bumps begone with Anthony Pre-shave Conditioning Beard Oil. Men’s beards grow stronger in the colder months and this product helps tame the beast when it’s time to groom and get rid of the facial hair. Rosemary and basil oils nourish and soften hair follicles while calendula and vitamin E condition the skin. Users and people we kiss will enjoy the light citrus scent.

#3: Lab Series Skincare for Men (Pro – LS) has a product called Treat. It’s an all-in-one face hydrating gel. This gel hydrator instantly draws in, retains and locks in moisture to maintain hydration levels while also calming and soothing the skin with an immediate cooling sensation. Oil-absorbing powder instantly eliminates surface shine leaving skin looking healthy with a shine-free finish.

#2: Another chosen oil this month is Moroccan Elixir “Him”. This product is made with Argan oil — considered the liquid gold of Morocco. For centuries the Berber people of Morocco have used the golden oil for beauty, health and culinary purposes. This specific oil comes from the fruit of the Argan tree and is extracted by traditional methods — goats climb up the trees, eats the fruit and discard the seeds. The seeds are then pressed into oil. Guys would love this fact. This body oil has an earthy fragrance made with sandalwood, bergamot, and frankincense.

#1: The recently launched fragrance Lyon’s Legacy Empire is inspired by the epic success of the Fox TV show, “Empire.” A line of colognes and perfumes are brought to market by Simon James London and its subsidiary Empire Beauty Group. Lyon’s Legacy scent is woody and citrus with hints of amber. I had the pleasure of meeting actor Jussie Smollett from the TV series. At first I did not let him know that I was testing the cologne. Upon leaving, he turned to me and said, “Are you wearing Lyon’s Legacy?” He realized from my expression that I’m a fan of both.
