Metro Man & Metro Home

By PK Greenfield


I am always on the lookout for new products to hit the market as well as revisiting the best grooming, hygiene and style products for men. This month I restocked my bath with Cantu, Curve, Van der Hagen’s Shave Butter, He’s a 10, Zirh Bar Soap and Tame the Beast. They are products that all men can rely on and come within budget after all that holiday spending.


Cantu Men’s Collection Cleansing Pre-Shave Scrub. This cleansing pre-shave scrub exfoliates the skin and aids in healthy hair growth, so the hair follicle grows out of the skin easier, helping to combat ingrown hairs. I tried it and discovered a noticeable difference from shaving without the scrub. The scent also gave it high points in my choice for the daily chore of shaving our faces. This is part of Cantu’s newly launched brand of men’s grooming products.



For men with a very thick beard who need and want to clean up, I recommend Tame the Beast. They offer The Beast Box that includes various products but this month I decided to feature their Shave Cream. With black pepper, sandalwood, green tea and vitamin B, this shave cream helped to loosen up hair follicles for a clean shave while moisturizing the skin. New year. New beginning. Now’s the time to Tame the Beast.

I recently tested He’s a 10 3-in-1 Shampoo, Conditioner and Body Wash. This product came in super handy especially after running or hitting the gym. The scent is simply and masculine and washes the grime and dirt of the city away without a buildup of soap or that gunky feel. Throw a bottle in your gym bag and you will see what I mean after an extensive workout and hot shower. This is an affordable must-have.

I was a fan of Zirh when it originally came to market over a decade ago. This month I decided to check out what’s new with the men’s grooming line. For guys hitting the slopes this season, I recommend the ZIRH Body Bar to moisturize and heal your skin with this high performance cleansing body bar. Glycerin, multi-vitamins and natural ingredients help to accelerate the production of collagen and heal the skin, relieving fatigue and keeping your skin clean, fresh and smooth.

Not all guys are rugged and burly, for gents with more sensitive skin, I recommend Van der Hagen’s Shave Butter. This buttery formula doesn’t include drying agents like soap or detergent. The Shave Butter is infused with macadamia nut oil, glycerin, shea, mango, and cocoa butters to help alleviate razor burn and leave skin feeling soft and moisturized.

With actress & Grammy nominated singer/songwriter Christina Milian acting as spokesperson for the latest launch of this men’s cologne, I decided to revisit the scent. Curve is created by Liz Claiborne and it’s classified with tones of lavender, spice and mahogany. I think every guy should have a bottle in their bath or gym bag. It’s considered one of the most popular scents with young men this year.
