Metro Man & Metro Home

Billy Jealousy’s cosmeceuticals feature an impressive line of products for the face, hair and body. Liquid Sand Exfoliating Facial Cleanser ($24) cleans thoroughly to remove dead surface skin cells, dirt and related grime. It’s the best exfoliating products I’ve experienced, but a bit harsher than most. It is recommended for every other day use, but I’d suggest using it every third day to avoid over-abrasion. Use Bar None face cleanser and Sucker Punch face scrub for everyday use ($18 each).

Other products in the line include White Knight Gentle Daily Facial Cleanser ($20), which gently cleans without stripping skin of its essential oils. Hydroplane Super Slick Shave Cream ($20), named Esquire magazine’s best shaving cream, protects against razor burn, nicks, bumps and ingrown hairs. About Face Anti-Aging Serum ($48) is great for combating wrinkles, fine lines and discoloration. Wipe Out eye cream ($34) features licorice extract to alleviate dark circles under the eyes. Combination Code face moisturizer ($26) hydrates, smoothes and softens.

Hair Raiser Follicle Revitalizer ($75) helps increase thickness, strength and vigor, supplying hair follicles with essential nutrients. Fuzzy Logic strengthening shampoo and Cashmere Coat conditioner ($22 each) restore essential hydration to hair. For styling, try Cool Medium hair gel ($16), a lightweight medium-hold gel with a subtle grapefruit scent. Likewise, Lunatic Fringe hair pomade ($16) provides excellent control, manageability an anti-frizz benefits.

For the body, Bill Jealousy offers two body wash products, Ocean Front and Illicit (both $18). Additionally, Golden Gloves therapeutic hand cream ($28) absorbs quickly to protect, nourish and moisture dry mitts. The most interesting offering is the Six Pack Slimming Solution ($40), which is to “ensure that your silhouette looks chiseled and not chunky.” Results can usually be seen after 1 to 2 weeks of daily application.

Finally, there is Illicit Ea De Parfum ($65), with citrus bergamot base notes, middle notes of ivy and ginger, and tea and sandalwood top notes for a subtle, masculine scent. Billy Jealousy donates a portion of all sales to various organizations that support the arts, the environment, and human needs.
