Metro Man: Santa Grooming

Here are several of my picks this season for the Santa on your list who needs to freshen up, get smooth and groom his jolly self. Santa needs to up his game if he wants to keep Mrs. Claus equally happy at the North Pole.

“More rapid than eagles his coursers they came,
And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name:
“Now, Dasher! Now, Dancer! Now, Prancer, and Vixen!
“On, Comet! On, Cupid! On, Donner and Blitzen!”

Due to the sign of the times, most gents are either homebound or preparing for solitude — camping in the great outdoors. This is why I chose DUDE Energize Face & Body Wipes. The wipes are convenient, effective and help energize the skin anytime or anywhere. They are perfect for the hiking man who hangs out with reindeer. All of the elves approve of their hygienic formula made with 97% water and plant-based ingredients that are infused with an energizing scent plus pro-vitamin B5.

Dr. Sandra Lee, MD (SLMD) is also known as Dr. Pimple Popper from the popular TV show on Bravo. Dr. Lee offers her home product regimen for those who suffer from adult acne.  The active ingredients include Salicylic Acid that gently exfoliates the skin while removing dirt, dead skin, and oil from the pores. The spot treatment targets breakout areas while the cleansing pad assists in keeping the epidermis clean and healthy.  Clear skin and a clear night make Santa a very happy man on-the-go.

Formulated for men of color, Ceylon Skin Products offers an amazing gift set this season. The ultimate holiday bundle includes their beloved skin routine, plus their signature water bottle and limited edition candle. Grooming supplies: Facial Wash, Facial Toner, Facial Moisturizer, Cotton Pads.

Santa will not only be hydrated but also traversing the globe with a healthy glow.


Damn, Santa smells so ho ho good!

This holiday, we recommend you splurge a little and give your man in red this fine cologne from Parfum de Marly — Paris. Layton is made with top notes of apple and bergamot, the heart notes include jasmine and violet while the base notes hint on vanilla and pepper. Santa’s attractive scent will penetrate the evening sky this December 24th and will be remembered forever because Layton is equally alluring, memorable and timeless.


Even the toughest beard with the hue of snow needs to be kept trimmed and manicured. This season I chose the 6-Blade Razor System by Pacific Shaving Company. Tried, tested and true, this wet razor is perfect for sculpting the beard, especially around the neck and sideburns. The durable grip handle gave it four hooves up by our team of experts after a strenuous workout and a long day of playing reindeer games.  Keepin’ him smooth!
