Metro Man: Top 6 Must-Haves this October

Following are this month’s leading products and must-have items for men who take grooming, hygiene and their appearance very seriously to look and be at the top of their game.


#6: Dove Men+Care — Our grandparents thought Dove products where strictly made for women. Today we know better. Their line of Dove products for men are fresh, effective and help men clean-up and maintain a healthy appearance. For this month I chose the Aqua Impact with ocean minerals, it’s a body and face wash. Pack a bottle in your gym bag for the shower after your workout. It helps fight skin dryness and rinses off quickly leaving the skin nourished and smooth. Aqua Impact gained points for its invigorating, clean and masculine scent.

#5: I recently discovered Adult Male Human (AMH). AMH puts out an impressive line of skin and hair products. I recently tested their nourishing oil for face and beard. It helps moisturize the skin without a greasy residue. I particularly like the way it makes my beard shine. You can also use this on your scalp and hair for a healthy mane and to eliminate flakiness.

#4: Plaque HD is something new to help with oral hygiene. This toothpaste actually identifies plaque on your teeth. You use it in your daily routine while the Targetol Technology behind the product will turn parts of your smile green to let you know where the plaque exists. You then are able to focus on those areas to remove it with your brush or dental pick. The greenness rinses away. This product has helped me smile wider and more often.

#3: Get Ready (cause here I come) by Skinphonic allows you to rejuvenate your skin in just 28 days. I tested it and noticed a difference within the first 10 days. It is important to keep the regimen on a daily basis. The kit comes with 3 specific products: Twice Daily Cleanser, AM Hydration, PM Treatment Complex. The first is self explanatory, a bean-size amount of the AM Hydration moisturizes and gives the skin a healthy glow, the PM Treatment Complex helps to restore radiance.

#2: Even though we leave summer behind and forge into fall, men still need to protect our eyes and wear shades when outdoors. I’m lovin’ the eyewear styles by Classic Specs. This autumn I feature their Canton Whiskey Crystal Sunglasses (you can order them with your prescription if you choose to do so). The colors and design are nothing short of brilliant. They truly are classic and the Canton is suited for oval and round face shapes. If you have a different shape than that, go to their website and learn more about the styles that look best on your mug.

#1: I knew that my choice of footwear this season was spot on when I slipped on my terracotta-orange hue Dansko shoes and rushed out the door for a meeting. As I bolted down 32nd Street, a fitness trainer was standing outside of the New York Sports Club. He calls to me, “Hey brother, awesome shoes!” I laughed and thanked him as I trotted down the block. The color, style and comfortable fit are the trifecta of footwear this fall. Dansko is at the top of my must-have list this month. Check out their website and you’ll understand why.
