Yes. It’s widely known how much I love Tom Ford. His clothing for men and women is flawless, as is his beauty line for women. Oh, and his sunglasses? Yeah, I admit to swooning over the pair I own.
But can we sit down and talk about Tom’s campaign for his new skincare and “grooming” line for men? It WREAKS of American Psycho’s Patrick Bateman.
“In the morning if my face is a little puffy, I’ll put on an ice pack while doing my stomach crunches. I can do a thousand now.
After I remove the ice pack, I use a Deep Pore Cleanser Lotion. In the shower I use a water activated gel cleanser, then a honey almond body scrub, and on the face an exfoliating gel scrub.

Then I apply an herb mint facial mask which I leave on for ten minutes while I prepare the rest of my routine. I always use an aftershave lotion with little or alcohol, because alcohol dries your face out, and makes you look older.
Then moisturiser, then an anti-ageing eye balm, followed by a final moisturizing protective lotion.”
Okay, then. So Mr. Ford’s exclusive collection of men’s fancy skincare is available only at Neiman Marcus. I have a feeling my SilverFox husband wouldn’t be all that thrilled with a $25 lip balm, let alone a $150 Skin Revitalizing Concentrate.
Silly Tom Ford! Doesn’t he realize that WOMEN are the ones society expects to stay young and beautiful forever? WE spend the money on this stuff–and our husbands simply “borrow” it from time to time.
