We already knew New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz kills it in a well-tailored suit, but it turns out he tackles grooming with equal precision. (So much so that he's just been tapped as a spokesman for Gillette.) Here, Cruz reveals his shave strategy, go-to scent, and the splurge he shares in common with your girlfriend.
"I see a barber every Thursday. It's almost like a religion for me. His name is Lenny, and he cuts hair locally where I grew up. He's not even a barber anymore to me, he's just a longtime friend. If I didn't see him my whole weekend wouldn't feel right."
"I use a medicated face wash and moisturizer from my dermatologist. If I didn't use moisturizer I feel like my whole face would crack and bleed."
"I'm one and done, going through it the first time with precision. I just use shaving cream and the Gillette Fusion Proglide Razor. I have a lot of hair on my cheeks, so I make sure that's all even, then shave down the sides of my neck to make sure everything's cleaned up."
"I'm a bar soap kind of guy. I've been using Dove bar soap for as long as I can remember."
"Either Tom Ford or Creed, something that smells nice before I head out."
"Every three weeks or so I get a manicure and pedicure, and every other week I get a massage. You have to do those little things to keep your body in shape. In the long run it pays off."
"Carry deodorant on you always. It doesn't matter if it has a scent as long as it keeps you dry. You don't always know what you're going to do when you leave the gym." Cruz's choice: Gillette Clear Gel.
