Jack Black Pit Boss antiperspirant and deodorant, $15, at boydsnyc.com
"I dig the scent because it doesn't smell like your average over-the-counter deodorant. It smells like it came from the earth—dirty, but in a good way. Think cologne but kind of grassy and vintagey. And it worked. I sweat a lot, and it kept me dry and fresh."
Pangea Organics Japanese matcha tea with acai and goji berry facial mask, $40, at Sephora, locations throughout the city, visit sephora.com
"I don't use a lot of stuff on my face because black skin is very sensitive, and mine tends to get oily. This worked pretty well. I could feel it penetrating my pores [tribe in the background: "Penetrating! Woo!"]. It left me feeling smooth and clean."
Life NK super-smooth shave cream, $20, Space NK, 99 Greene St between Prince and Spring Sts (212-941-4200, spacenk.com)
"I have black hair, which can get nappy and crinkly. So when I shave I look for something that won't irritate me or cause razor bumps. This shaving cream didn't burn and left my face feeling tingly—in a good way."
