Any true cinephile should be familiar with the 2000 cult horror film American Psycho and its iconic opening scene. Christian Bale’s Patrick Bateman narrates his morning routine, which includes an icepack to reduce puffiness around the eyes, 1,000 crunches, and an herb mint facial mask. But no products with alcohol, “because alcohol dries your face out and makes you look older.”
The notorious serial killer’s skincare regimen has, at least, inspired a new line of unisex grooming products. The aptly named Bateman Skincare takes its aesthetic from the film’s stylized depiction of wealth, youth and beauty in 1980s Manhattan.
The collection features exfoliating gels, cleansers, serums, masks and toners. There’s even an axe and a chainsaw lapel pin for the inner psycho who likes to accessorize.
The brand’s mission statement?
“Bateman Skincare unisex products cannot solve the world’s problems, but they will help you with your inner self and create a safe place for you to tackle the day appropriately without needing affirmation from anyone but yourself, because you are your own best asset.”
How very “Me Decade.”
