Would You Try This “American Psycho”-Inspired Skincare Line?

"In the morning, if my face is a little puffy, I'll put on an ice pack while doing stomach crunches."

When he wasn’t slaughtering victims on a murderous rampage, American Psycho’s Patrick Bateman spent much of his time cultivating his striking good looks. So it’s no wonder that a new skincare line is taking its aesthetic cues—and its name—from the cult-classic character.

Close your eyes, clear your head, shed your skin… It is more simple than you think. Be gentle with yourself.

Inspired by Christian Bale’s monologue that details his character’s obsessive beauty routine, Bateman Skincare has developed a whole line of unisex products designed to keep you looking as youthful as the seductive psycho himself.

Featuring exfoliating gels, hyaluronic serums, masks and toners, the brand uses images and quotes from the film to help market its products.

“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,” the brand’s website reads.
