The Doomtree cosmetics line -- inspired by Dessa's lipstick
Lazerbeak: Beard Conditioner
Perfectly groomed beards are not easily maintained. Any bearded or mustachio-ed dude out there will tell you that there's a lot that goes into keeping the look somewhere south of "mountain man" and north of "my girlfriend will never have the bathroom back." And sure, Lazerbeak can cut some pretty slick beats, but do you have any idea the kind of skill it takes to cut those whiskers? Which is where the Beak-approved Beard Conditioner comes in. Anti-itch, pro-growth, and with just a hint of the tropics -- beards have never been sexier.
We imagine that the natural Sims scent probably smells like heaven would, but since Britney already took that name, we'll stick to the simple title. Hypothetically produced by the Minneapolis-based beauty and fragrance company Thymes, Sims For Men smells like a combination of the First Avenue green room, the first whiff of a brand new bottle of whiskey, the last day of summer in Minneapolis, pine trees, and a hint of lavender.
Cecil Otter - Diamond Peel Treatment
If you had to pick one Doomtree crew member to turn into a Mattel doll, it would probably be Cecil Otter. He's so pretty. How does he do it? Obviously, as the fanciest, snappiest Doomtree kid, extravagant crushed diamonds are the answer. With the Cecil Otter-approved Diamond Peel Treatment (facial and skin rejuvenator), you too can one day hope to be as effortlessly beautiful and, yes, radiant. (You will also probably look more expensive, in general.)
