His Top Grooming Go-To’s By Janene Mascarella

Acclaimed actor and philanthropist, Phillip Keene, is best known as “Buzz Watson,” the tech-savvy member of LAPD’s exclusive squad on TNT’s hit drama franchise “The Closer” and spin-off “Major Crimes.”  Here, the handsome TV star tells BELLA how he cleans up…

SPRTIZ “My favorite fragrance is Terre by Hermès. No matter the season, it always works for me. I get compliments from both men and women when I wear it, so why not?”



“I have been using Vivid MD skincare for a few years now. I love their Satin Cleanser with vitamin C and chamomile. I use it for shaving instead of traditional shaving cream. I also use plain old baking soda as a face scrub too. It cleans really well and leaves my skin feeling great!”

Terre d’Hermès Eau de Toilette $86-$165,

STYLE “I am always trying new stuff for my hair. Currently what’s working for this inbetween hair length is Moroccan Texture Paste by Mister Pompadour. You can use it with wet or dry hair, and it has a semi matte finish. Plus, it washes right out. On that note, if you can get away with it, don’t wash your hair every day.”

BEFORE HE WAS FAMOUS… Keene once worked as a Pan American World Airways flight attendant, at a modeling agency, at the local gym, as a travel agent, and even as a makeup artist. He attended UCLA and double majored in history and art history, and took acting classes on the side. It was only by chance that a friend of his, who worked in the entertainment industry, set him up with his role on “The Closer.” The rest is history!
