Drag Race UK Brit Crew’s Matt Lister unwraps his presents in Christmas edition of ‘Sleigh or Nay’

In partnership with Kiehl's Since 1851.

The glitter is out, Mariah Carey’s ‘All I Want For Christmas’ is ruling the airwaves once more, and ’tis officially the season for giving and receiving (minds out of the gutter, please).

As you begin to decide how you want your stocking filled this Christmas, what better way to get inspired than by watching Drag Race UK Brit Crew member and Attitude fitness columnist Matt Lister unwrap some of the most fabulous Yuletide gifts (as well as a few festive flops) in a special edition of ‘Slay of Nay’ – or, more appropriately, ‘Sleigh or Nay’. 

We’ve put Matt’s Christmas gift taste to the test with offerings including personalised pants, a subscription to Attitude, the best grooming and skincare products from Kiehl’s, and even a pair of Christmas pudding nipple tassels (because why not).

Signalling his approval or disapproval with a ‘Sleigh’ or ‘Nay’ – “a jockstrap for Christmas? Oh hole-y night!” – Matt decides which products he’d prefer to find under the tree this year. And as you might expect from the beautifully-beared Brit Crew member, personal grooming products rank high on the list.

“Oh this a good one… who doesn’t love a bit of Kiehl’s”, explains Matt as he opens a bottle of Kiehl’s Nourishing Beard Grooming Oil.

“Anyone with a beard needs to look after their face – it gets really dry, especially in the winter. And then if you’re going hot, cold, hot, cold, in all the air-con, you come outside, you’ve got the heating on at home…

“Beard oil is a ‘sleigh’, and I’m keeping it!”

Another gift that gets a ‘Sleigh’ is Kiehl’s Calendula Serum Infused Water Cream – because nobody wants a greasy moisturiser that leaves you looking shinier than Christmas wrapping paper come Christmas morning.

“Fab present”, says Matt, before stumbling on another added benefit: “Everything from Kiehl’s smells really good!

“Kiehl’s is always a hard ‘sleigh’ for me.”
