Product Shill: Xabi Alonso For Gillette Moisturizer

The question isn’t whether or not you’ll be buying Gillette moisturizer because of Mr. Xabi Alonso’s pleasant visage. The question is:  how much Gillette moisturizer will you be buying? A carton? A crate? The warehouse?

We may be hardcore SK-II/La Mer/anything-with-promises-of-magic-and-moonbeams-in-a jar beauty product users, but we will leave our brand loyalty behind for you, Xabi. (Also, we will leave behind our jobs, homes, chocolate supplies and semi-significant others. Just say the word.)

PS: the chest hair. Sweet, merciful St. Iker; the chest hair.

  1. Xabi Alonso is the face of Gillette. No wonder for a nice and handsome guy like him.

  2. rosehip oil says:

    Gillette produces the best moisturizer in the world. And Xabi Alonso's face makes the sale even larger.

  3. VS1986 says:

    Scruff or no scruff…Xabi is looking good! Especially in those jeans. :)

  4. Steph says:

    I know! I really love him with the beard! :( Eh, who am I kidding? I love him either way. It's Xabi! :P And yeah, I agree with that. He can really pull off the chest hair and it looks good on him.

  5. MrsVilla-to-be says:

    He looks gorgeous! I just think he should`t have such serious hairstyle, it should be more casual. Otherwise, he`s very handsome!

  6. Dutchess says:

    3 things wrong with this picture:

  7. fieryheart says:

    Now that the beard is gone, I kind of missed it.
    So I guess he shaved it because of this advertisement?

  8. Nora says:

    *whimpers* Oh Xabi, you make me feel tingly in my womanly parts.

    But seriously, the beard needs to come back. I have a serious beard/scruffiness kink. Why? Because I love the burn on my skin that makes me think of the guy and beard that the burn came from. Mwuahahahaha. Ooooo and if I had a Xabi clone, I think my face would be chaffed red from all the…. okay, I'm not going into NC-17 mode…

  9. jamtart heart says:

    So handsome, its should be criminal.

    Also: I can't help but wish his non-waxing habits would extend to the others on the Spanish National Team.

  10. Erin says:

    God, I miss him. He is a beautiful man.

  11. Ashlee says:

    I think it is time for him to be promoted to The Hall of Fame. There, I've gotten that off my chest and it feel sooooo good.

  12. Leni says:

    But HOW does he always do that??? Just standing there,not trying to be sexy and still be so… ALONSISH. and incredibly attractive.

  13. Jen says:

    I miss the beard….the scruffy, rough manly beard………but this also is a good look. If the product made all men like Xabi, I would rush out and buy up the whole town's supply!

  14. RealLisa says:

    Ahh classy Xabi, as perfect as always!!! Can't breath right now.. Is it normal to be that sexy?? That's crime! *dirty thinking*

  15. sarrible says:

    I feel like Xabi is taunting Liverpool with this. He's like, I'll happily take Gillette's* money…but not to play football. Neener neener, look upon my beauty and weep.

    *Yes, I know Tom Gillett doesn't own the razor company.

  16. ZaharaSpain NTBarca* says:

    i will buy! i will buy!
    anything for xabi! and damn boy, you looking good without (or with) beard!
    my god, his hotness is a bit overwhelming

  17. Eebza says:

    this man is so classy.
    oh em gee

  18. Eebza says:

    YESSSSSSSSSS exactly!!!!!

  19. Summer says:

    I think that the most beautiful and the most difficult to say in the life is to say I miss you…But like a Reds I've to agree and also say like you…I miss you Xabi, Liverpool without you couldn't be called any more Liverpool..

    • Eebza says:

      sorry ladies.
      we here at madrid are enjoying him.
      a lot ;)

      • Summer says:

        I'm happy for him because the thing the imports more is his happiness. I know that he's happy and if he's happy I will be happy…For me Xabi is one of the thing most important in my life.

  20. Summer says:

    I've seen some beautiful, funny, loving, adorable men in my life…Everyone of them had caught a part of my heart, but I wasn't happy, because they were only beautiful men without heart and they weren't for this really man. But when I was so tired because of this man, and I was tired of my life, I met a new man. His name was simply, his name was funny. I immediately understood that he was the man who I had researched. He was the man of my dream, he was beautiful, funny, and has got the HEART that I had looked for. But the thing for which I loved him, was because he has always been himself, no one, despite of everything, had changed him. He had left me and my dreams soon, but I could never found anything else like Xabi Alonso and I would never forget him… You'll we always my star Xabi, because you have taught me that in the life you will never walk alone…Marevellous!!!

  21. crispy says:

    I never realized how much Xabi looks like Jamie Bamber. And now I cannot stop picturing him in a towel.

  22. Rid Eliot-Kid says:

    Whooaa I so love reading your comments,ladies:D :D
    They always provide me with a smile or laugh:D
    And I must say the articles are very well written and have a good dose of humour and ‘awesomeness’ in ‘em :D :)

  23. Ines del Sol says:

    *staring* god he's beautiful. And this interview with Berta… *panting*

  24. <3 him since the LIVERPOOL's days. <3 him more when I found out that we celebrate our birthday at the same time. ^.^

  25. Ella says:

    He is so perfect. Really.
    That is all.

  26. alejandra says:

    Where do i sign up to be an intern at your site? i can do the spanish interviews and i am learning euskera, anything to communicate verbally with xabi!!! :P

    • sarrible says:

      I'm actually more interested in communicating non-verbally with him. Semaphore, maybe. Or sign language. Or, you know, "I put Nutella where I want you to lick it off."

      • Nora says:

        You know, I just heard Ursula from the Little Mermaid in my head:
        "You've got your looks, your pretty face, and don't under estimate the importance of BODY LANGUAGE HA!"

        mmmm I'd love to body language it up with him, and the nutella is an excellent idea ^_~

  27. lvgirl says:

    do we get a Xabi clone when we buy by the warehouse full? :)

  28. Izzy says:

    MMMMM. . . WOW JUST WOW!!!!!! His wife is one LUCKY LUCKY LUCKY times like INFINITY LUCKY GIRL!!!!!

  29. bumbleduckie says:

    Dayum… Good day, thanks to this pic, I'm going back to bed. Thanks Kickette!!! =D

  30. GracieB says:

    he is hot!!! as long as i get to rub all that moisturizer in places where hmmmmmmm! i'll let you translate that in your head.

  31. @vinivia says:

    mmm WOOOWWW. why can't all men dress as well as him? i miss the beard though. bring the beard back!!

  32. Now that is a real MAN.
    He is so hot that just by looking at him you might get an orgasm (not that i would complain)

  33. Emme says:

    I should clarify that my previous comment I only meant as a joke. Xabi looks great at the event & snaps to Kickette for featuring him (it's seriously my week – Marco, Boca, Xabi all in the span of two days!) I just want the beard back. :)

  34. jelly says:

    Oh man…soooooooo handsome…

  35. Emme says:

    This is seriously the worst product shill ever!! I do not care how smooth that moisturizer makes his porcelain skin, any product that encourages Xabi Alonso to go without his ginger beard is not okay with me :) I know I am not the only one of the Kickette army who loves Xabi's beard. First Iker, now this! Does the Gillette corp. really want to have a showdown with us? Oh & btw – I still would even though he is currently beardless. I think the only reason he was created is so I can be tortured daily.

  36. D0li says:

    I think he looks better with the beard.

  37. senora ramos says:

    ok, i miss xabeard, but damn xabi, i will buy whatever you are selling by the truckload. just….damn

  38. @mezz98 says:

    This man is hotness personified.

  39. W G says:

    The term GQMF was invented for him. *drools*

  40. Jive says:

    Well, I know I’m moist.

  41. kitty1979 says:

    Beard or no beard, I still would!

  42. hereforthenando says:

    Xabi Alonso: Making me want to give up my entire life and my dignity to move to Spain since 2009 (when he left Liverpool :( )

  43. rupster says:

    yummy yummy xabi….please stop this gillette nonsense and please please bring back ur beard….and mmmmm, dont even get me started on the chest hair!

  44. Lotte (Zlatanista) says:

    What´s with the RM players and shaving products?

    • Eebza says:

      good question.
      because although xabi looks divine here…i must say, i like me some facial hair…

    • Steph says:

      Maybe they just really wanted Iker to shave off his beard, already. :P Xabi looks good either way, but I do miss his beard!

  45. Ashlee says:

    Oh lord have mercy. *Drools*

  46. Louise says:


  47. Pique_Xavi says:

    Again! I think I will boycott gillette because the spanish men without beards isn't cool with me, lol… Even though this Xabi isn't exactly the man I drool over I have said it before, the spanish men are a treat for the eye whether or not I have my eye on. I wonder if that's why the Ramos cut his hair… are they coming out with a new product they want him to be the lead man for???

  48. @orionstorm says:

    oh man… do love him clean shaven, but he just isn't the same without the beard! hope he'll bring it back soon!

  49. Leya_S says:

    ^^ THIS!! ^^

  50. blitzenTO says:

    Oh, yummmm! I love his hairy chest, sooo sexy.

  51. sarrible says:

    Bring back the ginger beard, dammit!

  52. Alone Gourcuff says:

    What was he did not believe, he is okay read but was much more sexy with that beard, I hate Gillette, should close the door to the football! but it is still beautiful and delicious!

  53. Laura says:

    These pictures might be safe for work, but the face I am making while looking at them is definitely not normal for someone focused on the task at hand. . .

  54. blake2108 says:

    He really is "the best a man can get"
