Shaving With The Sport Of Kings

Today we shave with the Sport Of Kings or Polo Sport Blue as some refer to it. I have been told this is extremely close to spot on to the original and you can give thanks to the help of our testers for that.

The history of this one for Wet The Face goes back a few years to when this product had a green label and yes this was my mistake. I've been known to make mistakes from time to time but this was a big one. People were confused as to its green label when released because it did give the impression that this was Polo Green so yes confusion all around. I was only trying to make a green field of grass but that sure did backfire on me. After the batch was gone I redesigned the label and everything fell into place.

Shaving With The Perfect Cup

If I had to pick one of the hardest soaps to make that I sell it would have to be The Perfect Cup. From the moment I thought about doing it I had no idea just how difficult this would be. Finding a way to substitute the water used in soap making for coffee took many trials and errors. I could have just used a scented coffee oil but every artisan was doing that so I wanted mine to be different I wanted it to be the real deal.

Getting to the point of making a product like this took months first I had to find the right coffee to use. South Down in Huntington was a little coffee shop that roasted its own beans. Southdown Coffee's story began in 2014 when Mark Boccard brought his passion for specialty coffee to cafes across Long Island, earning national recognition for expert-level coffee roasting at the 2019 US Coffee Roasters Championship and being mentioned in Food & Wine among the Best Coffee Shops in America. So I knew I was in the right place when I picked a bag of his SALVADOR GUZMAN – HONDURAS for our first coffee shaving soap.

It's Time For Frozen Lemon Ice

I think it is time to break out some of the summer shaving soaps since we had a few very hot and warm days here on Long Island. The one that I reached for is one of my favorites called Frozen Lemon Ice it's a mentholated tart lemon scent that will surely put a smile on your face.

I just love the scent of lemons and you know how much I love menthol this combination is killer for me and once you open the tub BAM tart lemons all around and it just keeps getting stronger.

Once you start to apply you'll notice how rich and creamy the lather is and then the surprise of the menthol will kick in and to me, it's just heaven.
