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.
