You might be thinking what I was when I first took a look at Strangland's 'Stache Wax packaging; no, this product is not actually intended as a balm for taming men's mustaches. Just in time for Movember, however, this is an item created specifically to help you care for your new Stangland's Stache Wax skateboard.

Designer Sasha Barr worked with the iconic image of upper lip facial hair to serve as a visual play. Most skaters would notice the presence of such an unexpected-looking logo on the store shelf, causing them to at least take a gander at the product.

The little cubic boxes and the skateboards themselves bear the same emblems and symbols. There's a vintage twist to the parted mo' of Strangland's 'Stache Wax packaging, reinforced with old typefaces and a backing resembling a spiked badge.
