I ordered some RazoRock XX soap this week. I don't know much about it. Has anyone tried this soap? What do you think about it?

It's a decent soap. Nice scent and a good performer. Easy to use and gets the job done.

I have 2 of the XX in the white jars with the old label. Haven't lathered them up yet but Ihave used some on the other argan oil RR soaps. The XX smells really good. Don't remember the name of the scent it was modeled after off the top of my head.

IIRC it was modeled after one of the ADP fragrances. Could be wrong.

Scent is based on AdP Colonia. XX is a weaker scent version of XXX (and X is weaker than XX). Nice soap.

That said, I received Asylum Colonia today & based on a wonderful first scent impression am very excited to give that a go!

I think you may be wrong there. The XXX is certainly modeled on the AdP Colonia (as is the Asylum SV Colonia) but the XX at least to my nose smells nothing like AdP Colonia, more like jasmine and clean floral. I have no experience with X though

Thanks for the correction. Thought I read that somewhere. 

I had all 3 a while ago and preferred XXX.

Correct, the XX is the Myrto fragrance. Very nice and I've always thought their argan oil soaps perfromed very well.

Cheers, Steve

For being cheap as chips I like them fine. Are there better soaps out there? Yes. That being said, my favorite RazoRock is the XXX.

Regarding XXX vs XX I probably flip-flop my preference depending on the day, but most of the time I prefer XX. XXX gets more press, but I find XX a little more interesting.

Thanks for that input. I'm about to use it in a few minutes. Glad to hear you prefer it to the XXX.

Actually, the XX scent is  ADP Blu Mediterraneo - mirto di panarea

Well I just tried it. I know it gets a lot of love around here but I was not impressed. Very average performance IMO. Reminds me of Cella. It's not bad but I probably won't buy it again.

I love that XX has organ oil. Unfortunately I found the scent too perfumy.

I purchased XXX soap after several positive reviews.

I used this soap several times and every time I found it disappointing.

It does not provide sufficient lubrication to my skin and dries out too quickly.

I do not understand the hype behind this soap.

I must admit that my skin usually dries out during shaving, but I consider this soap to be one of the worst in my large collection.

I hope you will have positive experience with yours.

I know many people love razorock.

PS: I found MDC to be on dry side too...

Mine has almost no scent at all. Really, almost nothing. It must have been old stock.

I just noticed from my picture that it is dated 2015 so I guess it can't be that old.  I have to blame the quality control at RazoRock.  This soap sucks.
