Used for the first time tonight. The scent is described as Fresh Eucalyptus and that is as good as I could describe it. Lighter than Proraso for sure but very good. Didn't notice much cooling effect. Beware this stuff is thick. I loaded my brush like I was using AOS creams, way too much. I took so much water to turn it into lather I had enough for 5-6 passes. It was so thick it was a little hard to spread around my face. A little goes a loooong ways. And is very slick. You still feel the slick feeling rinsing between passes.

Ease of lathering: 10/10-- Using a small amount will work better.

Longevity of lather: 10/10--Very stable and thick as the dickens.

General skincare: 9/10--Very good because of the lanolin. And slick and protective. Good glide as well.

Scent: 9/10-- Lighter/fresher/cleaner than the usual Eucalyptus

Price: 9/10--$9.99 regular price

Would I buy again: 10/10--No question YES. Considering how little you need to it should last a long time.


Here is the ingredients as well

Interesting,very interesting.
Do you have Santa Maria la Novela to compare with this new soap?
Im sure that this one could perfectly compete with SMN and beat it in the price range...

I was also really impressed with how slick it was. I loaded to much on my brush too not realizing how thick it was. All in all I was very impressed with this stuff.

Sounds like a nice product. Here's hoping he comes out with a scent that won't kill my wife. Wink

Thanks for the review. I've ordered a few from the latest RazoRock offering, but passed on the S Maria, so I was interested in any reviews.

I'm not sure why the label says Cream/Soap. It's a cream for sure. However it's a very thick and sticky one as mentioned above.

I finally used my SM tonight for the first time. The first thing I noticed was the consistemcy of the cream. As others have said, it's very soft and sticky. Reminds me of that marshmallow cream that comes in a jar or chewed bubble gum that's been in the hot sun all day.

I ended up dipping the tips of my brush in the tub instead of swirling. This isn't a form of soap I've used before due to its consistency so let me know if that's how you use it as well.

As Pat said, the scent is a very light eucalyptus and fresh smelling. But as Pat also noted, the best thing about this soap is the slickness and that's the one thing I covet most in a soap. My razor (Gillette Old Type OC) slid across my face with unusual ease. SM is a step up in slickness from the RR Artisian line offerings and they're some slick soaps.

I also like the container SM comes in. More so than any other RR soap.

Joe did it again. Under the radar, he's introduced one helluva fine soap. Maybe my favorite RR soap of all and I've tried most of them.

It is a winner. My first lather I used about an almond size as I do all my creams and I had enough lather for a three pass shave of a small dog. It had very nice cushion and slickness. Very comfortable shave with zero irritation from my tradre razor which is very aggressive IMHO. Highly recomend this stuff. As stated above the container is awesome as well.

Can't lose with this stuff!

container looks very similar to the old body shop maca root shave cream.
Can anyone that has both of these compare the two containers?
