I used this A/S "wax" for the first time yesterday with RazoRock Mudder Focker. My shave was superb. No nicks and zero irritation. I have normally oily skin and the A/S wax was a perfect match. It contains eucalyptus and tea tree EOs. It does have a lite medicinal smell because of this. Since I normally use an A/S splash other than Nivea balm I don't have anything to compare it to. I do like GFT lime skin food and for me this worked twice as well. It left my easily irritated neck feeling slightly cool, calm, smooth, and moisturized. My neck didn't notice I shaved! I was very impressed to say the least. Of course, as with anything I really like/works well for me, SWMBO said it "smells funny." Love me anyway baby, this stuff just earned a solid spot in my rotation. The jar is very small (60 ml / 2 fl oz) but 2-3 dabs covered my entire neck with some to spare on the rest of my face. Is anyone else as pleased with this as I am?

Thanks for the thorough review. I've been interested in trying the AS Wax. Even had it in my cart on last order, but pulled it out at last minute.

AS Products affect my face and neck the most in whether there is irritation and redness, or more preferred, soothing and healing, so I'm often more hesitant to try them than say soaps or creams.

Well I have to admit that I was hesitant to give this stuff a try. Mainly do to being labeled a wax. The price is very attractive. Like all Razorock products it seems priced too good to be true. I am learning quickly that they are usually very fine products.

This one was made just for me ! It has a lite scent, a little bit goes a looooooong way, It comes in a great little travel kit friendly container, The scent fades quickly, And the skincare is as good as anything I have tried and better than most I have tried. I even skipped my alum the past two days (I do not skip my alum lightly) and my neck feels great !

Great review of an interesting product. The more I read and hear about the product, it is a product I want to purchase.

I recently started using the "Wax" as well (regular version). Not wax in the sense of the word at all....more like a thick balm. A little goes a long way, you just need a few small dabs to cover the shaved area. It feels great on the skin, absorbs well (non greasy/ non sticky) and does a great job in the razor burn/ protection department. I am finding it to be a great asset for these cold, dry winter days.

I have used all of them, 888, KL and Original. they all work wonderfully, but none of the scents were ones i was blown away with.

to my nose:
the 888 was too medicinal (tea tree oil scent is very prevelant in this one)
the KL was too Grapey (like grape cough syrup)
the original was too patchouli (I was hoping for Barbershop, classic scent)

the one i am anxiously awaiting on seeing hit the market is the LIME that joseph has said is very close to hitting the store.

I'm waiting for WCS to restock on the ones without Tea Tree. Looks like a nice balm.

I should have added my standard disclaimer about not liking strong scents. This one is indeed quite medicinal but not unpleasant by any means. And on me it faded quite quickly as I expect an aftershave to do.

I like what it does for my skin !

I use the King Louis Lavender scent frequently. I agree, a great product.

I got some RR Lavender wax for Christmas and love it. I originally was steamed at how small the tin was but like the OP said, I literally just dab 2 fingers in and that's plenty.

My wife smelled the tin and thought it smelled like Desitin. Hmm has anyone ever used Desitin for razorburn.....?

It will work! Some diaper rashes are much worse and it takes care of it quickly. The scent however... Do you really want to have a baby butt smooth shave and smell like a baby butt? Biggrin

I don't speak Italian, so I am not 100% sure, but I'm confident that one of the uses listed on my tube of PREP is for diaper rash.

I have the original RazoRock Aftershave Wax and think it is a superb product. The smallest amount goes a very long way so don't be disappointed at the small jar. That small jar should last a very long time.

I have used both the original and the King Louis and both are great at finishing off either a smooth shave or a rough shave. It is a cream which has a very thick feel but it absorbs readily and does not leave a residue on the skin. The scents are enjoyable for me, but the original scent did take a few applications before I came around to it. I am definitely glad I didn't give up on as it is one of my favorites.
