RazoRock’s Essential Oil of Lime Shave Soap

I’ve had RazoRock’s Essential Oil of Lime is a soap in the soap hoard of my shave den for some time.   So long that RazoRock has gone through changes in the formula and packaging designs since I got this.  I suppose I tend to hoard soap and use (and even review) them at my own pace. 

RazoRock Essential Oil of Lime - Yea, I'm behind a couple of versions

Essential oil of Lime is described as a “fresh lime scent.”  Personally I think this is a very pleasant scent and something my wife really likes. It reminds me of lime zest rather than, say, freshly cut limes. As with the RazoRock soaps that I’ve used, the scent isn’t overpowering.  I’m aware I’ve lathered with it but not so much that it is eye watering.  I find that it washes away to a hint when rinsing my face off.  When washing my face after using an alum block, I find the scent disappears.

Loading the brush.

This version of the Essential Oil Of Lime is white in color and is very soft in texture.  From some YouTube videos and pictures of the latest version, it appears that these characteristics haven’t changed that much as many are still calling it a croap.  With this soap, I get a slick and protective lather.  As with other RazoRock soaps, it is fairly easy to build without precise measuring of water.  I don’t know about you, but some soaps that I’ve used it feels like you have to have it down to the milliliter otherwise it would be too thin or thick.

RazoRock's soaps produce a slick and protective lather.

While RazoRock has their own Essential Oil of Lime Aftershave to complement the soap, there are also a lot of lime scented aftershaves to choose from that could nicely complement the soap.   To name a few Pinaud’s Lime Sec, St. John’s West Indian Lime, and Col Conk’s Lime aftershave.  Though, I tend to reach for the Captain’s Choice Lime.

A recent SOTD

The new formulation appears to contain Shae Butter, Argan Oil, Aloe Vera, and Lanolin.  While I have not tried it I am curious to about the performance.  It sounds like this would help to hydrate and protect the skin a bit more during a shave.  In the meantime though, I’ll have to use this version … which is definitely not a bad thing.  It smells great, easy to lather, and helps to protect my skin during a shave.   What’s not to like.
A more recent version ... yea ... I need to upgrade
