SOTD: Razorock The Dead Sea

I bought this set, as well as some other shaving gear during a short vacation in Viareggio, Tuscany. It has been a long time since I’ve last used a Razorock product (mainly Zi Peppino, bought in NYC in 2013… sweet memories 🙂). The Dead Sea comes in a large glass jar and the look of the label is quite fascinating. The formula includes Dead Sea salt, lanolin and aloe vera. The scent is a complex and cleverly done blend of lemon, rosemary, cannabis, saffron and sandalwood.

I used my Vulcano badger brush and my loved 5/8 Jaguar straight razor. Two passes and a perfect shave with no irritation, nicks or cuts.

The matching aftershave was a great ending to a great shave! Regarding the scent, while the soap, when lathered, is mainly citrusy with hints of rosemary and sandalwood emerging from time to time, the AS is a bit different, with the sandalwood as the main character. It reminded me of Geo F. Trumper’s Sandalwood, which is their signature scent: while I don’t like Trumper’s rendition (way too strong for my taste, and “old-smelling”), The Dead Sea smells nicer and not overpowering; my beloved one also liked it very much (something which should always been taken into account 🤣).

The glass jar contains 200ml of cream which will last for months, and the price of 19,90€ is a good one for such a quality product. The AS cost is 15€.
