RazoRock – Caprician Lemon

RazoRock - Caprician Lemon

RazoRock’s Caprician Lemon isn’t some lame sickly sweet lemonade scent. It’s a wonderfully tart actual lemon aroma. It’s nice and strong when first lathered up and applied to the face, although it does fade a fair amount during the shave. Not completely by any stretch mind you, it’s still noticeable, but not strongly.

The lather was, frankly, spectacular. With just a tiny bit of water, it very easily whipped into a quite thick lather which provided more than enough lubrication as well. And it left the face feeling nice and refreshed / moisturized. All in all, one of the best shaves I’ve had.

  • 9/10 Scent Pleasantness
  • 8/10 Scent Strength
  • 10/10 Lather Quality

A tub of the Caprician Lemon is available for $10.99, for what is labelled as 125 mL… although frankly, I don’t think that makes much sense to me. I mean, the tub contains a square block of soap that’s obviously been cut off of a larger block. It seems to me that measurement by weight would make more sense in this instance than a measurement by volume. Oh well.

Anyways, I’m giving it a 9/10. It’s a very very good shave, smells nice, and is rather affordable. Definitely a damned good bang-for-your-buck.

Ingredients: Stearic Acid, Tallow, Water, Cocos Nucifera, Potassium Hydroxide, Sodium Hydroxide, Fragrance (Lemon), Potassium Carbonate

    Is that a plastic slant in the picture? If so, where can I get one?

    • That would be the vintage bakelite slant of which Italian Barber had obtained a case of new old stock… unfortunately, they sold out just after the new year.

      I’d suggest watching reddit.com/r/shave_bazaar, or Badger and Blade’s “Shave Mall” section.

      But yeah, highly recommended if you’re able to find one. I greatly prefer it to the 37C.

  2. Are Razo’s soap formulations similar in parts and proportions like a repertory company or are they each a new invention?

  3. Tried it, but had a burning sensation when I shaved. Shame because it was a nice thick lather. Ended up giving to a friend and luckily was able to purchase a couple other RazoRock products that didn’t cause any irritation.

  4. I love reading such reviews, the full list of product ingredients would do it even more enjoyable. Please keep it up. Thanks.

  5. Must get round to trying some of the gear from the very reputable Razorock and I don’t currently have a ‘lemon’ scented cream/soap for use on my discerning customers!
    Good, clear and concise review. Thanks!
