Birchbox Breakdown

If you’re an old-fashioned kind of guy, you like a quality shoe shine, crisp pocket handkerchiefs, and a traditional straight razor shave. When a jam-packed appointment book doesn’t allow for cut-throat whisker removal, we suggest this concentrated, creamy soap, which brings to mind classic barber shops (especially the Italian variety) with its tingly sensation and old-school packaging.

How it Works

The Refreshing and Toning formula uses eucalyptus oil to tone and purify skin, plus menthol to deliver a tingly kick. Naturally healing shea butter in the Moisturizing, Nourishing formula helps hydrate dry skin and soften coarse beards, while sandalwood oil calms red, irritated skin.

How to Use

If you have normal skin and facial hair, try the Refreshing and Toning formula. For dry skin and/or thick hair, we suggest the Moisturizing and Nourishing version. In both cases, mix cream with a bit of water and apply a layer to a warm and wet face using a shaving brush or your fingers. You'll be amazed at the difference it makes in achieving a smooth, close shave.

Shave Pro, with Proraso

After being a long time electric user, and fed up with stubbly shaves and rashy skin I decided to give an old fashion razor a go when I received this in my box. But waited awhile till I got a hold of an old-style safety razor, no modern Gillette cartridge will do for me. I am going to admit that after this tube is done it will be nearly impossible to go back to electric. The eucalyptus is soothing and I have noticably less, or no rashed skin whatsoever, and left with a refreshed tingly sensation.

Not bad from a guy whom usually uses an electric shaver

I tend to use an electric shaver, but when this came in the box I decided to go back to a razer. The sent is nice, and it really allows for a nice moisturizing shave.

Great clean shave
Sampled

I already had a badger hair brush, I used a very small amount of this shave cream in a cup, lathered it up, and was immediately impressed by the "Clean" scent. I smelled like a 1950's barber shop. The second thing I noticed was the tingly feeling on my skin. A little goes a long way, I was able to shave my face and head with about a "quarter-sized" amount.

closest shave

This product left my face silky smooth and had a very fresh feeling on my skin. The shave was one of the closest I have ever had!

Lacked moisture & foam.

This product reminded me of shaving using only soap. It left my skin dry and unprotected. It lacked a consistent or full lather that industry leading shave gels & creams provide.

Great shaving cream

This stuff just smells Old School. Like Al Capone and Frank Sinatra would have used. The cream has a silky texture. A small amount covers your face with enough left on the brush for another coating. It's now regular in my shaving gear.

Proraso Shaving Cream
Purchased

I loved it! So good on my skin and great feel after the shave! They say you need a barbers brush but I just apply a small amount on my hands and lather!

Great shaving cream

This opened my eyes to shaving cream that is better than what I used to buy at the grocery store. Easy on the skin and refreshing (with the menthol, I think), I doubt I'll buy the cheap stuff again.

Great product!
Purchased

This cream is amazing. Brings back memories of old-time barber shops. My shave felt closer and I really didn't notice much irritation with this product. I will definitely be purchasing this over and over.

Only Birchbox Sample I've Ever Thrown Out

I really enjoyed the texture and the feel of this shaving cream. It was creamy and soapy and I was expecting a really nice shave, and, in fact, after sliding the razor all over my face, I was smooth and shorn. The problem with this shaving cream is that it has a truly awful smell, something like black licorice mixed with olives. I had to scour it from my face after I was done.

Pros: Good shave.
Con: Smells like a ham roasting in the July sun.
