C.O. BIGELOW

Birchbox Breakdown

If you want something done right, you turn to the best, so when C.O. Bigelow sought out a best-in-class shave cream, it’s no surprise that they landed on PRORASO. This standout cream is based on the Italian brand’s time-honored formula, producing a cool, creamy lather that softens hair and protects skin for a superbly close shave, without complications.

How it Works

Coconut oil and glycerin create a smooth, hydrating lather that shields skin from razor blades. A blend of menthol and eucalyptus leaves your face feeling tingly and refreshed.

How to Use

Squeeze out a quarter-sized dollop, then build a thick, creamy lather using your hand or a badger hair brush. Apply a moderate coat to your face and neck, then shave as usual.

This is really really great shaving cream. I love the way it feels and performs, as well as they way it smells and leaves your skin feeling. I use it with a badger brush and it works quite well.

Not bad.

Im not really into shaving creams. I prefer shaving soap, and my shaving brush. However shaving creams serve their purpose since they're easier to take while on the go. This shaving cream is decent for the price, size, and ability to lather it with just your hands.

Uber Lather goto

I love adding C.O. Bigelow with a traditional hard shave soap to get the nice cooling sensation. It also makes a great lather by itself. I use straight razors and double edge razors for the past 6 years and found this about 3 years ago and have it in my normal rotation of soaps/creams.

Fantastic!

I was almost out of my regular shaving cream by Pacific Shaving co, and wanted something with a little menthol. This is exactly what I was looking for, it goes on easy, even without a brush and a little goes a long way. It has a great cooling effect without smelling like vapor rub. This just might be my cream of choice from now on.

Exceptional product!

Love the smell, lasts forever and provides a fantastic shave. I wish they made a travel size!

The product is in an old fashioned tin tube and has a nice bite to it once it is shaved and washed off. Your face tingles (a little) and it feels magical.

Great product!!!

I have been using this product for years have never looked back. Provides a nice level of protection, leaves skin feeling cool, tone and conditioned when done. Especially great if you have problem skin.

Would not shave without.

I shave with a 1958 safety razor (double edge). I lather my shaving cream or soap with a brush, Like my grandfather did. I have used many differnt types of shaving creams/soaps. This is the one I find myself going back to time and time again. Now this is made by Proraso and as I can tell is the same shaving cream. The smell is very nice, Its a little old school and I am only 24 but I love the smell. It has a very cooling feel to your face as well. I would recomend this to every one who shaves, not just guys who shave with a Double Edge razor or a Straight Razor.
