PRORASO Shaving Cream

Gentlemen of taste often prefer a traditional straight-razor shave. But when your schedule won't allow for cutthroat whisker removal, try this concentrated, creamy soap. Your choice from three distinctive formulas will have its perks: Refresh uses eucalyptus oil to tone and purify skin, plus menthol to deliver a tingly kick. Nourish uses karité butter and sandalwood oil to soften tough beards, producing a smoother, easier shave. Protect taps aloe and Vitamin E to soothe sensitive skin, leaving it soft and hydrated with a crisp, musky scent. Whichever you choose, it'll bring to mind classic barber shops with its no-fuss results and old-school packaging.

A True Classic

I've been brush shaving for over three years now and I have found Proraso to be one of the best. The smell, the cooling effect and the thickness of the lather all make this a truly great shave cream. When it comes to this brand, I've yet to be disappointed.

Love this shave cream!

First discovered this a few months back with a sample in my box, have ordered the full size 3 times since and have settled on Protective as the best version for my shaving needs. It's goes on soft and smooth and creates a nice moisturizing layer for my rough morning stubble. A little goes along way with this cream and a full tube can last a few weeks if used sparingly. The scent for Protective is less perfumery than the others available, yet had a subtle fragrance which to me smells minty/clinical. Not overpowering. It provides a nice tingle as well.

Like a breath mint for your face

I have used a commonly available shaving cream produced by Proraso for a large retail bath products chain that you can find in nearly every mall in the country for years. Though I use this product regularly, I was pleased to see a sample of the regular Proraso product in my monthly BB. I consider this one of the indispensable toiletry kit items for any man that shaves regularly. The thick consistency of the cream gives a nice rich coating to your face and beard that lubricates well as you shave. The smell and tingle of eucalyptus and menthol is super refreshing and a nice addition to my pre-work ritual. If you don't like "minty" scents, or you have very sensitive skin, then this may not be perfect for you, but most men will find that this performs as well or better than any drug store brand shaving cream with the added bonus of the rich scent and bracing cooling effect. My only gripe here is that the sample was not overly large. It is enough to shave about two times. One key to this product (in my opinion) is that it should be used generously enough to really help. My budget for self-indulgence can be stingy at times, but this one is a good enough value to use more liberally and experience the full benefit of the product regularly.

My wife got me a birchbox subscription and I was leery at first but after using this shaving cream I will be looking forward to the samples every month. I thought this shaving cream was great and will definitely purchase in the future

Feels and smells great. Works too.

Even with the small sample you get a great demo of the product. I have used it three times so far and it is certainly the best I've used. It smells great, it lathers very well with my boar hair brush and it cools the face. I didn't know about this product until Birchbox sent it to me and I am glad they did.

refreshing shave

I liked this shaving cream--I think what really set it apart for me was the menthol, as it created a slight tingly, cooling sensation that's utterly refreshing on a hot summer day.
