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.
Had a bit of trouble getting it lathery first time trying with a brush but still the shave was much better then store brand gel I used before.4
Product seems to work well on sensitive skin, but there are better creams available3
I had looked into this shaving cream a while back but decided against buying it because it used inferior ingredients that contained parabens. I checked the ingredients label on this product when I received it in my box and it looks like this cream has gotten an overhaul and no longer contains them.
The product is great, I am very impressed. The cream develops a thick, smooth lather with minimal work when using a brush. I was able to get an extremely close shave, with my post-shave face feeling smoother than normal. The only minor complaint that I had was with the menthol. It felt refreshing early in the shave, but by my second pass it had gotten pretty strong, almost like icyhot. Not really a complaint, more like an annoyance. Other than that, this is a great cream and I plan on buying it once my sample runs out.
When I shave (about once every three days), it is a process. I have a thick beard and I have to shave carefully. I normally use a pre-shave oil and a badger brush. I put a quarter-size sampling of Proraso in my shaving dish this morning and used it with my shave brush. As I continued to prep my beard with the brush, the cream developed into a nice lather. The smell was very soft and muted, and honestly this is a plus since shaving cream can often conflict with your fragrance. Really nice product. Provided a great shave. I also really like the tube packaging. It's classic, simple, and appealing. Out of 4 stars... Packaging: 4, Design: 4, Lather: 5, Scent: 4, Hydrating, emollient factor: 4. Overall an 4 out of 5 stars. Solid shave cream. As an aside, this packaging is ideal for traveling.4
After using Proraso shaving cream from my Birchbox, I will now be purchasing the full size tube it gave me the closest shave I've ever had and the wife loved the scent.5
It is difficult to rate a shave cream. I personally don't like creams, but if I did then I would use this brand! I am more of a foaming type of guy, but this did provide a nice smooth shave with minimal burn.3
Good, easy lather. Lubricates nicely for my shave. It has a bit of camphor, which makes for a cool refreshing shave. It's a well respected brand in the shaving community.4
Good, easy to lather. Refreshingly cool soap. It has a bit of camphor to give it that cooling feeling. Good lubrication for my shave.4
After years of hating shaving and seeing the resurgence of traditional shaving methods with a safety/straight razor and badger brushes, I completely revamped my shaving game, and I owe a lot of its success to this shaving cream. I use a dime sized amount in my shaving bowl, and it lathers up so nice for my 3 passes. Soothing and manly scent, and combined with my regiment leaves my face nick-free and extremely smooth with no razor bumps or irritation in the slightest. My one tube will last for a long time, and it's absolutely worth it.5
I just wasn't impressed with this product, it was little different then the shaving cream I already use. I had wet hands, like the directions said, and still the lather wasn't very um lathery... The shave was nice, and overall smooth, however the smell wasn't great...was something very unmemorable...not classic, not trendy, just blah. so, not a great lather, not a great smell? I'd say stick with something else...this isn't worth trying in my opinion. For what it's worth.3
