PRORASO Pre-Shave Cream

Having inherited more than a few of dad’s rusty shaving foam cans in our teenage years, we’re aware that shaving supplies don’t typically get better with age. Unless you’re talking about a heritage brand like PRORASO. The Italian line’s original preshave cream, with eucalyptus oil and menthol, is still a bestseller. They have also added a calming pre-shave formula that is designed for sensitive skin. You can’t go wrong with either one.

This product creates a cooling feeling that I do not care for when shaving. The scent, while not unpleasant, was too strong for my taste.

Not my favorite...

This product had a weird texture. It was chalky and paste like. I would not recommend.

Second product from this brand that i have received. It smells exactly like the last, that is, absolutely terible. Like aomething dug out of a moldy forest and crammed into a petite jar for your misery.

works well but, smells like a old folks home
Sampled

This product works very well. However, there is a strong stench similar to vicks vapor rub. I would also tame down the menthol in the product. My skin was overwhelmed for almost an hour afterwords.

Didn't lather
Sampled

It should be noted that I am fairly new to safety razor and brush shaving..this cream didn't lather at all. I am able to get a great lather with the stuff I use regularly. I tried several times to get this to lather and no luck, it seemed to disappear when I added more. Also, the menthol in it was so strong smelling it made my eyes water. I'm not big on menthol to begin with though. I will try this again because I have read great reviews. Maybe it takes a more experienced person to lather so I will give it another go later. I liked the packaging, very classic and clean looking.

Greasy shaving cream
Sampled

Is it just me, or did anyone else feel a little greasy after using this? The consistency just feels so... oily. It's heavy and leaves my pores feeling clogged after shaving. Not a fan.

Smells good; but not comfortable for shaving
Sampled

I'm more of a fan of beard oil when I shave with my straight razor. I used this without my usual shave oil and was not impressed. The misses suggested I use it with with my oil; I'll try that next time I shave my neck. Alone...no; with my normal beard oil...we'll see.

ineffective

Saw no reason to use this product in the future. Had hardly any consistency and seemed to improve nothing about my shaving.

Basically the same as any pre shave lotion. Smells the same, works the same.

Not the best

Didn't really enjoy this product for shaving. Strange texture, and only got two uses from entire product.
