Birchbox Breakdown

We’'re all for keeping things simple—but when it comes to your face, it doesn’'t pay to cut corners. Give your postshave skin what it needs most: hydration. This rich aftershave lotion delivers an infusion of moisture, along with witch hazel to reduce irritation and razor burn, eucalyptus oil to tone skin, and and a bit of alcohol for a traditional aftershave bite. In short, skip this step at your own risk.

How to Use

After shaving, gently pat skin dry with a clean towel. Pour a nickel-size amount of the aftershave into your palm. Rub hands together then apply to face and neck using a downward motion.

Refresh: Alcohol Denat., Aqua (Water/Eau), Glycerin, Parfum (Fragrance), Hamamelis virginiana (Witch Hazel) Leaf Water, Eucalyptus globulus Leaf Oil, Menthol, Citronellol, Geraniol, Hydroxyisohexyl 3-Cyclohexene Carboxaldehyde, Citral, Limonene, Linalool, Coumarin, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, CI 42090 (FD&C Blue No. 1), Cl 19140 (FD&C Yellow No. 5).

Consider whether this is what you’re really looking for

I received this Proraso aftershave along with their shaving cream as a gift. While I did enjoy the shaving cream, I was initially less impressed with the aftershave. As expected, it does come in a nice package and provides the skin with a fresh, cool feeling after shaving (it's worth noting that this product contains alcohol, which may cause a somewhat dry/burning sensation for sensitive skin). As other reviewers have noted, the consistency is that of a liquid rather than a lotion, but the scent is office friendly. Still, I found the menthol smell better suited for the shaving cream than the aftershave, and would generally prefer to pick at this $/oz price level a top-notch, cologne-smelling aftershave that is alcohol-free such as Blaviar Epsilon to finish a fine shave. However, after a while I revisited this product and realized that it actually works as advertised, and perhaps my own expectations were not exactly aligned with its purpose. It’s just not meant to be very soothing and calming for an irritated skin after shaving, but rather refreshing/cooling and even stinging. And it’s not intended to offer a luxurious cologne experience, but rather an old-school barbershop feel. All in all, this is certainly a more traditional option as an aftershave rather than an ultramodern one – make sure to approach it with the right expectations.

Felt great!

This felt wonderful after shaving, with an added bonus of actually smelling nice. I have some fairly sensitive skin when shaving and I always end up with a little razor burn by the end of it, so after I shaved this last time I used this aftershave and it actually felt soothing to the few spots I had of razor burn, even after ward I don't recall any of those spots being sore or red throughout the day(s) like they normally are. Overall, this is a great product.

The only thing my significant other will use!

My fiance is super picky about what kind of skin products he will use. He hates the feeling of pretty much all lotions on his face and is convinced skincare is for women. However, his skin is dry and a little sensitive so I've been trying to get him on a "manly" skin care regime. I left this aftershave on the vanity for him and he tried it unprompted (I think it was the packaging which doesn't scream "girly skin care product" in any way!) He LOVED it and immediately said it was the best after shave he had ever used. He said it gives the nice sting of a traditional aftershave and then immediately has a soothing, cooling effect on the skin. It left him really smooth and not irritated at all. I was so excited to have found something he loves. We will be repurchasing again and again!

Excellent Scent

I bought this with some points I had so got it cheap, but it is anything but. It does not have a strong scent, but it will leave your face feeling very smooth after a shave. There is some "burn", but that is just the menthol in it I would assume. I like it and will continue to buy every time I run out.

Absolutely love this!

I bought this because I needed to spend a few extra bucks to maximize my points value by barely going over what I had to spend and didn't expect so much for $14 -- but after I got it and used it I went on Amazon and cross-referenced it and noticed it was their #1 after shave too (at the time I bought it anyways - not sure about today) and I'm not surprised! It feels GREAT on your skin after a shave, a very short and brisk burn but then leaves your skin feeling so smooth and smells subtle but great! Will definitely buy more when my current bottle gets low!
