PRORASO Pre-Shave Cream - Sensitive PRORASO Pre-Shave Cream - Refresh

Editor's TipEditor's Tip

In a pinch, this cream even does double duty as a moisturizing aftershave, but when you have a little more time, try PRORASO Liquid Aftershave, a lightweight, alcohol-free balm that provides instant hydration.

Birchbox Breakdown

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.

How it Works

The Classic formula, designed for normal skin, is loaded with eucalyptus oil, menthol, and glyceride to moisturize and tone in preparation for shaving. The Sensitive Skin formula is made with oatmeal and green tea, both of which have healing, hypoallergenic properties ideal for sensitive skin.

How to Use

Massage a small amount of product into damp skin until it is absorbed completely. Follow with shaving cream, then shave and rinse. For best results, finish with aftershave.

Sensitive Skin:
Aqua (Water/Eau), Stearic Acid, Sorbitol, Glycerin, Parfum (Fragrance), Avena sativa (Oat) Kernel Extract, Camellia sinensis Leaf Extract, Thymus vulgaris (Thyme) Flower/Leaf Extract, Tocopheryl Acetate, Potassium Hydroxide, Menthol, Cetearyl Alcohol, Sodium Benzoate, Phenoxyethanol, Benzyl Alcohol, Disodium EDTA, Pentaerythrityl Tetra-di-t-butyl Hydroxyhydrocinnamate, Limonene, Linalool, Citral, Hexyl Cinnamal, Geraniol, Citronellol.

Refresh:
Aqua (Water/Eau), Stearic Acid, Sorbitol, Glycerin, Camphor, Eucalyptus globulus Leaf Oil, Potassium Hydroxide, Menthol, Parfum (Fragrance), Geraniol, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Coumarin, Cetearyl Alcohol, Eucalyptol, Sodium Benzoate, Phenoxyethanol, Benzyl Alcohol, Disodium EDTA.

I have very sensitive skin on my neck and this definitely helps. Have not had any razor burn since starting to use this. Highly recommend this.

Shaving cream

My husband absolutely loves this shaving cream and so do I. His face after shaving looked great. It felt good and also has a good smell to it. He said to me where do we buy this at.

Really helps
Purchased

I got the refresh scent and like how the methol/eucalyptus gives a nice tingling sensation. It makes my morning shave smoother and its not too pricey to boot!

Good for your whole head!
Purchased

I use the Proraso products on more than my face. The top of my head is bald and I shave the back and sides. I really like the fragrance of this pre-shave and you can feel the tingling at work.

It Smells Weird
Purchased

It smells weird, but outside of that it's really soothing and refreshing. It really gets the face ready for a good shave.

One of the best

Goes on smooth, feels and smells great. Razor burn is something I only see on others faces, and never in the mirror. Its so good I dont even want to try any other pre-shave products. For clarification, I use the sensitive skin formula, not the original. But Proraso seems to only make quality products from my experiences.

Awesome stuff
Purchased

Bought this for my boyfriend who has a very sensitive face. He loves it. He gets a much better shave than normal and his face it less irritated after shaving.

Great Pre Shave
Purchased

Regardless of which shaving cream I try out, I've always stuck with the Proraso pre-shave cream as the base. It makes shaving with a double edge razor blade more enjoyable and easier on the skin. Highly recommend adding the this pre-shave cream.

Excellent cream

The pre-shave cream from Proraso is one of the best out there and is also very nicely priced. It provides some extra glide and also cools the skin nicely(if using the menthol). It also functions well as a post shave.

Essential first step
Purchased

My husband now exclusively uses these products and never before used a similar pre-shave product. He shaves every day for work and with this can shave the night before.
