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 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.

Great product - use every shave now
Sampled

I can grow facial hair decently quick after a few days my whole face is grizzly. I shave around twice a week and use this cream right before I lather up and my shave is more comfortable and closer than it was previously shaving without Prosaro

I've used it once (I just got my January Birchbox). I will definitely be using it again and again. I really enjoyed the scent and made my face feel fresh.

I have a beard, but I used this product when I shaved the areas where I didn't want hair on my face, product works, but I don't shave very much so YMMV

Smells like cat urine.
Sampled

This product smells like cat urine to me, which made it completely unusable. Really nothing else I can say other than it smelled really really bad.

Very refreshing
SampledPurchased

The Proraso pre-shave cream has a very refreshing scent. I couple it with the shaving cream (sensitive formula), and have a very comfortable, irritation-free shave.

a classic

proraso is a go-to for the standard shave. i use their entire product line. the scent on this is unique, similar to vicks vapor rub. i like it, since it wakes you up as you prep your skin.

Very nice

I was surprised. This has a consistency like Noxema face wash, which I use when I get sunburns or have other skin irritation. I really liked it for a shaving cream.
