To complete your old-school shaving setup, pick up a C.O. Bigelow Best Badger Shaving Brush.

Birchbox Breakdown

If you want something done right, you turn to the best, so when C.O. Bigelow sought out a best-in-class shave cream, it’s no surprise that they landed on PRORASO. This standout cream is based on the Italian brand’s time-honored formula, producing a cool, creamy lather that softens hair and protects skin for a superbly close shave, without complications.

How it Works

Coconut oil and glycerin create a smooth, hydrating lather that shields skin from razor blades. A blend of menthol and eucalyptus leaves your face feeling tingly and refreshed.

How to Use

Squeeze out a quarter-sized dollop, then build a thick, creamy lather using your hand or a badger hair brush. Apply a moderate coat to your face and neck, then shave as usual.

Aqua (Water), Stearic Acid, Cocos nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Potassium Hydroxide, Sodium Hydroxide, Glycerin, Lactic Acid, Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosinate, Menthol, Camphor, Eucalyptol, Eucalyptus globulus Leaf Oil, Pentaerythrityl Tetra-di-t-butyl Hydroxyhydrocinnamate, Sodium Metasilicate, Tetrasodium EDTA, HYdroxyehtyl-cellulose, Sodium Hydroxymethylglycinate, Geraniol, Parfum (Fragrance).

Best Shave Cream EVER!

This is the only shave cream that my husband will use. A little goes a long way. It lathers nicely and has a nice fresh scent. It even has diminished his razor burn.

Good cream shave product
Purchased

Proraso is not fancy by any means but it sure does the job we'll if you want a close shave every morning. You can't beat the price for this big tube and it will remind you of your favorite barber shop every time you use it .

Excellent Lather

Bought this before I joined BB. This tube will last a long time. Excellent scent. Allows the blade to glide through. You only need a little in the mug. This will be one of the better creams in your arsenal. It's also one of the best values out there at only $10.

This is really really great shaving cream. I love the way it feels and performs, as well as they way it smells and leaves your skin feeling. I use it with a badger brush and it works quite well.

Not bad.

Im not really into shaving creams. I prefer shaving soap, and my shaving brush. However shaving creams serve their purpose since they're easier to take while on the go. This shaving cream is decent for the price, size, and ability to lather it with just your hands.

Uber Lather goto

I love adding C.O. Bigelow with a traditional hard shave soap to get the nice cooling sensation. It also makes a great lather by itself. I use straight razors and double edge razors for the past 6 years and found this about 3 years ago and have it in my normal rotation of soaps/creams.

Fantastic!
Purchased

I was almost out of my regular shaving cream by Pacific Shaving co, and wanted something with a little menthol. This is exactly what I was looking for, it goes on easy, even without a brush and a little goes a long way. It has a great cooling effect without smelling like vapor rub. This just might be my cream of choice from now on.
