PRORASO Shaving Cream

Gentlemen of taste often prefer a straight-razor shave—but when there’s no time for the full cutthroat experience, try this concentrated, creamy shaving soap. Three distinctive Italian formulas ensure a truly personal touch, calling to mind barbershops of a bygone era.

Tastes bad
Sampled

The texture was very pasty, and the design (mine doesn't match the photo) is very similar to toothpaste sample tube logos/design. Yes, I brushed my teeth with Proraso. It was before I had coffee, but still. I don't think it's good as a toothpaste, nor a shaving cream.

Not Worthy of BirchBox’s Endorsement
Sampled

This is cheap, dime store quality product in Italy and Europe. People in the States don’t know this because it is imported here and costs too much for the quality of product it is. It is available in many stores here and is not a new or innovative product that people should try. It’s cheap, low quality shaving cream from Italy.

Not the best
Sampled

I did not like this product at all. The smell was not pleasant and it did not feel good on the skin.

Don’t like at all
Sampled

The shaving cream smells nice, but it goes on too thin. I put it on my face, and it dried out before I was halfway done shaving. It also caused me to get bad razor burn and irritation. Definitely would not recommend.

Didn’t try it. Generally like to use sensitive skin shaving cream.

Not for sensitive skin
Sampled

This product burned my face the second I put it on. It is definitely not a good product for people with sensitive skin. Or people with acne.

Poor value
Sampled

It takes a lot to cover the area. It's very poor value. It doesn't foam up.

Not on my list

I never shave with cream and razor, only with my electric razor. I wish that Birchbox would actually look at our profiles.

Waste
Sampled

What a waste. Awful. Not worth it. Would not buy this. Don’t know why it was included in my box. Rip off. Worst experience of my life. Is that fifty words yet? I hope so. Oops. Not yet. I’ll keep typing then.

DO NOT BUY THIS
Sampled

Do not buy this product. I shave my head and around my beard with Nivea cooling for sensitive skin, so I was happy to get a sample of this in my box. Now let me be clear, I DID NOT use this on my head! I only applied it around my beard and on my neck. This product turned into a glue like consistency when it came in contact with hot water and clogged my Mach 5 up in mere seconds. I went to my straight razor to finish the job and I felt I did not get as close of a shave as I would have with my Nivea products. Avoid this product and it’s price gouging price point at all costs, you’ll be happy you did!
