PRORASO Shaving Cream

If you’re an old-fashioned gent, you like a quality shoe shine, crisp pocket squares, and a traditional straight-razor shave. But when a jam-packed schedule doesn’t allow for cutthroat whisker removal, we suggest this concentrated, creamy soap, which brings to mind classic barber shops (especially the Italian variety) with its tingly sensation and old-school packaging.

Great, close shave
Sampled

Loved discovering this product so I could switch up my shave routine. It feels good on my skin and helped me get a close, clean shave. Thanks, Birchbox!

Cool feeling
Sampled

I was skeptical of this product since there was clearly no reference to a glacier or snow in the name but oh what a cool feeling!

Nice shave finish
Sampled

The smell is not the best, but the nice fresh feeling after using is great.
Only downside is the toothpaste tube.

Great cooling feeling and clean scent

This is an awesome shave cream, and a steal for the price. You will definitely need a shaving brush (I use boar hair, but it will lather up fine with a badger, horse, or synthetic brush as well). A squirt of the cream (about an almond-size) in a bowl with a little bit of warm water (1/2tsp maybe? a couple drops really), and start going to town with the brush. If it doesn't start foaming up after 15 or so seconds, add a little more water. Repeat until you have a nice dense lather.

Then use the brush to massage it onto your face, for a full 30-60 seconds, this helps the hairs stand up and feels nice to boot. Since Proraso has menthol and eucalyptus, there will be an instant cooling sensation, which is quite nice (and a nice contrast to the warm lather). The smell is nice; not medicinal, but like an old fashioned barber shop. It lingers for maybe half an hour after the shave, but certainly wouldn't overpower any aftershave or cologne.

The cream is slick and protective, and whether you use a DE safety razor, or a cartridge (Mach 3, Gilette Fusion, etc...), you'll get a great shave.

this was new to me - felt old school
Sampled

the container looks like something from a movie, kinda liked that. not use to using new items for my daily shave. so far all good. take times to fall in love with a product and make sure it does not damage my skin, so tic toc. Thanks

Awesome, then terrible
Sampled

It seemed to work great for shaving, but then left an awful residue on the face. Almost like my face was covered in wax or oil or something.

Great Shaving Cream
Sampled

This was awesome shaving cream. I typically use a larger brand's foaming gel. I would much rather use this product.
