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

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

Just OK

I really like the eucalyptus, but this doesn't quite foam up like a traditional shaving cream, which I would consider a negative. It doesn't really feel like it makes shaving any easier or make me have less irritation than even regular soap.

Nice surprise

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.

Good for when I do shave

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

I was curious having never used a Pre-shave cream before, but this really delivers. I have very sensitive skin, particularly on my neck, and this formula works wonders for me.
