Proraso Shaving Cream Review
You are going to love this Proraso Shaving Cream review. Because this is one of the best brands for shaving software.
The history of the brand goes back to 1908. Ludovico Martelli founded the company in Italy and it has survived for three generations.
Where to buy a Proraso Shaving Cream?
Luckily, you do not have to go to Italy to get one. Just read all the review below. I will give you the link to all the products of Proraso Shaving Cream.
Proraso Shaving Cream Has 4 lines of products:
- Green (Eucalyptus and Menthol)
- White (Green Tea and Oatmeal)
- Red (Karite Butter and Sandal Oil)
- Blue (Aloe Vera and Vitamin E)
Let’s go and discuss them.
Proraso Green (Eucalyptus and Menthol) Shaving Cream
Just squeeze a tiny bit of this cream, it will create a good amount of lather. Of course, it is best to use a shaving brush to lather. Otherwise, you will use too much amount of the cream.
The lather will be slick. This will give you a protection and the glide that you need while shaving.
I do not like the metal tube. It is like an old toothpaste tube that you really need to squeeze hard to get the remainder of the cream. I am not cheap but a quarter left with a big hassle to get it is what I don’t like.
Maybe they should consider changing the tube to a plastic one. Like the modern toothpaste uses.
Proraso Green (Eucalyptus and Menthol) Shaving Soap
Some people will recommend you pour hot water into the bowl. Not much, though. Let it sit for a couple of minutes to let the soap becomes ready. Pour out excess water.
But I prefer to…
Soak your brush in hot water for a couple of seconds. Make sure that the brush is really wet. Shake it a bit so you don’t have dripping water. Put the shaving brush on the soap. The hot water will run down to the soap and get it prepared.
Get your shaving brush ready and whisk away. You will get an amazing lather with this soap. The lather will be rich and creamy.
What People Like about Proraso Green
- The Eucalyptus and The Menthol will give you a fresh sensation
- Easy to lather
- The smell is not overwhelming but nice
- The lather is slick and creamy
- Your skin will be pampered.
Proraso White (Green Tea and Oatmeal) Shaving Cream
This variant provides a bit thicker coating than the original Green series.
Its cream is a bit thinner. You may occasionally over squeeze the tube and too much cream will squirt out. Too much shaving cream is not bad for me but you may have to buy a bit sooner.
Just use your shaving brush with this Proraso White (Green Tea and Oatmeal) Shaving Cream
And you will immediately fall in love with it.
Proraso White (Green Tea and Oatmeal) Shaving Soap
All you need to do is swirl your shaving brush to load it and build your lather. Remember to close the lid after use.
What People Like About Proraso White:
- The Oatmeal and Green Tea protect your skin from irritation
- Soothe the razor burn
- The lather is greasy but easily wash off
- Your skin will be moisturized
But I do not like….
The smell. It smells like medicine. I really don’t know how else to describe it. It is weak, though.
Proraso Red (Karite Butter and Sandal Oil) Shaving Cream
I really love the smell of Sandalwood. It is definitely one of my favorite fragrances. The woody smell will linger a bit. That is why I love it. The smell of the traditional barber.
The lather is creamy. I think this is the best amongst Proraso lines.
Proraso Red (Karite Butter and Sandal Oil) Shaving Soap in a Bowl
I will choose soap as it is “hard” and comes with a bowl.
What People Like About Proraso Red:
- Sandalwood smell
- Soften the beard
- It is slick
Proraso Blue (Aloe Vera and Vitamin E) Shaving Cream
The Proraso Blue is the only line that does not have a shaving soap in a bowl. Proraso Blue comes with Aloe Vera and Vitamin E. They give protection and moisturization for your skin. They also suitable for most skins as their properties are highly tolerable.
Because of it…
You can use this product if you have sensitive skin or acne prone skin.
This Proraso Blue has a very mild scent. The refreshing feeling (like the Proraso Green) is not present. Maybe because there is no menthol in it.
What I do not like….
The lather is not that lubricating (compared to the Proraso Green) but it is still on par with other brands out there.
This is still a great product from Proraso but it is the least amongst its brethren. Maybe this is the reason why they only provide the shaving cream. No soap in the bowl.
Proraso also provides :
- Green Pre Shave Cream.
- Green After Shave Lotion
- White Pre Shave Cream
- White After Shave Balm
- Red Pre Shave Cream
- Red After Shave Lotion
- Blue After Shave Balm
