I purchased this product along with my first double-edged safety razor and the Proaso shaving cream. The smell is pleasant, though not at all strong. This product is great for softening the beard before shaving, and leaves my face cool and tingling after shaving. My skin has also been noticeably healthier since using this product. A little goes a long way, and I expect I will only need to purchase this product at most twice a year given the amount in each jar.

This product is a staple in Italy, and it's easy to see why. It's a classic, with no fills but good ingredients that leave user feeling refreshed after each application. I recommend this product

If used correctly of course.

The best way to sue this is on a wet face after you rinse post shave. This needs water, it wont do anything on dry skin. You just need a little dot on each cheek, I mean a little. Just enoguh to where it's visible on your finger. Rub into your wet face. I will even run my hands under water, shake off the excess and rub in some more to add water. If you use too much it will be sticky, then you will know next time to use less. This has the great proraso scent and cooling effect.

This little jar has lasted me about 6 months to a year. just remember, DONT over do this. You will waste it and not be happy with the product.

For sensitive skin, this product instantly opens up pores and provides a good slick surface to prevent ingrown hairs or other razor burn.

I use this product after showering and allow to sit on my face for a minimum of 2 minutes. I find that it softens the beard and makes shaving much easier.

The product lasts for a little while, only a dime-sized amount is enough for the entire face.

OK.

Some of you have likely seen my review on the Merkur Safety Razor, as well as the Proraso Shaving Soap. Well, I decided to take the plunge on a good pre-shave. I've used pre-shaves before and found them extremely lacking, especially in the softening department. For the record, this stuff works very well as a base for your shaving soap. It's got moderately strong menthol as well as a hint of eucalyptus behind it, and it will definitely clear your sinuses in the morning when coupled with a fresh, hot shower. And no, it does not smell like Noxzema. Noxzema has a sort of "creamy mint" smell, like Mint Chocolate ice cream. This one smells like you're standing in a eucalyptus forest.

I'd like to also go on record by saying that if you apply this first without fully rubbing it in, then apply the Proraso Shaving Soap directly on top, you'll experience such a relaxing sensation...it's hard to describe, almost spa-ish in nature. As if the barber shop were dead in the center of some spa. Trust me, it feels really good, and the blade glides right over to take the hairs out, even the stubble where you might not have had luck in the past. Your face will cool down quite a bit, almost like applying Icy-Hot.

The key is to apply this on a wet face. Applying it on a dry face is all fine and good, but then you're not benefiting fully from the moisture that is released when the cream interacts with the water. Also, it touts itself on Amazon as a pre-and-post shave cream...my honest opinion? The smell is too strong for a post-shave. I would opt something that is a little more subtle, such as the

I have curly hair and have tried hundreds of dollars worth of pre/post shaving creams and oils and have never found the correct solution. Proraso has a very cooling almost numbing affect when applied under my shaving cream (always mug and brush) has redused breakouts and ingrown hairs. I would recommend this product highly. I cannot shave without it.

My husband has tender skin and loves this product. It soothes his face while giving him a close shave. He massages a bit on before he shaves to help protect his skin, and then after to soothe. I absolutely love the smell--gentle eucalypyus and very manly. A total turn on!

This is an interesting product in the best possible way. Prior to this I started with no pre-shave before going to pre-shave oils. I found oils to be, surprise surprise, too oily and lead to some occasional pimple breakouts.

Then I got the Proraso Pre-shave cream as well as the Aftershave Lotion.

Efficacy:
The product works very well for what it is supposed to do. I noticed an immediate difference in the shave quality. I got a less irritating wet shave with fewer nicks and less razor burn.

What to Expect:
The first thing you will notice is the menthol smell. It is strong. If this is not a scent you enjoy, be warned. Also, when you apply this product you will get a strong physical sensation on your face. Imagine the Altoids sensation but on your skin. If you have sensitive skin, this may not be a positive for you. That said, I find the sensation to be an absolute pleasure. My shave regimen typically involves hot water so having this sensation to go along with it is extremely refreshing.

Notes:
A little can go a long way. Make sure your face is damp, pull a dime sized amount out of the container and you should be able to cover your entire face easily. If you feel it is a little too thin for you, rub some water into the mix on your face before getting more product. Also, this should not be applied like shaving cream. Apply this as you would a normal balm.
