I heard about this stuff in a magazine but was skeptical that a 150 ml tube would last more than a week. But this is no ordinary shave cream. I put a dollop the size of a peanut into a small dish and added about a half ounce of hot water, then used a shaving brush to stir it briskly. In about 30 seconds I had a foamy soft lather that was enough for more than one shave. I've been shaving for decades and have used everything from folding straight razors to toss-away plastic ones. I normally use a double-edged razor with Personna blades and this is now my go-to shave cream. Smells great, feels great, and allows a close shave. Plus one tube will last me about the same amount of time as my Edge or Barbasol but this stuff has ingredients that are many times higher quality. But you have to use it as I described, otherwise you'll probably be confused and disappointed because you need to whisk it up with a brush to get real lather.

Too many companies revise their brands to increase profits at the expense of quality. Proraso has been a favorite of many wet shavers for years because it's been a consistently excellent product that works well. It's also a great value compared to many products out there. With the demise of old-school products in most grocery stores in the US, we have to turn to alternatives to get the results that we expect. Proraso is one such brand that is revered among old-school wet shavers.

However, there have been times where people have criticized a few of the ingredients in the old formulations. It is certainly worth taking note. Some more recent EU cosmetics standards have increased scrutiny over certain components in many products. Whether or not this is the reason for reformulation, the SLS, propylene glycol, and parabens, etc., have been removed from their products. In the process, the manufacturer appears to have spent a considerable amount of effort in revamping the product line to give it a bit more diversity.

This new sandalwood and shea version of Proraso surprised me. I hadn't expected to see this product when I was out to replenish some of my shave cream / soap stash. In fact, I didn't even know it existed until about a week ago.

In terms of performance, it still works as well as it ever has. Lathering is a bit different due to the lack of foaming that the old SLS would provide (which is why companies use SLS in the first place). It is my understanding that natural products cannot create the same foaming properties of detergents. I actually generally prefer to not have SLS in my products. Nevertheless, the lather is still great and protects the skin while retaining water. Water is the most important part of the shave.

I have around a half-dozen different sandalwood shaving creams, including Truefitt & Hill, Taylor, Cyril Salter, Queen Charlotte Soaps, Mama Bear's, and Trumpers. This is the first one that truly smells like sandalwood essential oil. Compared to the others, all which are more expensive, this is my favorite scent. Lathers well, slick, no menthol burn (may be a pro or con depending on your viewpoint), and the scent lasts a few hours. Oh, and cheap, especially with free Prime shipping.

Of the other brands, Taylor is probably the farthest from true sandalwood and also the strongest. Cyril Salter has the best lather IMO, but smells weird, would never suspect it was sandalwood - using it is kind of like picking scabs, don't really want to do it, but do it anyway. Keep coming back to it, but all the while wondering why I am using it again (great lather?). Trumpers reminds me of mosquito repellent, Truefitt is almost non-existent smell, and both Queen Charlotte and Mama Bears smelled nice but had a distinctive isopropyl alcohol top note.

Bottom line, this is my favorite scent, doesn't taste too bad, and the lather is right in the mix at between 1/2 and 1/3 the price of the others. Tough combination to beat! Okay, just kidding about the taste...

I have half a dozen different shaving creams at home but really like my original green Proraso (soap and cream). This "Red" Proraso does not let you down. The sandalwood oil smell is not overly strong to me and it provides a great lather.

If you're ordering one Proraso, go with the green. If you're looking for something new, the Red is a nice addition.

This review is for the nourish/sandalwood version of Proraso. The performance of this is outstanding. In my opinion this performs better than some of the English shaving creams that I have tried in the tubs costing almost three times as much. This creates a very slick and cushiony lather with a shaving brush that coats the face quite well and prevents nicks. The smell provides me with an overall sense of well being. Smells like warm cocoa beans out of the tube. After rinsing after the final pass, it does leave a slight scent of a warm and woodsy sandalwood. It's not a bright or especially spicy scent, but more of a soft, muted undertone that lasts a descent amount of time. This shave cream differs from the one with eucalyptus in that it doesn't give that icy cooling sensation after the final rinse and so I will stick to this one in the fall and winter and switch to the traditional in the summer.
Overall wonderful personal care product that should be on the shelves here in the USA. Unfortunately most are stuck with the artificially colored canned goo that comes of a spray bottle. Fortunately Amazon makes this Italian product easy to get your hands on. Thank you and enjoy.
