Proraso Shaving Cream Review
If you like using shaving creams, then the Italian brand Proraso is probably one of the best known brands in the market place. They were founded as far back as 1926, in Florence, Italy. It is the one that I prefer myself, and they do a good range of slightly different products. I thought it would be worthwhile doing a review of their shaving cream range, just so as you could get a better understanding of what they offer.
They do two main types of cream, which are the pre-shave variety and the actual shaving cream itself. In this article though, we will just be looking at the actual creams that you will use for shaving. These will either come in tubes or in pots or jars.
At the moment Proraso offer four shaving cream products which are:
- Menthol Eucalyptus (Comes in a green tube)
- Sandalwood & Shea Butter (Comes in a red/burgundy tube)
- Aloe and Vitamin E (Comes in a blue tube)
- Ultra Sensitive (Comes in a white tube)
All of the packaging comes in a pretty old-fashioned barber pole style shaping box, and this then has the tube inside. The branding however is a very deliberate style that is we think, pretty eye-catching.
Proraso Shaving Cream Tube
150 ml Tube
I started with this one as it is one of their best sellers. As you can see from the picture below, this cream comes in a simple tube and you will find this one in homes all over Europe, and of course in Italy, the home of this brand.
It contains eucalyptus oil, menthol and glycerin.
Like almost all their products, this one gets great reviews. I use this one myself and it just keeps on delivering consistently, time after time. Like any wet shaver, I have dabbled with many brands and types of soap and cream, but this is the one that I would use the most.
You do need to whip this one up into a lather, but when you do, it is a high quality cream that gives you a great shave. You can read this article on how to use shaving creams, if you are a beginner to wet shaving. This one has a nice manly scent to it, that smells really fresh and also provides plenty of moisture to the skin. It is also good value for money with an average price of around £7-8[easyazon_link asin=”B00837ZOI0″ locale=”UK” new_window=”default” nofollow=”default” tag=”aguid-21″ add_to_cart=”default” cloaking=”default” localization=”default” popups=”default”]Click Here To See More Reviews, Ratings & Latest Prices[/easyazon_link]
Prorarso Sandalwood and Shea Butter Shaving Cream
150 ml Tube
This is the same as the one above in terms of size, but the packaging and the ingredients are clearly different. This is fairly recent product from this company, and now starting to grow in popularity. What makes this one different is that it does give you the barber type smell, and that is primarily down to the addition of sandalwood.
They have also added Shea butter into this particular cream, which helps produce a really rich cream. Like the one above, you should be able to buy this for between £7-8. You don’t need a lot of the product to get a good lather. The scent of sandalwood is feint, and that is something that we like about this product.
Some men use a disposable razor with this cream, but we would recommend moving to a DE safety razor for the very best results.[easyazon_link asin=”B008SB5882″ locale=”UK” new_window=”default” nofollow=”default” tag=”aguid-21″ add_to_cart=”default” cloaking=”default” localization=”default” popups=”default”]Click Here To Read More Reviews, Ratings and Best Prices[/easyazon_link]
Proraso Aloe and Vitamin E Shaving Cream
This is the third product in this range, and as you can see this one comes in the blue tube. The difference is of course that in this product they use Aloe with an added vitamin E. The scent is really good and we think a little different. It is a nice fresh scent that has subtle hints of coconut and liquorice.
Proraso have designed this one specifically for people whose skin may be a little more sensitive than others. They included the aloe and vitamin as it helps shavers who experience, either shaving rashes, shaving burn or general irritation. Only one of our contributors has used this and he says it is really good.
The scent is a more modern one that the traditional barber scent, but again, not a heavy scent.[easyazon_link asin=”B00DJ5Z99K” locale=”UK” new_window=”default” nofollow=”default” tag=”aguid-21″ add_to_cart=”default” cloaking=”default” localization=”default” popups=”default”]Click Here To Read More Reviews, See Rating & Latest Prices[/easyazon_link]
Proraso Shave Cream Jar for Ultra Sensitive Skin
The name tells you who this particular cream has been made for. If you have moderately to high sensitive skin, then this is a really good choice to go for.
This one uses an oatmeal extract, that then creates both a moisturising and soothing effect when used. There are no ingredients that you find in some other types of shaving creams, that would cause irritation to more sensitive skin types. That means there are no parabens, silicones, mineral oils or any kind of artificial colouring.
Those who buy this product really love it.[easyazon_link asin=”B002UJ8L82″ locale=”UK” new_window=”default” nofollow=”default” tag=”aguid-21″ add_to_cart=”default” cloaking=”default” localization=”default” popups=”default”]Click Here To read These Reviews[/easyazon_link]
In terms of shaving creams made by Proraso, this is their main range of products, and you should be able to find that one of these, can really make a difference to your entire shaving experience.
