The newest Proraso Red with Sandalwood Oil and Shea Butter is finally here and has been tested this morning. I was quite excited to try it for the very first time and very happy with the shave that followed. This shaving cream is excellent. A truly great product in the Proraso style with a wonderful packaging, a fantastic scent and a completely new formula for a cream that simply performs at a very high level. Just like the new Green, the new Red also shows a traditional vintage look that reminds the old Italian barbershops of the early 1930s and 1940s with striking red and white diagonal stripes and the Proraso logo finely impressed in the center of the classic metal tube. The scent is robust, sticks around during the whole shave and is lovely Sandalwood smell that the connoisseurs of this popular fragrance will certainly appreciate. The formula is entirely new and contains Coconut Oil, Glycerin, Cocoa Seed Butter, Sandalwood Oil and Shea Butter for extra slickness and superior moisturizing properties. Latherability, as with any Proraso product, is exceptional and the lather you get is thick, creamy and effective. Compared to the Green theres actually no menthol kick since theres no Eucalyptus Oil and no Menthol, but you also get a better post-shave feel. On the skin its both nourishing and soothing and it seems that theres no need for an aftershave Give it a try, the new Proraso Red is terrific stuff indeed.
