    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 1930’s and 1940’s 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 there’s actually no “menthol kick” since there’s no Eucalyptus Oil and no Menthol, but you also get a better post-shave feel. On the skin it’s both nourishing and soothing and it seems that there’s no need for an aftershave… Give it a try, the new Proraso Red is terrific stuff indeed.

    Fantastic lather Marco. Can't wait to try this cream when it becomes available to us here in the USA.
     
  5. Thats a great looking lather. I use Proraso green in the older formulation and mine is always a bit bubbly.
     
  6. Grazie Marco for the great report! I can't wait to try this out, and most of the new Proraso line.
     
  7. I can't wait to get some! Marco tell them to hurry up with the Soap version. LOL
     
  8. Please God let there be a soap!
     
  9. Excellent to hear about this!
     
  10. Marco...can you post a photo of the ingredient list ?
     
  11. Looking forward to trying for the first time with tomorrows shave.
     
  12. Why wasn't I born in Italy?
     
  13. Looking forward to trying it when the initial buzz is over.
     
  14. I'd buy it for the packaging alone, very eye catching...
     
  15. Will definitely try it, but might wait until the bowl soap version is out. Or I might get both eventually. Not sure...have too much stuff already but Proraso without menthol sounds great.
     
  16. I want some...those ingredients look great. Looks like the perfect winter time cream. Hopefully it'll be in the US by then.
     
  17. Oh boy, do they plan on making soap version of this?
