Pros: Very Refreshing, and an eye-opener in the morning.
Cons: I like menthol, but I could see how it could be a little overpowering to some people.
I was a little apprehensive about this product because I had never used a soft soap. I had only used hard pucks. I really like it and will try some other soft soaps. It loads easily and lathers up great on your face. Feels good, has good slip and stays well. The plastic tub is growing on me too. I'll give it 4 out of 5 on the Dale Earnhardt Manliness scale. Try a tub of it and if you don't like it, give it to me.
Pros: Well priced, lovely cooling effect, slick shave
Cons: Smell is a little bit musty
WHAT IS IT, AND WHAT DOES IT DO?
Proraso Green Soap - Our shaving soap formula undergos a traditional “hot process”. The shaving cream is left to mature in small batches for a period of 10 days in a temperature-controlled room that protects the batches from temperature shifts. During this maturing process, moisture evaporates from the formulation resulting in a solid, concentrated shaving soap; perfect for professional brush application.
COMPONENTS - EUCALYPTUS OIL has a tonifying and purifying effect. MENTHOL has refreshing and revitalizing properties. GLYCERIN encourages a smooth shave, reducing irritation and redness.
APPLICATION METHOD AND DESCRIPTION:
I've tried both bowl and face lathering, and if I am honest, I prefer face lathering. A good 30 seconds swirling the brush in the soap, straight to the dampened face and the lather explodes into life. A bowl lather takes a little more soap to get a comparable lather, and benefits from approx 1 teaspoon of water to really bring it to it's best.
Honestly, the scent is somewhat traditional. It is one of those scents that you could almost describe as musty, but not unpleasant. The subtle cooling effect of the soap is particularly welcome on warm days, especially when combined with a cooling preshave. I've never been let down by the slick lather provided by Proraso Green, and is my most used item of software to date. The low price point of the product does not indicate a cheap product, rather it indicates that quality products can be available at a bargain price.
WOULD YOU BUY IT AGAIN?
Of course I would. It's a sub £6 product that functions well.
