Italian Floid

Item Description

Italian Personified

This is the After Shave I grab when I’m going for a touch of the “Old Country,” as my olfactory senses instantly transport me to an Italian Barbershop (even my girlfriend commented one day after I had finished slathering this all over my mug: “It smells like a barbershop in here!”). I typically describe the scent as powdery-anise.

Italian Floid also has an amazing feel to your skin. It is exceptionally cooling, and reportedly has a lower alcohol content than a standard alcohol-based Aftershave (per Intercosmo’s [manufacturer] website):

"The genuine" After-Shave:
Lotion formulated with natural extracts and a low percentage of alcohol.
§ It's the forerunner of the entire line.
§ Fresh and pleasant fragrance thanks to the menthol in the formula.
§ Performs a moisturizing and hydrating action on the skin.
§ A lotion with a low percentage of alcohol and natural extracts.
§ Soothes redness and irritations.

Yes, it does a wonderful job of soothing redness and irritation. And it does this very quickly. Less than 5 minutes after applying this, your face will be cleared of most redness/irritation. It will also leave your skin BS (baby soft) and nicely moisturized.

The only downside to this aftershave is that its extremely difficult to source, available only from overseas retailers, and it comes packaged in a very heavy glass bottle. Shipping can be exorbitant.

Pros: Discrete scent.
Cons: Non
A very discrete scent for when you dont want to be smelt a mile off. I prefer this to the Proraso splash as it is milder and more soothing. It leaves my skin with a pleasantly soft and powdery finnish with no irritation. I chose that I would recommend this but for some reason it says that I don't at the top.

A real classic barbershop powdery scent. Looks as good as it performs.

I have this 400ml bottle for about 2 weeks and it's a great aftershave. I have the blue floid which I love also so I really wanted to give this a try. I thought the blue floid would be more menthol and cooling but not so, this is far more. When I first sniffed the bottle I thought the scent was abit sweet for me. Not so, when applied to a freshly shaven face you get very little burn followed by a lovely cooling sensation and your face is left powdery soft. To me the scent is sweet and musky but doesn't last that long. I find this very moisturizing for an aftershave splash and unless you have dry skin it's all that is needed to finish your shave.
