Menthol & Eucalyptus Oil Cream (Green Tube) (New Formulation)

Item Description

This is the 150 ml Proraso 'Green' Cream new formulation, which has not been 'officially' reviewed.

The new formula, manufactured by Ludovico Martelli s.r.l. in Firenze, no longer contains parabens (amongst other ingredients) and the prepackaging logo has gone 'retro' along with the addition of barber stripes.

At a price starting at about €2 (~$2.75) and an average range of about $6-10 in the US, this cream provides amazing protection, lathering and glide for the money. It is the 'Go To' Cream for countless wet shavers and requires little introduction. It can be found practically everywhere in Italy, from pharmacists to supermarkets and beyond. If any considerable differences have been noted, or for that matter, complaints made about the new formulation, I have yet to hear them.

This cream, for me and many others, stands up to countless 'high street' creams sold for much higher prices. I thoroughly recommend it!

Pros: Great lather
Cons: Eucalyptus is very strong
I got the green box C.O. Bigelow label of this cream for Christmas. I have to say this cream really lathers. All you need is a small amount on your brush. I love the scent, but the eucalyptus is pretty strong, and at least on my face, my skin feels ice cold while I'm shaving. But you can't beat the price, and I'll probably always keep some of this stuff around.

Pros: Lathers well, smells great, slick feel
I purchased this from Bath & Body works under CO Bigelow.

I used a Utopia DE razor w/Derby blades. I have a medium-heavy beard with moderate to sensitive skin. I should have used a new blade as I'm sure that it would've helped with the nicks and irritation.

It lathers well. I used a boar brush & a bowl. I really like the smell. It's subtle and not overpowering.

The foam is pretty slick giving good protection. I got a really good close shave with 2 very small nicks on the upper lip along w/some minor irritation along the neck (nothing new). I needed to do 2 passes (as always). Face is soft like a baby's tush.

But I'm happy with the product. Well worth it.

Pros: Excellent lather and skincare
What can I say - this new version of Proraso Green is terrific in every way. The lather is so much easier to create now, the skincare is fantastic. The cooling sensation is very much there and if anything I find it to be a little more intense than before. The price is quite reasonable, so it sure won't hurt your budget. Somehow I find the packaging a little more elegant. Try it and I'm sure you'll be happy you did.
