I can't say enough about Proraso. If you want a great shaving experience try Proraso from start to finish and you'll never be disappointed. This AS balm is a great final step in any shave routine. I find the scent light and complimentary with any of my soaps. I often rub it on over some Proraso pre/post cream for an extra degree of cooling. Moisturizes and cools effectively. The smell tends towards the medicinal (not the 1970's) which is a plus for me. This is a great product and well worth the money.
I have to say this aftershave is great, it does what it is supposed to do and has quality ingredients. I used this stuff for years but then tried C.O. Bigelow aftershaves and found them to perform slightly better, locally available, and cheaper too.
Since it's imported the prices have gone steadily up. It's a quality product but 16 bucks for 1 bottle is ridiculous considering this stuff retails in Italy for 2 or 3 bucks.
My only other gripe with this product is that it is too thick so it takes longer to absorb.
In any case this is a very good product, unfairly overpriced but good. I'll stick with Bigelow since it works about the same and it's cheaper but I'd recommend this.
Great aftershave balm, inexpensive and does exactly what its supposed to do. The scent is mild enough, wouldn't be my favourite but its not very strong and is gone completely after a few minutes. Love these old style glass bottles though!
This is a quality product that should be in every wet shaver's den. Great scent that leaves my skin soothed and supple. My rating was a little harsh on price, but a quality product. Highly recommended.
This aftershave feels very good on the skin, some people don't like the smell but if you don't mind proraso's scent then there is no reason one would not like the light almost coconut scent to it. It feels great on the skin, is perfect to use during the hot summer months, it does not burn me whatsoever, and seals the skin perfectly. A little goes a long way, and a bottle will last you a long time. This is a great aftershave balm to use, it simply works.b
I have been using Proraso liquid cream after shaving since I started to use a safety razor 3 months ago. The cream has a very manly, traditional barberstyle smell to it, but it is not overpowering in any way, and mixes well with your daycream. The times I have had a rough shave the product instantly cools the area down and gives me a nice tinkling sensation.... I can see that the witch hazel has an effect on my skin. In general a very good and affordable aftershave, that works great, and looks great in your bathroom.
I find myself going back to this AS again and again. It moisturizes well, it smells nice, and it fights razor burn. It goes on easily, and it doesn't leave a greasy or sticky residue. What more could you want? Okay, it doesn't freeze your face, but we can't always have everything we want.
Quality: Not my favourite AS cream, but it's guaranteed a spot with my Proraso lineup.
Fights Razor Burn: It does a solid job of this, but I don't get razor burn too badly now that I wet shave so I may not be the best judge.
Cooling Sensation: Not as nice as the pre/post or the splash, but combined with them it makes for one cooling shave!
Scent: I love the Proraso scent in all its forms!
Efficacy: It does what I want it to do!
Moisturizing: Not the most moisturizing, but it's best used on a warm day or when you want a break from the "heavier" products, so this isn't really a weak point to me--it's a positional soap that is every bit as important as its more moisturizing brethren.
This is a pretty good, cheap ASB.
It soothes the burn and moisturizes the skin. It does get a little sticky if you use too much though.
I would put it almost on par with Nivea except for one little detail: I just can't stand the smell of coconut! If you like coconut, this might be great for you, but I won't be ordering any more of this stuff.
