Proraso White

Item Description

I have - or like many guys here on B&B thought I had - sensitive skin. Turns out that I was just abusing my face with a disposable razor:blushing:

The Proraso White was the second soap I bought when I started DE shaving a while back.

The soap looks and feels more like a very heavy, thick shaving cream.

It's easy to load a brush with the soap, and the lather is pretty good. It seems it needs a slightly different technique from a triple milled soap, a glycerine soap or a cream like Trumpers.

I am still on the learning curve with this one...

I have yet to try the regular Proraso, as I don't like a strong menthol / eucalyptus scent. The Proraso White has a mild, green kind of smell, that is a bit odd out of the jar, but after the shave the scent seems to change a bit, and I really like it.

As for value, its not great - $10 for a tub (canada) but it's a soap I'll keep using.

A very good, basic soap for sensitive sking. Very slight fragrance. Good lather, good lubrication. No big whoop, just a solid, basic soap.

This one gets my vote for best value in soap. For me, it is also one of the best lathering soaps. I have no dryness problems using it. A pinch of Proraso cream with this soap makes a great super-lather.

When I want a great, quick lather that gets the job every time, I grab this stuff. I pick this up at the local market for $5 so it's a great value to me. I love the way the menthol creeps up at you in this stuff! This will ALWAYS be in my rotation!
