Particularly effective when used in combination with a hot towel pre-shave routine. I’ve tried the green Proraso pre-shave, but find the smell far too overpowering. This has a pleasant, rather neutral odour which goes better with my preferred choice of citrus shaving soaps and creams.

Does a great job, enough to help guide the blade but does not clog it. I use a slightly aggressive Parker razor and a good pre-shave and cream are needed to help it along, this works perfectly.Also used as a post shave and it performs very well. There is a slight menthol kick to it but it is subtle. No adverse reactions on the skin.

I know many people use this as a pre shave and it’s fine for that purpose but I really like to use it post shave. Very soothing. A little goes a long way. Lovely fresh scent.

Far better than using oil does not blog the razor. Nice subtle smell that will not overpower your cream or soap. Slight menthol kick.

This pre shave cream has a pleasant scent, and a gives a great menthol feel on your face. It quickly softens beard growth and leaves a nice slick layer to lather on to.

Excellent stuff. Makes the skin feel great and smells fantastic

Prepares my skin before shaving to perfection. It’s got a great refreshing feeling and allows the blade to glide with a lot more easy. Highly recommended!

I have been using this for years. Cooling and moisturising. Exactly what you want after a close shave. Good price inc free delivery too.

Fairly new to DE shaving so bought this in an attempt to reduce razor burn. Not sure whether it’s the cream or just better technique (both shaving and lathering) that has reduced my razor burn. I find it goes on better on the second pass and it smells great. I do find it excellent post shave though. Makes my skin feel very fresh and soothed. I would probably buy it again. A little goes a long way so this will last you months.
As for Shave Lounge I now buy all my shaving items from them as the service is the best I have encountered on the internet. Can’t recommend them enough.

This is my go to pre-shave treatment and I doubt I will be changing anytime soon. Softens the beard growth well and helps with razor glide. You only need a little at a time so a jar will last a while. I shave every other day and my last jar lasted about 6 months. I have tried the menthol one but prefer the scent of the sensitive skin one. Once applied you get a lovely warming sensation, apply your shave lather on top and get your shave on. I’ve never used it as a post shave soother so can’t comment on that. Another great product at a great price from the Italian shave masters.

Does what it’s meant to – good product.

I have ultra sensitive skin and haven’t wet shaved in 6 yrs. I decided to try again this stuff is the nuts. Put it on before your shaving soap/cream and leave in for a few minutes and it really helps. I also put it on after shave as it helps close my pores.

I have been using this pre shave cream for at least a couple of years now as I have sensitive skin and it suits me fine. Pair with Proraso green tube shave cream for a fresh face shave. Good Stuff. Would Recommend.

I’m reviewing this as a newbie to DE shaving. I use this as pre and post shave. Pre-shave it definitely helps to soften the beard and gives you a great “tingle” before you shave. I only use a small amount to get good coverage. Also use it post shave too and it definitely freshens me up after the shave. I have sensitive skin and would have no doubt in recommending this. I’ve had no redness, soreness or any sort of reaction to it. Comparing it to other similar products it’s good value for money, Proraso has an excellent reputation and you can use it pre or post shave.
The service from Shave Lounge has been first class, and I’ll be definitely returning now I’m a DE convert!

Wash your face then rub this on and leave it for a short while. That leaves a great base for your shaving foam/cream/soap/oil etc, etc. If you are short for time, simply wet your face again, apply a little bit more Proraso if it feels that it has soaked away, and shave.
Almost as good as the green version, with the menthol & Eucalyptus, but not nearly as invigorating, hence only 4 stars.

I have used this a few times now and prefer it to the oil based pre shave treatments. I use after a hot shower and leave on for a couple of minutes and can certainly feel it tingle and has a nice cooling effect. You can even feel it slightly after you have shaved with your favourite cream. Currently I am using the proraso green tube shaving cream, which adds to the cooling effect. I could imagine this would feel even better on a hot summers day. Great for sensitive skin.

Applied as a pre-shave, this gives a cool menthol tingling sensation but without the usual mint fragrance; I can’t detect much difference in terms of beard softening but it does feel nice on the face and help razor glide. It’s a very good post-shave cream, quite unlike others I’ve tried in that it has a butter-like feel when applying to the face, but with no greasiness at all (quite the opposite – if I use it after shaving before bed, my face still feels very soft & supple the next day. It does leave the face feeling refreshed and there’s a high chance I would purchase this product again, especially at the price & considering its dual-purpose use.

Have been using for some time now and have not found anything to touch it. The best.
