Proraso is an Italian company that was founded in 1930. For the last three generations, the Proraso Company has been producing products for the perfect shave. Proraso produces shaving products for men including pre-shave cream, shaving creams, after shave cream, shaving brushes and shaving soaps. This company follows the same standards of quality they have followed since the 1930s.
The first product in the Proraso range that has made it popular amongst Italian men and other men all over the world is the Proraso pre-shave cream SV-16X.
When I purchased this product, it worked extremely well for what it was supposed to do. I could notice the clear difference in the shaving quality. I got a less irritating wet shave with less razor burn and fewer nicks.With its thick lather, I wondered why I was wasting much time with lackluster gels from commercial brands in the past.
Owing to the fact that I’ve got a tender skin, the results I got were incredible. In the first place, it has a thick and concentrated texture hence it prepares the skin by making it elastic and ready for shaving without any problems. It also features added witch hazel that reduces razor burns and rashes. Nowadays, whenever I shave, I’m able to achieve a new level of baby-butt-smooth skin. I also learnt that my beard became very soft and the pores on my face were open. I could really feel it.
Unlike other pre-shave cream brands, this cream has a unique, pleasantly masculine smell that is not overpowering. Furthermore, the cream has a nice warming feel to the skin when applied hence making for an overall nice shaving experience.
Generally, I believe Proraso pre-shave works pretty well. My shaving experience with the product was just awesome, my face felt and looked better. I therefore recommend the product since it assures a true shave making you feel more like a man and a bit more classier.
Proraso Aftershave Lotion SV-17X
This lotion is made from a collection of fresh and natural ingredients which makes it effective mainly for cooling and toning. I bought this lotion after I read some recommendations on shaving forums. At first, I was a bit skeptical but what this product came to offer was just amazing. First, I found the scent and feel of this product splendid. With its mild and lovely smell, my fiancée misses it till today.
The product has menthol that refreshes and revitalizes the skin. The added eucalyptus ensures increased cooling efficiency. It also tones the skin with glycerin in it. Moreover, it has no parabens, silicons, mineral oils or artificial colors.
The amazing part of this aftershave is that it does not contain the designer-perfume scent like other high-end name brands. Another great thing about this aftershave lotion is that it gives a tight and fresh shaved feeling without a burning feeling. Furthermore this aftershave lotion cools your face after you’ve dragged your razor blade over it.
In a nutshell, as a user of the Proraso Aftershave Lotion, I’m in love with the new formula because it has got a better, cleaner fragrance and it’s less medicinal. I even liked the new bottle. Lovers of the original aftershave lotion, buy with confidence.
Proraso Shaving Cream Tube SV-14X
This cream is a quantum leap in terms of quality compared to the canned stuff on the drug stores. When I purchased this product, I didn’t know that it was an excellent step in the journey towards a vastly improved experience. My dream had come true.
Having had an unpleasant experience with the old version of the cream whereby it left my face dry, the Proraso does not cause that. The new version also does not contain parabens which might cause cancer and skin irritation.
The cream’s cooling, tingling sensation of eucalyptus oil and menthol is definitely a pleasurable experience. Though it’s a post shave, Proraso really shines. Once the last bit of lather has been rinsed away and followed by a cold water rinse, you will truly feel the invigorating pleasure of this cream.
This shaving cream is undoubtedly the best bang for the buck in hi-end, non drugstore shave creams. Starting from the texture, effectiveness and consistency of the cream, I can comfortably recommend this product as you do not require a badger hair brush.
Generally speaking, Proraso Shaving Cream Tube SV-14X is my favorite and neither does it frustrate. The 5.2 oz tube lasts a long time because you only need about 1/4 to 1/2″ of the stuff to make a lot of rich, creamy and soothing lather. After shaving you are assured a nice refreshing and tingly feeling of the skin. I therefore recommend this product since it is a good stuff. Though it seems pricey, it can last a long time hence I would say it’s really a good deal and the quality of the shave makes it well worth it. I’ve tried them all and keep coming back to Proraso.
