Proraso Pre-Shave Review

The first thing I noticed about the Proraso Pre-Shave Cream upon opening the jar is that it is unlike any other pre-shave I have used or seen before.  It’s a cream, not an oil.  It has a bit of a menthol smell.  It looks like it would be too thick to use.  These difference combine to contribute to a truly remarkable shaving experience.  Just an almond-sized dollop on my finger is all I needed to bump the quality of my shave ten-fold. While the cream appears thick in the jar, once I got a little on my fingers it felt much lighter and very slick.  I massaged a little gently in my palms before applying it to my face in a circular motion.  A little water was all I needed to wash the excess cream off my hands.  This alone was much easier than most oils.  The smell of menthol definitely perked me up too. I let this sit on for a few minutes while I started my lather, and once I was ready I lathered whatever cream or soap I was using right over the Proraso Pre-Shave. My first pass glided so smoothly…
