This stuff is top notch. I hadn't used a pre-shave cream before, but I'm never going back! It's helped improve the quality of my shave, and it's also great post-shave! Highly recommend.

Ever wondered what it was like to be smacked in the face with a eucalyptus branch? A great pre-shave cream with a punch of eucalyptus and menthol, It really wakes you up in the morning. Improving your shave and leaving your skin feeling fresh this is a staple for heavy growth and coarse beards.

I have a few pre shave creams, but this is my favourite. Refreshing with a zesty feel. Gets rid of razor burn nicely. A little goes a long way. Recommended.

Need something to help your skin feel refreshed and smooth after a shave? This is it. On my second jar now. Leaves the skin feeling all the above. I use it in conjunction with the after shave balm from Proraso. Luxury doesn't have to be expensive.

A good smell and refreshing pre-shave experience. Although a hot water face wash seems to return similar results. Haven't tried as an after shave.

Awesome. Review by: Joshua 21/04/2016
Rating:
This stuff is great. I chuck it on straight out of the shower and leave it for a few minutes while I dry off, fill the sink and heat my bowl. Then I wash about 2/3 of it off and get to work. I have tried two other pre-shave products and I have noticeably worse shaves if I use anything but Proraso green. I haven't had a nick in months and almost never get any irritation anymore. I have sensitive skin and shave three passes six days a week with Astra SP or Feather blades.

This pre-shave cream is great and helps my razor glide over my skin when i apply it before the proraso soap. Its strong menthol scent helps wake me up in the morning and feels refreshing on my skin.

I love using the Proraso Pre Shave cream before & after a shave as it gives a nice refreshing feel to the skin. I never get shaving rash since using this and sharp blades.
Smooth, soft, smells great Review by: Steve B 22/12/2015
Rating:
This is an excellent pre-shave cream that will soothe and soften the skin before shaving but this can also be used after shaving.

The first thing you should notice is the fragrance and it's a strong menthol/eucalyptus odour, much stronger than the Proraso green shaving cream. If you like the smell of menthol and eucalyptus, you will love this pre-shave cream. If you don't, then probably best not to buy this because the odour is strong.

This is a great pre and post-shave cream, heavily recommended for those who love the smell of menthol and eucalyptus.
Sharp and fresh! Review by: Manny 22/11/2015

Without a doubt it's made it into my must haves for wet shaving. It works beautifully in softening my skin for a close shave and smells, fresh to match.
Nothing really compares the feeling after shave with this product.
Highly recommended.

I use this for its refreshing cooling effect before applying my shaving cream. Of all the shaving creams I have used on top of it everything has complimented nicely and I get great shaves using this stuff, definitely worth a try
Best product I bought for summer Review by: Wet Shaving Advocate 30/11/2014

This leaves your skin refreshed and gives you a strong menthol kick with a tingle. Try to apply it then use a hot towel over it, the steam plus the cream work well together to soften the beard, I could go on and on, try it... Thank me later :)

This has known skin irritating ingredients that make it unsuitable for either pre- or post-shave applications: Benzyl Alcohol & Phenoxyethanol, both preservatives.
Fails to land a punch, suffers from an identity crisis Review by: The Professional Flaneur 3/05/2014
Rating:
Few areas in the world of wet shaving are as contentious and reflective of personal taste as pre-shave products. Some are convinced that a good application of hot water before the shave, combined with a quality shaving cream, is all that is required for a smooth shave. Others insist that pre-shave products can make a massive difference in the overall experience.

While there's no question pre-shave products are an area one should explore to see what floats one's boat, this product may not be the one of choice when dipping your toe into the waters. A good pre-shave product will ensure there's a nice layer of lubrication sitting under the shave cream, allowing the razor to glide more smoothly over your skin. Most pre-shave products are oil based, but this product is somewhat akin to a slightly powdery cream. It's gets fairly rapidly absorbed and provides marginal if not questionable lubrication during the shave.

Notice how quite often it's referred to as a "post" shave cream, even though the box only refers to it as pre-shave? That's because it's actually more effective as an after shave balm than anything to do with pre-shave lubrication.

There's some good options out there for pre-shave treatments, such as a light application of glycerine based soaps such as Mr Glo (Musgo Real GLycerine sOap). Ultimately it'll provide better value for money and do a much better job. I'd recommend giving that a shot over attempting to use this post-shave balm as a pre-shave treatment.

Brilliant Review by: Tim 23/03/2014

I have only been wet shaving for a few weeks and I'm so glad to have included this pre shave cream in my order!
It has a great menthol smell that helps to wake me up each morning and I use this with the Proraso shaving soap to have a great shave.
I also use a small amount after shaving to give a refreshing smell throughout the day.
One time I thought I'd try a shave without using this product before shaving and on my first stroke, I could feel it was more harsh on my beard. I'll always be using this stuff to get the best shave.
You must try it to understand how great it is!

I got this when I was new to wet shaving and noticed a difference almost immediately. It helped to soften the beard and gave a soothing cool feeling during and after the shave.

This jar has lasted me quite a long time, when it runs out I plan on buying the larger size.
Great pre and post cream Review by: Felix 11/01/2014
Rating:
Like others have said, although the name on the tin says it's a pre shave cream, it works excellently post shave as well. A small amount will go a surprisingly long way during your pre shave routine and the cool menthol flavour will soften up your whiskers and, coupled with the cream or soap of your choice, you'll have no problem in achieving a lovely smooth shave. Post shave, after a quick rinse with cold water, the cream's cooling effect on the face is very satisfying and after a few minutes i put on some moisturizer and my face feels like a dream.

Good stuff Review by: R E 20/08/2013
Rating:
This stuff works - I have had some of my best shaves after buying a tub of this based on the reviews here. I get really smooth shave. It takes a bit of trial and error to figure out the right amount of cream to use though - I have found that only a very small amount is required. Applying more that half a fingertip is likely to give me irritation from excessive menthol as I seem to have sensitive skin. Luckily, it still works really well with only a small amount - I was probably using too much to begin with! Therefore it gets 5 stars, as it is only user error that caused any problems.
Better than a Shave Oil Review by: Shane 5/08/2013
Rating:
Overall I am very impressed with this product. I picked this Pre-Shave up after my shave oil ran out, and I had been using the Proraso shaving cream for some time.

Rubbed directly into the skin prior to applying lather, it creates an instant cooling effect, with a pleasant menthol sent, and adds that extra layer of lubrication, usually found through applying a shave oil - put without the mess of having to remove the ring of oil and stubble from your sink and razor post-shave.

Only con would be to use caution when applying this stuff to your upper lip and avoid at all cost getting any up a nostril, this stuff is potent and you'll know about it if you do...
Great Review by: Stephen 26/06/2013

It becomes obvious why Proraso have earned the reputation they have world over with their products. The pre-shave cream certainly makes shaving slicker & smoother. A little goes a long way in preparation and has a nice bite from the menthol. It solved the problem of razor burn & rash around my neck area when I used it after a shave. I only wish I bought this when I started out DE shaving.

The BEST pre-shave Review by: Persistenceofloss 26/02/2013
Rating:
This is the best pre-shave hands down. If you shave with a straight razor this is must have. The menthol is a bit of a blast and will not be to everyones taste... otherwise you can use it as a wake up for your morning shave. Use it before you lather up and you will get a closer shave, fewer nicks and an overall less irritated shave. Brilliant!
great value Review by: Aaron 11/01/2013

this is what makes the difference for me as i occasionally shave a little too close and get slight irritation and this cream just makes life a little bit easier.
works well as an aftershave as well +1
Excellent Review by: BlackBear 1/01/2013
Rating:
A very nice Proraso product, I apply on a wet, prepared face and let it sit while I mix up a lather and also reapply a small amount in between passes.

Really helps to soften the beard and helps the razor glide.

A real wake up call for the skin, especially when paired with the Proraso green shave soap, fresh menthol and eucalyptus scents with a cool and tingling sensation on the skin. Very nice.

All Proraso products are very good quality and great value for money, used by wet shavers everywhere, you hardly hear a bad word about them.
Worth Every Cent Review by: DavidR 20/12/2012
Rating:
I essentially bought this on a whim when I wanted to get my order total over $20 to get free shipping when buying some DE blades. And its been the best purchase I have made since moving to DE shaving!

I normally only shave once a week and I have always been plagued by the dreadded shaving rash aka a bloody itchy annoying red neck for a day after shaving. Since buying this Pre-Shave cream I have not had a second of discomfort

I normally dab a bit on and rub it in post shave and it not only soothes my skin but it smells fantastic giving off that old babershop smell.

Not only would I recommend buying this cream but I cannot see myself bying any other cream again, no matter the cost, unless it can offer similar performance to this cheap reliable product.
Effective pre shave treatment Review by: Brett 28/07/2012
Rating:
not sure why it's advertised as a pre and post shave cream - the label only says pre shave and I agree with that. I apply it in the shower just before getting out. By the time I dry off and prepare my shaving gear, I'm ready to apply lather and away we go. Haven't had a nick since using this stuff, but do not advise as a post shave cream. Just too much like a chest cold cream for my liking, but its all a matter of personal taste. IMO, better to use an alum block after a cold rinse then some E-shave soother to round off the experience.
The favourite part of my shaving routine Review by: Dylan 10/05/2012
Rating:
I love menthol, the smell, the feel, the bite on your skin so naturally I love this product!
I use it before and after my shave, before the shave as a way prepare the hair and after to sooth the skin and for the smell.
Because you need so little, less then a pinky nail is enough, even the 100ml jar will go for months.
This is defiantly my favourite part of my shaving routine and wish I had found it earlier.

Essential for pre shave prep Review by: Stefano 21/02/2012
Rating:
I am pretty new to wet shaving and this came highly recommended in the forums I was researching. I bought the 100ml tub and the only thing I regret is that I didn't get the 500ml tub!

Fantastic product that actually works. I can't shave without applying this before the shave. I also use this between passes or even on days when I'm not shaving to get that cool, soothing effect. I get some painful regrowth days after a shave and I find this to be very therapeutic.

The menthol provides quite a cold bracing feeling which I love. It really softens the beard and is absolutely necessary for my neck hair as this can be the hardest part for me to shave.

High quality and inexpensive product!

I initially got into wet DE shaving because I felt that my previous setup just wasn't doing enough. I wasn't exactly impressed with the starter kit either - but this cream has made it all worthwhile.

Note: Eucalyptus menthol feel/scent may not be your cup of tea.

Must have Review by: Matt 27/09/2011
Rating:
This stuff will improve your shave out of sight. I get out the shower and massage this into the beard and get a lather going. I apply it straight over the lather and this stuff is a beard melting beast. After finishing my shave I rinse with cold water to close the pores and rub a little of this in. It is fantastically soothing.

The con is that the smell is like an old school barber shop and it is very denco-rub, menthol smelling. Luckily that fades quickly but even so I could not imagine a shave without using this as a pre and post treatment.

I have recently started DE shaving. Reading a few things on this website, i purchased this and the proraso shave cream. The scent is great and the feel of this product, gives your face a nice tingle before the shave. It soften's the hair up quite good and mixed with the shave cream creates a pleasant shave. This product will definitely be kept in my shaving attire.
Try it....it doesnt break the bank Review by: Dumendra 8/03/2011

I like this because I use the proraso shave cream, but im not totally convinced this is the be all, end all of pre/post cream. It got glowing reviews on badgerandblade.com but to me so far, it is just 'good'. But hey, good is better than bad! Try it.
Cool Review by: Roger 8/03/2011
Rating:
I haven't yet tried a shave without prepping with this first, so don't know how 'good' it is in that regard.

But I really enjoy all the Proraso stuff. The scent is just pure old style barber shop.

I like the cooling menthol effect used as a post shave, I just wish it would leave my skin smoother, like a moisturiser does. It has a dry, but tacky feel to it.

But at these prices, this stuff is all good.
