Classic Review by: TS 13/12/2019
Old school pre shave. Strong, refreshing scent, lots of menthol. Softens the beard as advertised.
FANTASTIC PRODUCT Review by: Chris 19/02/2019
Great pre-shave cream, makes shaving a breeze and your skin will feel refreshed after. Great value.
Great for Sensitive Skin Review by: oodles 8/03/2018
I was put onto Proraso 10+ years ago and haven't looked back. My skin use to dry out after shaving with supermarket shaving gels, terrible. This is intended to be a pre-shave cream, but I find it sufficient to use for a full shave. pro tip, after shaving emulsify and rub on face, keeps the hydrated & smooth all day. Awesome service from Mens Biz, not easy to find and received next day!
PRORASO PRE-SHAVE CREAM: GREEN, 300ML Review by: Jerry 29/05/2017
This Pre shave cream is just the best. It works better in my opinion than some of the more expensive examples that I have tried. The service from mensbiz has simply been the best. I will use them for all my DE shaving needs!
Must have for head shaving Review by: Gav 24/01/2017
This is the lubricant strip for safety razors allows that second or third stroke to glide over the skin with no dragging, especially on the back of my head which I do last, and prior to using this product I'd have to re lather that area.
What a great product! Review by: Anthony L 11/10/2016
I have started using this product both pre shave and post shave, and I am in love with it! Fantastic refreshing fragrance and feel on the skin. It really does make my face feel alive. You do not need much, about a third of a teaspoon. I guess you could use this with any shave soap, but pairing it up with the Proraso green soap is perfect for me. PS I also bought the red Proraso equivilent product, and im happy with it as an occasional alternative product, but if I could only buy one, I would go for the green every time. Enjoy.
Great product Review by: MattJ 8/06/2016
A really great product, I find the scent to be quite 'bracing' but its one that I really like, and cant really imagine shaving without it, its such a good pre shave.
Works as advertised Review by: Matt 7/06/2016
Using this in conjunction with a soap and brush results in the best shaves I've managed at home. Makes my face face feel refreshed. Will buy this again. Great value.
Happy Review by: Shane 19/04/2016
Very happy with product. Great fragrance.
Very nice Review by: Lee 30/03/2016
Fantastic cream and really does help the shaving process.
Soothing Review by: Esquire 17/02/2016
Personally I use this as a post shave as it has a great cooling and soothing effect. Driving to work with the window down and getting some airflow onto the face after applying a thin layer of this feels super nice.
I can't see the benefits of using it as a pre-shave, but each to their own.
Smells good, shaves great Review by: Manchoon 14/12/2015
Before breaking out the straight razor a thin layer of this over the skin softens both hair and skin enough for a really close shave. It smells a treat as well and leaves a great refreshing finish.

I like to mix a little with my shaving foam for a sexy lather.
FANTASTIC! Review by: Charles 8/12/2015
Have been using the Proraso as a pre-shave for several years. Provides a fantastic base for lathering, the menthol gives it a great kick. Great product, and the larger 300ml tub is even greater value.
Love it!! Review by: Simon 10/11/2015
I use this as a pre and post shave.
Pre shave it provides a nice, slick surface and prepares my face for a smooth and easy shave.
Post shave it leaves my face feeling cool with a refreshing menthol and eucalyptus kick.
Love it Review by: brendan 21/10/2015
This product is the best I've tried, and great value too.
Excellent Review by: Eric 16/07/2015
If every product on the market performed as well as Proraso Pre-Shave Cream, the entire field of product liability law would go by the way of the witch and the dodo.
This product rocks! Review by: Kon 21/09/2013
This stuff is really the bees knees! You will pay about $40 for a 300ml container however it will last you forever as you only require a very small dab of this stuff. I use it as both a pre and post shave and it hasn't let me down once. Go on, surprise yourself!
Best pre and post shave balm in the market Review by: Dominic 27/08/2013
I've been using Proraso Pre Shave for close to 10 years...its hands down the best stuff I've ever used in regards to shaving....wet face and apply lightly, followed by shaving cream. Put on after shave as well - very good for skin as well as cooling. A top product....will be likely using it for life.
Love this stuff! Use it daily! Review by: Macri 26/05/2013
This is the best bang for buck aftershave balm I use! Nice refreshing feeling after shaving. Probably best used in simmer as it has a nice cooling effect.

Scent is also nice. Smells s bit like "Vicks" but has a powdery smell about it.

Use sparingly as a little goes a long way. Too much and your face will seem white.

Have never used as a pre shave but is supposed to double as pre / after cream.
Just a WOW product Review by: Chairman Miaow 22/04/2013
I've been DE shaving for some 5 years now and have fine tuned my go to prods to the extent that I never expected a WOW product, but this Proraso as a pre-shave just blows me away. By WOW, I mean a product that produces a significantly better shave, rather than 'feels' great or 'smells' great or whatever.

My usual routine is soften the face in the shower, then use an oil in winter (TOBS) or a light prep (Aesop) in summer. Expensive, both of them. Then lather with TOBS (L&L or Mr T's) and shave with Merkur or Derby blade. Finish with a Bay Rum in summer and a TOBS gel in winter.

Damn good shave, baby-butt smooth. Happy little camper.

Then I read the reviews for the Proraso as a pre-shave and thought 'why not'? WOW. I wash my face then spread on the Proraso whilst in the shower. Lather with the TOBS and shave away. The first extra smoothiness and closer all over shave I put down down to extra care and attention on my part, but by the end of the week when the shave was still noticeably better... well, WOW.

Be generous with it. And at this price, why not? I promise you an exceptional shave.
Fantastic stuff !!! Review by: Bazinga 9/10/2012
Just received, just used, just amazing !!!! Can't believe how good this stuff is... Used prior to Proraso shave cream and afterwards.. Feels amazing !!! Proraso, you have a new fan...
Great product Review by: Mosco 25/07/2012
I use it mostly after the shave but at times before as well.Smells great, not as in a French fragrance kind of way but a fresh mint/pine/morning smell, which lasts only for a little while so wont interfere with your cologne, Sprads really easily with just a little dab and leaves your skin feeling awakend and fresh. Recommended.
One of the Best post-shave thingys Review by: Roger 8/03/2011
I gave an opinion on this elsewhere, but that was a while ago. Liked it a lot then, and even more now I use it properly. Pre shave it's 'meh' for me, now my lathering is good. Post shave, it's excellent IMO. I used to use way too much, hence my experience of it being tacky. You don't need much at all. I apply it with damp hands, it absorbs beautifully and gets the menthol going. Really works fast on burn or irritation, so is great for new DE shavers. Moisturisers very well too. I use this on weekend shaves, when I don't want to use up my AS lotions.
Great stuff Review by: Tim D 8/03/2011
This is the subject of a lot of debate - some say it's most useful solely as a pre-shave prep, others say it's best only as an aftershave balm. While I'm probably leaning towards the latter view, that is only due to the concern that mentholated products ever-so-slightly numb the skin and prevent me from feeling a close shave as I'm going.
However you use it, this product will last for years and will give you one of the most clean, crisp feelings when you apply it to your damp face.
Along with my brush, razor, lather bowl and soap, this is the only product that stays permanently on my bathroom sinktop. 'nuff said.
Too Good Review by: Adi 8/03/2011
I have tried several kinda after shave products but the kinda satisfaction you get by this is unmatched.
Excellent post shave cream Review by: osic 8/03/2011
This stuff is great, the eucalyptus and menthol leaves a refreshing tingle and its very soothing for the skin. You only need the smallest amount; the tub will last for ages! Excellent product at an excellent price.
Invigorating Review by: Steve 8/03/2011
An absolutely fantastic high quality product that will leave your skin feeling clean and refreshed. The menthol and eucalyptus smell wonderful and the 500ml tub is amazing value for money. I have no reservation highly recommending this product.
