a real after-shave lotion
on 21 June 2012
I bought this product recently in Italy (where it's frustratingly a lot cheaper) and have fallen in love with it and all the Proraso products.
Ever since I started shaving (many years ago!), I've always had bad razor rash and usually only manage to shave a max of every other day to give my red-raw skin time to heal and calm down again before the next 'scraping'.
But with the first shave using Proraso foam, and splashing on this aftershave, I've found my sore and red skin a thing of the past. The essential oils in the products help to slightly numb the skin making shaving an awful lot more comfortable and actually enjoyable. The very pleasant smelling aftershave is a really good astringent that you feel working right away. The smell is clean and fresh and quite subtle, others probably won't notice you wearing it.
In that regard, don't think of this as an aftershave as we tend to think of them now (expensive scents that you only use for the smell), but as an actual after - shave lotion!
Can't recommend more highly, even at this slightly inflated price (compared to Italy where it's around 6 Euro), it's worth the money.
