Good cream, poorly advertised
on 7 October 2013
Firstly, the cream itself. Nice glass jar and packaging. Typical Proraso. The cream smells nice and even before you have applied it to your face you can tell it is very slick. Glides on your face, feels slick and slippery and helps the razor glide over your face.
This cream can help you have a nicer shave and help prevent nicks or irritation. Apply this first, then your usual shaving cream.
The second issue here is the advertising on Amazon by The Executive Shaving Company, and others. They have marketed this as a pre OR post shave cream. Quite frankly, it isn't. I have tried using this as an after shave cream and is is very bad at this. It doesn't absorb well for this purpose and takes ages to rub in.
The packaging from Proraso themselves clearly state this is a PRE-SHAVE only. Seems to me that to say this is an aftershave cream is to over-sell it.
That aside, if you are buying this for what it is intended, then I would recommend it. Just don't expect miracles, it is only cream after all.
