A wet shavers' classic, mainly for summer months
on 23 July 2011
A nice and refreshing shave cream that comes from a manufacturer that has given us a number of classic wet shaving products since the 1920s. Unfortunately does not contain lanolin (as the old formulation of Omega shaving cream did) but still a great product overall. Latherability is very good, scent is menthol/eucalyptus and very fresh (perfect to really wake you up in the morning), moisturizing properties are good and the price is not bad.
A shave cream that will certainly not disappoint you. Should you like to get something 'one level up' performance-wise in exactly the same scent and efficacy, you would have to buy the Santa Maria Novella shave cream (in 220ml tub) that comes from the same factory, but also has lanolin added to it. You would however have to pay x7 times what you pay for this Proraso tube but certainly the difference will not be noticeable for a such a price hike.
Proraso shave cream - Recommended.
