Proraso Pre & Post shave cream has been around for almost 60 years and it's still made in the time-honored traditional way by the Ludovico Martelli company.
This multi-purpose product can be used as a pre-shave treatment, as a post shave cream and also as a remedy for irritated skin.
To be honest, I like to use it as a pre-shave cream only.
When used as a "prep" before lathering, Proraso cream really softens and prepares the beard, protects the skin and allows the razor to glide smoothly for a MUCH better shave.
You simply have to apply a generous amount of cream to your wet face and rub in before lathering.
This marvellous and unique product works VERY well.
It's so good and effective that, here in Italy, it has been described as the "pre-barba miracolo", the pre-shave miracle.
I've started using it almost fifteen years ago and use it every day, always, for every single shave, regardless of which shaving cream or soap I use that day.
I have also tested many other pre-shave creams, oils and balms, from all over the World, from different brands and at much higher prices, but nothing compares to the superior quality of Proraso Pre & Post shave cream.
I'm currently using both versions: the Original green and the Sensitive white glass bowls.
I like to use the Original green with Proraso, SMN and all my Lime scented creams, to increase the cooling sensation I feel on my face.
The Sensitive white, equally good, is used for all the other creams I keep in my rotation.
If you have never used this amazing product, just give it a try.
You won't be disappointed.
