    Default Proraso Soap Vs. Proraso Cream

    Anyone use (or have used) both? What do you prefer and why??

    Used both, prefer the soap --simply just because I tend to prefer soaps in general. The soap is (marginally) cheaper in use. Frankly, I don't think it matters, both are essentially equivalent.

    I'm not at all fond of either, but I have a mild preference for the cream. I think it lubricates better.

    I use both and actually sometimes at the same time. I often use the ProRaso soap with another cream, such as Trumpers Rose. I like the combination.

    I have both and can't tell the difference between them other than the time it takes to lather. Given a particular brush it takes longer for me to lather w/soap than the cream. Other than that, they seem identical but I'm not a picky man. I like the cooling sensation Proraso offers.

    I have both, like them both. Sometimes both at once (superlather: cream on face, soap on brush). It's the only mentholated stuff I have (plus, eucalyptus is even better than just menthol, IMHO), so I tend to use it more in hot weather.

    I have both and like the soap better. I prefer the lather I get with the soap.
    As always; YMMV.

    Same here. I also find that the soap provides better lubrication and protection from nicks.

    Without time constraints, this morning I made a 4-passes with the soap. I seldom make 4 passes. First time my Kent BK4 touches Proraso. Closest shave in my life.
    Razor: Fatboy, Slimboy, Tech, Knack.
    Brush: Kent H8, BK4, Omega boar (small, big).
    Soap: Woolfat, C&E Nomad, Proraso Green, Tabac, Cella.
    Cream: Valobra Mentolo, TOBS Sandalwood.
    Aftershave: Floyd Blue, Proraso Pre-Post, Dopobarba, Crema.
    Other AS: Chimique Clinique, Capucci, Cerruti 1881.
    All items top to bottom in my taste- YMMV
