Thread: Turn around for one minute..... (no more Proraso)

    Default Turn around for one minute..... (no more Proraso)

    Well, crap.

    I get distracted for one minute (a few weeks, a month or two, maybe...) and they quit making Proraso shave cream. Crap.

    What are you talking about? The reformulation? It's still Proraso to me.

    and if you like the old formula, it's still available at Bath and Body works under the CO Bigelow brand.

    A lot of the on-line sellers still have stock of the original.

    They still make Proraso. The reformulation is actually an improvement over the old stuff. I'm on my second tube of the new formula and loving it.

    After they got me to try "New Coke" I cast a very leery eye towards anything "new and improved". Especially stuff that was already "perfect" (You hear that, Gaston? You know who you are.)

    To improve it, did they make my mentholyptus aroma stronger?

    From what several Proraso green lovers have said about the new green formula is this a little lighter eucalyptus smell. The soap/cream is slicker but about the same menthol kick. Overall it's a improvement. I still have half a tub of the old to use before I buy the new. Can't wait to try.
    My name is Patrick and I'm a Proraso addict, and love it.

    Stock up now while the old stuff's available all over the place, and cheap. Not to mention CO Bigelow at Bath and Body.

    . . . He went around back and into the basement because he was hungry. He ate cold beans out of a can and drank some water, and then he saw the small mirror Parker had bought with the razor and the can of lather. He looked at himself and knew he had to take a chance on staying long enough to shave. He shaved, and that made him feel better. . .

    I gotta say, I personally don't like the scent of the new green as well as the old, performance seems the same to me though.
