I finally managed to get to a Target store. I purchased some Proraso shave cream, shave soap, and preshave.
I tried the preshave and the cream first as I am more familiar with creams. It was...interesting. I managed to get a good lather even though I was just using my old boar brush.
I found the scent to be interesting. The cream provided good lubrication and after the shave it left my face feeling quite cool and refreshed.
I have to say I like it a lot and looking forward to trying the soap tomorrow. I will have to pick up their aftershave and try it too.
I have one question and the preshave though. The instructions don't actually say whether one is supposed to rinse it off prior to applying the shave cream/soap. I did but was unsure about this point. So, does one rinse it off or apply the cream/soap over top of it?
