Proraso, born in Florence, Italy, 1948 founded by Ludivico Martelli. This brand has been setting trends in the shaving world for 3 generations. It started by experimenting and innovating formulas of Pre and After Shave Cream. Embraced by Italian barbers ever since, it has grown to become one of the major brands in the world providing quality shaving products.
In this review, we will be looking at one of their Green product range - the after shave toning lotion, specially crafted for sensitive skin. All of its products under this line provide refreshing and invigorating shaving experience with pleasant notes of menthol and eucalyptus. Let’s see how it faired in our review!
Liquid Tonic alcohol-based
Packaging and Mobility
Filled in a glass bottle, weights at 100ml and capped with a nice matte black cap. Hop it into your carry on luggage with a zip bag to ensure it doesn’t leak
Suitable for Skin Type
Normal and Oily Skin Type
Old school yet refreshing scent of eucalyptus oil, reminds me after getting classic shave from a barber.
Liquid (alcohol based) like water
How to Use It
After shaving, dry your skin with clean towel.
Splash some aftershave liquid on to your palm and gently massage in circular motion on shaved areas.
After applying the aftershave lotion, it does feel very refreshing with its old school scent. It softens the skin with a slight medicinal smell. However, if you have any razor burn, you might feel a bit sting due to its alcohol content. In addition, if your skin is sensitive to alcohol, your might want to try a cream based, non-alcoholic product like Edwin Jagger’s Aftershave Lotion instead.
On another bright side, the scent is not super strong or heavy. Certain cologne with scent of aqua-based does complement it. Some amn even used this aftershave as a cologne itself by applying a 2 - 3 times a day.
Alcohol Denat., Aqua (Water), Glycerin, Parfum (Fragrance), Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Leaf Oil, Eucalyptus Globulus (Eucalyptus) Leaf Oil, Menthol, Citronellol, Geraniol, Hydroxyisohexyl 3-Cyclohexene Carboxaldehyde, Citral, Limonene, Linalool, Coumarin, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Cl 42090 (FD&C Blue No. 1), Cl 19140 (FD&C Yellow No. 5).
Overall, I feel this is a great product for normal skin type and because it really does soften the skin/beard and its natural scent. If you are looking for a quick and easy to use aftershave lotion with old school refreshing scent, this menthol based aftershave lotion is what you want to try!
