Proraso Shaving Cream Sensitive Skin
Proraso Shaving Cream for Sensitive Skin is enriched with Oatmeal Extract and Green Tea for an emollient and soothing effect. It’s the ideal way to calm redness and irritation caused by shaving.
Proraso Shaving Cream in a Tube is still made today in accordance with a rigorous ‘hot soap’-making process, during which it’s left to mature for 3 days, resulting in an ultra-rich soap that, especially with the aid of a brush, produces an incomparably thick, creamy, soft lather. It makes for a close and comfortable shave, while protecting the skin and leaving it soft and hydrated.
How to use:
Soak your Proraso brush in a bowl or cup filled with hot water for 5 – 10 minutes before your shave. Apply a warm, damp towel to your face (or splash face with warm water) to open the pores and prep your face for shaving. Once done, apply your favorite Proraso Pre-Shave Cream. Apply another hot towel, holding it to your face for 15 to 20 seconds. After the brush has soaked, gently squeeze out excess water, still leaving the brush mostly wet. Squeeze about 2cm of your choice of Proraso Shave Cream between the bristles of the brush and massage into your stubble or scruff using circular motion. Dip the tip of your brush back into your hot water and continue working the brush into your facial hair. After a couple minutes of ‘working’ the brush in your facial hair, the shaving cream turns into a creamy and compact lather that will soften all beard types, making shaving a pleasant daily ritual. Shave and rinse face thoroughly. For an optimal experience, finish with another application of your warm, damp towel, followed by your favorite Proraso After Shave Balm or Lotion.

Short on time? Apply your favorite Proraso Pre-Shave Cream to your damp face, for optimal results. If using a shaving brush, run it under hot running water for about 30 seconds (if you don’t have time to soak it). Squeeze about 2 centimeter of the Shaving Cream onto your brush, dampen face with warm water, and work the brush into your scruff/stubble. You should be able to achieve an excellent lather in about a minute.
If using your hands, work cream and water together between the palm of your hands until suds begin to form. Apply mixture into your stubble using your fingers, massaging in circular movements until a lather forms. This method also works well if you’re shaving in the shower. Shave and rinse, following with your favorite Proraso After Shave Balm or Lotion.
