Proraso Shaving Soap in a Bowl, Sensitive Skin
How to use:
Soak your Proraso brush in a bowl or cup filled with hot water for a few minutes before your shave. Apply a warm, damp towel to your face (or splash face with warm water) to prep your face for shaving, then apply your favorite Proraso Pre-Shave Cream. Apply another hot towel to your face for a few seconds. After the brush has soaked, gently squeeze out excess water, still leaving the brush mostly wet. Apply the brush to the soap in fast, repeated circular motions to coat the brush bristles well. Spread on your beard and proceed with shaving. Close the lid after use to keep the soap from drying out (though, even if it does dry out, it will not lose its efficacy or beneficial properties when reused). 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). To build up a rich lather, run your shaving brush under hot water for about 30 seconds, if you don’t have time to soak it. Apply the brush to the soap in fast, repeated circular motions to coat the brush bristles well. Spread on your beard, shave and rinse, following with your favorite Proraso After Shave Balm or Lotion. Close the lid after use to keep the soap from drying out (though, even if it does dry out, it will not lose its efficacy or beneficial properties when reused).

You’ll notice that our soap may take a bit more water than you’re used to, in order to achieve the ideal lather. That’s actually one of our biggest points of difference — the result of its manufacturing process — and what makes Proraso soap so special. Because it has a much lower moisture content than other shave soaps, you’ll need more water on your shaving brush (we’d suggest soaking it for a few minutes prior to lathering), and perhaps just a touch more patience at first, to achieve that signature Proraso lather: rich, dense, elastic, and one that doesn’t dry out. Once you do, you’ll really see the difference (and why it’s become such a staple of shaving culture over the last 6 decades).
