it's actually difficult to find in the USA, from what I'm seeing anyhow.

I found it on this site, which appears to be in the states, but haven't picked it up just yet.

I've been using it for a month or so, on a daily basis. Not sure where it can be bought on the States - I got a tub from connaughtshaving (UK).

After finishing a 500mL of Proraso "predopobarba" Blush, I bought a 250mL tub of Vitos just to give it a try.BlushBlush

[Image: P1050638.jpg]

It is a nice pre-shave cream, very much alike the green Proraso "predopobarba", and works well. The two products are very similar. Maybe the Proraso is a tad better, but the difference could be more psychological than anything. A little less menthol than the Proraso, perhaps, but by a small margin.

The Vitos has a somewhat different, harder texture, and should last a little longer than the equivalent quantity of Proraso. I consider it a very good value for money, and certainly would buy it again.

I am currently have both Vitos pre shave and M3. I have also used Proraso Green and White. The Vitos is good and is the cheapest of the four. The 250 ml tub is around 14$ It has a good amount of menthol though not as much as Proraso Green. The major difference I noticed is it tends to dry a little quicker on the face. I really like M3 although it is a little pricer than the other at around $13 for only 100 ml. It has a milder menthol that the other with a more medicinal scent. If you have none of these I would sauggest the Proraso Green first. It is a great value for the price especially the 500ml tub! It has the most menthol which I think is a plus for a pre shave.

I'm interested in this one as well. Regarding the availability...Italian Barber lists themselves as the exclusive North American distributor for Vitos, so that may be why it's hard to find in the States (see note in product description).

My take on the Vitos preshave is that it's more mentholated than the preshaves from Proraso. It has much more a cooling effect.

That's why I like it more after I shave.

I'm not a big fan of pre-shaves. What I ended up using mine for was to "mentholate" whatever product I was using that day. Mentholated Arlington, mentholated MdC, etc.

So if it's more mentholated than Proraso, and you like menthol, sounds like you should try it!

I keep meaning to try this with 444 balm.
