What's different about it compared to the previous formula?

Also, is anyone selling their old proraso stuff?

I'm still waiting for both the new AS and AS lotion to be delivered. I hope they're both as good or better than the original. The new cream turned out better than the original, imo, so I'm pretty sure the AS's will be good.

mostly, it has a new look, and repalced SLS/Parabans with similar, but, theoretically better for you versions. most people like it even more than the original, from what I've heard.

The old formula is still readily available.

They took out the allantoin and PG, and added eucalyptus oil and glycerin.

Old Formula:

Alcohol Denatured, Aqua/Water/Eau (Water), Propylene Glycol, Parfum (Fragrance), Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel Extract), Allantoin (Comfrey Root), Menthol, PEG 40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Geraniol, Linalool, Caramel, Blue 1 Lake (CI 42090) (CI 42090), Yellow 10 Aluminum Lake (CI 47005) (CI 47005)

New Formula from a post here at The Shavenook from Joe @ Italian Barber:

So the scent lasts longer, but does it smell any different?

I've used the new A/S and A/S cream and love the changes.
The A/S splash is a bit stronger on the scent and it last a good while; which I love.
The A/S cream has a citrus scent now and it's great.
Of course both products still work as intended.
IMHO, they have improved their already fantastic line of products without changing the price.

Since I started shaving with a DE the original Proraso products have commanded a place in my shave den, good to know that the new range is most likely going to be well received too.

Great to hear the scent is the same. Is the menthol cooling about the same as well?

Aaron, the menthol to me is the same but the sent is a little more stout and lasts longer. I'd say it's better.

I tried the new splash on one side and the old splash on the other. I prefer the new product. Gave the almost full old bottle to my son.

Hey Johnny does the new stuff feel like it conditions your face better than the old? I think it does. Need more input on this though.
