Can this company do no wrong?
The new Red cream could potentially become my favorite cream to date. The scent is typical Proraso until you whip it up. Nice subtle sandalwood scent, slick and plenty of cushion. It's a $20 dollar cream fot $9.

The new AS lotion is better than the original. Awesome citrus scent and makes your skin want to peel off your face to kiss you--sorry, that's just gross.

The new AS splash is very nice, but still needs menthol. I do like it more than the original, the scent seems slightly stronger--which I love--and it also lasts longer.

What's missing? Red AS splash! The smell of the red cream needs a partner and I'm ready to catch a boat to Italy to let them know it. Maybe an e-mail would be easier...

Great products at unbeatable prices--cliché I know.

I love the scent of Sandalwood, the Red sounds fantastic. I prefer the pot to the tube (which does it come in?) Sounds like I need to try some. Reminds me I have an UNUSED tube of the OLD red!

Love the idea of a red A/S!

I've got the 400ml bottles of Floid Original (amber colour), Floid Blue and the original Proraso (green). The red would look make a great addition to these already in my bathroom!

I would love a Red A/S! The cream is amazing, agreed on it being a definite favorite, I also bought the White pre/post in hopes it wouldn't have the same menthol feel and ridiculously bad smell as the Green, but unfortunately it seems I was wrong.

I'm a big fan of the Proraso green product line and they hit a home run with it. Both tube, tub, and after shave.

I still wish they would reintroduce the original red cream. That was one of my all time favorites.

Disappointing for face latherers (which I seem to prefer as of late).

I find dunking in the pot a much better way to load!

Let's petition Proraso!!!

I face lather from a tube. Put some on your finger or hold the tube to your face and dab it on your cheeks, chin and neck. You can also put it directly on your brush.
I'll still sign the petition, just to get a red AS. LOL

I squeeze from the tube directly on to my brush, then when I lift the brush to my face... it falls off! Angry

That nearly had coffee shooting from my nose.
Face lathering from a tube has its disadvantages.

I've tried to do a bit of research on this but when looking at their developing site it makes me wonder. It appears that there might actually be 3 balms? Could this be correct? The regular green, sensitive skin with oatmeal and green tea and something in a blue box. Can anyone enlighten me? Could be that they're just showing an open and a boxed version.

It would seem obvious that they would just replace the two originals but I'm not sure.

Yes, it seems they will going to launch a third balm in a blue box - the blue line will have aloe Vera and Vitamin C.

I don't really have need for the sensitive skin version but I'd like to give that new one a shot.

The sensitive skin AS lotion smells and works great. You're not required to have sensitive skin to use it.

I'm just waiting to see how much of this line that B&BW carries.

The B&BW near me only carries Bigelow and their selection is horrible. They have a larger selection of candles than mens products. The girl working told me that it "was more of a store for women". I said, "men bathe too. Maybe if you had mens bath products rather than candles it wouldn't be a store for women". "The candles sell more than the mens products." "That's because you have a horrible selection."
All of this was said in a light manner, just a fun argument.

I'll buy online. It saves me on gas money.

Bigelow is basically Proraso. I've read that the Bigelow like will be changing along with the Proraso line, just at a later date. What I haven't heard is if they'll carry all the new scents like the sandalwood.
