I use both of these products. The pre-shave is extremely similar to Noxema medicated cream. I do feel like I get a better protection with it. Don't get it in your eyes. It's highly mentholated.
The Proraso Dopobarba after shave lotion is a great companion to their green after shave, albeit without the sting of alcohol. The scent is lemon/lime and refreshing in that Italian sunshine way. I find it very pleasant. It leaves my skin very smooth and 'glistening'.
I can recommend both of these products heartily.

They say you can use the cream for an after shave balm, but I prefer to just use it as pre-shave cream. I message it in to a damp face. Both the cream and balm are excellent products.

Now, I do still have and use the older formulation.

I use the preshave every day, a little bit goes a long way with it. I'm not sure how well it works because I've never not used it, but I find most people seem to say they notice a difference when they skip it.

I'm really looking forward to the release if the "green" balm here in the US soon. I'd like to hear members' thoughts on it who have tried it. I wish I still had a few bottles of the old balm around, especially for summer.

I was unaware of this. I assumed the green line would of been the first products out, especially with the popularity of the green soap, cream, and after shave. Glad I still have some of the original left.

My understanding is that when they reformulated, the only products in the "green" line were as follows: pre-shave, cream, soap, and splash. But recently they released a green balm in Europe and it should be coming to the US soon (I hope):
