I know there are many Proraso Green fans here, and at one time, I was one also. Then for a long time, I just could not stand the stuff. Maybe it was the scent, maybe it was the skincare, I don't know. Recently Ludovico Martelli, the producer of this shaving line introduced a new reformulation of the Green version, and let me tell you it is wonderful!

Ease of lathering: 10/10--A small amount of cream explodes into fabulous lather.

Longevity of lather: 10/10--So stable and solid. Multi-passes are no problem. Great blade glide also.

General skincare: 9/10--Just as cooling, but the moisturizing is so much better now.

Scent: 7/10--The same eucalyptus/camphor/menthol deal as before. It's ok.

Price: 9/10--6,50$ CAD won't bust your bank account. A 150 ml tube will last a LONG time.

Would I buy again: 10/10--Oh, for sure!

There you have it - Proraso Green and I are the best of friends again!

I got a tube shortly after it became available thru Italian Barber, and I'm in love with the stuff! It performs wonderfully, and I, for one, really enjoy the scent. Always leaves me feeling cool and refreshed in the morning.

Thanks for your inputs about this new shaving cream.
C.O Bigelow is carrying it right now too (the small tubes,the big ones are still having the old formulation).
I find it to be better than the old shaving cream/soap so its a plus for Martelli.
