One of the nicest soaps I ever had the pleasure of using, and one of the best for sensitive skin.

Ease of lathering: 10/10--So easy to get rich lather with this soap.

Longevity of lather: 10/10--Perfect. Multi-passes are so easy and pleasant.

General skincare: 10/10--Perfect. Gentle, cooling, and soothing.

Scent: 9/10--Very pleasant. Aloe/citrusy based.

Price: 9/10--Very reasoble in price. Available anywhere here.

Would I buy again: 10/10--Hell, yes. I always want it in my den.

This is a real keeper for me. The lather is a pleasure to work up, the scent is very enjoyable, and the skincare is A-1. I have a very tough beard and very, very sensitive skin, but this soap definitely prevents irritation and dryness, as well as razor burn. It also has a good menthol effect, although not quite as heavy as its green-bowled "brother". Highly-recommended!

Nice overview, Jeff! Proraso "Green" has never been a favorite from a scent/feel standpoint but it does make a great lather and gives a nice shave. Perhaps its tamer little brother here is worth a try.

I have always wondered if the consistency of the "tubbed" Proraso was similar to the "tubed" stuff.

Billy, try the stuff and you won't be sorry. It's not as mentholated as the Green version, but it's still mentholated enough to cause a good cooling effect. Thumbup

The tubs are a soft, but solid soap.

JAYDEE, that is a spot on review if ever I read one! I concur with your assement of Proraso White completely!

I also agree with texbilly regarding Proraso Green, The scent of the green has always put me off!

I love TOBS Avocado for all the same reasons, but the scent of Proraso White wins out over the TOBS Avocado.

I also Like TOBS Mr Taylor. It's my favorite scent but not quite as good for my skin as Proraso White or TOBS Avocado.

Proraso White is a without question my favorite soap and I will always have a tub in my shave cabinet!

If Proraso White smelled like TOBS Mr Taylor it would be the only cream/soap in my shave cabinet! That would be absolute perfection for me! Wink

As always Jeff you did a great job evaluating this product. Between you and Teiste its hard to keep up. Too bad somebody doesn't sell a sampler of shave creams/soaps similar to a razor blade assortment. What a wonderful way to try everything that is available.

Definitely put me in the camp that loves Proraso White. I also happen to like and use the Proraso Green but find the white version more nuanced. If, for some reason, I could only have one or the other it would be the white.

I have used it, but I didn't care much about it. The smell was particularly awful for me (although I can tolerate pretty well the "White pre" scent).

Great soap! Smell well now that's something different. I don't care for the smell all that much. Maybe it will grow on me. But I do love the Green soap.

Probably my favourite soft soap and something I tend to reach for more than anything else as a daily soap.
