I used my Proraso Wood and Spice for today's shave. This stuff is great. Before this Single Blade line came out I haven't used a cream in a few years. I always preferred a puck.  Now I have been using this cream more than I ever did before. About half of my shaves. It is a real pleasure to use. Anyone who has not tried it yet owes it to yourself to do so. You won't be sorry.

Yeah, it's a good deal for the price, but it'd be nice to have smaller tubes for variety. I'd like to sample the Azur Lime and the Cypres Vetiver, but buying 9.5 oz of each in my already overcrowded soap drawer wouldn't be good. Smile

I've never been a Proraso fan, but their Single Blade creams exceeded my expectations. I find these creams to be outstanding in terms of cushion, slickness, and post shave feel, and as good as any higher priced and highly rated creams. I ordered smaller tubes of each scent from a company in Greece, for about $6 each and a fairly small shipping charge, although it took about three weeks for them to arrive. However, had I known that I would enjoy using them this much, I would have purchased the 275 ml IV bags.

It is in a tough bag. Should not be a problem. Just lay it or lean it anywhere.
The Cypress & Vetyver is the only one of the 3 that does not have menthol.

Thanks Matt.  I'll look for that.

These days, I'm enjoying my new Proraso Single Blade Azur Lime.
Also thanks to this good Italian product, in the end the Slant Project into ilRasoio community was a success.
[Image: azIDmOtt.jpg][Image: 8FpQ3C8t.jpg][Image: bnaRWKIt.jpg]

The matrix is soft and velvety, even more than the already very valid Proraso tubes.
Of an embarrassing ease to foam, even if richer and therefore requires a little more work.
Perhaps it pays slightly in the less generous yield, but the fragrance and above all the lubrication compensate abundantly.

However still an economic product with a valid q/p ratio.
Fragrance is the most obvious strength.
Although for me lubrication is the real architrave of this project.

Having the good fortune of being able to also associate the aftershave balm, the olfactory factor becomes very interesting.
In fact the cream is rich, but not very durable and with a less wide bouquet. Obviously.
With the continuity in support, the enjoyment is definitely more full-bodied.
In fact I believe I will try the lotion (colonia) to further complete this combination.

The difficult part arrives now, and in a very small part disappointing: the olfactory pyramid.
Certainly the citrus fruits are the supporting note, with a more shy orange than the lemon.
With the warmth of the skin the notes widen and the mint leaves slightly, a little more the juniper.
Which gives a particular freshness but without those cloying features of some products in the bridge's tire style.
Especially because the juniper is dry, clean, with light metallic lines ... to go well together and give balance.
The musk (NOT musk deer) is very light in the background to harmonize in a muffled embrace.
Woods and Patchouli in practice not received ... fortunately for me, since I don't always appreciate them and therefore I am lucky and happy.

Surely, a complexity of another dimension compared to the (much) simpler tubes of the Classic line.
Surely, a tip is to snort before buying.
Surely, if you like the fragrance the synergy with the balm and even more with the lotion is a gem ... better if combined !!!

The only place I've seen the 100ml 'travel' tubes of these are from Italian Barber and on the Bay. 

A bit pricier than the regular 150ml Proraso Green/White/Blue/Red offerings. 

Something to consider -
The Barber Tube of regular Proraso is 500ml - which is over 3 tubes of regular Proraso. 
The Barber Tube of the 'single blade' line is 275ml - which is really just under 2 regular tubes of Proraso  - but it does cost more vs the regular Barber tube.

I find the 'Single Blade' to be a better cream than the regular version.

I love the regular proraso.. wonderful shave and leaves me with silky smooth skin. The single blade is good, but a little bit too gloopy for me. I ended mixing with equal amounts of the white and the results are outstanding. 
I bought the larger tube as got it for a good price, but all are sold in the smaller tubes . However, the large tubes are less in volume than 2 tubs of the regular tubs and if you don't like the tube, simply squeeze it into an empty cream container, no problem!

After using proraso for last week, I can say that my skin is in good shape. Even some top priced soaps can leave my face with some red bumps.  None with any of the proraso range, but best of all is the white tub. Sometimes you read in reviews that proraso is good for the money. Proraso is way above its price.

I'm glad you mentioned that you saw the 100 ml tubes at Italian Barber. As you said they are a bit pricier but worth it to me. I ordered a tube of the Lime.
