Just curious to see if any U.S. vendors are carrying the Proraso blue shave cream yet?

I'm also curious. I saw a thread a while back discussing its availability in Italy, wondered how long before it hit our shores.

No one has it that I can find, not even the European sites

Joe at Italian Barber will have it in a month or so if I understand correctly. I hope to have it in about 6 weeks

If green is menthol and red is sandalwood, what is blue supposed to be, lavender?

That would be great - but it's actually anise scented. YUCK!

I hear that it has a menthol effect also, although I have no idea how strong it is.

I thought the Blue was going to be canned foam only?
Will there be a tubed cream as well?

It's been there for a little while now...slowly making it's way across the Atlantic.

There is a blue now? Jeez, I am still waiting on Red in the tub, I know I am probably in the minority but primarily being a face latherer I much prefer tub over tube and thought I read somewhere that they were was going to be a tub version. Hmm..Anise scented, not sure if I have ever smelled Anise, to my knowledge anyway.

Anise = black licorice! I'll bet you've smelled that one. Biggrin

I can't imagine the Blue version having menthol on top of an anise scent but I guess....why not? I'd be happy without menthol anyway because we already have the other version with menthol.
The Blue anise should compliment the menthol-eucalyptus and sandalwood very nicely!
