Hello everyone:

what do you think of Proraso After Shave Lotion(Green)?
1. he is does the job in terms of soothing irritation and redness, and maybe help to prevent ingrown hairs/razor bumps?
2. after using it the face is with moisturizing? , Or it just drying the face?

it is a good product. I like pitralon better but YMMV

the only way to avoid razor bumps and irritation is with a steady hand, sharp blade and very good technique.

then you will have a DFS. then alum, splashes and balm will be based on your own preference and time constraints. 

products will not solve your issues.

Second and third that!   It took me a while to learn that (duh...) but once I did it has been consistent close, irritation-free daily shaves. 

I would add that letting my pre-shave scrubbed stubble "soak" for at least a minute to thoroughly soften.

Proraso "Green" was my first really good aftershave and IMO it's quite good but many other products are great in their own right and I always have one or another varieties of Thayer's witch hazel in play.

It's a pretty decent product, but the White balm (oat and green tea) is much better performance, for me.

The green is one of my favorite aftershaves.
I also have the sandalwood splash and their balms, but for a basic, traditional splash the green. I have many more expensive and fancy bottles that aren't as good to me.

Proraso green is their best aftershave. Love the scent, love the face-feel. Excellent juice.

It's a great product but I highly recommend the After shave toning balm with eucalyptus oil and menthol. Absolutely love the way it smells and performs

Once again, I’m an outlier. Proraso Green was the first aftershave I bought in my life, five or six years ago, while in my late 50s. I immediately PIF’d it, as it reminded me of Vick’s Vapor-Rub. Then I thought about whether to try again, and decided to buy Tabac. I loved it. To me, the aftershave is the best part of the shave, and I’ve got over a hundred full-sized bottles of the stuff to prove it...

Have to agree. No aftershave can compensate for poor technique, bad razor, bad blade. Understanding what works for your own skin and beard and good technique are the pathway to a great shave. 

That being said, proraso green is a good product, but not a compelling must have, give the many other products available.

You can't go wrong with Proraso Green for only $14.  If you want more menthol, freeze your face type menthol, try Black Ship Grooming "Shiver Me Timbers."  If you  want a "medium methol" you will prefer the Proraso.
