The family of a Spanish fellow from one of the Iberian forums went to Italy and bought several Proraso items.
Among them, was the new Proraso red tub. Here's the photos:

Nice! Cool

I have no idea.
That one is the Italian labelled package, for the internal market in Italy.

I haven't seen yet the international version of this one (and of the blue cream as well).

Awesome! Thumbsup I've been waiting on this for a long time as I prefer soaps and loading from the tub/puck. I love the red sandalwood Proraso and got tired of waiting for the tub and bought a tube of cream, but once it's gone if this is available I'm all over it.

I assume it is Sandalwood like the red stripe tubes.

It's a little blurry, but I'm pretty sure I can read on the label, "Con olio de sandalo e burro di karite," "with sandalwood oil and shea butter."

Ludovico Martelli, owner of Proraso, only export green and white line in bowl and green and red line in tub.
They will only send outside Italy the red line translate in English and all the other languages in February 2013.
The Blue new line will be, for now, only for the internal italian market.
This information cames directely from the public relation of Ludovico Martelli.

I am considering trying the Prorasso white tub, however my children have just bought me some new bowls for my birthday, so I want to use the bowls too. Could someone who's used one of these tubs tell me whether I could use the Proraso tub to get some cream on my brush and then use a bowl to lather it up? Rather than just lathering it in the Proraso tub/jar?

You can do that Mr.Happy. Just load the brush up good and then go to the bowl. I do that all the time

Dave, thank you for that! That's great news for me, I'm going to order some today!
I presume I can apply the same logic to other tubs, like Taylor of Old Bond Street, for example? And by logic, I don't mean ordering some today, tempting though it is!

My understanding is that most people don't build their lather in the tub or bowl that holds the soap. I load and then face lather but many lather in a bowl.
