The smell is highly subjective - some say it smells like expired medicine but I absolutely love it.
The recipe for Proraso's Refreshing Shave Foam, based on vegetable stearin, has been enriched with natural ingredients for a particularly rich lather that protects skin and enhances the razor's glide. Eucalyptus oil purifies and tones; Menthol refreshes and revitalizes; Glycerin increases razor glide and reduces redness. Originating in Italy, Proraso has been helping men achieve a smooth shave since 1948. Over the years, our line of men's shaving products has evolved to feature natural-based formulations without mineral oils or artificial colors. Nourishing botanical extracts and natural oils protect the skin before, during and after shaving for an irritation-free experience.
"I bought this for mornings that I'm running late and need to shave in the shower. I use Proraso shave cream with a brush and safety razor, so I knew that this was a quality product. The foam is really thick and creamy right out of the can, and I get a nice close shave for those mornings that I'm in a hurry. I would also take this along when traveling so I don't have to tote a bowl and brush with me. Would definitely recommend!"
