    I have been using Proraso green shaving soap and have been enjoying it, so when I got a chance to order a bottle of the aftershave lotion, I took the opportunity. The box states that it contains eucalyptus and menthol. After I shaved this morning, I applied the lotion. It goes on like an aftershave splash and is not really "lotiony" at all. You can immediately feel a mild cooling of menthol and the eucalyptus absorbs into your face making for some really smooth and soft skin. The scent is light and fresh and marries well with the shaving soap. The scent does not linger for very long. If you are looking for something light and refreshing that conditions the skin, this would be a great product for you and a very good value.

    Nice review! I love the Proraso soap but have never used the aftershaves. May have to get a bottle.

    If anyone wants to put together a group buy or wants to stock up, you can get 3 bottles for under $10 each HERE.

    Just rounded out my medicine cabinet with Proraso (green tube) shave cream, Pre shave cream, and after shave. Can't wait to try the combo!

    Nice review. The Proraso green ASB is one of my absolute favourite post shave balms. Nice clean scent, refreshing. Having said that...I like all three of the Proraso balms (green, white and blue).
    btw...I find the green balm goes with just about any soap or cream scent.

    I'm hoping to do the same at some point. My favorite pre-shave balm is no longer for sale and I'm not a fan of my current aftershave balm, so I'm looking forward to trying some Proraso. Lots of choices though between green splash, green balm, red splash, white balm, and blue balm - I can't decide which one I want to try first.

    After 40 years of wearing a beard, my father started shaving. He has fell in love with Proraso green. He too likes the aftershave lotion and splash.

    One of the cheapest places I have found it is TVBshaving.com. It takes about 2 weeks to get your order, but worth the wait.

    Address corrected. My apologies.

    Are you sure that's the right link? It took me to the Television Broadcasts site, which appears to be in Chinese.

    Edit: Found it: https://www.tvbshaving.com/

    You Gents must have been reading my mind. I have the Proraso Green Shaving Cream(tube). I have wanted to try the AS. After reading the above, I will probably be ordering it after the holidays.

    I just used the Proraso green cream for the first time. The scent is unbelievably good. There are hints of similarities to a fragrance that I remember from the old days and it took me back to my childhood. I was going to opt for the blue balm since I love aloe but I could definitely go for the green splash. It looks like the bundle deal ended but if I have the funds, then I will be interested in future group buys at the same price if anyone wants to hit me up.

    I absolutely LOVE Proraso green.
    I have the pre-shave, soap tub, after shave and balm.
    You get the cool menthol with the pre-shave, then of course the soap smells just wonderful...then after you splash on the AS and take in the cool sensation and the smell, then the double whammy of rubbing in the balm. By the time I get done with my shave routine, I'm smelling good!

    It's really good stuff.

    Proraso Green AS is on the way via UPS along with a 12oz bottle of Clubman VIBR. Looking forward to my first "Italian" shave, Bolzano blade(I know, they're made in Germany), Proraso Green Shave Cream(tube), Dominello Vitali Calming Post Shave Moisturizer, topped off by Proraso Green AS. Bellissimo!

    Had my "Italian" shave this morning(see SOTD and/or 30 day). The Green AS was fantastic! The scent eludes me though. Sort of a little citrus and something else. No matter, I think it smells great!

    The Proraso Green line product is my standard Friday-Sunday shave. I love it. It makes my weekend a bit more special.

    Lovin' the Green. Think I'll use it again tomorrow, or maybe VIBR...decisions, decisions.
