    Just a few days ago I was at the barbershop for a haircut and then a manicure and Kosta, my barber who’s 78 and a grand master of haircuts and old school shaving mentioned Proraso Green to me. He asked me if I ever tried it and I told him that I was using it almost exclusively for several years but I had gotten absolutely gatvol of it because it was starting to dry my skin and irritate it. He told me it had been reformulated a couple of years ago and it was completely different but I told him I really wasn’t interested. Anyway, he gave me a brand new cream tube and soap bowl free of charge and said “Try them and if you’re not satisfied then throw them out.” When I got back home I test lathered them both and I must say I was very pleased. The scent is still the same, it still has the same great lather but it’s much more skin friendly than it used to be. I used the cream this morning for my shave and it was very enjoyable!

    I enjoy the AS, but found the shaving cream contains EDTA, so is still a no go for me.

    I also have the White bowl soap and the cream as well as the Red and Blue creams. They’re all very good.

    This month I acquired a tub of the green. I had used the re branded C O Bigelow tube and missed that menthol eucalyptus scent and face feel while shaving with it. Getting solid shaves and think it's perfect for the summertime.

    Also acquired a tube of Proraso Red cream and aftershave.

    Like the scent of the aftershave. Can't wait to try the cream. But I'm going to wait until October before I do. I think it's more of a fall scent and I'm just about 90% of the way from using up all my Irisch Moos cream, that I want to finish 1st. Before I break out something new.

    I've had real good results with their Green Tea and Oat soap in the white container.

    What is meant by the "rebranded CO Bigelow"? Is Bigelow a rebrand of something else or vice versa?

    Congrats on the purchase!!





    After finishing off my Sir Irisch Moos cream in a tube. I'm using my Proraso Red in the tube.

    I haven't missed the Moos as I feel that the Proraso is better. Like the scent of the red better too,and I don't need to use as much Proraso to make the same amount of lather.

    Still using the Proraso green soap in the tub. Thought I wouldn't be using it during the winter time. But I like the eucalyptus scent and the just the right amount of coolness on my face. It just seems to be the perfect pick me up to start the day with.

    While I have a den full of aftershaves. I'm getting the urge to buy some Proraso Green aftershave to pair with the soap.

    Maybe its not "single blade" just called "Green" they do have Proraso single blade though in i think 3 other fragrances Wood & Spice, Azur Lime and also Cypress & Vetiver that all come in the large 500ml tubes
