C.O. BIGELOW. Established 1838

So if a product has been around since 1838 it's doing something right. I picked up 4 tubes of this stuff for 20 dollars at a local mall a little while ago. It's basically Proraso marketed here in America. It's the same all around. Though I did notice it's a little bit easier to foam up with the brush. That's a plus. I got over three months of shaves out of my last tube. This stuff is awesome. It's got Eucalyptus oil in it, so its has a strong smell and is very cooling to the face. It doesn't smell fruity and leaves a fresh scent post shave. There aren't any crazy chemicals or artificial colorings added, so rest assure it won't make your face break out. I haven't heard of any accounts at least. There's a link to an Amazon site at the bottom which sells it.

  16. Shaving creams should not just have a soothing and relaxing effect on one's skin but shaving creams should also nourish the skin like a water to a plant.
