I rarely have a nick when using this preshave cream. I'm a veteran wet shaver but just new to the Proraso pre shave potions. I've used Proraso shave cream for years. Give this stuff a try. Add it to your shaving repertoire, you won't be disappointed.
I always like a pre shave, it makes the event more enjoyable. That being said, the smell wakes you up and keeps your face very smooth. Good company and product. Fast shipping too!
