    How do

    I'm off to Portugal on my jollies soon & as I've been sucked into this rabbit hole I wonder if anyone can advise of any creams to buy. I'm going to a relatively small village albeit it has a couple of big local supermarkets. Any advice on what might be available, thinking here in the UK we have Palmolive in Tesco etc

    Cheers
    Shaun

    Have a look for Lavanda Shaving Cream. I got it for €4 last summer. Its a lovely lavender cream and for the price its performance is brilliant. It comes in a pretty big tube too. I got mine in a pharmacy in Lisbon so I'm guessing its easy enough to come by.

    I was going to say Ach Brito, but that is the one Steve mentions above. Semogue, Musgo and Antiga Barbearia de Bairro are others. The latter has quite a few aftershaves and colognes, and Musgo a few too.

  4. Perfect answers from the fine gents above! @halvor and @RedSteve

    One thing I would recommend though is 444 Aftershave Balm..good post shave product if you can find it.

    Musgo Real classic is an amazing scent, I enjoy using the cream a lot.

    Not Portuguese, however, readily available; La Toja.

    The shave cream, shave stick & splash are all excellent. My stick still has the price on it 1.75 euro (from last year), very good soap.

    If you go to Portugal, try 444 balm. I know its not a cream, but it will go wondrefull with some of the creams!

    Any of the Musgo Real creams are worth buying.

    Thanks for the replies, I'm hoping to get a Shaving bowl too. SWMBO is not saying thanks though :giggle:

    A very timely thread for me: I'll be in Lisbon next week.

    Alvor, that would be my name pronounced by a Cockney, wouldn't it? :wink:

    What did you end up getting by the way, if jollies in Port over and done with?
