Now that summer is right around the corner, I started thinking about my favorite warmer weather creams. My favorite three are:

1) D.R. Harris Eucalyptus

2) Italian Palmolive with Menthol

3) Geo F. Trumper Limes

What are your favorite creams for warmer weather?

I'll second the Italian Palmolive menthol, and add Proraso green and white (verdict still out for the blue). Also, anything lime. Actually, any time is a good time for lime.

I love Speick any time of year, and Proraso Green is nice on occasion (but, at least for me, gets old really quickly). If you consider Strop Shoppe Special Edition Peppermint a cream, I'd include that too; if not, KMF Cool Mint and KMF Key Lime are excellent for the warmer months. GFT Violet and GFT Rose are spectacular any time of year, but especially in the warmer weather.

Oh, and I love JM Fraser too. Great stuff for a great price. And Nancy Boy's Replenishing Shaving Cream. A little pricy, but it's a glorious cream, and I love cucumber (actually considering offering a cucumber soap at some point in the future).

While I use primarily shaving soaps throughout the year, my useage of creams increases during the summer months. Some of my favorite creams include Acqua di Parma, D.R. Harris Arlington, Geo. F. Trumper Coconut, TOBS Jermyn Street, Speick, and the new D.R. Harris Eucalyptus.

Kent. It's like a brighter, soapier-smelling Jermyn Street plus COLD.

I don't think it's as concentrated or lathers quite as well as the more popular creams, but it's worth it.

For creams, pretty much Proraso. I have some Fijar Folgefonn that i'm drying into a croap; it's pretty icy for warm muggy weather.

Thanks, Phil for adding to my want list - never tried any of the creams you listed! Although a croap, I love Nancy Boy for a nice cooling effect. Cool

I'm expecting D.R. Harris Eucalyptus will see a lot of use.

Well, I use all of my products year round so I do not have favorites during any particular season.

I only have three actual creams, two in a tube, one in a tub.

Speick Cream
Vintage Proraso Red
D.R. Harris Eucalyptus

Now some call these creams and some call these croaps.

SMN
MdC
Boellis Panama

And I only have two hard soaps.

MWF
Speick Stick

So there you have it, the products I use every month.

TOBS Avocado, unequivocally.

I love the scent but only in the summer. I've got a new tub and a partial. At the rate I use it there will be enough for a long, long time. If it doesn't spoil. The only other cream I own is Cremo and JM Frasers because they were a good value at a moment of weakness.
