For soaps it's a toss up between Arko and Palmolive shave sticks pressed into a bowl for home or in stick form for travel. I don't often use creams but The body Shop's Maca Root would be it for that.

In the $10 range, it's pretty tough to beat most of the ones already mentioned. For cream lovers, I'll add "The Real Shaving Co" cream. Available off the shelf at Rite-Aid, made by Creightons, it easily performs with creams costing two to four as much.

edited to add: I see Monk already mentioned it; I agree whole heartedly......

I'll also have to admit I love "Pyrate's Cove" soaps. Not as much skin care as some of the others mentioned, but not bad for a melt-n-pour soap. At $4 a puck, I wish I had discovered them during my Van der Hagen/Williams Mug days. I always have at least one in my rotation.

If I ever had to use creams, I would go with Kiss My Face as it is readily available and quite 'natural'. However, good thing I don't have to. Biggrin

The only way I can do this is to only allow myself a single soap and cream.

Soap:     Arko

Cream:   Bigelow/Proraso green

These are the two that live in my travel kit. That's why I initially bought Bigelow -- Proraso doesn't (at present) offer smaller tubes.
Of course they're both part of my regular rotation too.
