The packaging of the O Melhor is so cool that I want it just because of that. I've tried to get people to trade me some or sell me some elsewhere, but with no luck... anyone know where the best place to buy it would be without paying too much for shipping for just one tube? Also, anyone tried it and mind saying whether you love it or hate it? Cool

One of the best Portuguese shaving creams you can find,skin care wise and also,scent wise.
Its not a cheap cream,around 10 dollars,but 100 ml last you a lot.
Totally recommended.

Thanks, great reviewCoolCool Does anyone know if USA buyers are better off trying to get this from a USA vendor or having it shipped from one of the overseas vendors?

I love O' Melhor (and not just for the cool packaging). I used the O' Melhor Shave Cream and ASB yesterday (as can been seen in the SOTD thread). I really enjoy the fresh marine scent and find it caring for my sensitive skin. I'd definitely recommend this product!

Well, we will see what this is all about. I just ordered the gift set (pre soap, cream, and balm) from Traditional Shaving in Dublin.

I've been using the soap (pictured in your gift box Johnny) in the shower as a body soap. It has a slightly rough or grainy texture to it, yet it's still surprisingly gentle on the skin and exhibits the same great fresh marine scent.

Hi Ben!

That's because it's an exfoliating soap! A lot of people use it as a pre-shave.

It should have good skincare in that case. Smile

Yeah, I knew it was a pre shave soap, but I don't usually employ that kind of pre shave prep so rather than waste it I've enjoyed using it as a body soap.

I don't think anyone answered the question of the best price (shipping & all) for USA buyers... anyone know? Thanks
