Palmolive.


I've tried all of them and the Palmolive is by far the best choice of these.

For me, Arko, Palmolive or Tabac. I'd take anyone of them and be happy.

You're welcome, Brad. I recommend you to try it, if you haven't already.

My opinion is that this cream performs better than the other two. The negative aspect is that you don't have many scent options, but only one. The Arko and Proraso have enough options to choose the one that suits you best, from winter to summer scents, from sandalwood and floral to aquatic. The scent of Palmolive is green and fresh, an all year round scent in my opinion.

I think that Arko creams and balms have Parabens in the ingredients. But check it out again. If you're trying to stay away from ingredients like these, then the Arko creams may not be the best choice for you.

Why limit your selection to those three?  Think outside the box (and with North American-made products):  

•  If you are carrying the Dopp kit into a commercial airline cabin:  carry Kiss My Face Lavender & Shea in the TSA-approved tube, and Bob’s your uncle.

⦿  If you are traveling by surface transport, or the Dopp kit will remain in checked baggage, Aubrey Organics Mens Stock Northwoods brushless gel will allow you to leave the brush at home, and you will still get a first-class shave on the road.

I bought recently this cream, but I have yet to try it. It's going to be my travel cream. It comes in a nice and quality plastic tube of 100ml. I also have the KMF Pomegranate Grapefruit in the bigger packaging, it's an excellent product with fantastic intense scent and remarkable performance. Pretty affordable too.

I think you just made the best recommendation here!

Haven't tried the Palmolive cream yet but the stick is always in my bag. Between Arko and Proraso creams, I prefer the latter. But remember that the full size tubes are not TSA safe at 150mL

I've used and finished a tube of Palmolive but never replaced it. I liked it ok, but tend to prefer the Proraso creams. So for Fall and Winter, P-Red. Spring and Summer, P-Green. Never tried Arko.

I use Speick as my travel tube.  Great performance and no huge loss if there's an airport snafu.

It depends. If you like mentholated creams, I recommend you to try the Green Italian version. If not, go for the Red one.

That's why I said the Green Italian version Wink The one you have is the Classic European, not the Rinfrescante al Mentolo.
