Yes, the Portuguese know a thing or two about shaving creams. Veleiro and Top Secret just missed my elite eight creams.

Which ever one I grab works for me. But if I had to choose an order of preference, it would be:

1. Speick
2. Proraso
3. Palmolive Menthol
4. Palmolive Classic
5. GFT Limes
6. GFT

Sorry, I don't have eight.

I agree with you 100%. I posted 8 choices as they came to my mind, but believe me, there are others as well which I could have mentioned.
