I really enjoy the Portugese shaving creams and in honor of them thought I would post a couple of pics of my collection

Hm, didn't know there were 2 Lavandas. Did the formula change?

They are very close - but I feel a difference.
The newer one lathers more easily, the older one is more slick.....

Do you have to use all your strength to get the cream out of both? Some days it killed me to squeeze on the tube Biggrin

I need some Veleiro and O'Melhor. I wish I could use Musgo Real but it tears my face up

I have yet to try O'Melhor and Top Secret, it's definitely on the list. Out of Musgo collection I like Lime Basil and Oak Moss.

No both of mine are pretty soft - I think batch variations (how they made it that particular day at the plant) and how long it has been stored at shop will
influence greatly on how hard or soft the cream is once it gets out to the buyer.
I have 4 DR Harris creams - the Arlington and Marlborough is also soap like in substance but lathers AWESOME, the Windsor and Almond is soft and creamy and lathers a little bit less great, which puzzles me Huh

Teiste I have sold some now, to cut down to my favorites - at one point I had 70+ creams in my collection - now I have sold quite a few and I'm down to only having 50-52 creams in my collection now. I will futher cut this number down to maybe 30 or 40 during the next year or so.
My goal is to own the best of the best creams you can buy - and then only use them.....

Do the Musgo Real creams all have the same formula except for the scents? There is something in the regular cream that I cannot use as it burns my skin. And that's to bad as I loved the scent, lather, and quality of shave.

I do use and love there after shave and balm.

Yes, they have the same formula.
But can well be the scent that is causing you the allergic reaction. Some scent components and essencial oils can be allergenic to many people.
