Ach Brito Lavanda shaing cream

Picked up some Ach Brito Lavanda shaving cream last week and have used it a few times now. It has a nice non offensive lavender scent, face lathers easily and produces an excellent lather. The lather produced makes getting a smooth comfortable 4 pass shave with a straight razor easy. As a bonus it is not very pricey.

This morning I used some Musgo Real lavender shaving cream to compare the two. Both shave creams are made by the same company so it was not surprising that the performance of the two felt so similar to me. I'd have a hard time saying there were any important differences between the two except for one and that is cost. The Canadian online retailer that I bought the Lavanda from sells it for $11.00 CAD a tube but sells the Musgo Real lavender for $32.00 CAD a tube. At a hair under 3X the cost of the Ach Brito Lavanda I can't say that the Musgo Real is 3X better. Both are excellent shave in my book.

The same online retailer sells CF lavender shaving cream for $60.00 CAD making Musgo Real lavender shaving cream slightly more expensive as you have buy 2 tubes to get the same amount if shaving cream as in the CF container. I have had a tub of CF lavender and don't recall it being 3X better than the Ach Brito Lavada either.

Re the Portuguese creams, it's the lanolin, Bob.
I assume they still make them like that, been years since I used one of the two tubs I have left.

At some point there was a reformulation, but if memory serves well it was just that the lanolin ingredient was pushed back a bit in the list.

Stand to be corrected, though, if I am wrong in any of the above.

Very nice shaving creams all these that you mention.

I had, a long time ago, a tube of Ach Brito that was gifted to me and I can say is one of those really honest shaving products. No big fuss about it but it delivers, a bit like the Palmolive Classig shaving cream, but with a bit more pleasing scent.

Lathers up quickly, good cushioning and, what I remember most about it, excellent post-shave slickness.

I should get myself another tub for those shaves when you really need to go quickly at it.

Funny you should mention Palmolive Classic because I thought the same thing about it in comparison to Ach Brito Lavanda. I greatly admire that type of shaving product, no fuss but just delivers the goods at a very reasonable price point.

Did I help at all Bob?
I now know I will not be buying anymore Musgo Real Lavender or CF lavender as I don't see them as being anywhere near 3X better than Ach Brito Lavanda cost to performance wise. Thanks for the push to try the Lavanda.
