    Default Ach Brito Lavanda shaving 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.

    Resurrecting this old thread to say the I have been using the Ach Brito Lavanda shave cream this week and continue to be impressed by it. Impressed enough not to buy CF lavender again as for me it is just not worth it. Can't believe it does not get more play on the forum.

    You might want to try the Ach Brito Lavanda EdC too. It's not overpowering and more like an AS for longevity. Not too pricey either for a 200 ml glass bottle.

    I got a sample of the Lavanda and quite liked it. Not sure I would be getting in the future. I agree that I would get it again over CF. I have the lavender, but I think it's more of a nostalgia thing for me. I dont' reach for it much and I think the Lavanda performs as good or better.

    Agree wholeheartedly.

    As good as it is, Ach. Brito Lavanda shaving cream is not as widely known as it deserves and stocks from some vendors may be let’s say ‘dated’ and the cream may have thickened to the point that it is hard to coax out of the tube.

    Counterintuitive as it may sound, it helps to put the cream in a fridge for a night and the next day it will flow much easier. The cream will hold this consistency for a while and if it does thicken again, just repeat the process.
    The cream does not otherwise deteriorate by the thickening, will perform as well as ever, and there is really no reason to toss the tube just because the cream has a thicker consistency.

    Not that I need to resort to this trick any longer.
    Since my retirement last year we have moved to Portugal where local shaving creams are recently manufactured, cheap, and bountiful....
