Balea Sensitive shaving cream that I picked up a while back in Germany or Austria.

Not gerenally available in North America, the cream is marketed in Germany and Austria by the "DM" drugstore chain as a low cost alternative to Nivea.
Extremely cheap at less than $1 for the 100ml/3oz tube - the scent is unremarkable but the cream performs well.

Picked up some on my last trip to Germany, hard to dismiss at less than $2 and a solid performer to boot.
I know how you feel. I always come back with a refreshed supply of Palmolive cream and classic sticks when we travel to the UK. I now have 2 brand new tubes of cream and 6 or 7 NIB classic sticks in my storage drawer.

Saturday evening - MWF.

Love those Palmolive sticks - in particular when travelling.
At 75 cents in continental (EU) drugstores hard to beat.
Picked up 6 on my last trip to Munich.

Leaves Arko in the dust (and I won't even have to pinch my nose to avoid the Arko stench).

First two passes with Taylor Sandalwood, third pass and touch-up with D.R. Harris.

Want to find out which of these two sandalwood soaps suits me better.
Tomorrow, I start with D.R. Harris for he first two passes and finish with Taylor.

I have a feeling I know the winner already.
