Shaving Cream. Musgo Real.

Sold Out

Product Details

A random Pole told us that at least 45 percent of our bike-riding customers shave at least once a week. That's a huge common denominator; probably the biggest one we have. So from that point of view, shaving cream seems like a no-brainer.

For years I've shaved only with pine tar soap, in the shower near the end of it, and it works great. Then John here got me some Musgo Real ("real" means royal in Spanish, probably also in Portuguese; and "musgo" means moss). He got it for me some Royal Moss it had lanolin in it, and he knows I've a soft spot for that.

It turns out, Musgo Real is, like, the World's Best & Most Highly Regarded shaving cream, and made in Portugal. The maker, Claus Porto, is about 150 years old, and once people started shaving, Claus jumped.

If you have your old favorite shaving cream, stick with it. If you already use Musgo Real (it has its fans), then why not buy it from us? And if you shave but don't have a favorite and are open to something new, try this. It's made by Claus!

A tube is 100 ml (3.4 oz) . To make it last forever, get a brush. I've never shaved with a brush until a month or so ago, when a customer forced me to get one. He said, "an almond-sized glob of cream is all you need." It works. I was getting ten shaves when I applied it by hand, and with a brush, probably forty or so. Even after shaving, the brush is full of lather. I wish I'd started brush-shaving thirty years ago.
