It's no secret that when I visit France, I stuff my suitcase full with French beauty products. Known for cheap yet well made products in the local pharmacies, I set out to find similarily in Portugal.
Known for artisan soaps and perfumeries, the Portuguese may step ahead of the French in well-designed products that match quality. The packaging may be reason alone to stock up, as I did for gifts for friends and family at home. After trying a few out, it was tough to part with some of the beauty products purchased.
Here are 10 local Portuguese beauty products to check out:
`1. Castelbel Soaps
2. Couto Toothpaste: With an original formula, it fights mouth infections and comes in its original vintage packaging.
3. Shaving kit Ribeira do Porto: A classic shaving shop has created ultimate kits.
4. Alantoine hand cream by Benamôr: Still in the vintage packaging, this iconic product is one to keep in the purse.
5. Benamôr face cream: Again, the vintage packaging makes this product look as lovely as it works with the original formula.
6. Body cream by Benamôr
7. Claus Porto Soap
