You don't know where
to find something?
Why locals love it
I must say, it’s one of my favorite kinds of shops, because when I need something and don’t know where to buy, I just go to a drugstore. The owner probably knows all of its clients, usually elder people that prefer this type of service more personal. It’s possible to find a big variety of beauty items and also cleaning products.
Why you should visit it
You will find here Old Portuguese soaps with a pretty package, very nice shaving brushes (if you still shave in the old way), but then you can also find strong detergents and the famous WD-40. Regarding the soaps, there are some uncommon like: donkey milk or sulfur. There is one called Mariposa that comes in a very nice box, it’s a nice gift.
You can buy the nice soaps in other shops, pay attention to the price, usually a drugstore sells cheaper, because it’s not a touristic shop.
