Am I able to buy Milkshake hair products in Lisbon. These are usually sold in salons.

I've been looking around various shops here in Lisbon for those two brands of skin and hair care products. Is anyone familiar enough with them to tell me if they are offered here?

In the UK I always bought Boots Soltan sun cream because of the 5* UVA and B ratings. Can anyone recommend an alternative here? Thanks

We're here in Lisbon for a long visit before our final move and hope someone can help us find a good class for Portuguese language lessons and some cooking courses.

I've just returned to Lisbon from 2 years of being away and my local salon is closed. Can anyone recommend a good salon for waxing (bikini, upper lip, brows, legs)? I've got fine, blond hair but still annoying! Need to find someone who understands that just because it's the hair's not black, I still need a good job done. I live near Praca do Chile but am pretty flexible if it's a fantastic recco. Thanks!

Hi. I haven't been here long and I need some new glasses. I don't speak much Portuguese so I need an optician that can speak some English. Can anyone recommend one? Thanks.

I previously requested details of decent hairdressers and was recommended one in Cascais. I see from the web that there is also a Tony & Guy in Cascais, can anyone tell me if they have used this branch and if so were they any good?

My wife and I are thinking of moving to Portugal. We now live in France and have grown tired of the long cold winters. Our only concern is the quality of health care available in the area around Coimbra. The basics: I am 68, my wife is 59. We both have UK citizenship and are covered, in France, by the superb French health service (E121 etc.) which is arguably one of the best in Europe. My diabetes medication (Lantus, Velmetia etc.) costs are covered 100% here and other medication is generally covered up to 65%. I checked on the Portuguese NHS site and believe these costs would be covered in Portugal as well. We don't have a language problem as my wife is Brazilian and speaks fluent Portuguese and I can get by quite well with the language so would not necessarily need English speaking doctors and dentists. I am particularly interested in the experiences of anyone with type 2 diabetes and would welcome any comments, pro and con, about the standard of health care in northern and central Portugal.

My RA was not flaring up until recently but is now pretty bad and I'm without any meds or even a physician. I am hopeful to find anyone who might know of a support group, online or otherwise here in the Lisbon area.*Rheumatoid arthritis (RA)

A buddy of mine has told me about a fitness and game program you connect to your TV. Can't remember the name and hope someone here knows what I mean and where to get one.
