wayne z: I've tried every brush shaving cream. this stuff is just on another level. It feels almost too good. Aug 18, 2014
Rodney A: I have found that application of shaving cream/foam with a brush to be my favorite method. This shave cream is gentle and clean allowing for delicate shaving while providing excellent protection. What it is not is needlessly gloopy, foamy, or heavy - qualities which only give the appearance of protection without actually protecting your skin. Far superior to traditional brush soap which can dry the skin. Aug 11, 2014
Brian R: I love this stuff. This is the first modern shaving cream that I've found that is formulated to make a nice lather with a brush. You just need a tiny dab of cream on the wet brush, and as you're brushing the cream onto your face, make nice circles until it lathers up properly. Great shaves. Aug 10, 2014

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Francis B: No, it doesn't come in a larger size. I think that is probably a good thing since the cream seems to thin out a bit toward the end of the container. Probably something to do with the heating and cooling effect of just being in a steamy bathroom. Anyway, this is a great product. They stopped selling it for a while and I could not find a comparable replacement, so I for one am glad it is back. Nov 24, 2013
Reply to Francis Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Eric D: No, but if you use it properly this size will last a long time. When using a brush you only need a small amount on the tip of the bristles and when you work the brush the cream will expand like whipping cream. Nov 24, 2013

Catherine B: No just the one size. But it is a great product. It went away for a bit, I was so disappointed, coul not find anything like it. Am so glad it's back. Nov 24, 2013

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Robert W. S: Sorry, but I never used the "old" Lite Flite Shave Cream. However, I can tell you that the "new" Lite Flite Shave Cream is far superior to Clinique, Origins, Jack Black etc.

In my opinion, it is the best shaving cream I have ever used…..and I do use it with a badger brush!

RC W: The lather can be controlled as you prefer with a brush and can be adjusted to the thickness of your beard that day. Also a brush is one of those cool and rare male-grooming rituals that connects us with the past. Yes, I sometimes use the cream without a brush and have very good results.
