Most Helpful Positive Review Spoiled by this Shaving Cream
I have been using this product for some time now and I've been spoiled. Due to my short term memory I forgot what it was like to shave like a regular human so, I thought I would save a buck and buy a popular shaving cream at the grocery store. After 2 days of shaves, my skin was drying out, getting increasingly sensitive and I could not get the close shave I was used to. My facial moisturizer could not take that scratched skin feeling away. I had to stop by Keihl's at lunch today and buy more of their shaving cream. There was no way I was going to go another day with my face feeling so wrecked. And let me tell you, tonights shave was soothing.
I gave the shaving cream 5 hearts on value because I've been able to get close shaves with single blade disposable razors. The cream works so well I don't have to use those expensive razors.
A tip on use would be to apply the cream only to the area you are going to immediately shave. After a couple strokes and a rinse of your razor, apply cream to the next area or re-apply to the same area as desired. Basically, don't apply to your entire face at once. You will use less and get better performance from the cream when it's freshly applied.
Most Helpful Critical Review wasnt impressed
I have to be honest i really wasnt impressed with this and i made the mistake of buying two since theyre on sale and i thought it would be a great deal.. I thought the application/coverage couldve been better i had such a hard time trying to blend it in so it didnt have blotches or lines around my face/hair line area and it just felt goopy on my face -though it did dry pretty good it still felt like a had a layer of film on my face all day- The MAIN reason i bought this was because it was a tinted MOISTURIZER but really if anything it dried my skin out and before id even put it on i exfoliated and put on my usual pre-moisturizing lotion/serum because i tend to have such bad dry skin. I think ill just stick to my light foundation its very smooth and the liquidness is easier to blend/work with.

Great product but there is always alternatives to bad company decisions...
No tub, no purchase
Longtimecustomer2020 from New York, NY, USA
I have been using what was a fantastic shaving cream for years. I use a lot, and I will only buy it in the larger quantity tub. Please find a way to bring that back, as I'll be buying other brands until then.
Time to switch brands

I have been a loyal user of Khiel's shaving cream tub for over 10 years to find out has been discontinued, . After carefully reading others' feedback looks like the brand is going into full mainstream mode.
Not Good for Oily Skin
richdatdude from New Orleans
This cream does not lather well which causes you to use more than necessary. I believe this is what causes the product to make my head glisten like a disco ball hours after a shave. My head will bead up with sweat & oil just from sitting indoors. Lets say I shave following a shower before bed..After washing my head free of the residue, my head would look & feel good. But once I wake up the next morning and do a few chores around the house, my head becomes super greasy without even performing strenuous work.
PLEASE BRING BACK THE TUB
LeahK from Cincinnati, OH
This is the only kind of shaving cream my husband likes but he used the TUB. The tube doesn't let him apply it near as easily. Come on Kiehls! Get with it, read these reviews! BRING BACK THE TUB!
Bring back the tub!
NYCQuarantine from New York, NY, USA
While the product works great, I add my voice to the dozens before me asking for the tub to be brought back - for starters, it is so much easier to apply from the jar rather than the tube! I will probably have to research some competitors after my current supply is used up since the company is clearly not bringing the beloved tub back despite all the negative customer feedback :(
End of 10oz shaving tub
Ultimate from NY
I have been using the shaving cream for 15yrs the new formula and tubes are terrible. Its a water down version must use more of product to achieve same results I urge you to bring it back its certainly missed.
PrettyDirty from Texas, USA
I tried using this three different ways and never got good performance out of it. I tried with a brush (I know it's brushless but I've used brushless creams with a brush before and it worked fine) and it all just absorbed into the bristles and nearly ruined my brush. Then I tried dry like the tube says to and it just clumps on the hair and doesn't coat it. My razor tugged and wouldn't cut hair. Then I tried wet and was finally able to shave but it clogged my razor super quickly. I had to rinse after nearly every stroke.
Don't waste your money. A can of barbasol would work better than this. Soap and water would work better than this. The only positive is it doesn't irritate my skin at all.
Wonderful product but please bring back the large tub.

I had been beeen using this shave cream for over 7 years and loved it. Please bring back the large tub - I don't buy products with single use packaging anymore.
Where's the tub size
DCDOC54 from Palm Springs CA
Great product . However , bring back the tub size!!As a senior citizen it's a lot easier to use a tub vs squeezing a tube
BRING BACK THE TUB
Edddie from Indianapolis, IN, USA
How many loyal customers need to post it on here? I use a brush and the tube is not cutting it. This has been going on long enough. Maybe if you begin to lose customers (lost me on this one...no tube) you will bring it back.
TUB RETURN... it's time already
secondsetmaze from New York
Here's one more tub request... as if there haven't been enough comments and indicators that customers want this product in 250ml size. Not to mention the desire for less plastic and waste.
I used my empty tubs to build a sturdy desk for my "office" since I have been quarantined and working from home. The chair that I am crafting from empty tubes is flimsy and offers very poor lumbar support.
Please bring back the tub - my back aches!

LOVE this product but not going to buy a bunch of tubes and generate a bunch of plastic trash.
Amazing product! But, please bring back the large tub!!!
Team25 from California
I rarely write reviews. I've been using it for years but will have to use it less often because the price is so much higher for the tube versus the tub per ounce.
Please bring back the tub.
Love the product but please bring back the 8.4 oz tub!
ChipinMI from Northville, MI, USA
The tube is fine for travel but I much prefer using the 8.4 oz tub for daily use. I've been using it for years. Not happy it's no longer available. Please listen to your customers and bring it back.
Bring back the 8.5 oz tub!
bret from New York, NY, USA
Went to order and I see you no longer make the tub in the blue eagle version! Please bring it back or I am going to be forced to switch to another brand. Not happy!
Where?s the 8.4oz tub?!

I usually buy 2 at a time and when I went to reorder it?s not there?!?! Bring it back and market it better!!!
What Happened To The 8.4 oz jar?

I've been buying and using this shaving cream in the 8.4 oz jar for around 30 years. Why is it no longer available?
Looking for the tub
Alan1234 from Seattle, WA, USA
Just went to reorder and discovered you have discontinued the tub size. Like the others posting here, I?m very disappointed. This is a great product and should be available in an easier-to-use and larger container.
Bring Back the Tub!
CBPE from Baltimore, MD, USA
We're all telling you the same thing. Eliminating the tub was a mistake! I use a brush to apply and am forced to buy the tube then squeeze it into the tub to apply. Senseless design change. Please offer the tub size again!
Bring Back the Big Tub!
natebernstein from undisclosed
I love the Blue Eagle shave cream and have been using it for years. Very disappointed the large tub size has been discontinued. Not only is that size better from a need-to-reorder standpoint, it's also easier to use. When you don't squeeze enough out of the tube on first try and need to apply more, you either need to use hands that are slippery from applying shave cream to squeeze more out, or rinse and dry them before doing so. With the tub, you can just reach in with a couple of fingers for more and ensure you always have the right amount, rather than too little or too much. Five stars for quality of product, minus one for inefficient/inconvenient packaging.
Raoul from undisclosed
I have been buying the White Eagle shave cream in the 8.4 oz tub for as long as I can remember. I can't protest strongly enough that you've discontinued that size for the White Eagle! The tub is extremely easy to use, certainly more than having to squeeze shave cream out of a tube.
And worse, you don't even offer the White Eagle shave cream in the economical 10 oz tube, as you do with the Blue Eagle.
I can't believe I'd ever say this, since I've loved the White Eagle cream, but I'll now be buying my shave cream from another supplier. Very bad customer relations move on your part.
SweeneyDesignBuild from Burlington, VT
Surprised that a company as thoughful and forward thinking as Kiehl's would take one of their best products that I have been using for 30 years and change the packaging on it out of the Blue.
I hope they will reconsider their decision to get rid of the 8.4 oz tub and bring it back online. It really was a very easy way to shave, was economical in less packaging and provided for a really wonderful texture. It seems the new Blue Eagle is different in texture to be able to squeeze out of the tube.
This decision will definitely push me to look for a replacement.
