I received a tube free when I purchased a 100-pack of Derby blades off of EBay (Shaving Factory). This is my first cream. The plastic tube is nice. It's easy to squeeze out a little in my shaving mug to make the lather. The lather was nice, thick and pretty slick. I had a good shave. The only thing I didn't like was the scent. It smells like lemon pledge for cleaning furniture. I don't like lemon scent that much anyway. The scent didn't last very long after the shave and my aftershave took care of any remaining. If I could change the scent, I would use it more often.
