I used the cream earlier with a badger brush. It gave some thick lather after about a minute of working it in a bowl. I did try to shake out a lot of water off the brush. I just dabbed my brush in the cream a little bit and then lathered in a bowl. I only did 2 passes and I had enough for the 2 passes. Great smell. I used a Merkur Futur razor and it did clog it a bit. I dumped the razor in water a couple times to completely remove the cream. It has a nice smell. I give it 7/10. It's 5.5 oz and I paid $16 plus tax for it.
