      I've been using this product for about three years now, and have recently become interested in wet shaving, hence the review. After reading a ton of forums (Google: Wet Shaving), I realized that I was going about it all wrong. The only thing I was doing correctly was shaving after my shower. The key to a great shave is to take your time (hence an art of shaving), and lather, lather, lather, and later (see below for more a more descriptive process). I learned that one coat of lather does not cut it, especially when completing multiple passes. Wet shavers understand this, and reapply lather for follow on blade passes, and this is where this product really shines through. If you purchase the 8oz jar, you can take small amounts, and apply on your face where you need it; eliminating a lot of waste. Here is why: when you pass a razor over your face that has been lathered, the lather goes with the blade, and down the drain. If you want to go over it again, you must re-lather (just a small amount, included with a little water to help spread it out). If not, future passes lead to irritation, and an unpleasant shaving experience. However, if you pass over once, applying almost no pressure on the blade, and re-lather, and take your time (shaving slowly), you will reduce irritation, and have a more comfortable shave. My shaving steps follow, hopefully they will help you too: I now shave in layers. I use Kiehl’s “Facial Fuel Energizing Face Wash,� after my shower, rinse, and leave my face wet. (Additionally, in the shower, I give my face a good scrubbing with a wash cloth and warm water in order to lift my facial hair). I then apply a thin layer of the blue eagle brushless cream on my face (above the jaw line only), and shave one time through, going with the grain. I then rewet my face, and reapply another thin layer, and go with the grain again. I repeat this step once more taking my time, applying no pressure on the blade, and ensure that a thin layer of lather is on my face before each blade pass. I then reapply lather and go against the grain. Here is the trick, each time I reapply lather, I’m feeling for missed spots, and direction, so I can tackle against the grain. Hair grows in all directions, and this “feeling� process really helps get a close shave, and spread out the lather, ensuring a smooth drag free pass. You should know that if you feel any drag, you need only a thin layer, and the blade should pass smoothly over your face. For the neck, and below the jaw line, I repeat the same process that was mentioned above. I’ve been following this process for about two weeks and have been able to go from shaving daily, to shaving every two days. I'm in the military, and a clean shaved face is a requirement, even more so for officers. My 5pm shadow is now a 48 hour shadow, and I’ve eliminated all cuts, and irritation. Albeit, the cuts likely went away when I started shaving slower. I will note that when I first started shaving, it would take me about 5-7 mins, but now, its averages 10-15 mins, but I don’t mind because a good shave is priceless. For my conservative and economical readers, I only turn on the water to rinse the blade, and those are no longer than 5 second durations. The last step is to rinse the face with cold water. I then apply Kiehl’s Facial Fuel Moisturizer with SPF 15. This process has also improved my complexion, and this is likely due to not shaving daily, as I no longer have a need. Lastly, I will share that I use Kiehl’s Facial Fuel Energizing Scrub as well, but only once every six days (hair cut days). On the sixth day, this starts my shaving process, followed by the cleanser, then shave, then moisturize. I know that Kiehl’s seems expensive, but these products last a long time, as all you need is a dime to nickel sized amount. The 8oz jar lasts me about 3 months, and the cleaner and scrub even longer. My advice, take a little more time and care with your money maker, and just feel good about yourself. YOLO (You only live once)!

      Went on previous reviews on buying this one. This product is the worst. It sticks to your razor, I have to run the hot water at full blast to get it loose, it also sticks everywhere to my sink too. Shave I guess is OK if it was not for the blades being so full of shaving cream. Need to come up with something better! Finally just got rid of the rest of the jar.

          Comments about Kiehl's Since 1851 Kiehl's Ultimate Brushless Shave Cream - Blue Eagle for Men:

          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.

              I think this is a fabulous product. The aloe featured inside the product will help to protect and soothe the skin - there a reason aloe is called the plant of immortality. You only need a very small amount on the wet skin after you apply your pre-shave oil. Shaving cream is made to soothe the skin, moisturize it during the shaving process and help to prevent against razor burn, irritation, and ingrown hairs. After shaving, splash your face with cold water to close pores. Do not use any alcohol products that promise to prevent against irritation - it will only dry out your skin and make irritation more common. Instead use a moisturizer made specifically for after shaving. This product will make shaving enjoyable again. Bigger size in a tube please?

              I refuse to use anything but this for shaving. Nothing comes close and you only need a very small bit.

                        Overall, it is a great shave cream. The only thing is: It bothered me when I can not rinse my razor after shaving. It is hard to remove the shave cream. But I find a way to remove the shave cream. You can put your razor in the water for 24 hours+. It will easily rinse.

                            I have very sensitive skin and shaving has always produced very irritated skin, especially on my neck. Being in the military I have to shave every day and this doesn't help the situation. I have tried everything from shave oils to turning the shower to boiling and shaving in there, but nothing worked. Then a friend recommended Kiehl's and I have never looked back. I get a close smooth shave with no irritation and the bumps and redness on my neck have cleared up.

                                The difference between shaving with this cream and regular foam is day and night. No razor burn and a the smoothest shave you will ever get. Better than a Barber hot shave.

                                      This is by far the best shaving cream I have ever tried! I have tried all the other big names in shaving cream but until this one I have never gotten such a close comfortable shave. Every once in a while I will go back to my others and it never fails that I nick myself and afterwards my skin is dry. Since you only use a small amount, the tube has already lasted me 3 months and I still have plenty I HIGHLY recommend this product!
