I used Kiss My Face 4in1 with a brush for years. I really like it. Never tried it brushless. 
Nancy Boy, HIRSH Deluxe Shaving Cream, Truefitt & Hill #10 these are brushless or can be used w/ brush, I use with
a brush and they work great.

The cream you like the most. All creams can be used brushless. I like Speick and Nancyboy. Only time to use a truly brushless cream is if you wanted to do a waterless shave.

Before I got into traditional wet shaving, I for many years was using Dermalogica & Shiseido brushless creams. I might buy a Shiseido again in the near future...loved it lots.

I like Cremo Cooling and Lush 5 o'Clock Whistle.  Lush doesn't get much love here but I believe it is great.  It doesn't lather, but is very slick and has a great post feel.  The scent is unique, but I like it.

Sorry I didn't answer earlier. Just saw it. I think Truefitt & Hill #10. Great scent I think. BUT Kiss My Face is really good too.
I can't choose just one !

Yes.  I did a brushless shave with Asylum English Collection Shaving Cream.  I first spread a thin layer of the cream on my face with my fingers.  Then I wet my fingers and rubbed them on my face for about 30 seconds.  While I did not get a "lather" as I would have with a brush, the resulting shave was fine.  I doubt my shave would have been better with a cream designated as "brushless."

It is hemp-derived (!) and quite slick/effective.
I like it because it's semitransparent and allows me to maneuver around the mustache.

I recently saw another one called Yes To at a Marshall's...a few tubes of it, in fact.
It looked like a good product, but I passed on it because I have plenty of Andalou left in that tube.

I circled back to this thread because I am getting down toward the end of the tube of Andalou. I only just noticed this query.

I continue to think highly of its slickness, and being able to see the lines of mustache and beard is quite helpful.

It works well with shavettes.

Oops, I forgot to post my results from SMN and Mollé. Mollé isn’t slick enough IMO, and neither is SMN to shave with, however SMN is excellent as a pre-shave and post shave. 

I’ve also since tried Feather Hi-Shave Moist Gel, a Japanese product. Extremely slick, extremely good post shave (I mean really good), and economical. I got three 230g tubes for $21 delivered on the Bay. Works well as a pre-shave too.

Speaking of gels -- though that is a tangent -- I remember buying the Gatsby Cooling Gel in Japan (it is available in my local Japanese stores too).
I liked it.

Gatsby also has a Moist gel.

The brand belongs to Mandom, producers of the aftershave by that name as well as the excellent Lúcido.

If we could turn back the clock 40 or 45 years, I'd recommend Noxema Brushless.  That stuff was good.  I'm pretty sure it was pink, although memory fades a bit after 4 decades.

Haven't used any other brushless.  I enjoy making the lather in my scuttle too much. Although, I think a brushless probably works just as well.

I thought I'd post my reactions to the products I have tried.

As a brushless cream, so far, the best are Dollar Shave Club butter, and Marlowe. Marlowe is better than DSC by a hair, but it's more expensive so I am not sure it is worth the cost.

Stephan's Stay Smooth works OK, but on top of Nivea, La Toja, cream, it's incredible. Slickest thing ever. No brush needed.

Pinaud was garbage, I threw it out. Same with Billy Jealousy.

Shishiedo I don't really get. I payed good money for it but it doesn't provide lubrication. Kept it because it's expensive.

Couldn't find the lush anywhere to purchase.

Jack Black was OK but I just don't like menthol. DSC was better. Aubrey sounds tempting but because it's mentholated it takes a back seat.

Cella is OK, but feels too thin. I keep it in the shower for rush days, but don't really like using it. No plan to rebuy once I am thru.

Midnight and Two I am still tempted by. set for aftershave balm though, so it's unnecessary. potential future purchase.

Feather Hi-Shave Moist Gel I am tempted by

I have only used Cremo. I bought it to try wet shaving. I use it about once a month. It works. Not very satisfying but I get a DFS. I like loading a brush and working a lather. YMMV
