Is your jar of shaving cream too deep?

I’m getting near the end of my Crema da Barba, and it’s a pain getting the brush lathered up. The jar without the lid is 3 inches deep. My Shavemac and Paladin brushes are only
3 ½ inches from bottom to top. And, I have fairly big hands.

I just scooped the remaining cream out and transferred it to a wooden container I held onto (I think it came with Meissner Tremonia soap). It’s only about 1 ½ inches high, and should make it much easier to access the cream. I’ll find out tomorrow.

A Maggards Colt PETG jar will cure what ails you.

I just started my second tub of Crema da Barba. It is the deepest tub I’ve had but did not have any problems reaching the bottom.

It probably depends on your brush.  I have a stubby handled badger brush that's worthless for scooping anything.  All it does is pat the cream on it's little noggin rather than scooping any out!  But if I use my stiffer, longer handled horsehair brush, I can scoop like a gopher diggin' a hole.  Sometimes if I'm using the Badger, I'll just scoop from the cream with my finger and put a blob on my brush, then work it into a lather in my Dirty Bird lather bowl.  Each soap/cream seems to be different, so there's room for several different strategies, it seems.

I agree that a container from Maggards is an easy fix, though I'll also say that I appreciate companies that design their products/packaging to work well the way people use them.  One that come to mind is Klar Seifen.  Great soap, great scent, though the narrow cylinder made me crazy.
