I was unable to use all of the product from the first bottle I purchased. A bit of it was dried out at the bottom. If you do not cream often, you probably are better off with the tubes.
Tried a lot of different chamois over the past 25 years of riding and this, I believe, is the best value when you can get it sale. There is cheaper stuff out there, but this has proven to be more durable on longer rides, requiring smaller applications.
