I have this box/tube of Brylcreem I bought at a 5 & dime last year.  There isn’t a date on the package but I did buy a really old Shine Free powder identical to the kind I used to get in 1985.  There were lots of items in there from the 70’s and 80’s and looking at the design I’ll guess this was late 70’s/early 80’s.

Comparing the old (top) package  and the new one,  there doesn’t seem to be all too much of an update to the current design.  While the color scheme is the same, some things have changed.  The new font is a stark white and ever so slightly slanted to the right. There’s a little more information on the new package and a slogan quite but for the most part is pretty simple.
But (of course) I really like the old package because the font is orange and I think it makes more of an impact on the overall look of the box.  I think what really makes the whole design is the white stripe down the “l”.  It’s so simple but really makes the package look like there’s something “more” to it.  I’m just a huge fan of sport stripes anyway so this particularly appeals to me, but I also think they chose the perfect font for it too.  It’s like…art.  Love it!

    I want to say the new one is better, but that silly “A Little Dab’ll Do Ya!” quote ruins it for me.
