La Toja
Coates
G.F Trumpers Rose and Violet
Castle Forbes Lime

and I have to put Speick in there too.

I've done this by brand, but if I were to do it strictly by specific creams it would be TOBS Rose, TOBS Lavender, TBOS Avocado and TOBS Coconut.

I'm primarily a soap guy now - but I recently tried XPEC and it blew me socks off. Everyone should try XPEC once...

While they're not in my top four, I think honourable mentions should go to D.R Harris Arlington and Proraso White in the tub. XPEC scented is definitely on my list to try.

I don't use creams anymore. Haven't in at least a year and a half, or even more, and I never really explored creams in great detail because I was drawn to soaps.

However, I present a list of my favorite creams:

1) Penhaligon's Castile (R.I.P.) Best cream I ever tried.
2) Al Raz's The Bomb creams. Thick, lasting lather; exceptional creams.
3) Trumper's Lime. Mostly because I loved the scent.
4) T&H Ultimate Comfort. Just a touch more hydrating than their other creams.
