ADP is the best I have ever tried.

2nd tier: old XPEC (don't like new formula), AoS cream, Al's shaving cream.

Waiting to try Alvarez Gomez.

I use a few creams, especially in summer:

-Al's: probably my favorite since it's so versatile.  Scents are tricky and the descriptions on the site aren't terribly helpful...

-St James: likely the best post-shave of creams that I've tried, if only the Bergamot & Sandalwood didn't give me the napalm effect...

-Nancy Boy: supposedly a brushless variety, but I like to add some water and use one anyway.  Better results for me with the brush, and similar to Al's in its versatility. 

-Speick/EJ: I think these are the same cream base.  The Speick is insane value, the scent just has that medicinal, camphorous edge to it.  EJ Limes & Pomegranate is stupidly lovely though.

Musgo Real Original - I love the scent, performance is outstanding.
I Coloniali Rhubarb - I love the scent, also a great performer.  I think the cream smells and performs very similar to the soap which gets more attention.

I love Pacific Shaving Company's original in the green tube.  Super cheap, smells great, performs wonderfully.

My preferred creams are Proraso Red and Green. I also like C.O. Bigelow, but believe there is a difference between that and P-Green. They smell and feel different to me.

Like Celestino, I prefer soaps, but I have tried many creams, and I have yet to find one that beats Kiss My Face Lavender & Shea, and I expect that I shall not further pursue that fruitless quest.  KMF L&S is really good, and its only flaw is that it is so inexpensive that one dast not brag about it on Shavenook for danger of having one's Snob Badge permanently revoked.

I mostly use soaps, but creams make it in the rotation at least twice a week.  My favorite is the Blenheim Bouquet, followed by Salter's in Citrus or Vetiver.  Art of Shaving in any flavor is pretty fine also.

KMF Green Tea & Bamboo is a great scent and product.

I'm using Godrej lime for the first time this week on vacation, so we'll see. Nice scent. I rarely use creams though. The only others I'll use on occasion are Speick, Musgo Real and Irisch Moos.
