I haven't used it for several years, but it is a very nice cream.  Your post reminded me that I'm due for another tube.

Nancy Boy Signature is all I use. Love it.

But, I may try ADP and/or XPEC in the future.

I've actually been using it brushless on those crazy workday mornings when I'm running late. It's a lifesaver!

Tough to pick between maca root cream and ToBS sensitive formula for performance. Really like tobs sandalwood for scent.

I've been a soap/croap guy since I've started this journey. But I have recently joined the ranks of the shave cream users. Not much of a collection, and my experience is limited, but we all start somewhere. I am particularly impressed with a local artisan who produces soap/cream products that has just blown me away with their performance and scents, Stone Cottage. Really good stuff....

Stone Cottage Suede de Kashmir Cream
Stone Cottage Coconut & Sandalwood
ToBS Sandalwood
Tabac
La Toja
Dr Carver's
ToBS Eaton College

Love them all, but the first two are my go to creams.

I'm dropping Trumper off the list for good and adding Art of Shaving because it always should have been on there, not sure why I didn't have it.
For years now I've had Ocean Kelp, Unscented, and Sandalwood.
Last year I got the Eucalyptus.
A month ago I got their Peppermint.
And, as is the hot topic, there is someone currently offering the discontinued Rose Absolute you have seen in another thread.

I also have moved along the ABC crema and the Alvarez Gomez, FWIW.

Edit:
Oops, I did already have AoS on my prior list Wink open your eyes, Matt

After two years, I have to amend this, IMO the Tabac has been reformulated but not improved, out of the tube it wasn't as "oily or yellow", and the scent was more citrus.  I liked the scent change, but the lather wasn't as dense/ slick.  The "oiliness" of prior Tabac SC's seemed to soften the beard and minimize the feel of the blade shaving.  Many times with older Tabac creams, I've looked at my razor  to ensure a blade was inside, not necessary with the last tubes I've used.  The older "oily" tube cream provided a silky after-shave feel to my face lasting most of the day, the newer ones are average at best... a very disappointed Tabac SC fan.  I still like Maca Root, but haven't used it ~2 years, since falling in love with Coates, ~40+ tubes later.

Coates is by far my favorite performer  and @ $1.00 per oz a bargain, favorite scents in order; Almond(very faint), Lavender and Sandalwood, lime is a close third, regardless of scent performance is fantastic for me.  Next would be C&E Sweet Almond Oil SC, and Sienna.

Current production SC's; CF Lavender was very good, and AOS regardless scent, but Rose is Far & away #1, Ocean Kelp & Lavender tied for second, nice lathers & post shave.  TOBS & Trumpers were good from the samples I tried, and I purchased a Proraso Red to try, the reviews are mostly favorable.

Once my SC inventory runs down, e-shave & Baume are on the Radar.
