Hey guys, I'm looking for a good lime cream or soap. Leaving towards a cream as I want to mix things up a little bit. So far I've ordered a sample of castle Forbes and geo trumpers. Any suggestion for a good cream or soap in a lime scent? Considering musgo as well as true fitt and hill but from my research it seems castle Forbes may be the cream to beat. Your thoughts?

Have you tried stirling soaps? They have a lime scented offering, I haven't tried that one in particular but I've enjoyed one of their other soaps. I have the lime ASB, decent, but it doesn't compare to my opus 1870

In regards to cream, you'd be hard pressed to find a better lime scented cream than Castle Forbes.

Performance is truly superb and the lime is a simple yet natural lime with very good scent strength making the shave a real joy.

Never tried Stirling, honestly I've got probably 30 soaps and maybe 3 creams, I really would like to try a cream so far I got samples of musgo lime, castle Forbes, and I grabbed a tub of geo trumpers because I found it for 18 bucks. I have the trumpers skin food in lime and the scent has really grown on me. I'm usually not a fan of line scents but I think it would be a nice summer scent .

I just tried  trumpers sandalwood recently, excellent stuff and the smell is phenominal, a lot of depth. I can only imagine their lime scented cream.

I have to agree, this is one of the best lime scented soaps that I've ever tried. And, it's made by an artisan on TSN.

Get the Coate's Lime.
In fact, at the price, get all the Coate's.

Probably the best performing cream you can buy. (And one of the cheapest thanks to Andy.)

My experience with Castle & Forbes is not good. The soap performs well and you'll make your own decision when you get your sample, but the scent is too industrial; to my nose it is very similar to Pinesol, or Lestoil. There's a lot of gents who really like this soap, but I can't count myself as one of them. YMMV, naturally.
Pick up a tub of Mystic Water Lime. It's brilliant. AND, it actually smells like fresh limes.  Thumbsup

I didn't like the scent of CF limes, somewhat similar to starburst or opal fruits lime sweets, too sweet for my liking. Performance is very good but so are others.

I know you are looking for creams, but if you want a great lime soap try Mike's Natural Lime.  It is superb, and to my nose, smells more like fresh lime than anything else I have tried.  I don't think he currently has any in stock (which is a problem found frequently with Mike's soaps) but they are worth waiting for.
