Tabula Rasa is a light cream not as dense as say Castle Forbes , beautiful slick lather. Worthy of a try in my opinion and there are many scents to choose from.

What are your best performing creams (slickness/cushion/ease of lathering), scent not a factor? How would you break it down by price point (low/medium/high)?

Although I have played around with one-night stands with many creams over the years, including some sainted ones like Castle Forbes, I have only liked three enough to keep them in my personal stock:

Kiss My Face Lavender/Shea, which I prefer to the other KMF versions for performance, though I prefer some of the other KMF scents;

AOS Ocean Kelp;

Aubrey Men’s Stock North Woods. Note: this is not a lathering cream; it is a brushless cream.

My guess as to how those would be classified by price is low, medium, low.

Many good choices listed so far in the thread.  Among the reasonably priced creams, I like Proraso Red and Musgo Real Classic.  Going to a higher price level, I like AoS in both lavender and sandalwood.

The thing about creams is there's a lot less difference, performance-wise, between the best , the good and the not so good  than the gap in soaps. I prefer soaps but creams are less of a gamble. The best soaps are better than the best creams but the worst soaps are just plain bad. There are fewer bad creams, don't know why.

Ingredients make a difference. Price doesn't.

My favourite creams are: TOBS, Trumper and Body Shop Maca Root. None is low price, but neither are they high price.

The body shop cream was too good a price to turn down. I just bought the next six months worth of cream for a little over 30 bucks.
