Creme Stylers-Which of these give best results?

I have edited my original question a little to see if I could narrow down a little the responses. Otherwise I would end up buying way too much stuff..LOL!!

Here are a few creme stylers that I have narrowed down from the responses and posts, if I did miss any really great ones (besides Boots) please let me know!

Here is the list!
Recoil, Innersense, Aveda Be Curly, Curl Junkie Coffee Coco Curl Creme, ISO Bouncy Creme

Which of these have you found to give the best results? If you have tried more then one can you tell me other results?
What do you use with it?
How do you use it?

Thanks so much!!!!
SheaMoisture Shea Butter Leave-in is thick enough and imparts a slight amount of hold so I treat it like a creme styler. I work a little bit into soaking wet hair (aahh it feels so good) and layer a gel on top. It gives me super super soft hair.
Location: North NJ or NYC
KC Knot Today. It's really a leave-in conditioner but it works as a styler, too. I put a little gel over it and I get well-moisturized, soft, bouncy, defined, frizz-free curls.

Other good ones are:
Curl Junkie Coffee Coco Curl Creme + gel
BB whichever cream (they're all basically the same, some just a little thicker than others) + gel
A/G re:coil...no gel necessary

OK ones are:
Curls Milkshake + gel
DevaCurl One C + gel
V05 Strawberries and Cream conditioner + gel

These are all CG-friendly, BTW (except for the DevaCurl).

What is your favorite creme styler besides Boots?
What do you use with it?
How do you use it?
What kind of curls results do you get with it? Chunky, skinny, soft, hard etc?
Garnier Fructis Soft Curl Creme
Nothing because it works so well on its own
Squish it into wet (freshly towel-blotted) hair & air dry
Soft crunch, soft chunky & tighter curls
Aveda Be Curly: I use a quarter sized dollop under mousse or gel (usually joiwhip, Hi-contrast, or B&A). It cuts down frizz and gives shine. Doesn't seem to affect clumpiness.

GF Curl&Shine leave-in: Use it the same way as Aveda, and it has a similar effect.

I like Re:coil over CK and under gel. I do get a bit clumpier curl.

But I am also liking ISO Bouncy Curl Cream. Same results as re:coil.

In regards to Vagazzling: They just want to get into the goods without worrying about getting scratched up by fake crystals. ~spring1onu~
Thanks everyone for the responses....keep them coming if you have more!
Regis Curl Lock Cream.

It gives me big, chunky waves/curls in my 2A/3A hair that last all day.

I use it by itself when I air dry and with a little HE spray gel over when I diffuse.

It's my HG on humid days.

Because of the ingredients, I find it to be a bit drying in my hair if used too often.

Ingredients: Water, VP/DMAPA acrylates copolymer, polyquaternium-37, cetearyl alcohol, propylene glycol, dicaprylate/dicaprate, polysorbate 60, C12-15 alkyl benzoate, silk amino acids, silicone quaternium-8, ficus carica, PPG-1 Trideceth-6, helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil, simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) seed oil, polyquaternium-11, cyclomethicone, fragrance (parfum), acrylates/PEG-10 maleate/styrene copolymer, VP/dimethylaminoethylmethacrylate copolymer, diazolidinyl urea, methylparaben propylparaben, panthenol, cetrimonium chloride, 4-hydroxyisohexyl 3-cyclohexene carbocxaldehyde, hexyl cinnamal, butylphenyl methylpropional, dipentene, linalool

There are just so many to choose from! I am trying to find which ones might be best for (1) clumps and if possible (2) hold. I know often they have to be paired with other things for this so that is fine! Any thoughts on which ones would be the best choices or are all of them good?

I do not want one that is drying at all.

Thanks so much for all the reponses, this has been so informative!
I am currently using L`Oreal Tex Mix hair spiral splendor. I found it about a week ago at Ulta and it has transformed my hair. With the weather changing my hair has been frizzy and limp. I use it with HE body envy gel over and I get frizz free chunky spirals. It is very moisturizing, but it does not weigh down my hair. I love it!!!

Knot Today - use under Kinky Curly Curling custard for silky, bouncy, long-lasting texture - no plopping
SheaMoisture Sheabutter or Abba Nourishing - use either under Alagio Crazy Curl Balm. I plop, then add a medium gel.
Robert Craig Conditioner is a nice leave in as well as rinse out
