The perfect shave starts with clean skin. Baxter’s Daily Face Wash is a mild, foaming cleanser that eradicates oil and dirt without drying out your skin.

Baxter of California

Birchbox Breakdown

If you can’t pop into Baxter’s Los Angeles barbershop—a throwback with subway tile and bricks walls, vintage porcelain chairs, and hot towel treatments given by master barbers—this shave cream is the next best thing. We recommend starting with shave oil, then applying the shaving formula with a brush. and finishing with aftershave.

How it Works

This easy-to-spread formula provides a protective barrier for your skin while still allowing for an extraclose shave. Tea tree oil and witch hazel prevent razor burn, while soybean oil keeps your mug soft and hydrated. Peppermint, menthol, and botanical extracts are soothing—and leave your skin feeling clean and tingly.

How to Use

Apply using a shave brush or use your fingers to rub into clean, damp skin. Shave as usual.

Petrolatum, Bentonite (CI 77004), Beeswax (Cera Alba), Dicaprylyl Maleate, Ethylhexyl Stearate,Propylene Glycol, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Oleth-20, Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon) Peel Oil, Foeniculum Vulgare (Fennel) Oil, Salvia Officinalis (Sage) Oil, VP/VA Copolymer.

Will clog your Fusion / Mach 3
Purchased

This super close shave formula is ONLY for straight razors. A multibladed razor like the Gillette fusion which I prefer, is not going to work with this shaving cream.

I used it a couple of times and the cream and tiny hairs got sandwiched between the 5 blades. Could not rinse them out with just hot water. Ended up using tweezers to remove the shaving cream buildup between the blades.

I will revise this review once I have tried with a straight razor. (Ordered a Dovo razor online)

Not For Use With a Brush
SampledPurchased

I shave in the shower and use a brush to apply shave cream. This will not lather at all using a brush. I have used 5 times as much shave cream as I do with other products and still cannot get any lather with a brush (as is recommended on both this site and on the container itself). This was very disappointing and I do not recommend it for anyone that uses a shave brush.

Top of the line
Purchased

Recently I shifted to using a safety razor and I needed a new shaving cream. I saw this used as part of a Birchbox demo and decided to give it a try. I have been thrilled with it. Not only does it work great and give me a fantastic shave, but it wakes my face up with a nice tingle. I would recommend this for anyone that has switched to using a safety razor.

Great shave

Really pleased with this shave cream. Goes on rich and slick enough I don't need to use shave oil in conjunction.

this stuff works great in my opinion. a little hard to smooth out because it clumps but once you work it in good shave cream

Not for me

I like a thicker cream. I use a double edge razor and this formula would get stuck on the razor.

Good shave creme

I like the complete cream that gives you the pre-shave and shave components in one. As most of us are in a rush much of the time, having this product saves us time.

Always looking for a better shave

I am always in search of better ways to shave. I have very sensitive skin but enjoy growing a beard. I really like what this product has to offer. It leaves my skin feeling great!
