Baxter of California

Birchbox Breakdown

Baxter of California was founded in 1965 with this moisturizer for men, a groundbreaking product that quickly developed cult status. Since then, the cream has evolved—it now has SPF protection, plus a cool, updated look—but the quick-absorbing signature salve is still a Hollywood classic.

How it Works

Jojoba oil moisturizes and has antibacterial properties that keep acne in check, while grapeseed oil helps regulate natural oil production and is packed with skin-brightening antioxidants. Vitamin C and vitamin E protect against free radicals, while allantoin calms irritation and aloe vera reduces inflammation.

How to Use

After cleansing, apply liberally to face and neck. Use daily.

Great product

I use this moisturizer after my morning shower/shave and it works great to re-hydrate and protect my sensitive shin from the sun. Absorbs fast into my skin and does not leave greasy residue.

Lightweight, Effective, SPF

Those three words pretty much summarize what you get, and it's really great. I did some research for a lightweight moisturizer for the summer that also had an SPF, and Baxter got pretty rave reviews. I tried it, and it's pretty concentrated--a dime size goes a long way, and it leaves my skin with a slight glow, not at all shiny. Worth it if you're looking for something to hydrate skin without weighing it down.
