Baxter’s very first product, Super Shape, is the original moisturizer for men—and still a winner.

Baxter of California

Birchbox Breakdown

Skincare gurus agree that every man should add toner to his daily rotation—not just guys who suffer from extra shine. Unlike most other toners, which are formulated for oily skin, this gentle formula removes excess oil and dirt left behind by your cleanser, balances your skin’s pH, and protects against environmental damage without drying your face out.

How it Works

This bright blue, minty formula uses herbal extracts to tone and hydrate. The antioxidant- and vitamin-rich toner also protects skin from free radicals. Plus, it has a clean, minty smell.

How to Use

Apply toner to a cotton pad (it should be damp, but not drenched) and swab your face, focusing on your forehead, chin, and nose.

Great after washing your face
Purchased

This is really a great product for stripping out the dirt after washing your face. I use this after washing my face with the Baxter daily wash, and then use the oil free moisturizer. It really shows how much dirt is still stuck to your face.

Refreshing

I have used both expensive and inexpensive toners and this one for the price is pretty good. Leaves you feeling clean and refreshed. Smells good too. I reordered it. The only reason it's not 5 stars is it sometimes foams on my skin, but the foam disapears.

A little foamy when applied
Purchased

This is more like an astringent than a toner. I don't feel the moisturizing effects of this and I use a moisturizer after applying it. This tends to foam up around my eyebrows and in the whiskered part of my face.

It's fine and I'll finish using it but I wouldn't buy it again.

My first toner and I'm in love
Purchased

After receiving a couple of Baxter products in my box I decided to push head first into the realm of toners. This just really steps up my daily routine. The smell is great with a nice minty hint that leaves my face perfectly clean. For those of you unsure of the whole toner thing, give this brand a try!!! You'll know immediately its another layer to a perfect daily routine.

Toner without all the gross.

I wanted to start using a toner but the overbearing smell of most astringents is enough to make me just get used to my oily skin and forget about it. But I took a chance on Baxter of California's toner and I was SO pleased to find a toner that worked so well and smelled GREAT! The strong but not overwhelming mint smell follows me thoughout my day and I don't mind it at all. Five stars for sure.

Overall nice toner
Purchased

I have been using this product for about 2 weeks and I am really pleased with it so far. I have only recently started using toners so I don't have a lot to compare to but I will say that this toner smells great and leaves skin feeling slightly hydrated afterwards with no irritation and not dry at all. Recomend putting moisturizer on after treatment just for added hydration, as you should always do!
