Birchbox Breakdown

Razor cartridges can cost an arm and a leg, but if you’'re looking for an affordable old-school alternative, a straight razor isn’'t your only option. Take a page from your father’'s playbook with this double-edge safety razor, made in Germany for exceptional quality. The chrome-plated finish will make this razor an instant prized possession.

How to Use

Start with a hot shower to soften hair and open up pores. For best results, wash your face with an exfoliant to slough away dead skin cells and better expose your beard. Finally, lather up and shave as you normally would, pausing occasionally to admire your stylish new setup.

Great safety razor
Purchased

First time user of a safety razor. After using consistently for 2 weeks I don't have ingrown hairs. Using this combined with the Baxter badger hair brush and super close shave creme. It is a winner

First Time User, Reasonable Success
Purchased

This is literally my first ever DE razor, and I used it for my first time with reasonable success. I need to relearn how to shave with this kind of razor as it requires a different technique from what I have used with normal multi-blade disposable razors since I started shaving, but that will come with practice.

I am also planning on trying out different blades, but for right now all I have are the Derby blades that this razor came with.

With all that said I was able to shave for the first time with far better results then I expected. My face was easy and I ended up with a very smooth shave with no cuts at all. My neck is where I tend to have issues. It is very sensitive and has some small bumps from ingrown hairs and such. I still got a smooth shave, but ended up with lots of small nicks and cuts over the bumps.

I learned a lot from that first shave though, and I believe that I can find blades that will work better for my face. Over all I am very happy that I made this purchase and I believe that it will only get better from here.

Baxter of California Safety Razor
Purchased

Bought this for my husband. He loves it!!! This is a great value and the product is very well made. It really provides a close shave.

NOTE: Also had to purchase brush, cream, and aftershave.
If you buy make sure you see the instructions, this is not to be used as a multi-blade razor. :)

Excellent build quality

I have owned my Baxter Safety Razor after I decided to ditch the disposables. I have to say this is by far one of the best I have seen/tried for the price and it still shines like it did at day one. It's heavy enough give you that perfect pressure as it glides over your face, totally effortless.

User friendly
Purchased

I bought this for my husband who has always had trouble with ingrown hairs to the point of us doing minor surgery in the bathroom:/. We had done a lot of research about straight edge razors and finally settled on this one. I watched him use it for the first time and couldn't believe how easy it worked. A few minor nicks, which is expected at first but no more ingrown hairs or razor burn. Great investment. Thank you birchbox for featuring such a quality product:)
