The perfect shave starts with a clean face. 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 complete with vintage porcelain chairs and hot towel treatments——this shave cream is the next best thing. A smooth, spreadable formula provides a protective barrier for skin and paves the way for an extraclose shave. Botanicals like tea tree oil, witch hazel, menthol, and peppermint prevent razor burn while leaving behind the signature tingle of a shave well-done.

How to Use

Apply to clean, damp skin using Baxter of California's Badger Shave Brush or your fingers. Shave as usual. Rinse and follow with a soothing layer of After Shave Balm.

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.

Great shave!

I used this this morning in combination with Baxter's After Shave Balm, and I couldn't be happier! I think I have had other samples of shaving cream that I liked too, but this one works for me as well as the better ones I've tried. I love how my facial skin feels now ever since starting to use Baxter products!

Shaving Snob

I am a shaving snob. Safety razor and brush is my go too for an everyday shave. Love this stuff. Goes on smooth and reduces friction allowing for a super smooth shave absent of irritation. Try it and you will see that it is one of the best creams out there.

Not a fan

I enjoy wet shaving and when the instuctions indicate to "lather" with badger brush, I expect a lather! No lather just left a film on the brush and my face. Wasn't impressed!

It works but messed up my razor

The shave cream does everything it promises but I found problems when trying to clean my razor off the shave cream congealed onto the blades and I had a really hard time getting it off

Shave Formula sticks to razor

The formula has a nice putty smell to it which I really like. I have been using a "shave butter" mostly recently which feels like a gel. This product feels like a paste on your skin or a thick lotion. The product worked well, however it tends to gunk up my razor a bit which is somewhat annoying and tedious if shaving dense man fur.

Doesn't lather up much

This product doesn't lather up much. However it does protect against friction burn well and keeps the razor burn to a minimum. However i normally like a product that lathers up more

Fantastic Shave Cream

I had already bought the big tub of this, and it is definitely my go-to shave cream. It isn't overdoing it on the lather, but my face feels protected. I'm using the sample I got from Birchbox to travel with so I don't have to lug the big tub around in my dopp kit.

Close-Acting Shave Formula

This product is wonderful. I am able to use very little cream for a close shave and leaves a minty, tingly feeling on my face. While the sample amount left very little to use, I am sure that I will purchase the product.
