Baxter of California Super Close Shave Formula - 250 ml

If you can't pop into Baxter'’s L.A. barbershop——a throwback 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 ensures a smooth shave. Tea tree oil, witch hazel, menthol, and peppermint prevent razor burn while leaving behind the signature tingle of a shave well-done.

More Lather!
Sampled

This works pretty well, my shave was close but I would like it to have a little more lather.

Doesn't hold any water
Sampled

I tried to use this as a standard shave cream by putting it into my shave bowl, adding water, and whipping it into a lather. However, it doesn't lather. At all. It stays thin and doesn't hold the water like most other shaving creams I've used. Won't buy, ever.

Baxter of California
Sampled

I have only barely heard of some of the Baxter of California brand, and this one isnt terrible but doesnt not provide a real great lather to allow for a real close shave depending on the blade you are using. I think it needs to have a little more thickness to it to allow for that lather and glide of the blade to avoid and knicks or cuts on your face. I wont say it is terrible but it isnt the best brand I have seen when it comes to a shave cream.

Nice new shave experience
Sampled

I have a standard shave cream/gel I have used for many years. This was a nice change. I was nervous about the lack of lather, but the shave was very smooth and pretty much no fuss. I definitely enjoy it.

Great Product
Sampled

This is a great shave formula. Unfortunately it doesn't quite measure up to Dollar Shave Club's shave butter in price or quality. It is still, however, a great product for anyone who takes pride in their daily shave.

Good Shave Poor Lather
Sampled

This does not lather hardly at all but somehow still produces a smooth close shave. I was slightly confused at first because it didnt lather but tried it anyway.
