Baxter of California Super Close Shave Formula - 250 ml

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.

good cream

This is a great shave cream. I normally use an electric razor but thought I would give this a try. I liked it!

Nice shave product

I am pretty set in my shave routine but this product was nice and a welcome change of pace. Worked well with the Baxter after shave gel.

Interesting, but not for me.

I was excited to try this shaving product, but ended up being a little disappointed. First, the application of the "cream" is not what I wanted. I'm used to building up a nice lather with my creams, I did not get this. The packaging suggests to use a badger brush, but I thought it was more effective to use my hands. I was able to produce a very thin layer of protection which made the shave feel like I was only using water. I did not cut myself, so the product did protect, but the lack of lather made me weary.

I thought the highlight of the cream came from the "healing properties." After my first pass with a safety razor and before the second, I could already feel the cream taking effect on my skin. It was very soothing.

My only other complaint is the smell. It wasn't substantial, but I am not a big fan of peppermint. It's not an over powering smell, but it was enough that I was turned off by it.

Overall, the product was okay. I would not purchase it, but it was a goo sample.

Not quite as effective as others

I like (and own) some Baxter products, but find this doesn't allow as close, smooth or nick-free a shave as other products.

Don't shave much but the product worked great! Also used the after shave balm together they work great and make your skin feel incredibly smooth.

Liked not so much

Sample was too small for me to really decide if I like or not and was more of a cream that smears which I don't really like. Not for me so I won't be purchasing in the future

Nice scent, lackluster lather

While I enjoy the scent of this cream immensely, it doesn't lather well (read: at all). Just personal preference for me, but I prefer something that will whip up into something nice. The scent is great though, and still provides a slick shave.
