Birchbox Breakdown

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.

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.

Nice Shave, Poor Lather
Purchased

I purchased this product after loving other Baxter of California products. For the record, it does provide a great shave. The scent is nice, and it feels great on the face. My only criticism of the product is the lather. You have to use a lot of the product to get a decent amount of lather on the face. It is almost like a lotion. It will not lather properly in my badger hair shave brush. Instead, I have to use my hand to apply the product.

Love this stuff!
Purchased

I wasn't crazy about the texture of this formula at first but after using it, I'm hooked. It goes on thick so I wouldn't recommend caking it on. A little definitely goes a long way. Very smooth shave. 5+ stars.

Love the feel, wish it had more lather
Sampled

I really liked this shave lotion -- it had a nice tingle on my skin and felt very smooth. I wish I could have gotten more of a lather from it, though. I don't have a shave brush and just applied it with my hands, so it might be better with a different application.

Underwhelming

I love Baxter's products but I was incredibly disappointed with this one. Did not provide a close shave. At all. I got that it's not going to lather like a traditional cream but it wasn't moisturizing enough and left my skin irritated after shaving. Tried both brush and hands. But it did have a clean smell to it. Sticking with my proraso

Cynical Baldy Satisfied.

I'm bald and therefore shave my entire head as well as my face. Consequently I have a tendency to experiment with a lot of shave products looking for a smooth shave. I received this as a promotional sample and must confess this is probably the best product I've encountered so far. Seriously, I'll be back to pay money for this stuff.
