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.

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.

Well, it works...

I think there's a misnomer that we have after being inundated for years with canned shave products that came out white and fluffy, or as a gel that lathered up. It's not all shave cream, and the brands would do themselves a favor to not identify as that. This product is more of a lotion than a cream. Like others, on my first use I was confused by the lack of lather, so I went to the Baxter website for additional direction. The brush that they recommend is to help lift your hairs, not create a lather. For my second use I squirted into the palm of my hand and was able to better prep my brush with product. I felt like i used more than my normal foaming cream.
