The perfect shave starts with clean skin. 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 with subway tile and bricks walls, vintage porcelain chairs, and hot towel treatments given by master barbers—this shave cream is the next best thing. We recommend starting with shave oil, then applying the shaving formula with a brush. and finishing with aftershave.

How it Works

This easy-to-spread formula provides a protective barrier for your skin while still allowing for an extraclose shave. Tea tree oil and witch hazel prevent razor burn, while soybean oil keeps your mug soft and hydrated. Peppermint, menthol, and botanical extracts are soothing—and leave your skin feeling clean and tingly.

How to Use

Apply using a shave brush or use your fingers to rub into clean, damp skin. Shave as usual.

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.

The product functions acceptably, but does not seem to be particularly special or more effective than others.

Did not like it at all, no lather pretty flat did not provide a close shave. Went right back to my old shave gel.

Shave Cream Review

I've used this product a few times. It's ok. It doesn't live up to the hype in the description (in my opinion).

pretty standard

its a pretty good shaving formula sure, but was it anything out of this world? I wouldn't say so, pretty decent sample though I suppose. Maybe next time.

It's okay

The shaving cream is okay at best. It does the job when you need to shave and smells really clean but what I didn't like was that it didn't seem to lather too well.

nice smell, ok product

It had a pleasant scent but didn't lather well. I had a hard time getting it off my razor. I prefer other brands.

Not enough bones

This product would be awesome if it had a combo of shave oil in it. Digging the scent and texture, just the effectiveness was lacking.

This product is okay. I don't feel like I will purchase it. However, it was nice to use for a sort time. I liked the way it smelt. It smelled very clean and glamorous.

It works really well and I can't tell its on!
Sampled

The shaving formula was surprisingly good. I put it on the first time and I was disappointed because it seemed as though there wasn't enough lather. I am used to shaving creams or gels that cover my face visibly. This product did not do that. When I applied my razor to my face I could tell the formula was working. It was the closest shave and my face was soft and dry afterward. It was pretty interesting. Maybe I need a brush as recommended. I don't think so. Its working great!
