Baxter’s very first product, Super Shape, is the original moisturizer for men—and still a winner.

Baxter of California

Birchbox Breakdown

Skincare gurus agree that every man should add toner to his daily rotation—not just guys who suffer from extra shine. Unlike most other toners, which are formulated for oily skin, this gentle formula removes excess oil and dirt left behind by your cleanser, balances your skin’s pH, and protects against environmental damage without drying your face out.

How to Use

Apply toner to a cotton pad (it should be damp, but not drenched) and swab your face, focusing on your forehead, chin, and nose.

Essential in morning routine
Purchased

I've never used a toner before and wasn't sure if it was needed. After using a lot of the other Baxter products I figured I would give it a try.

I have definitely noticed a difference in my skin and using it after I shave and before I put on the after shave balm keeps me skin clear of break outs and feeling fresh in the morning or right before bed.

Definitely recommend picking it up!

Great on my skin - less minty than expected
Purchased

The toner does a great job of removing oil and dirt from my face and neck after a workout or at the end of a long day. I do get a clean feeling and do not feel like my skin is being dried out at all. The only thing holding me back from giving this a five star rating is that I expected more of the refreshing mint scent to come through as opposed to the herbal/earthy scent. If you are concerned about the product being too minty, I don't think you have anything to worry about as the herbal scent takes over shortly after use.

Great scent and perfect level of disinfection and hydration
Purchased

This toner is amazing. The scent is a great clean, minty smell that dissipates quickly but adds a level of freshness. it doesn't dry out my skin as badly as other toners, and it also seems to keep my skin pretty clean, especially after shaving.

Love it!
Purchased

I hadn't tried any Baxter products before I bought this, but I really like the brand now! It has an interesting fresh smell and a good sized bottle for the price. I'll keep buying this for sure.

Great after washing your face
Purchased

This is really a great product for stripping out the dirt after washing your face. I use this after washing my face with the Baxter daily wash, and then use the oil free moisturizer. It really shows how much dirt is still stuck to your face.

Refreshing

I have used both expensive and inexpensive toners and this one for the price is pretty good. Leaves you feeling clean and refreshed. Smells good too. I reordered it. The only reason it's not 5 stars is it sometimes foams on my skin, but the foam disapears.

A little foamy when applied
Purchased

This is more like an astringent than a toner. I don't feel the moisturizing effects of this and I use a moisturizer after applying it. This tends to foam up around my eyebrows and in the whiskered part of my face.

It's fine and I'll finish using it but I wouldn't buy it again.

My first toner and I'm in love
Purchased

After receiving a couple of Baxter products in my box I decided to push head first into the realm of toners. This just really steps up my daily routine. The smell is great with a nice minty hint that leaves my face perfectly clean. For those of you unsure of the whole toner thing, give this brand a try!!! You'll know immediately its another layer to a perfect daily routine.

Toner without all the gross.

I wanted to start using a toner but the overbearing smell of most astringents is enough to make me just get used to my oily skin and forget about it. But I took a chance on Baxter of California's toner and I was SO pleased to find a toner that worked so well and smelled GREAT! The strong but not overwhelming mint smell follows me thoughout my day and I don't mind it at all. Five stars for sure.
