The perfect shave starts with a clean face. 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 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.

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.

a good all in one
Sampled

i prefer a proper shave plan, with scrub, oil, foam, but if you dont have the time for all of that, this stuff fits the bill nicely. its simple, smells good, provides a smooth cutting surface.

Great product
Sampled

I gave this product to my boyfriend, and he loves it. He said it smells great, and his face always feels nice and smooth after using it. Overall, it is an excellent product.

Painless Shave
Sampled

I typically shy away from shaving because razors are harsh on my fair skin and I leave with a less-than-smooth face due to unsightly (and painful) razor burn. This product seemed to minimize irritation from shaving for a smooth finish!

Great shave

A sample of this arrived in my husband's birch box man this month, but since he uses an electric razor, I swiped it for my legs. It has a pleasant slightly menthol scent, whips up into a great white lather that doesn't fade, and did moisturize nicely. Gave a good, close shave.

Great shave!

I normally use a beard trimmer, but was inspired to give myself a proper shave after receiving this product. This is an excellent shave cream and it smelled great too!

Close shave

I like shaving "gel" more than cream and this is a good in between. Works well for traveling

It's ok

This shave cream is good but not my favorite to be honest. Too light of a lather and was hard to apply with a brush.

Foam fan

I tend to like a foamier lather, but this product did the job, protected my sensitive skin, and worked very well in tandem with the Baxter aftershave balm. This was my least favorite item in the Baxter box, but it still gets 4??s and I'm very glad I selected it.

clogs up

do not really like this. it is a lotion shave cream. it does not foam up and stays really thick. it clogs up my razor and i have to constantly clean it out. not good enough to use by itself.

Bearded

I have a beard so I didn't really get the full effect of the product. Just used on my neck but I really liked it. Would recommend.
