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.

I love new shaving products and this one looks unique. The packaging is cool and it makes me want to buy a brush to go the extra mile.

Great Shave But Expensive
Sampled

I love the strong minty smell from the product. The product left my skin feeling cool and rejuvenated. The price may keep me from buying this product again.

Smells fantastic
Sampled

I used this product for a body shave, rather than my face. I love that it was a cream, rather than a gel or a foam. It went on smooth, and enabled me to get a close shave. I loved the smell of it! I would consider buying a full size, when I am out of my current shaving foam.

Really nice light smell shave formula
Sampled

This shaving formula has a really refined smell. I wish I could find my shaving brush...I felt like an animal slapping it on my face with my hands...but it did the job, and smelled great afterwards.

Close Shave with Little Irritation
Sampled

I found this product really great for my sensitive skin. A lot of shaving products leave the area applied red and irritated for days on end, but not with Baxter. I now use this product regularly.

Nice touch
Sampled

I recently started using this shave formula and I'm really liking how it makes my skin feel. It gives my face a nice and cool sensation while I'm shaving and it doesn't irritate my skin. Leaves my skin feeling super soft and it really helps with getting that close shave you're trying to get. Baxter always makes good quality products and you can never go wrong with them

It's a shaving cream
Sampled

I was a little underwhelmed by this product. Sure it smells good, but I didn't feel it was anything special. I used it with both a brush and my hands and it never quite feels like it covers your face sufficiently. As for a particularly close shave, well, I din't notice any difference from my regular products.

Great for Neck!
Sampled

I don't shave much since I usually keep a steady five o'clock shadow. But this was great for keeping my neck "clean"

Good for touch-ups, not sure about full coverage
Sampled

I have a beard so I only used it for shaving my neckline, for which it worked well. The consistency is kind of unique, a little more medicinal feeling than other shave creams. Worked great for me but not sure how I'd feel using it for a full shave.

Smells good

You defiantly need to use this with a brush. I tried using it without and it wasn't the best. Still smells good though.
