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.

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.

More like soap and less like shave cream
Sampled

Unfortunately this shave cream functioned more like soap instead of shaving cream. It provided a rough shave that was caused my blade to continually get stuck on my face.

Baxter super close shave formula
Sampled

I received this in my monthly box along with the other Baxter products. I like Baxter products in general but like others here have said, this shave formula is far and away my least favorite. Im not sure I want to give two stars but I did because I use and like their daily cleanser and after shave so I can't knock this too hard. Unlike the other products in their arsenal it doesn't smell amazing or even good. It does not lather well and really must be coaxed into a lather and requires you to use a fair amount if you want to get the job done. I tried using this big ways: lathering with hot water on its own and with my badger brush but after attempting both ways I simply washed it off and went straight back to my Proraso. I really wanted to like this but just couldn't.

Decent shave formula
Sampled

This was a decent shave formula, however I did not feel it quite matched up with my art of shaving gel. It was not quite as thick as I normally like

Decent formula
Purchased

This shave formula is alright. It doesn't smell that good. It doesn't lather too well. I bought a bottle of this.

Overall good product

I like the shave cream. The sample only got me through three shaves. But using with a badger shave brush works well and it does the job. Nothing that is mind blowing but it's a good product.

Good

Super thick. Been playing with it. It overloads my Harry's razor. I will check out videos. Maybe if is an education thing.
