Baxter of California Super Close Shave Formula - 250 ml

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.

This is by far the worst shave cream I have ever used. I tried it both with a brush and without (using the suggested "badger brush", which really ought not make a difference), and found no discernible difference. This does not produce enough cushion and glide for a respectable shave without using an exorbitantly large amount of cream. My initial attempts at shaving with it resulted in the razor skipping and even nicking me in several places. Look elsewhere for a good shave.

Does the job

In terms of shave creams I have received from Birch Box, this is definitely one of the better ones. Applied well with a brush allows for a nice smooth shave.

Love the product - sample is small
Purchased

I actually already purchased this about a month ago prior to getting it in my box. The best shaving cream/lotion that I've ever used. Does work best when using a brush to apply though. The only issue I have is that the sample size is very small, I was only able to get on shave out of it.

Great Shave formula but...

I use this shave formula every time I shave which is about once a week and I do love it, but I wish the lather was a little thicker.

Good concept

This is a good shave product. I always like to try new shave creams, and this seems to work well.

Soothing Close Shave

This is a stellar shave cream. I like the fact that it allowed me to get a really close shave without irritation. My face feels soft and smooth and soothed.
Love it will be buying soon.

Loved it!

I used this shave cream with a brush and it didn't lather much so I initially thought I would be disappointed. But in reality it gave me one of the closest shaves I've ever had with virtually no irritation.
