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.

Great product

Excellent shaving cream. I plan on purchasing the full size version of this ASAP. Better than the last shaving cream I purchased from birchbox.

Close shave, no bumps!
Sampled

This shaving cream goes on smooth and helps to get a close shave. This is the only shaving cream I have ever used that I don't get razor burn/bumps with. A little hard to get out of a multi-blade cartridge razor, but that doesn't take away from how great this shave cream is!

Wasn't what I expected

So I used this with my badger brush, and at first was very disappointed. It never really formed a good lather, but almost a "gel like" consistency. I put the razor to my face, and was actually surprised, it did the job well. Definitely does not lather like other high end creams/soaps, but it did do the job. I prefer more of a lather, so I will not be purchasing in the future.

Never Disappointed

I'm relatively new to using shave lotion, as opposed to shave cream/gel. But, this lotion has been on par with any other lotions that I have tried (which have all been high end). Another great product from this company.

Great shave

I used the sample I received to shave my head, and it gave me an extra day before I had to shave it again. It gives a really close shave, so I bought it the next day.

Absolutely terrible
Sampled

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.
