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.

Shave your money...

Maybe you need a beaver brush, straight razor, hot towels and someone else to get a good shave from this--using my hands to lather left a thin not-great coat of 'shave formula.' I've used better products.

Never going back
Purchased

I have sensitive skin so it's always been hard to find a shaving cream or gel that really has the full package while protective sensitive skin. This product comes in an 8 oz tub, it's cream so it's going to last a very long time. I feel like this is the closest shave I've had and always feel smooth after using. The price is well worth it.

Favorite shave cream

I usually get upset when I get duplicate Birchbox items... But not this time. This is my favorite shave formula; close shave, no residue, works well on my sensitive skin

good cream

This is a great shave cream. I normally use an electric razor but thought I would give this a try. I liked it!

Nice shave product

I am pretty set in my shave routine but this product was nice and a welcome change of pace. Worked well with the Baxter after shave gel.

Interesting, but not for me.

I was excited to try this shaving product, but ended up being a little disappointed. First, the application of the "cream" is not what I wanted. I'm used to building up a nice lather with my creams, I did not get this. The packaging suggests to use a badger brush, but I thought it was more effective to use my hands. I was able to produce a very thin layer of protection which made the shave feel like I was only using water. I did not cut myself, so the product did protect, but the lack of lather made me weary.

I thought the highlight of the cream came from the "healing properties." After my first pass with a safety razor and before the second, I could already feel the cream taking effect on my skin. It was very soothing.

My only other complaint is the smell. It wasn't substantial, but I am not a big fan of peppermint. It's not an over powering smell, but it was enough that I was turned off by it.

Overall, the product was okay. I would not purchase it, but it was a goo sample.
