Baxter of California Super Close Shave Formula is a moisturizing shave cream that has been formulated for men’s use. It produces a cushioning lather that enables the razor to glide rather than drag over the skin while also protecting it against the sharpness of the razor’s edge. At the same time, the lather helps to relieve skin irritation and protect it against infectious microorganisms. Using the product is best done with a badger shaving brush, though hands are also an acceptable substitute. Bear in mind that the razor should be rinsed using warm water on a regular basis during usage.
Starting in 1965, Baxter of California has been bringing a world of excellent skincare and grooming products to men. The company expanded from the creation of its first product, Super Shape. When Baxter Finley began the company, he knew the male population was desperately in need of products that they could use to take care of their skin. Men have taken to these products and made the company a well-deserved success.

This cream has a great, mild, menthol smell that cools the face while the lubrication yields fantastically close shaves. It works great. But it is a three star product for two reasons: The box and website specify applying with a brush and, as other reviews have mentioned, this is frustratingly impossible. So why tell us to do it? Apply with your hands directly. Second issue is that given the cream does not lather, you don't get that visual cue of where you're shaving. The lack of lather can also make it hard to apply the cream thick enough if you've got wet hands and face. Once applied it works great though!
I must say that I'm impressed. I had a 4 days beard. I have sensitive skin. I decided to give it a try and see. It doesn't produce a thick foam or lather. Don't let this deceive you. It prepared my beard nicely, it has a cooling effect. The razor was passing very smooth on my beard. I had a clean shave with less passes than I'm used to. I didn't have any irritation on my beard. Also it didn't stick on my razor blade as the other creams, so cleaning my blade was an easy task. It's worth to try it. Again...thanks Fendrihan for making this available for us.
I found this cream almost as nice as Cremo. It provides a well lubricated, nice close shave but since I enjoy whipping up lathers from soaps and/or creams in a variety of scents, I don't think I'll be adding to to my rotation.
Received a free sample in an order from Frendrihan. Didn't read the reviews stating better application without a brush. I tried to lather with a brush and got nowhere. By the time I applied it to my face, you could barely tell there was anything there. Didn't enjoy that shave...
