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 product is good. You don't whip it like a traditional cream. Just apply it directly to the skin. I use it when I don't have time to whip up some lather. The scent is Ok nothing great but the shave is surprisingly good.
Received the Baxter Super Close Shave cream as a sample pack with an order. I am certainly glad it was a free sample because it gave me one of the worst shaves ever. Reminded me of the old days when you ran out of shave cream and you had to use hand soap. Very little to no cushion and a poor lather that dried on my face. Over 30 years as a wet shaver but never experienced anything like it
Surprisingly disappointing-- every other Baxter of California product has been amazing, but this stuff... oh man, I wish I could get a refund or at least an exchange for something else (even if it's lesser in cost). Whatever 'protective cushion between the skin and razor' they claim there is non-existent. It provides a translucent, superficial thin layer of product (I really can't call it cream) that *maybe* provides no noticeable difference in smoothness during a wetshave. Long story short, save your money and buy another cream! I normally read reviews before I buy a product but I assumed a Baxter product would be of high quality so I just went ahead and got it-- that was a mistake! Anyways, if any Fendrihan employees read this... I'll gladly accept *any* other shaving cream in exchange for this stuff! Aside from the cream, I was very happy with everything else in my order and the shipping time was SO fast!

I didn't like using this cream. It does a fairly good job, it feels like it is protecting the skin when shaving. Also definitely use a badger brush directly on your face, because it doesn't apply very good only with your hand. Also, the smell is not strong and disappears fast, but it smells horrible. Reminds me of PRC, a sealant compound used on aircrafts. I give it 3 star, because it does the trick and I would probably give it more if I wasn't for the smell. It removed the joy of shaving.
