Overpriced, under-performing: barely adequate Review by: Jason 9/07/2014
Rating:
I have to agree with many of the opinions stated here. In my opinion it is, at best, an ordinary shave cream.

There are so many better and cheaper options available; anything by Proraso will completely outperform this and is cheaper. Head Slick by Headblade is a similar yet superior product, and is less than half the price.

There are plenty of wonderful creams to try here on this website, so there is no reason to settle for barely adequate :)

For the record, the scent was not an issue for me - it reminded me of toothpaste, which is not a bad thing.
This soap designed for double bladed razors. Review by: ABP 22/12/2013
Rating:
To be brief. This soap doesn't really lather. Whilst this is a real disadvantage for those who use Double Edged razors, I don't believe that DE shavers are it's intended audience.
.
One of the issues affecting those who use modern Double Bladed razors is that traditional shave cream accumulates between the blades and causes a clogging effect that defeats the technology inherent in DB shaving. Being largely disposable such blades are not open to cleaning.
.
Upon this basis I am of the opinion that this cream is designed for those who prefer modern DB shaving as opposed to the more traditional DE shaving. Due to the cream being so light and not lathering the cream build up would be greatly reduced thereby allowing the DB technology to work.
Good Product Review by: Jonas 9/11/2013

Got a free sample of Baxter Super Close Shave Formula with another purchase & I wasnt disappointed. Yes it doesnt lather up anywhere near as well as some other brands and yes you definately need a brush to use it but it gives a fantastic shave with my straight razors and doesnt dry out anywhere near as fast as some other top end brands do. I have very sencitive skin especially around my neck and with this stuff my straights just glided over my skin leaving literally no irritation what so ever. All in all I was very impressed with this product & will be ordering a tub. Dont get put off by bad reviews..try it for yourself.
TL;DR - Don't buy it. Stick to other brands. Review by: Iqlusion 13/02/2013

I bought a Baxter of California straight razor, so decided to purchase this formula with it (along with the aftershave balm which is - contrary to this - fantastic). I've been nothing but disappointed in the 8-10 shaves I've had with it. It's ridiculously hard to lather to any usable form, and once it's applied, it starts to dry much quicker than others. Have tried differing methods of lathering and differing amounts of water, but it either dilutes or is just terrible.

I do like the smell however! (Although many other reviewers have said otherwise... It's a personal taste)

Seriously, for the price, you're much better going with something else (personal favourite is the TOBS range, but *everything* else is better than this stuff), your face will thank you.
Would suit a supermarket shaver Review by: george11520 30/12/2011

I was not really bothered by the medicinal smell of this product as one reviewer was, more the consistency and the mess.

Whilst it was easy to dispense, it becomes clear very quickly that this product doesn't lather any better than a moisturiser! So the only practical method of application is directly to your skin.
As a quick way to shave it is fine, but I would imagine that this is a product best used in conjunction with a regular safety razor (i.e. disposable) that you can pick up from the supermarket or 7-11 ...
I can't really be inspired by this product at all and have used it about 6 times in total. I am perhaps too involved with the ritual of straight razor shaving, I like the brush and lather ...
Doesn't live up to it's name Review by: Laurie 8/03/2011

I received this as a sample (thanks) so this is based on only one shave. I'm a soap user and maybe this cream is unsuited to straight razors, but it gave me an only average shave.

First impression is the smell: medicinal. Took me straight back to primary school and the doctor's waiting room. I can't place it but it's a slightly herbal scent I associate with minor injuries. Not unpleasant, but not what I want to accompany my morning shave.

The cream lathers okay on the face but needed a little more water than just a wet face (as per instructions). Using a brush is a huge improvement over fingers.

The critical bit for something called Super Close Shave Formula: how was the shave? Nothing special, especially given the price. Lots of lubrication, no pulling and smooth glide, but it just the razor just didn't want to cut as well as it does with Proraso. If it was named Average Shave and cost $10 I'd let it go, but it's not.

Finally, clean up was a little messy (it seemed to get everywhere) and left my face slightly "soapy", a little like the lubricating strips on cartridge razors do, requiring a wash where I'm used to wiping off with a towel.

Summing up: nothing special at this price. Maybe it would work okay for someone with a less coarse beard and a safety razor but I cannot recommend it.
a great shave Review by: Tom 8/03/2011

Can lather this with my hands and it gives good razor slip and texture. I have a tough beard and sensitive skin and I have been more than happy with this.
Couldn't lather it Review by: Craig Little 8/03/2011
Rating:
I don't know if this stuff is supposed to be brushless, but it just disappeared into the brush when I tried to lather it. Absolutely useless (the lather, not me)! I would have given it 1 star, but I ended up squeezing in some TOBS to my bowl and the combination produced a very slick lather which gave a superb shave.
