The Good

  • It’s a cinch to find and purchase all Baxter of California products via the official website.
  • The website offers a “retail locator” link.
  • Full product ingredient lists are provided on the website.

The Bad

  • Real clinical proof regarding what’s in Baxter of California products is not presented on the website.
  • There are no testimonials posted on the website.
  • No 100% money-back guarantee is mentioned on the website.
  • Baxter of California products are really only geared toward men, not women.
  • Certain ingredients offered in these skin care products may not be suitable for all complexions, especially considering the number of artificial fragrances and preservatives present.

The Bottom Line

Currently there are many men’s skin care and shaving lines at our disposal. This may make it difficult to choose just one, such as Baxter of California. Overall, it’s reassuring to see a brand of treatments that clearly posts all ingredients on the official website for consumers. On the other hand, it would also be nice to see some testimonials, clinical research, and a 100% money-back guarantee for Baxter of California products. Be sure to do some shopping around before simply choosing a line like Baxter.
