    Baxter is one of the best men's products available. I love their shampoo, body wash, balm and face wash. It's about time letterk that you carried something I want.

    They say it can be used both ways. I've got a tester and will try it out shortly.

    I usually keep some in my Dopp kit. I have used it both ways and it works. The lather is not the same as Trumpers but it produces a good coating. The shave is great either way. Baxter knows what they are doing.

    Sounds good. And at only costing $18 for 300ml is a pretty good deal. Tea tree/peppermint/menthol scent? Seems like an interesting combo too

    Ooooh, an alternative to the DR Harris facewash I was looking at shipping across the pond. I've used Baxter's AS and the shave cream and each have been excellent. Thanks for the heads up!

    Is the DE razor made by Merkur or Muhle? Or is it just a mystery?

    George, me, too!

    One thing I console myself with is that John doesn't seem to be making any money on shipping. His shipping prices are pretty much actual, especially USPS. This means that placing another order usually doesn't cost me any more money than it would have in the first place, which is a refreshing change of pace in today's online market. Plus there is the added bonus of getting to shop more, which is pretty satisfying in and of itself.

    It's a solid handle and has a nice feel to it.

    Exactly. We charge exactly what we pay, for both USPS and FedEx. No handling charges. And no charges for packaging materials.

    I recall trying a Baxter a/s balm that was like putting my face in a bucket of ice cubes. I thought it was a very good product.

    I used my Baxter A/S balm (gel?) this morning, and it was VERY menthol-y. My hands still smell a little like it about eight hours later, too.

    I think I'm convinced that the facewash will be mine when I get home on Monday.

    Any plans to add the Baxter "Best" badger brush as well, John?

    Also, do you - or anyone else - have the measurements for their brush(es)?

    Thanks!

    I can easily add the Best brush to our next order. I'll see if I can get in the office this weekend to get measurements of the brush.
