Baxter of California 5 Cartridge Razor
Why work with Baxter of California? Baxter of California is one of the first brands dedicated to men's grooming. Many companies have since jumped on the bandwagon, but Baxter was a pioneer when they started back in 1965. Their approach is "old school in concept but high-tech in practice. Science plus nature, built from the ground up in California".
Why sell Baxter of California at Blade + Blue? Ok, here is the truth: I turned 40 years old this year and I freaked out. I know age is just a number but I had a hard time leaving my 30's behind. In my quest to stay forever young, I treated myself to some Baxter products and was floored by the results. I could not believe the drastic changes I quickly saw in my hair and skin. I mean it! My coarse Greek hair stopped being unruly, my face was no longer an oily disaster and my skin was as soft as a baby's "you-know-what".
Please know, that I am very protective of Blade + Blue. I wouldn't open it up to any products that I did not whole heartedly believe in. I have selected products that I think can actually make a difference in the way you look and the way you feel about yourself.
The Five Cartridge Razor: So, there is a pretty long and detailed explanation of why this razor is so great. But can I just give you the bottom line based on my experience?
Here goes: First off, the blade glides and adjusts over the curves of my face & neck. There is a kind of 'hinge' that secures the blade and this hinge allows the razor to have better mobility. The improved mobility helps improve precision and prevents cuts & irritation.
Secondly, the damn thing is really impressive to look at. I mean, this is a MAN's razor! It is a handsome polished black with silver accents. But there is more to that handle than good looks. The razor is really lightweight, this was the very first thing I noticed when I started using it. Why does the light weight matter? Well, besides being comfortable, it was designed to balance the weight of force across all the blades applied when shaving. A lot of careful thought was put into making this razor a piece of art.
The razor comes with a starter cartridge. Cartridges can be replaced with market leading brands ( I just go to Walgreens ! )
