    Reading Time: 1 minute

    Among one of the many men’s grooming products we’ve tried, tested, and bought – Baxter of California remains one of our favourites. If you’re not familiar with Baxter, it was created in 1965 because its eponymous founder could not find skin care products that catered to men and thus created his own.

    Fast forward to 2019, the brand has expanded its reach well beyond the Golden State and its products are a must-have for many.

    What we appreciate about Baxter of California just limited to personal use but it is also perfect for the barbershops. Whether they come for a lineup, beard trim, facial cleanse or haircut – barbers can take care of their clients from A to Z.

    At our Monsieur Troy barbershop and grooming space, we see a lot of different hair types daily. Ranging from coarse, to curly, to wavy, to straight – you name it. Having a variety of their clay, cream, and water based pomades helps our barbers style their client’s hair to perfection. For beard treatments, they like to use Baxter’s beard line-up shaving gel and the shave tonic to finish off the service. If a wash is requested, the barbershop has the daily fortifying shampoo and conditioner ready to invigorate and clean their freshly cut hair.
