As a self-titled men’s lifestyle writer, I’ve collected my fair share of grooming products to test over the last few years. Now that Spring has arrived, I felt it was time to finally tear apart my grooming cupboard and give it the Spring Cleaning it deserved. My goal was to shed the products that didn’t work and the ones that have collected dust, because chances are I won’t ever use them and they are just taking up needed space.
My first step was to grab a box and start gathering up all the products I wasn’t going to ever use. I wanted to really focus on a single brand and utilize their entire portfolio.
Baxter of California helped me kick off my grooming products Spring Cleaning by sending me a few products from their Best Sellers and Award Winners category. The three products sent to me was their Oil Free Moisturizer (Hydrating Face Lotion for Men), Herbal Mint Toner (Facial Astringent for Men), and their Invigorating Body Wash – Italian Lime / Pomegranate (Hydrating Shower Gel for Men). Unfortunately, since shaving my head a few years back, I haven’t had the pleasure of trying any of their hair. From what I’ve been told by friends who have used them, their collection is top-notch.

I’ve been lacking in the moisturizing department, so the Oil Free Moisturizer was a great addition to my daily grooming routine. I travel a lot for my job, so my body is constantly getting exposed to different temperatures and climates, which begins to show in my face. The Oil Free Moisturizer is soothing and keeps me hydrated throughout the day. I use it right after I get out of the shower.
The Invigorating Body Wash is similar to the moisturizer in the sense that it hydrates really well. It also smells amazing! If the Italian Lime and Pomegranate isn’t your scent of choice, Baxter of California also has it in Flora and Cassis.
Last, but certainly not least, is the Herbal Mint Toner. This is one of Baxter of California’s award-winning products that cleanses, tones and removes impurities from your facial skin. It also will give your skin antioxidants and the Vitamin C and E it deserves.
Now, since these three products alone aren’t exactly enough to complete my grooming collection, I went ahead and purchased a few more items like: Shave Tonic, Super Close Shave Formula (for the head), and Grooming Cream (for the beard).
