Find out how this Californian company is making waves in the UK...

Baxter of California

This April we’ve had the honour to attend the official launch of this cool Cali brand in the UK and try out some of their products and we couldn’t be more thrilled!

Their ethos #lifelivedtrue is about more than just skincare, it’s a lifestyle. Having its roots in California, the brand embraces the West Coast state of mind of following your truth and living your best life, pursuing your dreams. Founded in 1965 with the notion that premium performance doesn’t have to be overstated, the brand has lived up to its expectations.

Facial Scrub Weekly Treatment, £19.00 RRP

With products ranging from skincare, haircare, shaving, grooming all the way to lifestyle items, every one of them was thought out with real life in mind, and they deliver performance without breaking the bank.

Clay Mask AHA with Kaolin, Aloe and Hazel, £18.00 RRP

Our Editor in Chief Aaron Mark has been trialling it for little over a month, and this is what he has to say:

‘It’s difficult these days to find off the shelf products that actually work when it comes to your skin. My skin is always changing due to different temperatures and environments, and I have to adapt to that as best I can.’

Sulfate Free Daily Face Wash, £19.00 RRP

‘It doesn’t help that I suffer with very oily skin either, a difficult thing to control, so I was skeptical about trying the Baxter’s of California range – but I shouldn’t have worried!’


Skin Concentrate BHA with Salicylic Acid, Vitamin E and Caffeine, £28.00 RRP

‘The cleanser is thick and leaves my skin fresh and soft (don’t forget to wash off with cold water) the concentrate BHA is exactly what my skin needs to firm it up and get those pores tight, and the oil free moisturiser locks all the goodness in whilst also letting my skin breathe. ‘

I can honestly say I have found my secret skin weapon!’

Fragrance Free, Oil Free Moisturiser, £23.00 RRP

Personally, I’ve tried the Citrus Invigorating Body Wash and the Exfoliating Body Bar and love them!

(In full disclosure, I LOVE men’s shower and body products as they’re usually fresher smelling, with base notes of citrus and herbs, which I prefer to most floral based women’s products.

Invigorating Body Wash Citrus and Herbal Musk Essence, from £16.00 RRP for 8oz. (238ml)

The Body Wash has a citrus/herbal musk scent that is refreshing and just so yummy and the Exfoliating Body Bar has just the right amount of grit for a nice exfoliation without being aggressive or stripping and is packed with goodies like jojoba to leave the skin with a super soft feeling. Smells fab also, with cedarwood and oakmoss essence.

Exfoliating Body Bar, £16.00 RRP

You can find the full range on amazon.co.uk, ASOS.com and selected retailers/salons.
