Smooth & Classic
A Brush with History
Contrary to popular belief, retro-style shaving brushes are by no means a relic of the past. No modern aerosol foam quite compares with the thick lather you get from a brush.
Besides whipping up a thick, fluffy cushion of lather, our custom-designed shaving brush exfoliates your skin and cleans your hairs before you shave – paving the way for smooth, gliding strokes with your razor.
I like this shave brush and recommend it. I have the Faux Ox Horn one and it's bristles are stiff and it lathers/applies the shave cream very well. This is better than their newer version (Anodized Aluminum.) The bristles on the new one were too soft and didn't lather the shave cream as well as the Faux Ox Horn version.
I had previously purchased animal hair brushes, but this one is much smoother on my face and doesn't lose fibres as often. I was surprised at how soft and smooth it was. I also like the weight of the brush and it makes it more comfortable to use. I also found it easier to rinse off, compared to my previous brush, though I feel a lot of the cream and foam gets hidden at the bottom of the brush. A good squeeze brings up the foam again if I need a 2nd run during the shave.
I can't say that I have tried lots of shave brushes. I used a Mason Pearson for decades before ordering my supply gear on kickstarter. I was sceptical about synthetic over natural badger fibers, however, I added this brush to the cart just in case it was a game changer. It turns out, "It Is!". Much stiffer bristles to give a quick, foamy lather. Really allows you to massage your face hairs pre-shave and lift them ready to go. When I reverted to my old brush a couple of times, it was a real let down. Took ages to get a mediocre lather and gave poor face prep. This brush makes an enjoyable shave experience.
I have never used one before, and I feel like I have been wrong my whole life. I was blind and now I can see. Freaking love it. I am not going back.
I absolutely love this shaving brush. The lather it produces has been so much better then other brushes I have. It is number one in my book.
I use this directly on my face , with dab of cream
Works up a great lather
Highly recommend this shaving brushaving brush holds a lot of shaving cream Recommend this brush.
After the first use, it still looks like new, that's not always the chase if you have them with badger hairs.
Great build quality. Works well and makes a thick foamy lather
