To brush, or not to brush -- That is the question
A shaving brush can be a key commodity to your morning shave routine. Usually the best shaving brushes are made from badger hair (no animals are harmed there). The idea of the shaving brush is that when run under warm water and applied with a proper shave cream, the rotation of the brush on your face (circular motions) will actually lift up and get underneath your beard hair. Even 24 hours after a shave from the day before. The outcome is a closer shave. this actually works! There are many shaving creams out there and can be hard to choose the right one for you. "The Art of shaving" was one of the first products I personally used many years ago. There's "Cremo" a great go-to if you don't want to refinance your home to get your hands on it. Typically the ideal sweet spot for price is somewhere between $15 to $25 for a great feel good shave cream. You can choose many scents from sandle-wood to lavender, to my fav. eucalyptus. Do your research on what you think best fits you! Now...the brush. Brushes vary in price. Usually the average price sits around $35 to $55. There's always synthetic which works ok too, it really depends on how much time and money you want to spend on your morning ritual. If your adamant on using the good ole canned stuff well that's fine too. Trust me, give this a try, I guarantee you wont be disappointed.
