Birchbox Breakdown

If you haven’t felt the touch of pure-grade badger hair, your life is a song half-sung. These woodland whiskers will massage your own into ultrasoft submission, rendering them ripe and ready for your blade to cut. With an ergonomic handle—made for comfort and endurance—this time-honored staple is truly a cut above.

How to Use

After dipping the brush in warm water, remove the excess droplets by gently smoothing the bristles from the handle-down. Create a small divot in the center of the bristles and add a tiny dollop of shaving cream. Lather up your face using small circular motions, and shave as usual. After you’ve finished, rinse and hang the brush bristles-down (if possible), allowing gravity to help it dry.

Very nice brush
Purchased

Purchased the Art of Shaving system last year for hubby after seeing an in-store demo. I never realized the difference a brush makes. It fluffs up the cream and allows you to use a lot less product. Also, the use of the preshave oil and the brush/cream combination gave the best shave I've ever had. (I had to test out his products too. )

Back to the basics

Great shaving brush. It makes applying shaving cream easier and lathers the cream up really well. It probably only lengthens the entire having process by about a minute (at most). A nice brush can last up to about a decade, just make sure to rinse it and to let it dry properly.

Bought two!
Purchased

One for me, and one for my significant other. We both love this brush! Watch the birchbox video on how to use the brush to maximize the experience. Changed my morning routine for the better.

Makes a good lather

My wife bought this for me as a gift. I have been using it every day since and it does the trick. I am able to make a good bowl lather with it. My only complaint is that because the handle is plastic, when your hands are wet it can get a bit slippery. I think this would be even better if it had a different texture or grip. So far I have not had problems with shedding and the original animal scent goes away as expected as you continue to use the brush. Make sure you rinse it well and hang it upside down to dry and you should be able to use it for a long time.
