Men-U Barbiere Shaving Brush and Stand (various colours)
Good barbers continue to use shaving brushes to facilitate the optimum shave. Italy is a great source for the finest shaving brushes, where they supply the traditional barbiere (barber). The bristles have to be a balance between resistance to raise the beard and softness to generate a fine, rich lather.
Why use a shaving brush?
1. Used in a circular motion this brush lifts the beard away from the face making it easier to cut, close. This is the best way to have a regular close shave because no abrasive scrubs are involved which can lead to irritation.
2. With the right shave crème a brush creates the best consistency of lather, makes it easier to apply and you can see where you have shaved.
3. Many gels and foams are too aerated and not efficient at point of contact between razor blade, skin and beard. What is in contact with skin and beard matters – all else is wasted! A well lubricated, smooth shave means less resistance, less irritation, less nicks and a longer lasting blade!
