A good quality shaving brush is essential for achieving a smooth, close, and satisfying shave. At lookfantastic, we stock a range of high-quality brushes from leading brands such as Bulldog, Baxter of California, Gentlemen's Tonic, NUXE, and Wahl.
Shaving brushes help to improve the overall quality of a wet shave by producing a rich lather. This softens and lifts your beard hair and results in a great post-shave feel. Furthermore, shaving brushes help to stimulate blood supply to your face and reduce the chances of in-growing hairs forming. They also gently exfoliate and massage your skin, removing dead skin cells which could result in unwelcome irritation.
Before using a new shaving brush for the first time, you'll need to wash it with soap and water. When you are ready to shave, rinse the bristles in warm water and shake off any excess. Apply your chosen cream, gel, or foam to the wet brush or the palm of your hand to generate a rich lather. You can then distribute this over the area you're shaving in a circular motion. To ensure your brush remains in an excellent condition, rinse it with clean water after every use.
Brushes are available with a range of bristle types, including synthetic, boar, and pure badger hair, so you may need to experiment with a few different products before you find the best match for you. Often featuring decorative handles, shaving brushes are typically small enough to be packed into an overnight bag or suitcase to make shaving while traveling easy.
