It’s become trendy to use a shaving brush. We’re moving on from a purely convenient, functional shave. It’s a retro throwback to our grandfather’s pride mixed with a modern treat yo’self aesthetic. But do shaving brushes make a difference, really, to your shave? Or is this just a marketing ploy, or a new bit of effort to spend money and time on?
The reason shaving brushes have become so popular is that they really do make a difference to your shave, and your day. Men have been enjoying a much closer, easier and more satisfying shave with less irritation since starting to use a shaving brush. And it doesn’t hurt that it makes you feel like a very dapper gent.
But why do shaving brushes make a difference?
It’s not exactly the science bit, but there are plenty of reasons shaving brushes make a big difference to your shave. Rather than just slapping on some shaving foam, taking a moment to stir up a good lather with a shaving brush results in a whole new level of shaving.
The bristles of the brush pump up your skin, like giving it a little exfoliation. It gets a freshening up and at the same time the bristles of your brush prep the bristles on your face. Lifting them up and scrubbing off some dead skin means less ingrown hair. Softening up your stubble means a smoother shave with less irritation so the razor can slice right through. And because the hairs have been shook up and swirled around by your brush the razor can catch more of them and cut much closer.
But isn’t this expensive and time consuming? Actually, it doesn’t take long just to add a moment of lathering up with a shaving brush, compared to the difference it makes. And it doesn’t have to be expensive. Our shaving brushes are great value and long lasting.
Once you give it a go and see how much of a difference shaving brushes make you won’t go back. Enjoying that smooth, close shave with better looking skin and less irritation. You’ll wonder why you didn’t make the switch earlier.
