Step up your shaving game with our Kingsley Badger Hair Shaving Brushes. Made of pure badger hair, these brushes are more flexible than boar bristle brushes and are suited for those who prefer wet shaving. The bristles massage the face as you prepare to shave, coaxing the hair outward for a better shave.
Never use a Shaving Brush before? Shaving Brushes have four main purposes:
- to generate a rich and warm lather by whipping air into the shaving cream or soap
- to soften and lift the facial hair off the face
- to add heat to the skin during the shaving process, which helps open pores and lubricate the skin
- and to gently exfoliate the surface of the skin to rid it of dead cells
How To Use: Dip or leave the brush in hot water until the bristle hairs are soaked or hold under a running facet. Do not tap too much excess water off the brush, the point is to retain as much water as possible to protect your skin during the shaving process. With circular motions, run the bristles over your shaving soap to generate a lather. The longer you whisk, the richer your lather. If you are using a lathering cream instead of soap, wet the tip of the shaving brush slightly, open the center of the brush, and apply two fingertips’ worth of cream into the center of the brush. Submerge the brush in hot water for about twenty seconds, then remove and begin lathering. Once the brush is on your face, it’s important to use the right amount of pressure. Too much can cause the bristles to flatten your hair to your face, and too little won’t provide enough friction for a good lather.
How To Clean: Rinse the brush thoroughly after each use and allow to air dry completely before putting away. Never enclose a damp brush. If any disagreeable odor exists on anew brush, wash in warm soap suds. Do not use strong detergents and do not boil these already sanitized brushes.
