About Badger Shaving Brushes
With closed eyes, you breathe in the heady scent of eucalyptus emanating from a rich lather of shave cream. You are not tipped back in a barber's chair, but creating the experience in your own home with the help of a badger shaving brush. The soft and pliable badger hairs trap more water and give you a thick lather. As you swirl shaving cream onto your face, the fine badger hairs gently lift and coat each beard hair. This added step in your shaving process feels luxurious, but on the practical side, it also preps your face for a closer and less painful shave. Additionally, the brush lightly exfoliates, loosens trapped beard hairs, removes dead skin, and leaves your skin silky smooth. The hair shaft flexibility of a premium silvertip badger shave brush also means that individual hairs do not break as easily as synthetic bristles. Because of this, an antique brush that has been cared for works just as well as a new brush. Vintage badger shaving brushes also have unique details, like carved wooden or ivory handles that add an old-school charm to your morning shaving routine. A brand new badger brush has a slightly gamey scent, which is a good way to tell that it is authentic, and the scent goes away after three or four uses. Make your daily shave a luxury experience by shopping for a badger shaving brush from the vast inventory of men's shaving tools available on eBay.
