Brush Your Bristles

Brush Your Bristles
21st October 2016 Digital

The shaving brush is making a comeback and we highly recommend you get on board.In this guide to shaving brushes, we’ll share three benefits to brushing your bristles and how to best use your new found tool.

  1. Using a brush acts as a gentle exfoliator. It will aid in removing dead skin cells from the surface of your skin and will lift your facial hair, getting underneath all of the tricky places & helping achieve a closer, smoother shave.
  1. It is cost effective. Using a shaving brush means you won’t need as much cream, making your product & your pennies go further.
  1. Whipping up the shaving cream in the palm of your hand creates a rich lather, further covering and protecting your skin ready for the razor and helping to prevent irritation.

How do you use a shaving brush?

Fill a sink full of hot water and dip your brush in. Flick off excess water but do not dry it, make sure the brush remains damp. When the brush retains hot water it allows the pores on your skin to open, loosening any particularly tough hairs. Lather up. Use a rich shaving cream, like our best-selling Traditional Shaving Cream which is infused with nourishing cocoa butter to keep your skin moisturised and reduce razor-drag. Whisk the cream for a maximum of 15-20 seconds and apply to all hairy areas on your jaw line. Find a good balance of pressure, do not press to hard – this may damage the bristle. Too gentle and you won’t create a good surface level of protection for your shave. After, rinse your brush and dry it thoroughly.
