Pros: Good to keep the face protected. I feel safe when shaving with it.
Cons: This thing can get thirsty real quick!
Just when I thought it had enough water, it'll dry and get flaky, but I'll take it as my fault. I thought I had sensitive skin but more so just dry sakin as some scented products don't harm my face really. It's good to shabe with in case you want a strong scented AS or balm to use after so scents for collide.

It's for 4 Star for how much I get in the tube as well as the quality.

Pros: Good backbone, soft bristles, solid handle, very little bristle loss
Cons: None for me
Oh man I really like this brush. It was the second badger hair brush I ever shaved with and the first two-band badger. This has the perfect amount of backbone and density for me. The bristles are soft but still have a bit of scritch. I've been using mostly boar since I started DE shaving a year ago, and I kind of like a little scritch so this brush is perfect for me. I find it so easy to lather soaps and creams with this brush. It's a real pleasure. The sale price was right too at $13!

I like to splay my brushes a few times while I face lather. This brush has just the right amount of splay with it's 55mm loft. I'm still getting used to badger brushes, so my opinion may change, but for know I like this two-band badger even better than the Yaqi slivertip I got. There was some shedding of the bristles but not much. That's pretty much stopped now that I've been using it for a while. The handle has a nice solid feel to it, is easy to grip, and looks great!

Looking forward to a lot more shaves with this brush

Hey @cytus I picked it up from AliExpress on their once-a-year Nov 11th (11.11) sale. Regular price is $30 but for the sale it was just $13. I picked up four badger brushes for the price of two basically! Be aware that they sell out fast at the sale price and that shipping is slowwwwww. Like one month slow. But hey, it was a great deal :)
Pros: Great face feel
Ergonomic handle
Lathers up a storm
Cons: Not a lot of back bone if you prefer it
Picked up my first badger brush from Yaqi during the AliExpress 2019 11.11 sale. Figured I’d write a review of my first experience with a badger brush.

First off, this was not the original brush I ordered. I actually ordered the Red Resin Silvertip, but they sent me this one by mistake. I wrote them and they told me they’d send me the red resin without having to return the metal-handled one which I thought was more than fair. I’m still waiting for that to arrive though.

Upon first opening the box, the brush felt very nice in my hand. The handle is long, fairly heavy, and easy to grasp. It reminds me a bit of a make-up brush actually. The handle design makes it easy to control. That was an unexpected plus since this is the first time I've used this shape of handle.

Because of the curve in the middle of the brush it doesn’t fit squarely in either of the brush holders I have, so it hangs at a bit of an angle, but not a showstopper at all. Overall, the handle has a nice ergonomic design to it. Big plus there.

I did the initial washing of the brush with some shampoo and boy did that baby have some funk to it once it got wet. I had read about the smell but never actually smelled it before. We’re talking wet-animal smell for sure. It's since faded considerably.

As far as the knot goes – it’s pretty dense and lathers wildly. It took lathering to a whole new level for me on all my soaps. There's not a whole lot of backbone to it, but it's very soft, and since I face lather, it feels great on my face. The splay is wide so I can lather up my face very quickly.

This brush is a pleasure to use and I've been using it a lot since I've got it. Overall, I’m very pleased with my first silvertip badger brush.

Pros: Nice lather, slickness, and scent.
Cons: Not a fan of the plastic tub container it comes in.
This was the very first soap I used when I started DE shaving. The scent is very unique to me I guess for that reason. It's very unmistakable in a good way. I find it easy to lather and the slickness is great. It's a hard soap and after trying softer soaps I find that i actually prefer hard soaps. The only negative for me is the plastic tub the puck comes in. I find it a bit clumsy to lather from so I usually put it in a bowl. Wish it came in a container more similar to Arko but this certainly isn't a showstopper. It's a great soap at a great price.
