Woods of Windsor - Pure Bristle Brush

Item Description

I got this brush as a present from my dad when he learnt that I had started DE shaving (with the promise of his back-up Silvertip if I stuck with it :) ), it was a present to him IIRC, however research online shows a very good value price tag of around seven pounds and ninety five pence (7.95).

I have found this brush lathers well, hold lots of water, and for a good duration of time (it doesn't just dump a gallon as soon as it touches your soap), allowing a consistent lather, that lasts on the brush, without having to be refilled for every pass, as I had to with my drugstore Wilkinson. It has given me a good consistent lather with both soaps (L'Occitane and Wilkinsons) and with creams (Palmolive and Ingram). So far I've had minimal shedding (two strands, with about 3 weeks of use everyday).

It is just stiff enough to provide a decent feel, without feeling like a toothbrush being dragged across your face, although this hardness, seemingly prevents a 'wide' bloom when dry, and it retains much of it's factory shape. It only falls short of a perfect score for quality, because of a few hairs that have missed trimming, although these are easily remedied in a few seconds.

I have found that this brush has to be soaked thoroughly before use, to eliminate the tips hardness, but once you have it is a very nice and reliable tool, giving consistent results. I am impressed, for it's price I really don't think it can be beaten (at least in the UK).
