I'm looking at and considering whether I'm interested in saving up for a Simpson Chubby 2 in Best.
My question is about this, from Simpson...
I always swirl and mash my brush into my face during my face lathering and have no plans to change what I do.When shaving try using paint brush back & forth strokes for lather building rather than circular 'mashing' motions which tend to put additional stress and pressure on the bristles. Excessive force can snap or dislodge bristles from their glue bond.
I'm aware that other manufacturers and vendors sometimes say much the same thing Simpson says. My question is whether what they say is something a potential buy who is also a masher, splayer, and face scrubber has to actually be concerned about?
I'd just blow off what Simpson says, but these brushes cost well over a buck fifty. I'd hate to buy one and ruin it.
Also, do they sometimes make this Best with handles other than the ivory? Other colors I mean of course.
