SOTD "FREE WEEK" May 10th - May 16th, 2021

The Anbbas synthetic brush is superb considering it's price...I also have a Anbbas Boar brush another great addition to my humble shaving brush collection. :thumbsup:
Definitely :) They make really good products, so it's pretty much a must-have, for any collection ;)

I have a couple of their metal bowls too :)
Didn't know that Biotherm ("Biotherm de Monaco," as I remember) was still around. Is it still made by L'Oreal?
Yes it is, and still very popular in Europe, i don't know about the rest of the world?!... L'Oréal, under their division of Luxury Products, took the Biotherm brand over in like 1970 :) Usually i love L'Oréal, for the functionality of their products, they just tend to have this horrible synthetic scent, but not the Biotherm :) It annoys me, that some say it has a strong scent, that is just rubbish, it has a masculine scent, but very subtle, and doesn't interfere when putting on a perfume etc :)
