First shave with the Chubby 1 in super and it is a completely different experience for me. Coming from larger brushes the first thing I noticed was that it takes longer to make lather then from my Vulfix 41 for example.

Though when the lather finally comes around, all I gotta say is wow! There’s globs of it and this tiny brush can hold a lot of water and lather as well. Don't let it's size fool ya.

In terms of the feel of the brush on my face, once again it is completely different then the Vulfixs'. It is very very densely packed and provides a nice scrubbing action as most members have mentioned before. It also is the perfect size for my face it is a pleasure to use. The only gripe I have about this brush compared to my larger brushes is the size of the handle. It kind of gets hard to hold on to after a while however this is not a big issue. I think I will end up keeping this brush, though after just one shave, I may have to wait a bit longer to find out for sure.

It was also my first time using the DR Harris Pink A/S splash and it was also a pleasure to use. No stinging clean rose scent and it goes on very light. If you haven't tried it already go out and get some!

Hey Tom, how would you desribe the scent of Booster's?
Hi Joe, for me it's difficult to describe, for my nose it smells a little bit like Mennen Skin Bracer Original, but it has a nice "barber-shop" scent and it's not long lasting, sorry if I can't describe it better.
