So I discovered early on that the badger seems to irritate my face. I got a Body Shop brush and have been using it since.
Now looking to upgrade. I've read very good things about the Jack Black brush. Any other recommendations? Up to $100 is acceptable.
TGN has also some very nice synthetic knots. I have not used them yet, but will soon. I think there are some guys here that used this knot, and I think I remember they liked it.
