What a unique one of a kind gift for the man of your dreams....or your husband or boyfriend.........2.5 ounces of fragranced shaving soap in a reusable hand made, hand painted ceramic bowl, using Vetiver fragrance, a genuine Badger Shaving Brush mounted in a hand made, hand painted ceramic holder. I made the handle and dish in my ceramic shop, hand painted them with a drippy blueish greenish brown glaze and fired both in my kiln. The overall length of the handle and brush is 5 inches. The set is packaged in a re-purposed unique cigar box. No SLS here, just pure and simple soap that lathers well to help get a close shave.

Badger is the most expensive and rare type of bristle hair used in shaving brushes. The tips on this hair appear white naturally, without bleaching. A "flared" bristle load gives results in the brush's fluffy appearance and lends the brush its ability to hold a large amount of water. Due to its water retention capacity, this brush can create well-formed shaving lather quickly and easily. My hubby has compared the quality of this brush equal to or better than a well known chain selling a similar brush for $180.00.

Benefits of using a shave brush.

A fibrous bristle load holds significant amounts of water which mix with the soap lifted from a shaving mug or scuttle. The more water a brush holds, the moister and richer a lather will be. Thicker and more emollient lather translates to less razor skipping and dragging.

Bringing a shave brush across one's skin produces a mild exfoliation. Because a shave brush is most often used with a glycerin-based soap, this effect often replaces the pre-shave routine of washing and applying lotion to the face.

The greatest benefit from shave brush use is the tendency to soften and lift facial hair before a shave. Shave brush use, however, requires a circular motion to form a lather suitable for a shave. Therefore, a razor does not need to be pressed to the skin in order to provide a close shave.
