Badger Shaving Brushes
The most common grades of badger hairs are pure, best, super, and silvertip. Badger hair is a lot softer and more pliable, therefore, when you make the lathering motions, there’s more give and spread on your brush, which means you’ll get a thicker lather. As a result badger hair brushes have the ability to absorb water naturally.Badger hair brushes will usually last a longer time than boar hair brushes, because boar hairs tend to break if bent too far. Badger hair is very flexible and should last longer.
DE Safety Razors
Most people experience a great reduction in irritation and a closer shave when switching to a safety razor. This is due to the design of the razors, the sharper blades, and your skin only being exposed to one blade at a time. Shaving with a DE Safety Razor is a much cheaper way to shave. You will also significantly reduce your carbon footprint as the blades are recyclable as they are made from steel.
The double-edged safety razor is a razor with a slant bar that can be used on both sides, with two open edges. The blade on the double-edged safety razor is slightly curved to allow for a smoother and cleaner shave.
Non-greasy, easily absorbed, it is suitable for use all year round. It is important to use a post-shave balm every time you shave. As this will help to restore your skin’s natural moisture balance. If you do not use a good quality post shave balm you may further dry out your skin.
Lathering Shave Bowl
People have used bowls to lather in for a long time, however lather bowls are purpose-built specifically to build shaving lather with a shaving brush. They’re usually distinguished by having a “rough” or textured inside-bottom to improve lather-making production.
