This Semogue 1305 Boar shaving brush can quickly create a rich lather using relatively little shaving soap. The brush is pre-soaked and then excess water is gently squeezed out. The brush is then used in a swirling manner to load the soap onto the tips of the brush until a paste forms. The soap is then worked into a lather by vigorously working the soap with the brush. This can be done either in a bowl or on the skin adding small amounts of water until the lather has peaks (approx. 2-3mins). Once the lather is created it is applied to the face or other area to be shaved. The 24mm synthetic shaving brush can be less sensitive to everyday use.
Using a shave brush on one’s skin produces a mild exfoliation. The greatest benefit from using a shave brush is the tendency to soften and lift facial hair before a shave. If you apply a shaving soap by hand it can mat hair or raise it unevenly resulting in a less smooth shave. Using a shave brush means a razor does not need to be pressed to the skin in order to provide a close shave.
