Arrow Product details

Italy, where they supply the traditional barbiere (barber) is a great source for the finest shaving brushes. Made from boar bristles (boar offers greatest resistance and is superior at lifting the beard for a closer cut) this is a great introductory shaving brush. The bristles have to be a balance between the right degree of resistance and softness, with the ability to raise the beard and generate a fine, rich lather. Also extremely important is a stand for the brush as the bristles should always dry down and not up to the handle. This is more hygienic and helps prevent the bristles falling out. Always dry your brush by hanging on the stand provided.

Comes with own stand and FREE Shave Crème buddy tube 15ml (up to 20 shaves!)

Why use a shaving brush?
A shaving brush is one of the best tools to achieve a smooth, close shave.
• Used by top barbers to facilitate the optimum shave
• A good shaving brush lifts the beard away from the face, generates a fine, rich, creamy lather without too much aeration and helps remove dead skin cells, making a close shave easier. Only the shave crème in contact with skin and beard matters, all else is wasted!
• A good brush is essential: the bristles have to be the right balance between resistance to lift the beard and softness to generate a fine, rich creamy lather
• Shaving Stand: Drying the brush on the stand is the most hygienic and helps prolong the life of the bristles
• Italy is a great source for the finest shaving brushes, where they have the traditional barbiere (barber)

How to use

Directions
1. Before using the brush for the first time wash with soap and water and then rinse in clean water. When you are ready to shave, immerse bristles in clean, warm water and shake off excess.

2. Apply men-ü shave crème to the side of the wet brush or in the palm of a wet hand. Generate fine, rich creamy lather and distribute about the moistened area to be shaved in a circular motion (You may need to use a little more shave crème with a new shaving brush).

3. For a really smooth feeling – shave again. There may be enough crème left on the brush (another benefit of using a good quality shaving brush) or if not, just add a little more shave crème.

4. Rinse the brush in clean water after use and shake off excess (don’t use water that is too hot or leave in water). Always dry your brush by hanging on the stand provided. The bristles should always dry down and away from the handle as this helps promote the longevity of the bristles and is most hygienic.

Great shave, great value A great way to experience a proper shave without spending a fortune. This great value brush really lifts your stubble and the free shaving cream lasts ages as you only have to use a tiny amount to create a rich, smooth, creamy lather. Used with a good, sharp blade (I prefer the King Of Shaves Azor), this is as close to a barber shop shave you'll get and it won't cost you the earth. Shaving becomes a joy rather than a chore. Once you try this brush and cream I guarantee you won't go back to cheap, foul smelling foams and gels. March 13, 2010
Makes shaving an experience again... Going into an old school barber shop for a 'cut throat' shave will always be the defining shaving experience... but why not try to capture as much of that experience as possible in your own home. That's exactly what the Men-u brush allows you to do. The brush really helps your to lather up your shaving gel / crème perfectly and it helps to soften your hair or stubble which reduces the friction. Basically it helps you to shave more easily while being kinder to your skin. As the other reviewers have said, over time some bristles will fall out, this is only to be expected when you use it often. If you last 8 months before any fall out, you have done well. The Men-u shave crème feels great on my skin, I only wish that Boots sold it separately. June 1, 2013
Keep your receipt ! I was given one of these as present last Christmas to replace my faithful Boots own shaving brush that had lasted 15 years and the bristles had worn to a stump. It was lovely to use at first but after a month or so, despite following the instructions about rinsing, hanging upside down on the stand etc, it began to shed bristles - about 6-10 each use - and has done so every day since ! At this rate, I doubt whether it will last the year and unfortunately the receipt is long gone. A real disappointment. July 28, 2015
