At Smitten we are proud to carry Parker brand shaving brushes. This brush is Synthetic bristle brush. It has a dense bristle head that helps with increased lather and skin exfoliation. Our brushes also come with a stand so that you can keep your brush upside down while drying, this is crucial to extend the life of your brush. With proper use and drying this brush will last for years! Also, with use you should occasionally clean your brush to remove soap scum and sanitize it.
For those new to traditonal wet shaving here is a Utube link to Nick Shaves. He has a good instructional video on use and care for brushes.
