First post. This community is a great resource. However, the choices and characteristics of brushes are daunting for a newbie. I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction. I'm looking for a soft, smaller brush that won't break the bank. Right now i'm using a family handmedown but it's losing hair and I want to keep it in the family, so I want a new one to use/abuse.
Badger or Boar, doesn't really matter to me. I don't even know what I have. I'm looking for something that is soft on my skin and small for travel/storage in a small area.
I've seen a jager 236 on amazon, also a tweezerman badger, and the starter Omega boar.
Are these good brushes? Am I missing some obvious good ones?
