Hey everyone. Been lurking for a while but decided it's time to get involved!
I started DE shaving only a month ago, but already love it and am never going back to a cartridge.
I bought a Fatboy and Astra blades along with a Tweezerman brush, using Proraso (old formula) cream in a bowl. The Tweezerman brush works quite well for me - so I must have gotten a rare "good" one, but it's so limp (lack of backbone?) that it's just brushing the lather on, not massaging the facial hair. Time to upgrade.
Last night, I decided to order an SOC in boar. It seems to get rave reviews here and appears to have a strong backbone, which would help with the massage part of the lather application, as well as being good for bowl lathering.
Is my logic sound on this? (I feel like I've gone cross-eyed from reading so many posts about brushes here!)
Thanks for your insight.
