While trying to get my Proraso Brush ready for shaving, I was soaking it in NB Face Wash. Well I was wiping it up one more time to leave it before I went to bed and I saw all the foam there and I was yet to wash my face before bed so just lathered the cold soap on my face with the brush. I took a few minutes and really scrubbed. It was a very pleasant feeling. The cool crisp feeling of foamy soap and the invigoration of the bristles. Some night, if you've got some extra time on your hands give it a try, it's nice.
