I find this a perfect starter brush. Is it great, no. Will it last forever, no. As long as you are aware that you are buying a $4, non badger brush it's fine. This is the brush you get to give to a newbie, this is not for the shaving connoisseur.
I made some shaving cream soap and ordered this brush for my husband. I was so excited when he started using the brush and my soap. Today I saw the brush in the bathroom--bristles detached from brush. I was so sad. My husband had only used this brush about 5 times. Reading the other reviews, doesn't seem like this is a great brush.....
Reply from Bramble Berry Hi Bridget! I'm sorry you're having troubles with bristles detaching from this brush. We have not had this problem and find this brush works well for apply shaving soap as seen in the Easy Whipped Shaving Soap Recipe. It sounds like you may have gotten a defective brush! I will email you personally to resolve this issue.
I have changed my review after receiving a replacement brush which I am happy to report is perfectly fine, it has not fallen apart like the other; I must have just gotten a dud the first time. The staff was quick to respond and address my issue and received the replacement in a mater of days. I am very happy with BB customer service and product quality.
I bought this to go with a shaving kit I made my Dad for his birthday and after using it for 2 weeks more than half of the bristles have fallen out.
Reply from Bramble BerryHi Kristi! I'm sorry this product wasn't your favorite. In our tests and recipes, we've found the bristles stayed in, as seen in the Easy Whipped Shaving Soap Recipe. However, your product may not be working properly. I'll be emailing you personally to discuss this!
I thought the brush was pretty small in size and the bristles were lacking and sparse. The plastic packaging was very scraped up, and I was embarrassed by it. I purchased several, and they were all scraped. I had to repackage it. It's ok for a starter brush, and ok for the price.

Smaller than I thought it would be, works good, looks good.
