This is a very nice, soft, small brush. Mine has held onto all of its hair and has whipped up both soap and cream. It's definitely not a stiff brush, I love my Omega boar brushes and and can really scrub with them, this will not do that. That's not a bad thing, just a characteristic of the brush.
I bought this after becoming frustrated with a brush costing over twice as much that just never stopped shedding. I did some research and found that Omega puts out quality brushes. Having a couple of their boar brushes (that I love) and considering the low cost I thought I'd give it a try. I'm glad I did, it's as good if not better then my $130 brush. It's just as soft and not shedding at a fraction of the cost, excellent brush.
