10 Best Selling Shaving Brushes

A good shaving brush is the backbone of a classic wet shave. You might have the right blade and right razor. You might even have zeroed in on your favorite soap and scent; however, without a shaving brush to lather that soap into a frothy lather to protect your face, you won’t get the benefits you desire from a wet shaving experience. That is where shaving brushes comes in. Brushes come in all shapes, colors, sizes, and hair types so finding the perfect fit can be a challenge.  But fear not! Other have gone before you on this road. Here are 10 Best Shaving Brushes from West Coast Shaving that are much beloved by our customers.

G. Sacco - February 11, 2019

I purchased an Omega 10275 boar brush from WCS about 4-5 weeks ago. It was stiff when I first opened the package which was expected. I researched a break in process on B&B forums and the Omega website.
Settled on immersing the bristles in cold water and leaving in the fridge for two days. After shaking out the water and brushing the bristles on a towel for numerous times I figured it was good to use.
By the way I never did get that boar animal smell at all!
The next morning I was ready to use the brush. I let the bristles soak in warm water as I showered then shook out the water from the brush and whipped up a great lather in seconds on a Williams puck. The brush worked nicely evenly distributing the lather while working the slickness into my stubble. It is not a large brush but for me it is the perfect size – I absolutely love this brush! Probably will not be the only brush I own but I will enjoy this brush for a long time, you will not be disappointed if you buy one.
