Great value Brush
Great shaving brush for the price, feels very similar to a real badger hair brush.
Best on med to soft soaps
Just Ok. Purchased as a travel brush
I use badger hair for my go to brush at home. I bought this synthetic brush to use as a travel brush as I though synthetic might travel better and dry faster. Have found this to be true, but I agree with some of the other reviews: It is a big springy. It's soft enough, but I find it is hard to get a good lather going. I am trying a variety of creams, and haven't yet tried it with a puck. I will report back if I find a soap or cream that I think works best.
First time brush
I don't know anything and have no reference for comparison. Gets the soap out of container onto my face. Looks nice. Seems well made. Expensive compared to using your hand which is free.
Excellent, Quality Brush
My choice was for a synthetic brush. The Omega HI-Brush appealed to me as a good value. It is Italian, quality made, and came in very nice packaging. The Omega raises a better lather than my boar hair brush and is far more comfortable. I couldn't recommend the Omega more highly. I am a serious amateur artist and am familiar with brushes and the characteristics of different brush material. Synthetic hair has advanced to the point of being a close equivalent to natural hair and is more durable.
