When I was taking inventory of essentials for traveling over the upcoming holidays I came across my old shaving brush that I bought a few years back. I remembered when my father used to use one and seeing as their was only one brush available in the whole city I bought it. Not just the brush but the whole soap, bowl, and brush kit. The only problem was that I could never get comfortable using the cream and my face would always be a mess of cuts and scrapes. So my attempts at being retro. cool with my shaving have been shelved.
But that doesn’t change the fact that it’s a cool part of your morning get up kit.
