10 days till Christmas…And we’re badgering you about brushes!

When shopping for a new shaving brush, there are several factors to consider, and a wide range of brush types to choose from. But don’t be overwhelmed! Selecting the brush that will work best for you may not be what works best for someone else; we are each unique, as our brush should be! There are three types of shaving brushes available: badger hair, boar bristle, and synthetic, with badger hair largely the most popular choice. Badger hair has been used for centuries in the manufacturing of top quality shaving brushes, predominantly because of its heavy water absorbency. This is essential to accomplishing a clean, close wet shave, and leaving the skin fresh and smooth. Using a brush, wet from warm water, to mix your shaving soap or cream introduces air that will work up a rich lather, helping you get the consistency you desire without going through too much product. It massages the surface of your skin, raises the beard hairs and enables your razor to glide across your face with ease. Furthermore, many badger brushes are quality graded based off appearance and softness of the hairs, with the common classifications “Pure”, “Best”, “Super”, and “Silvertip”. Here is a breakdown: PURE BADGER Pure badger hair is the most readily available grade of hair since it covers a large percentage of the badger’s body. Because of its high availability, pure badger hair is the least expensive of badger types and makes a great starting point for a beginning shaver who wants to learn wet shaving before moving on to a higher quality and more expensive brush. Pure badger typically ranges in color from dark tan to black, and is usually coarser in texture than higher grade hair. Brushes filled with pure badger are often manufactured with the tips trimmed to form the final shape of the brush loft. This makes the tips of the hair blunt and gives them a scratchier feel on the face that some men find appealing for exfoliation. The courser texture of pure badger also makes it very useful for lathering soaps well because of its ability to agitate the surface of the soap very easily. Some manufacturers offer variations of pure, such as black badger brushes, which comprise only the darkest hairs to create brushes that have longer lofts and more stiffness in the overall feel of the knot. Over time the tips of pure badger hair will soften and feel a bit more broken in, but will never be as soft on the face as higher grades of badger hair. BEST BADGER Best badger offers a significant improvement in feel and quality over pure. Best grade hair is harvested from large areas of the badger, including the belly area of the animal. The hair ranges in color from lighter brown to gray and has more color separation in the length of the hair,...

When you think of Jack Black, skincare isn’t the first thing that jumps to mind. Bulging bellies, unkempt locks, eating a plate of nachos in one bite because if they’re connected it counts as one? Sure, but grooming god? Not. That’s why Jack Black Skin Care for Men didn’t make sense. Until I found out that he has nothing to do with it. “I’m not happy,” Jack said. “I haven’t pursued legal action, but it’s bull****.” The companies name doesn’t appear to have been inspired by the funnyman (Jack Black Skin Care for Men was created in 2000 when Jack was just breaking out in films like “High Fidelity”) but its Jack Black Beard Lube does sound unintentionally comical. Here’s what makes Jack Black different from other brands: Fuss Free. Jack Black know men don’t want to hassle with an overly complicated routine. Products are simple and easy to use, yet multi-functional, so you get multiple skin benefits in a one easy step. Man Focused. Every product is designed specifically for a guy’s needs. From a superior shave to complete body maintenance, formula’s are built from the ground up with a distinct focus on what men want from a product. Each product is designed to provide immediate, noticeable results, and an improvement in the overall quality and condition of skin. NO FRILLS. Jack Black know men want products that look and smell masculine. Jack Black has a rich heritage, based on masculine icons like upscale scotch and cigars. So, packaging is distinctive, but always portable and user-friendly. And, most importantly, their lightweight, high quality formula’s go on easy and absorb fast. Trustworthy. You can trust that Jack Black products are built with integrity – formula’s are fragrance-free, colorant-free, cruelty-free and dermatologist tested. Many are PureScience™ Formula’s, Paraben-free and packed with certified organic ingredients. Treat yourself to effective, researched skincare product from Revolucion and get a JACK BLACK MALE GROOMING PRODUCT...
