A shaving brush is one of the most important shaving accessories you can have. Unfortunately, this is often overlooked. The best shaving brushes are made of badger hair. Badger hair scrubs the skin, opens the pores and stimulates the hair follicles so that the hair stands straight. This allows you to have a closer shave.
