Considered a revolution in shaving brush technology by its creators, the men-ü DB Premier Shaving Brush is constructed with synthetic brushes which offer greater resistance to lift the beard for a closer cut and are also non-absorbent so that they need less cream to create the fine, rich lather necessary for an optimal shave. The movement of the bristles over the face lifts the beard away from the skin, helps remove dead skin cells and facilitates a closer shave. The set includes a chrome shaving brush stand which allows the bristles to dry for enhanced longevity and hygiene, plus a FREE 15ml tube of men-ü shave crème which works alongside your brush to create an aerated foam which exfoliates the skin, leaving you looking and feeling sharp and fresh after every shave. – L.R. Directions for use: Before using the brush for the first time wash with soap and water and then rinse in clean water. When you are ready to shave, immerse bristles in clean, warm water and shake off excess. Apply men-ü shave crème to the side of the wet brush or in the palm of a wet hand. Generate fine, rich creamy lather and distribute about the moistened area to be shaved in a circular motion (You may need to use a little more shave crème with a new shaving brush). For a really smooth feeling – shave again. There may be enough crème left on the brush (another benefit of using a good quality shaving brush) or if not, just add a little more shave crème. Rinse the brush in clean water after use and shake off excess (don’t use water that is too hot or leave in water). Always dry your brush by hanging on the stand provided. The bristles should always dry down and away from the handle as this helps promote the longevity of the bristles and is most hygienic.
