For years I've wanted to try this method of shaving. When I saw this item at such a great price, I decided it's time to try it. And good thing I did. It makes such a nice creamy lather, and the soap lasts for months! Just wet the brush, then shake off the excess water. Swirl it around the soap and lather up! It's simple to use and I get a great shave! This makes a fantastic gift for any man in your life. Make sure you buy a couple of bars of soap too. I will NEVER buy those stupid cans of shave foam ever again! It's the most economical way to shave!

I can remember my grandfather shaving with soap, brush, and a straight razor, so when I saw this set on sale, I decided to get it, as kind of a connection to my grandfather. I have used it for a couple of weeks now and feel like I can make some factual comments. First, my brush did shed a few bristles, but nothing I would consider major. Next, if you are new to this way of shaving, as I was, be prepared for a little adjustment time. My first time, I felt like my face was sunburned after I finished shaving. I usually shave every other day, so my beard is a bit course when I do shave. I experimented more with the soap afterwards and discovered I have better success with a lot of moist lather and let it set for a minute before starting to shave. My second and subsequent shaves have been much more successful and comfortable. I use a regular 4 blade razor, but with the brush and the soap in it's cup sitting on the sink counter, I still see my grandfather's shaving set in my mind's eye and see him stropping his straight razor and deftly shaving with it. So, maybe I'll be trying a straight razor next, to complete this set. Bottom line, it's kinda fun to shave this way and adds some variety to life. I'd say, go ahead and give it a try.

      DEFINITELY THE WAY TO GO,YOU CAN FEEL THE LUBRICATION IT GIVES TO YOUR SKIN. SO EASY TO USE AND PROBABLY THE MOST ECONOMICAL. YOU CAN'T BEAT THE PRICE ALL AROUND. I BOUGHT 2 REFILLS WITH MY ORDER.AT LESS THAN$2 EACH. COULD I AFFORD NOT TO? WHO KNOWS WHEN I'LL GET TO USE THEM. ALL I CAN SAY IS GO FOR IT!

        I love the shave soap in this set, and the cup is a bit nicer than the old "mug" styles, but the brush in this set is horrible. I've been using it for around 2 months now, and it loses more quills today than when it was new. I started out pulling 2-3 quills off my face in the beginning... yesterday I pulled at least 10 off.

            This product is great. I just bought it and it has my skin feeling extra smooth. I haven't tried any more of the expensive brands so I cant really compare it to anything else, but I know for the price this set is well worth it

            Bought this set not expecting too much and can't believe how good it really is.
            Brush loses some quill initially but has been rock solid since then and the soap gives a nice, close shave.
            I've spent ten times as much on a brush and it wasn't any better than this one.
            The reason I got this was because I had a fire in my apt and it destroyed everything. Needed a new shaving brush but was not prepared to spend a lot.
            Seriously, this set is a gem.

            Purchased Van Der Hagen Premium shave set for my husband, he absolutely raved over this product. He has tried Herban Cowboy, but prefers this over that product. He says he never go back to regular shaving cream or gels. He loves how this product protects and conditions his skin, and the soap seems to last an incredibly long time. There for, this is an extremely economical luxury. A must try!
