    Unfortunately, I purchased it before joining this forum. I see in the Brushes sticky that PlanoMan recommends against beginners buying this type brush because they are stiff and lose bristles over time.

    This brush is too stiff and prickly for my face. By the second and third pass, it's not enjoyable at all. Any recommendations? Anything decent in drug stores or department stores? I don't care what the hair material is now, just so it's softer. I'll order online if that's the best avenue to take, but I hate waiting.

    Looks like it has a pure badger brush. They are the lowest of badgers and some are "prickly". If you want to try a very inexpensive synthetic, this one on Amazon. If you have Prime, 2 day delivery..........

    Thanks. Have you used this brush yourself? I don't mind spending some money, but inexpensive is good, too.

    I use Maggard Razors website for almost everything. Take a look.

    I personally have decided I prefer synthetic brushes.

    Good luck!
