There was a time when beards were the norm, think medieval England or the crusades - times when priorities were conquering and ruling empires rather than being well groomed. And then as time went by, advanced grooming tools made shaving much easier and cheaper, making way to the clean-shaven look. Today, we've got a resurgence in beards above and beyond that of the wise old men category, by and large from the "Movember" movement for Cancer awareness. It has really made a big impact over the years as most men have a new found love for the beard, considering it to be a manly add-on worth the added trouble.
History and trends aside, we'd like to introduce a new brush from Kent Brushes of England - their all new old beard brush. After a hiatus of 100 years, they've re-introduced their beard brush with added beauty to that of old. Practical, simple to use and designed for those requiring serious help in grooming their beard. After a couple weeks of use, the brush easily handles an unkempt beard, cleans things up and improves appearance. The natural boar bristles are soft, yet strong enough to handle the toughest of hair. Similar to suede brushes for shoes that restore nap, this beard brush restores and refreshes - a good feeling when you're growing your beast out. Best of all, it's small enough to fit in your pocket so you can use at your discretion. Don' forget, a little beard oil goes a long way in nourishing, try something from Woody's or The Art of Shaving.
So far we love it! And we'll report back on longevity down the road. We might consider offering this in our shop, please fill in the form below if you're interested in this grooming essential.
