As others have said, it is NOT to be used with a shaving brush. But that aside, it's very slick, very moisturizing, and smells divine! It makes an outstanding pre shave and aftershave balm. It kind of reminds me of the great Italian 3P (pre, present, post). As in you can use for all three things. I actually like this a bit better than 3P. Pinaud Clubman, if you're listening, PLEASE DO NOT EVER STOP MAKING THIS AWESOME STUFF! Once again, Pinaud Clubman makes a great product. Thank you. And Clubman Online is a great online store, he's got my business for life.
