I'm curious... for those that use synthetic brushes... what's your favorite for face lathering?

The H.I.S! I enjoy it for face lathering, but I know I'm in the minority.

Muhle Black Fibre 21mm (Basic 2 White handle)

This brush is super soft, but can still load hard soaps easily. I love the feel of this knot so much more than their silvertip fibre.

So far, the HIS synthetic (out of the 21mm Muhle silvertip fibre and Frank Shaving 24mm). I am anticipating new HIS brushes supposedly in the works and possibly a 28/54 Frank Shaving like Samjax's.

I use these:

  1. Muhle 25mm Silvertip Fibers XL
  2. Muhle 23mm Silvertip Fibers
  3. Muhle Silvertip Fibers, bespoke with a shorter loft
  4. Muhle Black Fibers
  5. Omega Syntex #49
  6. Omega Artificial badger
  7. FS 28*55mm (on order)
  8. Older Muhle synthetic (pre 2011)

The Silvertip Fibers work really well. I like them best.
In a ranking, these would be first.

The artificial badger of Omega and Muhles Black fibers would be in second spot. Nice, effective brushes.

I did not care for the Syntex or the older Muhle synthetics.
