Retractable Mini Shave Brush07.07.2015 ByDWH The brush part is small (as expected) and a very nice balance of stiffness/softness for its size. On the other hand... By 'retractable', I was expecting a twist mechanism or similar, not a loose sleeve that can be pulled up past the brush head to fit it in the cap. Neither the sleeve nor cap have a solid click to lock in place. Also, only the bloom of the brush head keeps the sleeve back when the brush is exposed, again lacking any solid feel. I give the brush a 4 and the case a 2.5, but the size and price are right for a travel brush. Just be sure to give it a chance to dry later if you have to pack it up right after shaving.
