    Van Der Hagen Shave Set, 4 pc - Walmart.com
    Funny, I went to walmart earlier today and checked out that kit. Opened the box, felt the brush, etc. I think I'm going to get it, but I wanted to shop around before I did. I did however, buy a puck of van der hagen scented luxury shave soap while I was there....but it is in a green box. Why do you recommend against the green box one? O_O

    I already have a Black Ralf Aust - Solingen 5/8" coming in the mail.

    Is badger the stiffest bristled brush? I figure I'll end up buying the walmart kit and replacing the brush eventually.

    The green box soap smells like Caress, a ladys moisturizer soap

    I gave it a sniff test before buying. I liked the smell, which was surprising since I'm very picky when it comes to hygiene products(deodorant, cologne, etc). Earlier today I used it to make a lather to soften my face fur and to do a quick touch up. My girlfriend said it smelled citrusy, which I didn't pick up on. I think it smells more earthy. Either way, I like it. *shrugs*

    I actually like the VDH "greeen box" soap. It's a personal thing I guess.

    To answer your other question, typically boar brushes are stiffer and badger softer.
