Don't worry, once you catch the bug you'll be itching to buy a better razor and blades in no time.

I have seen these at AEON Big Damansara, perhaps the one in SJ may have it.
I'm pretty sure they're less than RM10 each but I'm not sure if they are any good.


Or try Pasaraya Haniffa (Level 1) in Jln Masjid India...

Check out synthetic brushes from Yaqi.
They supply OEM brushes to retailers like Maggard and knots to artisans like Wolf Whiskers.

In MY, there's only:

1) Super cheap brushes like the SuperMax for the Indian market
2) The one by Body Shop with 1st gen synthetic fibers
3) And, the ones by Truefitt & Hill that only comes in dated designs/colors.

If you are not particular about scents check out Godrej and Vi-John creams at Haniffa and Mydin.
They are cheap and work great.

Got the Body Shop Shaving Cream. Smells good, lathers good and provides really good lubrication.

I would have spent more of the budget on the hardware side of things though.
The razor and brush will last a long time unlike the cream which will be gone in a few months...

Hey guys, wanna ask, Im one of those guys who can't grow facial hair. Instead it's like short curly pubic hairs growing out of my face and chin, would I benefit from using a safety razor? My friend told me to just pick up one from The Hive. But I don't know where to start on shaving cream and stuff, I see everyone here spending like RM50-60 on cream and another on brush. Is there a more economical way to start?

Currently doing well with those gilette shavers, but was just thinking of trying out something new since the razor packs are cheaper in the long run. I don't have to shave much most of the time.
