I bought this little brush back in 2014 when I was obsessed with Koyudo. They are my first ever special Japanese brushes, well used and cherished. For this facial brush, it's been a great journey of 4 years so I'm confident that my now review is unbiased. Pro: - Works great with foam cleanser like Shiseido Perfect Whip. Produces tons of foam to a great effect. - Aesthetically pleasing - All natural, hygienic and hypoallergic. Easy to clean with mild soaps, saponified oils or organic shampoos. Cons: - The long fibers are floppy and not dense enough. It's terrible if used with solid cleanser like Olive bars, Banila Clean it zero... etc. - It doesn't hold water, dripping wet everywhere and generally useless during rinsing. I'd like to soak warm water on my face to feel the steam working on my pores and release the skin tension. So far, Konjac sponge works much better for that purpose. - The dry brush is coarse. I get it's never meant to use dry but it looks so pretty!! and fluffy!!! and... Nope, too scratchy. Overall, it's a good brush for the intended purpose. I would recommend it if your routine involves a liquid/foaming cleanser.

POINT1 : Produces Rich & Creamy Lather
Washing your face with fine rich lather is very important. Heart-shaped brush and its fine hair ends are best for making fine lather. The brush takes in air from the dented part of the heart which is why it can create tiny fine bubbles.
POINT2 : Wash Properly but Gently
This heart-shaped brush fits into the contours of your face, making it easy to clean in the lines around the nose. This brush is made from both goat hair and PBT (polybutylene terephthalate), but only the goat hair touches the skin. Now this is Koyudo's craftsmanship. This brush works wonderfully for sensitive areas as well.
POINT3 : The Effect of Massage
This heart shaped brush fits into any part of your face. Unlike when you use your hands to wash, it feels like heaven to use a brush. If you move the brush along your blood flow, it will improve your blood circulation and may give you a healthy glow to your face, also helping to lift up your cheeks.
Lather is one of the most important things when you wash your face. The fine and elastic lather has an important role which sucks up the dirt of skin. However, it's difficult to extract the sebum and the make-up which stuck to the inside of pores completely. Since this brush has a goat hair made of natural material, you can wash your face gently with hair ends moderate elasticity to your pore so that your skin may not be hurt. Additionally, this brush can make a nice, creamy lather.
