Product Description

Progress Vulfix 403 'Mayfair' Bristle & Badger Shaving brush 


The Progress Vulfix 403 Mayfair is part of the London Series of brushes. Old English classics at their best. The 403 has a dense loft of excellent grade pure badger hair mixed with pure bristle to give a firmer brush perfect for both soaps and creams and excellent exfoliation of the skin prior to shaving. The loft has fabulous water retention to ensure a luxurious lather.  The handle is a simple design classic with a straight format overlapping a slightly flared base to perfectly finish off the classic look. The handle is lathe turned pure resin with a 'faux ivory' finish reminiscent of the most traditional of shaving brushes. All Progress Vulfix Brushes are Hand Made in Isle of Man, British Isles.

How to use

The brush bristles should be wet (not soaking) before use. Load the loft with soap or cream and apply to the areas to be shaved, using a strong circular motion. This softens the hairs and also raises them ready for shaving.

We strongly recommend the following aftercare for your brush; When finished always rinse the brush under hot water (especially at the base of the bristles) to remove any remaining soap residue which can result in damage to the bristle and cause early shedding of the loft. The brush should then be stored loft facing down to dry. This can be achieved by using a shaving brush stand and prevents the bristles rotting at the base due to moisture.

Recommended for

Both shaving creams and shaving soaps and all skin types.

Grooming tip

WAlways Store your shaving brush with the loft/bristles poiting down, to allow excess moisture to drain away naturally. This prevents damage caused by damp and helps to extend the life of your brush.

  1. Yup, pretty near perfect and a bargain 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Dec 2019

    The two previous reviewers are right! Also the first one’s father who I hope is still enjoying his brush at 83. Like him I can’t remember having a better one and the combination of soft fine badger with bristle for a bit of firmness I find ideal. A pleasure to use with the palmolive shaving sticks (also very good value so long as you can still find ‘em) for a nice easy lather even in the hard London water.

  2. perfect brush 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Apr 2019

    Without doubt my favourite shaving brush yet (out of many over the years, most far more pricey) Unassuming it may be, but the Mayfair is a perfect size and shape to navigate my face, the bristles soften swiftly yet retain their strength and the little brush works even the most recalcitrant shaving soap into a lather effortlessly. It’s also a great size for travelling. An excellent service too from Maguire’s, as ever.

  3. Best present ever 5 Star Review
