I have $20 vouchers so it was just nice seeing this at a sale. I cant remember how much, but I think it was $16. Anyway, I just wanted this as it was a retractable brush. It will be nice for travelling. So I got it, regret it. It is not a soft brush. I like the retractable part. But the brush is quite hard. I mean it is fluffy and “soft” but its prickly. I don’t like that. Plus the thing about retractable is that it is hard to wash. Cause water will just get inside and it may get stuck or something. Maybe its in my head, but it is just not as easy to clean as the others.
