OK, you can get a reasonably good shine from the brush, but in all honesty, I'd get less hair over the place using the cat instead. The quality is terrible. Just a few swipes of the brush and you're covered in hairs. Do not waste your money on this.

Gives a nice finish if you're not fussed about having to lay down a newspaper or you're floor will be covered in horse hairs. The applicator brush is fine but the buffing one loses hairs very easily so you may want to spend a little more or try an alternative for something that will shed less and maybe last longer. With exception of the above it still gives does a good job.

The bristles fall off these brushes far too quickly. I have used them just a few times but have already lost about a third of the bristles. Poor quality.

Also, when the item arrived it was apparent the packaging had been partially opened.

Pay the extra money and get the superior brushes.

A cheap suit can make a great impression on people, if a little attention to the details is carried out. Conversely scuffed shoes will make a good suit look unimpressive. To get those shoes shined up, you need a set of brushes and polish. Yes you can use cheap brushes sold in supermarkets, with their nylon bristles. But the finish they give will not be the best, and will take longer to achieve.

Switch to natural brush fibres like these horse hair brushes, and your shoes will shine up quicker, plus the finish you get will be much better. The quality of the brushes is great, and the great lollipop style brush is perfect for application. These brushes are a good investment if personal grooming and appearance is important to you, or you have a job where personal appearance is important.

Other tips for the best shine with brushes:

Use a good quality shoe polish like normal Kiwi shoe polish (brands like 'guardsman gloss' are budget brands that are harder to work into the leather)

Never use 'Parade Gloss' type substances, it contains the wrong mix of ingredients for brush polishing, and produces a greasy finish and is hard to work into the leather.

If your shoes are new, or they need an extra special shine, then a tiny amount of polish on a fingertip worked into the toecaps for 10 mins then given 10 mins hardening/drying time prior to brush polishing will work wonders.

Like polishing the paint finish on a car, the first few layers will be relatively rough, but as you lay up subsequent layers, the finish will get better with each and every layer of polish.

I bought this item and on first use bristles started to come out of the applicator brush. It looks like they hadn't put any glue in the holes to secure the bristles. In fact, i could pull several plugs of bristles straight out and the brush now looks like an old fashioned solitaire game! :-(

Spent more time picking up loose hairs from brush after polishing than I actually spent shining shoes. Hoping that eventually this will stop before too many fall out to allow continued use.

This is a really nice little kit. The brushes are well made and easy to handle. I think I would have paid extra to have it in a plastic or wood presentation box. As it happens, I found a polythene box in the kitchen cupboard, and the brushes fit in very nicely. This item would also make a nice, practical gift for Dads and Grandads.Delivery was prompt, I think it really deserves five stars. Nice people to deal with. Elisabeth.
Tip: If like me you get polish all over your hands, a strong, cotton Baby Wipe is very useful at shifting the stain.( among other things!)

The bristles on the brush come out when your buffing the shoe, which is very annoying, imagine picking of bristles when your shoe is caked in polish...
