Rated 5 out of 5 by Alum block for post shave After shaving with AOS products my post shave routine involves cold water rinsing then running the dampened alum block across my face. I find it helps close my pours and stops any minor nicks I may have a little more comfortable than a styptic pencil without leaving the white residue. January 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Alum block for pre shave On the advise of your representative at the Southpark Mall in Charlotte I purchased the Alum Block. I shave with a Norelco electric razor daily and have a rather fine beard. Her advise was to put a drop or two of water on the block, rub it across my beard to make it stand up for a smoother, closer shave. I was very surprised how well it did. I am accustomed to passing over the same area two to three times. This helped get me a smoother, closer, faster shave than I have ever had! It was far less messy than the pre-shave liquids too.
