Let's be real for a minute. When you are shaving with a safety razor or a straight razor, or even a cartridge, we all cut ourselves from time to time. It's okay - it doesn't make you any less of a man. When it happens though, it is best to be prepared to take care of the nicks right away. Styptic pencils are perfect for large nicks and cuts to stop the bleeding quickly, whereas alum blocks are great for smaller nicks and razor burn. We would highly suggest adding one or both of these products to your cart. At some point you will be glad you did!

Nick Relief Reviews
High quality alum. Smooth, no rough edges and it doesn't fall apart. Perfect after a straight razor shave, or any shave for that matter.
It's alum, It works
WCS Basics Alum Aftershave Bar "It's hard to go wrong with an Alum block. I usually use the OSMA brand but these were free with a certain purchase level and came with a plastic case which OSMA does not. I've still not received an answer as to whether or not they are a solid block or compressed fragments, BUT, the block is smooth and works well. I have 3 of them and have given 2 away to friends. All three of us have been pleased so far with their effectiveness as well as their durability.

An Alum block is not something you need too often unless you drop it. (it will shatter) You let it remain wet. (it dissolves) so leave the plastic box open after drying the wet side off on tissue or your flank.. It crumbles, cheaper blocks may start to crumble especially on the ends where your fingers hold it.

This block has held up fine for the 3 of us for several months. It is a standard part of my routine. Wipe of the extra soap with a Cottonelle wet-wipe, Cold water rinse, alum block rub on my wet face, let it sit until I clean my brush, bowl and razor, then 2nd cold rinse and apply after shave. As mentioned above, I only close the plastic case when I'm traveling so as to always let the block completely dry. Also NEVER let the block rest on iron or steel the reaction is corrosive.

Works like a charm
Proraso Styptic Gel, 10ml "One nick, put a little on, no blood. Perfect.
Alum block
WCS Basics Alum Aftershave Bar "During our deployment to the Republic of Georgia I've turned most of the Marines on to WCS. Everyone is extremely happy with all of the products and the timely manner in which it has shipped and arrived. My first time using alum was here and I'll for sure continue using it. We all have agreed that the block is the way to go.
Love this alum block
WCS Basics Alum Aftershave Bar "Great alum block with a storage case. It does a great job providing instant feedback of any irritation from your shave. Be careful as it can slip out of your hand while wet. I did drop mine but thankfully only chipped a corner. It should last for years if taken care of.
It works
WCS Basics Alum Stick "I don't really have anything to compare it to as this is the first time I've used alum but I get that familiar sting along with zero irritation afterwards. So in that case I have to believe it's working. On top of that it seems as it'll last me a life time so long as I don't drop it. I just wish there was a tiny hole or something in the cap so it'll be able to vent moisture after I use it. All in all a great buy.
Great Alum Block
Bloc Osma Alum Block "I have tried a couple alum blocks. First was a cheaper one that broke into pieces rather easily. The Osma block has stayed in one piece. Even after dropping a couple times, only small pieces chipped off. What I love about a good alum block is the instant feedback on the irritation suffered during a shave. If it burns a lot, it wasn't such a smooth shave. Plus, the block helps with minor cuts. I rarely need anything more than an alum block to stop any bleeding. This is a great alum block!
