- Alum bar from West Coast Shaving
- Astringent and coagulant
- Packaged in a WCS branded plastic container
You've got the razor; you've found the brush, you've loaded your favorite blade, and lathered the perfect soap. Your near perfect shave is almost in the books, and then. . . a little nick, a little burn. Even when everything is going well, your nirvana shave can be brought back to earth quickly when your close shave gets too close. Don't worry! West Coast Shaving has you covered with an alum block.
Your traditional shave needs a traditional life hack. A block of hydrated potassium aluminum sulfate is just what you need after your shave as an astringent and blood coagulant. After your morning routine and cold water rinse, wet the bar and rub it over all parts of your face that you just groomed. It might sting a bit, but it will quickly produce a soothing quality and wonderful post-shave face feel.
PRO-TIP: Some suggest popping this baby in the freezer before you start your shaving routine so the bar is ice cold when you finish your groom. "Using an ice cold alum bar on your face is the best part of the shave".
