  • 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".

Block alum

I have used this product after every shave for more than twenty years. This is the first time to purchase it from WCS. I think that I will purchase again. This is a great place for shave supplies.

Smooth

If you experience a slightly rough shave, the WCS Alum Bar will help relieve the unpleasant sting. Definitely worth the nominal cost.

Permanent addition to my shaving routine.

Product has been beneficial to my shaving routine. Using it doesn't exactly tickle if you have any cuts or razer burn, but it seems to shorting healing time and visibility of cuts. Will definitely buy again.
