      COMMENTS:

      Stings a bit when I use it after a shave but its tolerable...It stops the bleeding fast on any nicks I might receive...After the slight stinging subsides I apply my after shave and it feels great...A must have for any shave kit.

      I have used this for a couple weeks now and I am still not sure if it does anything. It seems like it reduce bleeding but its not magical and still takes a couple of applications. It does burn like heck though.

      COMMENTS:

      I have just enough hair on my head to be an agravaltion and the price of a hair cut is the same as for a full head. Soap and razors are cheaper so I have maintained the Kojak look pretty much back to the day people knew what that meant. Now that gives me a lot more skin surface area to shave. None of it is flat and half of it is hidden from view. On ocassion, in a rush I will get a tiny nick which will turn into a torrent. This of course happens when you jahve the least amount of time to tend to it. Here's the choices: Toilet paper patch which you will forget and your cloeset friends at work won't mention or this little alum block. No need being the office entertainment, is there?

        the actual size is small but you really don't need anything bigger just wet your face and rub the block over it. for small nicks just wet the stone and rub it over the cut.

        Has merits

        • Clear Alt To Styptic Pen

        Cons

          Best Uses

            COMMENTS:

            This product does not work as well as a styptic pencil to stop bleeding, but I would recommend it because it doesn't leave the powdery white residue like styptic pencils. This is a small block at a big price, but it appears it will last much longer than the average styptic pencil which are much cheaper. I shave with an electric razor, so I don't suffer any razor nicks. I use this for all the other nicks and minor cuts I get on my hands and face from working in the garden.
