A styptic alum block that relieves the bleeding from small cuts and is easier to use on large areas than an an alum pencil. The block is therefore also suitable to mitigate razorburns; Moisten the block lightley and apply gently on the newly shaved, clean face. Finish off with cool water to close the pores.
Usage: Apply a small amount of water to the styptic block and apply the on to the affected area. The aluminium-potassium sulphate in the styptic pencil has a cauterizing effect on the skin and therefore it can sting a little bit when it comes in contact with the cut. This is however perfectly normal. Clean the part of the block that you have used with water after use – do NOT rinse the whole block under running water.
