In the unlucky event of nicking yourself at the same time as shaving, use the French made Bloc D\’ Alun (calme le feu du rasoir) Alum Block with its vessel constricting astringent properties will curb any minor bleed. Used for hundreds of years to calm cut and damaged skin and as an underarm natural deodorant and anti perspirant. The Alum block also has antiseptic properties that no longer best cool and refresh the surface after shaving, but additionally act as a balm. Merely wet the block, apply to stand, after which gently dab dry with a towel.
Does this come with a plastic storage case like other brands?
No, he does not do it. I just use the box and it has been well maintained. If you want a plastic case, you can look at the razorocks alum stick
Afer shaving do you put moisturizer before or after applying alum?
I apply the alum first. I wet it with cold water, rub it gently all over my freshly shaved face, and wait about 30 seconds before splashing cold water on my face. I will pat myself dry and then apply the aftershave.
Can someone please provide a link to a plastic box that will fit this block? I got the alum block, but I am now looking for a container
The block dries easily. I just dry it when I'm done using it and put it back in the original box for next time.
Do I need to rinse this off my face after applying?
No. I apply the block and then use aftershave lotion. No need to rinse.
Where is this sourced?
This product is made in France.
Do I need to rinse this off after applying?
No, and it's not something you can really "rinse off". It simply tightens the skin and leaves no residue. I always rinse afterwards, but sometimes I skip it.
I have lots of hair under the facial skin which leaves a beard shadow n there's ingrown hair and pigmentation. Does it do the same job as Tend Skin???
No it's definitely not just salt
Is this aluminum?
Unsafe. It may contain aluminum as an ingredient, but it is not a block of aluminum. It does a great job of stopping nicks and cuts after shaving.
Is this aluminum ammonium sulfate or is this potassium alum?
Potassium alum. It is a cut block of natural Alum.
