Details

Edwin Jagger make some of the world's finest wet shaving products in Sheffield, a city renowned for its rich industrial industry. The Edwin Jagger Alum Block is a 54g natural, paraben-free product that has a styptic effect, closing the pores and caring for skin.

Alum is the original antiseptic aftershave made with natural potassium alum. It is a type of chemical compound that has been used in alchemy for hundreds of years due to its medicinal healing qualities, giving it the ability to reduce redness and razor burn.

 It can also encourage faster healing of any cuts caused by wet shaving by constricting blood vessels and tightening pores.

Traces of alum can be found in some shaving soaps and creams in order to elevate comfort during shaving but applying a pure alum block to skin post-shave will offer the highest level of relief.

For best results, begin by washing away any remaining shaving soap on your face. Moisten the block with cold water to assist with closing pores, then rub the block on to the area requiring post-shave comfort (external use only). When applied properly, the block should simply glide over the skin with ease and leave it feeling soft and smooth.

It’s likely the user will feel a slight tingling sensation during use. This is simply due to the astringent qualities and is to be expected.

After use, rinse the alum block and pat it dry. Store back in the plastic case provided in order to keep it dry or use an alternative dry storage area.

Alum blocks are soluble in water, so the block will eventually wear out but is designed to be long lasting. Alum blocks that are thoroughly dried after use and stored away correctly will have a longer lifespan.

The Edwin Jagger Styptic Pencil works in a very similar manner and is ideal for use on the go.

The Edwin Jagger Alum Block is one of the best value alum products on the market, so it a great choice for those looking to try it out for the first time.

Casi perfecto
Excelente artículo como post afeitado. Como recomendación: no dejar caer, o de lo contrario será el fin de esta maravilla (lo digo por experiencia). Con cuidado puede durar mucho.

I'm a newcomer to DE shaving so a few nicks are inevitable. This alum block works brilliantly at stopping any bleeding. Very useful.

This block will outlast you and will stop small nicks from bleeding. Just wet the block on the corner and rub on the cut.
Great Value, but I prefer the Proraso tube. I just found the gel to be a bit easier to use and less agressive on my skin

A great value alum block
I must confess I am no expert on alum blocks (in terms of how they may vary/differ from brand to brand). However, this one from Edwin Jagger is typically considerably cheaper than many others on the market - yet does exactly what it is intended to do. Knicks and cuts from shaving are hard to avoid - so I find having one of these on-hand very reassuring!
