Merkur Solingen Alum Block (Bloc Osma), 75g
- Product Review (submitted on 11 December 2013):
I had watched a number of YouTube videos which showed how this product is useful for treating small nicks and cuts. That is an understatement to say the least.
This product is the most important part of my post shave routine. When you've shaved correctly, it applies with a slight tingle. When you've pressed too hard and irritated the skin, this block may as well be made of fire. It's a really brutish but incredibly effective way of inspecting the quality of your shave. But perhaps most importantly, applying this block seals the skin after its blade encounter. For me, it has eliminated ingrown hairs, pimples and razor bumps to the extent that I can now shave everyday if I want, compared to no more than once every three/four days back in my Mach III days.
It's uncanny how useful this product is, particularly if you have sensitive skin and are prone to nasties like ingrown hairs and razor bumps.
