I was watching one of GeoFatboys videos on YouTube, and he mentioned something called the Proraso nick sealer. I didn't know Proraso made something like that. I bought one from his website www.shavenation.com, which by the way seems to be the only place that sells it. It's a small tube that looks like the smaller version of the Proraso shave cream, but it ain't shave cream I used it for the first time today, and boy, this stuff really works! I nicked myself, so I took out the nick sealer. I squeezed a very tiny bit onto my finger, almost nothing at all. I applied it to my nick, and instantly it stopped and it didn't bleed again! This stuff is great. It doesn't leave a white residue like the styptic pencil does, and it works faster than the styptic pencil. Considering I hardly ever nick myself, and I use such a tiny amount when I do, this one tube will last me for a very long time. I think this is Proraso's most underrated product. You must give this a try.
