I use the alum block to see how much my shave irritated my face after every shave. The alum block doesn’t seem to help with weepers which are far and few between. What are your thoughts on the alum block?
I cut out the alum and stuck with witch hazel for the post and haven't needed a balm since. I can't say I miss it, and can say my face feels calmer without it. YMMV.This is a weird one for me. I don’t need an alum block to tell me I did a subpar job. It doesn’t help much when you mess up. I do feel the burn as punishment and so maybe that’s an incentive to get it better next time. My skin does tighten up but makes me have to put something on my face to counter the tightness so, ya. A bit confusing. Why do I need an alum block?
