As both an astringent and antiseptic, the Alum Block comes to the rescue if you ever suffer from shaving nicks or gash. Fits easily into a travel bag. Cools and refreshes the skin after shaving. Soothes shaving irritations.
An Alum Block is an essential for any man’s grooming kit. It can be used as an astringent to sooth irritation, a coagulant to take care of any razor related injuries.

How to select Shaving Accessories?
One of the recommended skin care products is a brush from Razor Club , a shaving accessory specialty store . Using 100% natural hole bear hair, handle part and olive tree native to the Tuscany region of Italy, excellent comfort! Men’s skin with lots of lipids … Using a brush not only provides a cleansing effect and exhilaration, but also a brush that massages the surface of the skin for a clear, clear face! In addition, the men’s grooming set of “Razor Club” is an excellent one introduced in many magazines! Choppi is expensive, but very high quality.
It is important to know your skin type before choosing a care product after cleansing your face. The standard is the sensation of skin after facial cleansing. In the case of oily skin, there is almost no refreshing after washing the face, but it may come out after about 30 minutes. Dry skin does not feel smooth after more than one hour, and the skin is dry and rough. For mixed skin, only the T zone is shiny and the rest is dry. For normal skin, after washing your face, you can get a refreshing feeling in about 30 to 40 minutes even if you are firm.
Diagnose your skin quality and use this as a guide to select skin care products. For people with oily skin, use acidic, tightening type lotion and non-oil serum. For people with dry skin, use a weakly acidic lotion in the summer, a weakly alkaline lotion in the fall and winter, and a highly moisturizing cream or serum containing collagen, ceramide , amino acids, etc.
TO CHOOSING ESSENTIAL ACCESSORIES
FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO REDISCOVER HOW TO SHAVE THEIR BEARDS ACCORDING TO THE TRADITIONAL METHOD
Although it is less and less common, the classic shaving ritual is not extinct: in the century of the electric razor, disposable razors and new followers of the long and thick beard, there is still room for that niche of men who prefer the classic shaving, the one practiced by our grandparents, with traditional razor and all the appropriate beard accessories.
The Gentleman who opts for traditional shaving not only has the perfect shave at heart, but takes time to take care of himself, performing an ancient ritual, which requires slow and cadenced actions and which gives daily shaving execution a truly unique charm.
The ritual of the classic shaving, however, does not end with the soaping, shaving and rinsing and control operations: the art of aspiring for a perfect shave requires a careful selection of accessories dedicated to it.
In fact, the classic shave guarantees a quality shave, minimizing the risk of irritation, provided that correct and quality tools are used.
- Beard accessories: the basic shaving set
- Traditional or safety razor
- Shaving brushes
- Soaps and shaving creams
- Set aside the commercial can of shaving foam: the classic shaving requires an equally classic soaping.
What do you need for a classic shave of shaving accessories?
No matter whether it is a small cosmetic mirror or the typical “Alibert” in the bathroom. A mirror is mandatory, because who wants to shave in blind flight? Always ensure adequate lighting.
Choose between a razor, safety razor or wet razor.
Razor: If you want toremove the whiskerswith a razor like in grandpa’s times, you need a pull-off strap and possibly blade oil. The pull belt straightens the burr on the knife’s edge and the blade oil protects the knife blade against corrosion.
Safety razor: Thesafety razor also comes from grandpa’s time and only needs one razor blade, which can be changed if necessary.
Wet razor : The wet razor or system razor is the “modern” successor to the safety razor. Like its predecessor, it also comes with interchangeable razor blades.
With the right shaving soap in combination with the right shaving brush made of badger hair, you only get the required fine and creamy shaving foam. The foam is usually mixed in a shaving bowl.
In order to keep everything optically appealing and professional, there are still practical storage systems.
