    :

    Similar experience to Jay — my bar actually arrived with one end crushed, still in its shrink-wrap. After opening it and gently using it once or twice, the alum inside the block on the broken end started dissolving and hollowing itself out — as a result the outer ‘crust’ of solid alum then weakened and broke off. I’m left with about 2/3 of and alum bar and I’m trying to keep it that way. Maybe defective, maybe handled too roughly in transit. Not sure, but my Razorock bar never did that, until someone knocked it off the counter and it shattered.

    Started falling apart from one end after the first use. I dry it and set it on it’s side on a dry countertop. After two more shaves the alum bar is hollowing itself out and breaking apart badly. I think I just got a bad bar, but I contacted Maggard and they said this is absolutely normal. After reading these other reviews it doesn’t seem like my block is anything close to normal. I’ve even seen a photo of another shavers Maggard Alum block that he has had for 4 years that has less wear and tear on it than mine did after only a single use.
    So based on the quality of the block I reviecied, I could absolutely NOT recommend this purchase.

    cool alum block in a nice plastic case at a great price. a must for anyone with sensitive skin in the neck area. avoid using aftershaves with alcohol in them and just use this followed by a non- alcohol aftershave or moisturizer. 🙂

    Where has this been all my life? Nicks and cuts just go away. Like the others said, I just wet it down, rub it all over my wet, shaved face and then after a few moments rinse it off. It really does a great job and you can’t go wrong for the price!

    I’m glad I started using this. It does give good feedback. For me it gives a nicer feel after the head shave. I follow up with witch hazel and then balm. Haven’t had any of the small irritation bumps I was occasionally getting since I added this to the mix.

    Plenty of other choices of alum out there but this deal can’t be beat. Mine arrived damage free and well packaged. It gives good feedback of places you may need to improve your technique and calms everything down. Works well to shore up nicks and weeps. Definitely a must have, I would recommend this and a Parker 24/26 C as a starting point to any new wet shavers.

    Yes, 5 stars. It just works. Nothing fancy about alum. It’s the fix for nicks and weeps. Very noticeable decrease in bumps and such. Just cold rinse, gently rub the block on shaved areas, let it work for a minute, then cold rinse followed by aftershave or balm of your choice. Oh, and it not only is cheap, this small block should last a long, long time.

    I am a believer in the Alum Block. Even well into mid 30’s, acne would still appear. I tried alum to shore up nicks and generally soothe the face, but the side benefit has been a much clearer complexion. Enjoying better shaves, clear of infected obstacles… and a better feel after the shave thanks to the alum block. It was the most economical and effective solution to a very menacing problem….if only I knew about this when I was much younger.

    What can I say other than this blocks works well and is easy to use. It definitely gives you nice feedback regarding any irritation. The plastic case is very convenient for storage. I use the alum block after a cold rinse, then I do another cold rinse after 30 seconds.

    Been using mines since July and I haven’t mage any significant progress toward wearing it away. I love it. Let’s me knot how my shaves are going, stops any cuts from bleeding and kills bump causing bacteria.
