Caught myself a treat on the chin an hour ago, only just stopped bleeding.
Anyone got any tips or product recommendations to help with this? I've got a styptic pencil but it just didn't cut it (pardon the pun) with this one.
I started with the proraso gel which works well enough though what with the smearing method of application you end up with a huge white patch until you rub it off. Recently I bought a few books of styptic matches which allow a more precise application and leave the same chalky residue, these seem to work just as well.
I haven't tried an septic pencil.
Had a couple of weepers recently. I wet the block with cold water then apply to the effected area, wait a bit then rinse with cold water. That did the trick. Rinse the block after with cold water and dry.
I am currently using the Edwin Jagger block but there are plenty of others to choose from.
Alum block is my go to. On holiday I use styptic matches as they are more convenient.
Cold water does bugger all for me, I can only seeing it working for only the smallest of cuts which would clot on their own after a few minutes.
Next time you are shopping online throw a styptic pencil or alum block in the basket. Not only will it be useful for cuts in general (I use mine for any cut) but it will probably put you into the order amount needed for free postage.
