We're very proud of our After Balm - a soothing finish to every shave
I had an alum block years ago and had forgotten its virtues. I have tried it as a pre-shave for a Panasonic shaver and as an aftershave rub post wet-shave. It is effective in both modes. Recommended.
I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of this alum block. The first thing I noticed was that it was so smooth. Definitely a nicer feel on my face than my previous alum block, that died an early death when I dropped it and it shattered. It now gets used as an antiperspirant :) Alum should be a part of every post-shave routine. This is a quality block at a good price.
