    i would recomend the bar or a deo shaped one. you use it with water but dont run it under water rhater just dipp it and when your done make sure its dry again and it will serve you for a long time.

    If you go through a bar of Alum in your life, I salute you. It is the Atoma Plate of aftershave.

    They are basically rocks that will soothe your skin, and help stop nicks from burning and bleeding. You'll know where the nicks are, too, even if they aren't deep enough to bleed.

    There seems to be a lot of brands out there. Is one better than the other? They're just all blocks of potassium aluminum sulfate right? Any suggestions for a specific brand?

    Anyone got a recomendation for a pre-shave treatment? Such as a pre-shave oil of some sort?

    I've never used anything of the sort, but have heard about them here and there. I'm thinking of trying something as I keep getting nciks around the outer lower corners of my face between my chin and lower lips...
