Does the job,
This review is from: Osma Alum Based Styptic Pencil (Personal Care)
This little styptic pencil is about as big as my index finger, comes in a handy perpex tube, and is therefore ideal to carry instead of a larger alum block. Had a shave with a cheap razor as soon as I got it, sure enough, had 5 little cuts around my face. Applied this pencil, WOW the burn, but the blood stops flowing instantly. Seriously handy addition to any mans wash bag!
Tip: rather than wetting the actual pencil, I found wetting my finger and then rubbing the pencil on the pad of my finger tip worked well. Just apply your fingertip to the cut. Also more hygienic as the pencil won't get bloody.
