Very old school wetshaving item, but as with most traditional wetshaving gear - its superior to the newer high tech products.
Keep your face wet and rub the block over your face (It will sting a touch).
The Alum acts as a Styptic and as a balm - Closing any minor nicks and also soothing any burn and toning your face.
Let it dry then wash off (else you will have a slightly regency powdered look to your face) followed by some moisturizer.
This block is good quality and an adequate size for use on your face - should last you a good while.
