I've just taken delivery of an alum block and used it this morning for the first time.
I finished my shave then rinsed with cold water then ran the block under the cold tap and gently rubbed all over my face and chin. It stung a little but my face is still quite tight and sore now (6 hours on).
Couple of questions:
How long do you rub the block on your face for and once on do you just leave it to dry before putting on aftershave balm (or Trumpers skin food in my case) or do you rinse with cold water again to get the alum off then balm?
Thanks in advance.
