Aftershave / Blood Clotter

Prevents bleeding after shaving
  [vote for,

How many times have you cut yourself shaving then had to stick bits of paper over the wound to stop the bleeding? Well with an aftershave combined with a blood clotting agent, simply apply and, voila! the bleeding stops. Works for men and women, and on all parts of the body.

Don't have the razor, but have the shaving mug, brush and soaps... [StarChaser, Aug 27 2000, last modified Oct 04 2004]

       I have very wimpy skin, and I don't shave unless I have too - I made the mistake of using aftershave once in my younger years. What I need is an aftershave with a coagulent and a local anesthetic. The Gillette Mach 3 razor actually gives me a close shave without undue bloodshed, but I'm so out of the habit of shaving, that it seldom gets used - nice to know it's there though.

       Never understood why there isn't an easy to use depilatory for faces, like Neet or Nair for women's legs.
StarChaser, Aug 28 2000

       I can't understand why in this modern day and age we still need to drag sharpened metal across our faces to get rid of hair, or burn it off with deadly chemicals. Surely there is an easier way. :)

       Unfortunately the whole point of shaving is to impress people, and the eventual look of being clean-shaven is less important than that you put a decent amount of effort into it. If a quick cheap safe and easy method of shaving ever became available, being clean-shaven would become less important - it would quickly enough be more fashionable to have some carefully-trimmed beard which proved that you had put the effort in. Just be happy that you can at present get away with either being completely clean-shaven, or having a full beard.

       Maybe nappy cloths with the same stuff that styptic sticks are made out of... 'course styptic sticks BURN!

       Babyfaces or leatherfaces: Shower-while bath is still steamy run hot water in sink-keep face moist-use hot water throughout. Apply Edge gel-sensitive skin formula, use your favorite razor. Aaaah-Close comfortable shave. Repeat as necessary. The first time a person uses aftershave is no fun as it is virgin territory and face should be somewhat warm and moist. The creme de la shaving creme of shaves is done in the shower with anti-fog mirror. Take your Sweet friggin' time as Shaving is a Sacred Ritual of Manhood.

       definite member of the shave-in-the-shower-club. and while i do go for the mach3, when you actually do cut yourself with this thing (and you know you will) you get 3 matching cuts instead of just one. real pain in the arse that.
FrancoCoylioni, Oct 04 2000

       Mach 3 is supposed to save you going over the same area 2 or 3 times, it's even a selling point but it has 3 blades so aren't you doing that anyway? We have hair on our faces for a reason so why get rid of it, how many gorillas do you see sporting a goatee??

       Or Walruses, for that matter?
thumbwax, Oct 04 2000

       Actually shaving isn't that much of a problem for me, as I have a beard, using the shaver merely to keep things neat on my neck and on the cheeks (and I use mach 3 and think it's good).   

       What prompted this was my wife, who persists in the womanly practise of shaving her legs in the shower. I was getting tired of trying to wash blood off the towels (see my profile as to why I do this).   

       Maybe a laser based depilatory treatment might be the answer.
Alcin, Oct 05 2000

       Has anyone tried using a cut throat razor?   

       Very cleat shave bat a missing chin.   

       You could always try using fire to remove the offending hairs, lots of fire so that it cauterizes the entire face, only thing is you will look like the understudy for the lead role in the phantom of the opera. Still, no more shaving
Monkeyboy, Oct 05 2000

       I would love to try a real razor. The quality ones are a little too pricey for me to just see if it is to my liking. If it were, I'd go all out with the mug and brush and make it a full blown event to shave. May put a little extra swagger in the step.
thumbwax, Oct 05 2000

       I shave to get that rugged stubbily look. I find that it really turns most chicks on. When you're 15 it is a big plus to look 23. Helps you get into movies and other things that aren't allowed to people my age. Gets me older women too.

thumbwax, Oct 07 2000

       Can get the mug and soap and brush from the Vermont Country Store...they have the old style 'single razorblade with two edge' type razors, too, but not the slasher sort...
StarChaser, Oct 07 2000

       older women= 18-25
cheapthrill, Oct 07 2000

       Isn't that reverse statutory rape?
thumbwax, Oct 07 2000

       [starchaser] I used to use a wilkinson sword classic double-edged razor (the single-blade kind you mentioned). don't do it to yourself. there's loads of reasons to live. and it doesn't make you feel like more of a man. more of a crash-victm maybe.
FrancoCoylioni, Oct 09 2000

       <Laughs> I won't. I don't need a razor.
StarChaser, Oct 09 2000

       If you want to look clean-shaven but hate shaving, consider a facial depilatory marketed towards women with excess facial hair. OR invest in a fantastic razor, and talk to your doctor about Vaniqa. It's a new, pricey cream that slows facial hair growth. Worth a try if shaving makes you absolutely miserable...
djanaba, Apr 11 2001

       ...or you could go down to your favourite esthetician, let them drug you up for a week, and have them perform elctrolysis all over your face!   

       i haven't worked up the guts to try this, yet.
mihali, Apr 11 2001

       I think this might qualify as baked (sorry). They already make a stick that you can apply to cuts to stop them from bleeding (I think it's called a styptic pen, and it might be made of alum).
Size_Mick, Nov 04 2003

       I've always wondered, can you wax beard whiskers or are they too bristly?   

       (see link for people who do not EVER nick themselves shaving)
squeak, Nov 04 2003

       "Shaving is a Sacred Ritual of Manhood." So have I desecrated it by shaving with an electric razor in under three seconds, for the first time and consistently since?   

       "When you're 15 it is a big plus to look 23. " No shit. This also applies at 17. To get that rugged stubbly look I have to wait a about two weeks. And then I get it on my upper lip and chin. That ain't stubble, it's fuzz. Is there a cream version of Rogaine for my chin? Bedamned.
Eugene, Nov 04 2003

       Size_Mick, this idea is quite different. The author clearly wants an *after-shave* that will stop bleeding. I don't know if you've ever been complimented for smelling like a styptic pen, but I sure haven't.
Overpanic, Nov 04 2003

       Overpanic - don't overpanic. You can still use aftershave after you use the styptic.
