Cheap and cheerful, keep a styptic pencil in your bathroom or travel wash bag just incase you cut yurself.
Keep it dry and out of water and it should last a good long time.

HOW TO USE
Apply immediately to any small nicks and cuts and this magic pencil will stop the bleeding - no more wet toilet paper sticking to your face!
Very effective at staunching bleeding from shaving nicks and even bigger cuts. It does leave a white deposit which takes a while to remove with cold water.
Stops bleeding in seconds. tiny but I guess it will be long lasting.
Stops bleeding quickly without faffing around looking for bits of paper to stick on my face!!
Maybe I should just learn to shave properly.
A must have shaving item.
Probably quicker in stopping the bleeding than its counterpart, the shave cut gel. Not better as far as 'messiness' goes though. Limited usability - avoid water at all times.
Works as advertised. A little accessory that I unfortunately need too often. I wish I had bought this earlier. The stick seems to be a tad brittle so do not drop it.
