Review - Matchbook Styptic Pencil

Review
Product: *Matchbook Styptic Pencil*
Not a Fan!!

Have you seen them? I got mine with a monthly subscription box. They seem like a good idea. Just like a book of matches you have 20 individual sticks with a dab of styptic on the head.  You can carry them real easy in your pocket or travel case.

When I recently cut myself shaving I reached for mine from the Shaving Factory. This was an average size razor nick nothing bad. I ripped one out of the book and placed it under water for just a few seconds and applied it to the cut. The tip just crumbled off and fell into the sink. Ok let me try again, and the same thing happened. I tried this two additional times to get one cut under control. So far this is not going well. I reach for my trusty styptic pencil from Clubman and got things under control in two seconds. The matchbook concept just seems like more style then function. I’m not sure in this case the classic has been improved. To be fair I’ve only tried one brand if anyone else has a better experience then I did  please let me know. But for me ……… I’m not a fan.
