What is BLOCMEN©?

BLOCMEN© is a pre shave powder stick proven for decades. It is applied before dry shaving and provides for a gentle and skin-caring shave. BLOCMEN© contains talc which absorbs sweat and grease. The powder helps to straighten up the beard hair and enables a gentle gliding of the electric shaver with its water-binding properties. BLOCMEN© provides for a especially thorough shave. Redness or skin irritation does not occur. After shaving, the skin feels smooth and soft.

When is it applied?

BLOCMEN© is applied onto the skin before the dry shave. If the first powder layer is carried off, the powder supply is regulated by simply pushing onto the bottom of the applicator. After the use remaining powder can easily be removed with or without water. BLOCMEN© Original is ideally suited for the use after taking a shower when the hair is softened.

  • Apply onto the skin before the dry shave and spread evenly
  • Shave and clean the face afterwards
  • Clean the shaving head as usual
