One of our ushers came to a church service with a piece of toilet paper on his face. I knew what happened even before I asked him about it. He cut himself shaving and it wouldn’t stop. Every time he took the paper off, it would start bleeding again.

I’m not criticizing. It has happened to us all. We spent the next few minutes exchanging stories of our similar embarrassing moments.

I told him of an item that would keep him from ever having to face this stressful situation again.

It’s called a Styptic Pencil.

It is a simple item that IMMEDIATELY stops bleeding from shaving cuts. It burns for a second, but it is worth the momentary pain. It is a lifesaver.

Why write about this cheap item?

I cut myself this morning shaving. I don’t do it often, but I was in a hurry today so I nicked my face. I could barely see the cut, but the blood started flowing. 🙁 I took out my styptic pencil and stopped the bleeding immediately. I was thankful to have this simple tool.

As I thanked the Lord for a quick solution to the problem, I thought back to a situation a few years ago. I was out of town getting ready for an important meeting. As I was shaving in the hotel, I cut myself. I looked for my Styptic Pencil in my travel bag, but it was not there. Oh no!

The only thing I could do was try to stop the bleeding by pressure. I held a tissue to the minuscule cut thinking that it would clot quickly. It didn’t. After several minutes, I had to keep getting ready so I did what we all do – I put a small piece of tissue paper on the cut to stop it. I tried to take the tissue paper off a few times, but the microscopic cut started to bleed again.

I had to leave the embarrassing white tissue stuck to my face until I arrived in the parking lot. Thankfully, I remembered to take it off before I walked into a meeting with sharp-dressed business executives.

All of that drama would have been avoided if I just had my Styptic Pencil.

I was so thankful for the quick remedy this morning that I thought I would share this pro tip. You never have to face the panic or awkwardness of a shaving cut that won’t stop bleeding again.

Pick up a Styptic Pencil this week. I recommend the 3-pack. You won’t be sorry. Keep one anywhere you shave. Put one in your travel bag and leave it there so you never forget it.

You can get one HERE or at your local department store.
