Nicks & Match

Filed under the not-new-but-new-to-us folder, this tiny matchbook of mini styptic pens from French-based skin care company Hommage. Alum, a natural mineral that's the main ingredient, works to stop bleeding and promote healing—making them perfect for shaving nicks or popped pimples.  And the handy matchstick shape means they're easy to use. Tender men be warned: these sting, but they work.

$50 for a pack of five, at Maintenance for Men.

  • FYI: Hommage products are stocked at such high-end hotels as the Mandarin Oriental in Hong Kong and the Sanderson Hotel in London.
