I also only use alum if I nick myself. I tried rubbing a block over my face after shaving and before after shave balm, but with my sensitive skin, it stung and developed redness every time. My face seems to have less redness and irritation when I'm not using the alum block, but only applying it to nicks.

I could survive with just the alum block as a finisher, but I'd sure miss the scent of an aftershave or cologne. I use my block and follow that up with Proraso Liquid After Shave Cream. Something about the green tea/oat ingredients act like an astringent for me, and I could probably skip the alum, unless I've got a weeper or two. Still, I like to use something that makes me smell good. Trumper ASTOR cologne is a favorite.
