I was sent the Schick Hydro Silk razor to try through a campaign on BzzAgent.com. I was interested to see how it worked compared to the disposables I use on a regular basis. Choosing a razor is a big deal for me because I shave every single day. I cannot and will not go a day sporting annoying stubble; It's very uncomfortable and irritating!
It has been awhile since I've used a razor with replaceable cartridges. In fact, I can't actually remember the last time I had a razor like that. Disposables have been my go-to because they're inexpensive and easy.
The Schick Hydro Silk includes:
- Water-activated Moisturizing Serum for hydration up to 2 hours after shaving
- 5 Curve-sensing blades with skin guards to reduce irritation
- Compact oval cartridges that fit contours of the body
- Soft touch handle
- Comes with 2 cartidges and a shower mount
When I used it on my legs for the first time, I was pleasantly surprised that it took less swipes across my skin to do the job and I didn't get any tiny cuts. I could work quickly with this razor and my legs were smooth in half the time it normally took. I didn't use shaving cream (I never do) andit wasn't needed. My legs felt slick and smooth - definitely not dry or irritated. It even worked well (and comfortably) in the bikini zone as well. I may just ditch the disposables and keep this razor around from now on!
