The day before Valentine’s Day I wrote this post to remind you guys to shave your legs for Valentine’s Day. Of course I was just goofing around, the purpose of that post was to let you know that I was trying out Schick’s most awarded razor: the Hydro Silk Razor and that I would be posting my review soon.
So here it is, I’ve been using this razor for two weeks now (I got it for free) and I can’t wait to tell you guys what I think (hint: I love it)!
Schick Hydro Silk hydrates skin like no other razor can. This uniquely designed razor goes beyond an incredibly close shave to actually care for your skin. With Water-Activated Moisturizing Serum & 5 Curve-Sensing blades with skin guards to help protect skin from irritation, the Hydro Silk razor leaves skin feeling silky smooth! And it’s preferred over the leading 5 blade razor.
This is a GREAT razor! It gives me very close shave and left my skin feeling smooth, smoother than it has with pretty much any other razor I’ve tried. The razor that I was using before was the Schick Quattro for Women TrimStyle (check out my review on it here) and before that I used Venus Embrace. This one beats both of them with ease! For me, it does everything it claims to do:
Includes Water-Activated Moisturizing Serum to hydrate your skin for up to two hours after shaving. This serum is infused with marine extracts and shea butter, which I can tell. I don’t have to rush and put on body lotion after I step out the shower. I actually do that the next day now (I usually shower in the evenings).
Includes 5 Curve-Sensing blades with Skin Guards help reduce irritation. I haven’t experienced any irritation. Also, because it has 5 blades, it only takes me a few minutes to shave my legs and underarms. This is awesome, since I had Mason my showers have to be short and sweet…
Has an ergonomic, soft touch handle with rubber grips. It feels very light in my hand, but I still have ‘control’ while shaving.
Has compact oval cartridges that fit the contours of a woman’s body. Because the cartridge is oval, it gave me a very close shave. Even around hard-to-reach places like my ankles and armpits.
So yeah, if you’re looking for a new razor, check out this one!
Where to buy?
Schick Hydro Silk razors are stocked at the drugstores, grocery stores and mass retailers. The Starter Kit sells for $9.49 and the 4-packs of refill cartridges retail for around $15.11. Great buy, if you ask me!
