I was given the opportunity to try the new Schick Hydro Silk Sensitive Care Razor from BzzAgent. Now let me tell you my feelings on razors. I have tried a ton of them and most of them are great at first but then something goes wrong. They either dull too fast, have that horrible slimy strip that makes your skin all gross feeling or just don’t shave well enough. On top of it all I have super sensitive skin so most razors end up irritating my skin. Consequently I am very skeptical about trying any sort of new razor.
This is the Schick Hydro Silk Sensitive Care Razor. It comes with one razor (head included), one refill and one razor mount to hang it up in the shower. Each razor head has 5 Curve Sensing blades, a guard around it, and a Hypoallergenic Serum strip. Here is the head up close:
The one thing I noticed right off the bat was that the Hypoallergenic Serum strip didn’t have that gooey translucent look that most strips do. The guard was medium sized so it didn’t get in the way of shaving like some bulkier ones do. I was actually quite surprised how much I liked this razor. It gave me a nice clean shave even around the ankles and knees. It left my skin feeling softer than normal afterward. I didn’t experience any razor burn either which is fantastic for me since I usually do.
Next I decided to conduct a secondary test… the husband. So I took my razor head off and popped on the refill. He is super picky about razors. I secretly think it is because he is a clumsy shaver and nicks himself a lot but we won’t tell him that. So after trying it he has declared that he does in fact like this razor. He was nick free and smooth shaven. Truth be told, he ended up stealing it from me so I have to buy another.
