I am a BzzAgent and as one we are assigned campaigns where we get to try and sample products for free. Recently I joined a campaign for the new Schick Hydro Silk Razor. I received the product in the mail a couple of weeks ago and I have to admit I was a little skeptical.
I was sent what is called the starter kit. In it is the razor handle, two cartridges and a suction hanger to keep your razor up and out of reach. The first thing I immediately loved was the hanger it came with. I have a one year old and she just loves to act like mommy...so being able to hang my razor up out of her reach is a big plus in my book. The next thing...the long and shapely, almost sexy contour of the handle. It fits well in the palm of your hand, not to short, and not too long.
The actual cartridge has five blades! for a closer shave, which is fantastic. Normally I have to buy a men's razor to get more than three! On the package it explains that the cartridge has a hydrating water activated serum that leaves your skin feeling smooth, which is great, until its on your skin. This was the only thing I did not like about the razor. The serum was more like a
Even though I fought the goo...after I was finished shaving my legs were oh so smooth and sexy!
The honey most definitely appreciated the smoothness.
The shave lasted 4 days before I started to feel stubble again...which is amazing. Normally I have to shave everyday.
The razor normally runs about $10 in most department stores, which is a wonderful price. The cartridges run about $15 for a 4 pack, which I think is reasonable considering I spend at least $20 a month on disposables.
This is definitely a razor I can see myself using permanently. Even if it feels a little gooey!
I have not been paid by BzzAgent, or the Schick Hydro Silk Razor manufacturers to write this review. This is 100% how I feel about the razor! You should try it!
