Today I am sharing my review of the Schick Hydro Silk Razor.
Have I told you before that I am a Souper? If you haven’t heard of Soup, Australia’s most influential word of mouth agency, I advise that you check it out and join!
A few months ago Back in the day, Me and My Ready Made Family had a completely failed giveaway featuring some samples of toddler formula given to me by Soup. Nevertheless, I am still an avid Souper and have been receiving samples here and there, I even did a short review on Simple Kind to Skin Facial Cleansing Wipes.
You don’t have to have a blog to become a member with Soup. It is all about sending samples out so that people can trial and review products (similar to PinchMe) so anybody can be involved! If you’re interested, you can sign up >>>here<<<
Soup sent me a Schick Hydro Silk Razor for myself, and one for a friend to try along with some coupons for the refill blades. I admit, I didn’t trial this product straight away. I’ve had a Schick Silk Effects for so long that I am just used to it. I didn’t expect anything better to be on the market. A razor is a razor, right? If I hadn’t been sent the Hydro Silk Razor, I’d probably still be hacking away at my leg hair as we speak (TMI? My apologies).
When I decided to crack open this razor, I was sceptical. I mean, I’ve heard of razors with the moisturising bars and the self soaping razors, and as far as I’m concerned, they don’t work! I had one of the first razors that had this “new” technology so you didn’t need to lather up your legs before you do the deed and it was crap. It didn’t lather the leg at all, it gave my legs a dry shave. Not very effective. Unless you slather your legs in soap before you shave, or moisturise afterwards, these things generally aren’t going to happen with a razor!
The Schick Hydro Silk Razor is a different story. I noticed, as I was shaving, the water-activated moisturising serum was really working. It left behind a gel like substance that my skin absorbed really quickly. It might not be the same for everybody, but it obviously worked for me – I didn’t even need to moisturise afterwards!
Did I mention that the Schick Hydro Silk Razor has FIVE blades! Yep, five. And they are “curve sensing” according to Schick. Honestly, I’m not sure what that is supposed to mean, but they do have skin guards to protect you from nicks (apart from that time I hacked away at my ankle because I was used to my old dull razor and was reckless with my 5 blades… ouch!). I used to use men’s razors because they tend to give a closer shave but the Schick Hydro Silk Razor trumped all the men’s razors I’ve ever had and didn’t leave my legs with a nasty rash.
At the end of my review for Soup, I gave the razor a 5 out of 5. I’m no razor expert, but I am really happy with the results and the only thing I could complain about is mine didn’t come with one of those holders that suction cups to your shower wall. That’s it.
Next time you’re in the market for a new razor you should definitely give this one a whirl!
Thanks for stopping by,
