Schick Hydro Silk Sensitive Care Razor Review

Wednesday, February 19, 2014

DISCLOSURE:  I received a free product from BzzAgent to facilitate this review.  My opinions are my own.

I have sensitive skin.  My legs are prone to ingrown hairs and razor bumps, so I tend to use razors with only three blades.  When I was offered the chance to try the Schick Hydro Silk Sensitive Care razor, I wasn't aware that it had five blades!  So, when it arrived, I was very hesitant to even use it and regretted even accepting the campaign from BzzAgent.  I've tried razors with four and even five blades in the past and have always had problems with them.  My legs would end up irritated and I'd have to not shave for several days to calm them down.

The kit from BzzAgent, though, was nice.  It included a full size razor with refills, coupons to hand out to friends and a coupon for a free can of Skintimate Shave Gel.

After a week of the razor just sitting on my dresser, I decided to go ahead and give it a try.  Inside the package was the razor, a cover for the razor and 2 extra refills.

The Schick Hydro Silk Sensitive Care was designed to hydrate and protect sensitive skin against irritation.  It includes a hypoallergenic moisturizing serum infused with shea butter.  There are skin guards on each blade to also help protect against irritation.  The blades are designed to sense your curves and give incredible closeness.

I liked the handle of the razor and found it easy to hold.  The razor head was a little larger than what I was used to using.  So, I found it hard to maneuver around my knees and found that there would always be spots that I missed shaving around my knees.  I did like the moisturizing serum and did feel that my legs did not feel as dry or irritated after using this razor compared to how they feel after using other razors.  The serum, though, only lasted about a week to a week and a half with everyday shaving.

Would you recommend it?
I liked the razor.  But, I wouldn't say it replaces what I currently use now.  It's something I would buy if it was on sale.  It works well.  I didn't get any nicks or cuts, like I usually do with five-blade razors.  My skin didn't feel as irritated, either.  So, all in all, it did what it said it would do.

How much does it cost?
The suggested retail price is about $13.99.

Where can I buy it?
You can find it at all major drug stores, mass merchandisers, grocery stores and online retailers.
