Summer is on it's way, and when Schick reached out to me to try out their new Hydro Silk razor I immediately jumped at the chance.
I've been quite attached to my Gillette Venus for years, I love the 5 blades and the smooth shave I get without worrying about cutting myself. I'm a bit clumsy (OK a LOT clumsy) and I don't think I've ever cut myelf with a Venus razor ever. Needless to say the Hydro Silk had pretty big shoes to fill.
When I first tried out the Hydro Silk I went all scientific about it and shaved one leg with my regular Venus and the other with my new Schick. *I shave my legs with conditioner usually, I find I get just as good of shave and I usually have a bajillion bottles of unused conditioner lying around waiting to be used up so I normally can't be bothered to buy actual shaving cream. I highly recommend this BTW.
Anyway, the Schick performed amazingly, I really couldn't tell the difference (I actually think the Hydro Silk left my leg softer than the Venus). Just to be sure I demanded my best friend feel my legs too, both the same. AND I didn't cut myself once. Awesome.
The razor contains (lifted from the Schick website) 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!
It has the same gentle feel as the Venus, and 5 blades which is the razor equivalent to No Child Left Behind (no hairs left behind). The 'moisturizing serum' provides for a smooth glide and leaves your legs feeling silky smooth-perfectin time for summer.
So if you're looking to get your legs in summer shape, I definitely recommend picking up a Schick. You can never be too beach ready.
