I received an invitation from BzzAgent to try the Schick Hydro Silk Razor. I was actually first introduced to this razor through my Birchbox subscription, so I knew that I liked this razor before I had even received my BzzKit!
My BzzKit included:
- 10 $5 off Schick hydro silk razor coupons
- Schick hydro silk starter kit:
- 2 razor cartridges
- 1 refillable razor handle
- 1 shower hanger
Availability: I found the Schick hydro silk razor and refill cartridges in the shaving aisle at local grocery and drug stores.
Packaging: The chic design blends form with function. The razor handle has a comfortable rubber grip and ergonomic design. Also, the pivoting head helps give you a perfect shave. It had superior control around those 'hard-to-reach' places like ankles and knees. Finally, the shower hanger helps keep the razor dry and easily-accessible.
Function: The razor cartridge has 5 Curve-Sensing™blades, so the razor glided along my skin and gave me a smooth, close shave. Also, the razor cartridge has a built-in strip that contains water-activated moisturizing serum, so it left my skin feeling soft and hydrated. I did get some nicks when I first started using this razor. However, after a little practice, I was able to avoid nicks and cuts after shaving!
Verdict: I love the form and function, so I would re-purchase the Schick hydro silk razor. Apparently I'm not the only person who enjoyed this razor; it was the winner of:
- Best Razor: Cosmo Beauty Awards 2012
- Best Hair Remover: Fitness Magazine, Prevention Magazine and Ladies' Home Journal Beauty Awards 2012
