As a Bzzagent, I received the Schick Hydro Silk -sensitive care- Shaver to review, along with a free coupon to purchase Skintimate Shaving Cream, and some coupons for sharing.
The Schick Hydro Silk shaver is made to hydrate and protect your skin while shaving, keeping you from irritation, even in your most sensitive spots, including underarm and bikini. It has 5 curve sensing blades to give you an incredibly close shave, with unique skin guards on each blade, protecting from irritation. On the top of the shaver, it contains a hypoallergenic moisturizing serum, that is infused with shea butter, to keep your skin free from any irritations and give you a smooth shave. It pairs best with Skintimate Shave Gel, to provide enhanced shaver protection, leaving your skin silky smooth.
I have to admit, I didn't love this shaver. I tend to be heavy handed in literally everything I do, so when it comes to shaving...it may be weird...but I like to feel the blades shaving my skin. With the Hydro, I couldn't feel it, which makes me feel the need to push harder or shave the same spot continuously...not good. But I did my best to withhold on the deeper shave affect, and I shaved as usual. The built in moisturizing serum was really slimy and kind of annoying to wash off, but it did moisturize my legs so that was good. The problem was...the shaver did not give me a close shave as it said it would. I still had stubble's. Huge dislike. I hate hair and do not want to feel any amount of stubble's after I shave...it almost makes the whole shaving process feel pointless. I feel like it was the green band that the moisturizing serum sits in, that got in the way, because 5 blades should do a whole lot of work. I do however, like the scent of the moisturizing serum, and aside from it feeling slimy,
it does help with keeping your legs soft.
The Skintimate Shave Gel is a wonderful luxury to add in your shaving routine. It not only smells delicious, but really does leave your skin feeling so soft! Skintimate has several scents to choose from from fruity to luscious, each one delightful. I chose the Skintimate Skin Therapy for sensitive skin, with Lotionized Vitamin E. It also contains Aloe and Olive Butter to reduce irritation and help replenish skin’s natural moisture.
I love the smell and it leaves my skin feeling great! I found, that when I use this shaving cream with the Schick Hydro Silk shaver, my legs have less stubble and they feel really soft the next day. I guess the shaving cream is the secret to a good Schick shaver!
You can find both products in several stores. The Schick Hydro Silk Shaver is available as a disposable razor or a refillable like the one I received above,
with 2 cartridges and a shaver hanger.
