I haven’t shared by reviews of the awesome products that I’ve been testing out for FREE (thanks to BzzAgent) lately! Since the Green Mountain Coffee campaign, I’ve tested out a few fun things, such as Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream, Claritin-D for allergies AND colds, and even some cereal (Kellogg’s Crunchy Nut)!
My latest BzzCampaign has involved testing out the Schick Hydro Silk razor. This has meant great things for my winter legs…one being that they’ve received a LOT of attention and have barely looked manly at all! Here is my review of my new favorite hygiene product:
When my Shick Hydro Silk razor came in the mail, I opened it right up and excitedly looked it over. Right from the get-go, I loved the big, rubbery handle and the wide blades. I couldn’t wait to try it out!
Using the razor the first time was heavenly. Because of the moisturizing serum in the cartridge, I was able to shave my legs without shaving cream or soap! It was a very smooth shave, and I never had to go back and repeat areas I had already done. The same was true for my underarms. All in all, it did everything a trustworthy razor should do!
The next time I used my Schick Hydro Silk, I tested it against my old Venus razor; I shaved each leg with a different one and compared the results. The leg that I used my Schick on was smoother and the shave was closer by far! Also, the shave lasted a day longer on the leg I shaved with my Schick. What a difference!
Even a month after using the same cartridge, the blade stayed sharp; I discovered this by accident when I nicked myself from shaving too quickly. This could be seen as positive or negative, depending on how you look at it. The razor was doing its job and I wasn’t paying enough attention, so I blame myself. I’m really impressed at how well the blades held up after a month of use!
My only real gripe about this product is the price of the replacement cartridges. Replacement cartridge in general are overpriced, in my opinion. These are slightly cheaper than my old cartridges, but I hate that the going rate for a pack of 3-5 cartridges for most brands is generally more than $15. For the reasons I’ve already discussed, I believe that Schick Hydro Silk cartridges are of a higher quality than the Venus ones I’m used to buying, and they come at a slightly better price. So, even though they’re expensive, they’re the best option overall (in my opinion).
Consider me converted to Schick Hydro Silk. The structure of the handle makes it easy to grip and maneuver, the blades are wide and durable, the moisturizing serum is effective and long-lasting, and the quality is outstanding for the price in comparison to similar products. It can do no wrong! I’m even obsessed with the suction-cup holder that keeps it from touching all the germy surfaces in the shower. I love it and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a reliable razor!
