Review | Schick Hydro Silk Razor

Schick Description:
| hydrating
| incredibly close shave
| water-activated moisturising serum
| 5 curve-sensing blades with skin guards

What do I use it for?

I personally only like to shave my legs. For other areas, such as bikini, underarm and eyebrows, I prefer waxing. I did try the razor on my legs, bikini area and and underarm however, found it was only suitable for my legs.

How do I use it? I use this in the shower, as the moisturising serum is water-activated and did not actually realise I had to use a shaving gel as well. The tutorial video on BeautyHeaven did not use a shaving gel or cream, although I found out later, from the Schick website that you are still supposed to use one. So, my review will be based on using just the razor alone. I tried it on my underarm and bikini area only once, but I did try it on my legs a few times.

My verdict?

When I tried the razor on my underarm and bikini area, I had some irritation under my arms. I'm not sure if this is due to the actual razor or just the fact that I'm not used to shaving there. With the bikini area, I did like the way it felt after the shave but not the way the hair grew back. So for me, I still prefer waxing.
I really enjoyed using the razor for my legs, as it gave a really close shave with no cuts and it worked well on the curved areas of my legs. The moisturiser serum is great. It was very hydrating and made it a very smooth and comfortable shave. I was able to go almost a week without shaving again.
I didn't have any issues with the in-shower holder and found it quite handy. However, the moisturising serum did ooze out a little bit while I wasn't using it. I think it would benefit from an extra cap, I just use the plastic cover that it came with.
Great, quick, hydrating razor for the legs!
