Review: Schick Hydro Silk Shaver for women :)
Happy Wednesday :) I hope you are enjoying your week! I'm very lucky and only have one more day of work and then heading off for a full day of pampering with a girlfriend of mine. Living it up! :P
Today's post is a review on the Schick Hydro Silk shaver for women. This was provided by beautyheaven.com.au to trial.
Some background on my hair removal habits...I am pretty lazy when it comes to shaving my legs. During winter, I may not even bother shaving my legs seeing how they will be covered up all winter long anyway (and its really only my hubs that has to deal with the hairyness haha). But now that spring is here and summer is literally less than a month away, time to take those legs out from hiding and strut around in those denim cutoffs all summer long. Which means hair removal must take place.
As part of this trial I shaved one leg using the Schick Hydro Silk and the other leg using my current "no frills" shaver. My "no frills" shaver does have a strip of Vitamin E above the blades (as most shavers do these days).
The box comes comes with two shaver heads and also a shaver holder which you can attach to your bathroom wall using suction. This is a very nifty gadget and even the hubs was impressed. I was also provided with a box of shaver heads!
The shaver itself is very sturdy and has lots of grip so you are in full control. As I shaved my leg, it felt amazingly silky and smooth. It was really easy to shave my legs and felt really good to use on my skin. The moisturising serum is activated by water and it allows the shaver to glide over your skin while shaving off the hairs. It definitely felt quite luxurious compared to my current "no frills" razor.
After the shave
My legs felt smooth (as did my other leg) but I definitely notice that my leg shaved by the Schick Hydro Silk was more moisturised than my other leg shaved by the "no frills". That night I didn’t apply any moisturiser to either of my legs. The next day, both my legs felt both dry lol. The regrowth on my legs appear to be the same on both – there is no significant difference from what I can see.
Overall thoughts - 5 stars!
If you are looking for a razor that is easy to use, glides over your skin and gives you moisturised legs straight afterwards, I recommend this product. It is a notch above your standard razor and will leave your legs feeling hydrated and moisturised after the shave.
