I had the opportunity to try out Schick’s Hydro Silk razor. I must admit first off that I am not used to a non-disposable razor as I usually use the cheapest 2-4 blade disposable razor that I can find. So, with that said this was a special treat to use a fancy razor for a change and I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed it!!
The Hydro Silk razor has 5 blades so it easily cuts the hair in one quick swipe without having to go over the same spot more than once.
It has water-activated moisturizing serum so you don’t have to add extra soap before you shave. This actually gives you a nice amount of moisture too, which is not so with many of the other brands that claim that you don’t have to use any soap. I didn't use soap and I didn't get razor burn:-)
The cartridges are easy to discard and put on a new one.
It is around the same price as other similar brands.
The handle is shaped nicely and easily fits in my hand and glides easily.
I didn't feel like I was going to cut myself when I was shaving.
The blades seem to last a long time.
Since there is an area above and below the razor blades for the moisturizing serum it is a bit bulky and doesn't easily get around my ankle or underarms.
The shave is not as close so I have to shave more often.
All-in-all I would recommend this razor to others as it does what it claims and is a good razor.
Thank you to Schick and BzzAgent for providing me with the opportunity to try this product for free in exchange for my honest review.
