Review: Schick Hydro Silk Razor

I received the Schick Hydro Silk Razor via a giveaway on Facebook that Schick ran. I must say that it beats every other razor that I have ever tried but I would not say that it is my holy grail razor.

Kudos to the five curve-sensing blade technology because this razor provides a really close shave without any discomfort. It leaves my legs relatively smooth and hairless. The design of the handle is well thought out as its soft rubber grip comes in handy when you are in the shower where things can become slippery from there. The skin guard is thick and does not wear quickly. It reduces skin irritation and prolongs the longevity of my use of this razor as I toss razors once they start to give me discomfort.

The only problem with the design is that the razor head detaches really easily from the handle. I am not sure if it is just my razor but my razor head detaches itself from the handle so often that it annoys me. It would be better if the razor head did not detach itself from the handle so easily. The only bonus is that I found it easy to attach it back to the handle.

The razor "delivers a hydrating water-activated moisturising serum to skin" which I found to be novel. It made my legs feel hydrated and moisturized as shaving tends to be quite drying. However, the serum is not limitless and does run out rather quickly. It is not practical to repurchase another because the razor is still sharp and perfectly fine to use. At $14.25 for the kit or $19.25 for the refills, I would not go out to repurchase them just for the serum. I will probably repurchase when the razor becomes blunt but not until then. Using a body lotion after shaving will moisturize my legs just as well but I guess convenience does come with a price.
Is it weird to be after a HG razor? What do you think of Schick Hydro Silk Razor?

  1. Mine does the same thing, it comes apart so easily and it's a pain to reattach with slippery hands in the shower! I like it but the moisturising strip gets a bit too gooey and I end up with threads running from the razor to my skin which reminds me of the move Aliens and grosses me out a bit. It does moisturise well though, I didn't need a separate body lotion after shaving.

    1. Hi Kris!

      Haha... I like your analogy using the movie Aliens! The moisturizing serum kinda freaked me out at first but I got used to it pretty quickly. My quib with it is that it runs out really quickly. Do you have that problem too?
