Schick Hydro Silk Razor Review + Giveaway

I was invited, among a few others, to receive and review the new Schick Hydro Silk Razor for you guys and also give you the opportunity to receive and sample the product yourself and review for yourself! (Details below)

Schick recently released this ultra new razor that claims to rehydrate your skin will shaving. Schick states that this new razor is "the only woman's razor with water-activated moisturizer serum-it hydrates skin like no other razor can . Plus, it has 5 Curve-Sensing blades with unique skin guards that give you a super close shave while helping to protect your skin's delicate surface."

When it comes to winter, I don't "usually" shave that often. I find no need because its an extra step and I cover up anyways from the cold haha. When I first received this razor, I was quite excited. I really did need a shave and was in the mood to indulge in some much needed pampering. 

Right of the bat, I appreciated the ergonomic handle of this razor. it was easy to hold and use, and the blade glided quite smoothly on my skin. I really need a shave big time so I was impressed to see it work so efficiently. I normally use a very hydrating shaving cream because I do suffer from dry skin although my face tends to be an oil slick. (sigh) The moisturizing properties of this blade wasn't heavily noticeable but it didn't tug or nick my skin. In that aspect, I appreciate the five blades because it gave me a very smooth and close shave.

I was quite impressed by the razor but was a little underwhelmed by its ability to rehydrate my skin. That is something I leave to my shaving cream and moisturizer after the shower. This, however, does not mean the blade was not good. I just can't say too much about its moisturizing properties.

I did really enjoy using this blade though and I am very happy to allow you guys the chance to try and review the blade as well!
