Schick Hydro Silk™ Razor, Your New Best Friend!

Hydro Silk is Schick’s first five-bladed razor for women, each blade is mounted individually for better movement. It also helps reduce  irritation and dry skin with a water-activated serum that sits in tiny reservoirs.

This little gem is really an amazing razor. On first try I noticed how easily it glided along my legs and gave me a super close shave much faster than usual. My favorite part of the razor? My clean shave lasts longer! I have been able to double the amount of time between shaves and my skin feels so silky smooth. Definitely stocking up on refills for summer!

SCHICK HYDRO SILK™ RAZOR

After seven years of extensive research, including hundreds of focus groups and testing among thousands of women, Schick® will revolutionize women’s shaving with the introduction of the new Schick Hydro Silk™ razor.

Water-activated moisturizing serum hydrates throughout each shave: The act of shaving is known to strip skin of essential moisture and can leave it dry, dull and irritated. The Schick Hydro Silk™ razor has moisturizing serum that activates with water to help replenish skin’s natural moisture throughout each shave. This advanced lubricating reservoir is more than a reinvention of the traditional lubricating strip – it is a totally re-engineered system to be more effective, delivering soothing lubricating ingredients while hydrating the skin.

5 Curve-Sensing Blades deliver an incredibly close shave: this is Schick’s first 5-blade razor for women and it leverages 7 years of blade technology research to bring women Schick’s closest shave yet. Unlike many of their razors, the Schick Hydro Silk™ razor blades are individually mounted to the cartridge which allows the specially designed blade tips to flow smoothly over a woman’s distinctive skin contours.

Unique Skin Guards help protect skin from irritation: the invention of Skin Guards on the top of each blade–to smooth the skin while shaving, which helps reduce irritation–represents both a completely new approach to achieving closeness and an industry advancement in shaving comfort and irritation reduction. The result is a unique shaving experience that no other women’s shaving system offers.

Compact oval cartridge shape for closeness and hydration in all zones: the unique design was developed to answer consumers’ calls for a razor head that easily fit into sensitive and/or hard to reach areas as well as easily maneuvering around curves and contours.

Beautiful, ergonomic and soft aqueous handle: Recognizing that the design aesthetics are as important as the actual functional purpose that the handle serves, Schick spent two years developing the handle. This is Schick’s most beautiful, feminine handle that is as easy to control and maneuver around curves as it is attractive.

The New Schick Hyrdro Silk Razor is available at drugstores and mass retailers.

 


Best News of the Day!

A new breakthrough study featured in the latest issue of Allure suggests both topical and oral caffeine use can promote the destruction of UV-damaged skin cells, and can actually reduce our risk of basal cell carcinoma, the most common type of skin cancer! Another reason to get my daily Americano fix!

There’s increasing evidence that caffeine may help prevent skin cancer. Researchers monitored 112,897 people for more than 20 years, during which time nearly a quarter of them developed the disease. Compared with women who didn’t drink coffee, those who drank more than three cups of caffein­ated coffee daily had a 20 percent reduction in the risk of basal cell carcinoma (the most common form of skin cancer and the most prevalent cancer overall). Decaffeinated-coffee drinkers didn’t have decreased risk. Studies in mice have found that both orally ingested and topical caffeine promote the destruction of UV-damaged skin cells and reduce skin-cancer risk, says Fengju Song, an epidemiologist at Harvard School of Public Health. The new study is one of the largest to confirm the link in humans, and it’s the first to show that the effect is specific to basal cell carcinoma, which is diagnosed in about 2 million Americans per year, according to the Skin Cancer Foundation.
