Have you seen the new Schick Intuition Advanced Moisture Razors? They have these “moisture ribbons” around the blades that remove the need for a shaving gel.
I usually get my legs waxed, but after giving birth back in June and spending 2 weeks in the hospital I didn’t have the time or energy to go get my legs done so receiving this razor during my hospital stay was perfect timing. Let’s see how it worked out for me…
The moisture bar around the blades looks and feels like soap, and it even lathers up when you’re shaving, but it’s actually a moisturising bar with shea butter.
This razor comes with an extra set of blades and a holder to put on your shower wall.
The razor’s head pivots to follow your contours, and it also retracts inside the moisturising bar (so that it doesn’t stick out when the bar shortens from use).
I’ve used this razor three times so far and I can’t seem to get as close a shave as I remember being able to get with razors. When I’m in the shower and I feel my legs to see if I missed any spots, my legs feel silky smooth. But once I’m out of the shower and all dried up, my legs feel stubbly.
At first I thought it was because I haven’t used a razor in years and I was just clumsy with it, but after using it two more times and still getting the same results I don’t think it’s me. I think it has to do with the fact that the blades retract into the moisture bar – they retract in too much and I can’t get a close shave.
I know some people love this razor so maybe it’s still me that’s doing something wrong, but it’s just not working out for me.
As for the moisturising part, my legs felt very dry once I was all dried up after my shower so body lotion was a must for me (I always moisturise after my showers anyway).
I’m still using it on my underarms though, it seems to work well there. And I keep it in my shower too, the holder sticks well to my wall and has never fallen (it’s been there since July).
Have you tried this razor? What do you use for hair removal on your legs?
