Myself and the Schick Hydro team will send over the new Schick Hydro 5® razor to your home in exchange to review on Amazon Canada’s website, and once posted, you will be put forward for a chance to win a $100 prepaid gift card. Further details below:

My review of the Schick Hydro 5 razor

I love Schick Hydro and have been using their products for years! More specifically, I love that they have these amazing signature hydrating gel reservoirs on their razors that decrease irritation by 40% (when compared to lube strips) and also act as a protective layer on the skin. I have combination skin (dry and oily), so for myself it is super important to ensure that my razors have a solid amount of lubrication, if not, I can easily get cuts. So when I knew that I was definitely going to enjoy the upgraded larger gel reservoir on the new Schick Hydro 5®. In terms of the areas that I planned on shaving, I wanted to maintain my beard. So I tried this product on my neck, used it to line my beard, and shaved the rest of my face (which is a great way to exfoliate your skin).

The first thing I noticed while trying out the razor was that it glided super smoothly on the skin, and didn’t feel like it was pulling on my hair. The razor does also feature 5 Ultra Glide Blades which I am going to assume was the reason for the super smooth feeling. I also noted that it took me less swipes than my previous razor that I was using. Overall the shave was smooth, and my skin stayed nice and hydrated and I would definitely recommend this product!
