Schick Hydro 5 Men’s Razor

As a blogger and someone who reviews products, you can imagine the huge amount of testing that’s been going on in my household over the last {almost} 8 years. If you had to guess what one particular products arrival, makes my husband the happiest – what would that be? 

Answer: Schick men’s razors. 

When it comes to the best shave, Schicks mens disposable razors are his top preference – hands down. Which says a lot considering he’s tried them all over the years, again, thanks to my job and the plethora of razors he’s had the opportunity to test.

So when the new Schick Hydro® 5 men’s razor landed on our doorstep recently, he was quite honestly more excited than I could possibly explain. I’m actually lucky that I was able to get my hands on it to photograph, before he ripped open the package. Anyway, I guess I don’t have to question the importance that a man places on a top-notch facial shave – ever.

Review of the Schick Hydro 5

My husband claims the Schick Hydro 5 is the best Schick razor yet. The package of the Schick Hydro 5 says that for greater comfort, use with Edge Shave Gel, which he does occasionally use, but he didn’t this time. He shaved in the morning and continued to go on and on about it all day, remarking on how well the razor works and how he didn’t have to go over an area multiple times. He definitely thought this was his best shave yet.

After using the Schick Hydro 5 his face was very touchable soft, more than usual actually. He also made a clever remark hours later as he felt his own cheek, ‘like a 12 year old boy’. Also, forget 5 o’clock shadow, his face was still smooth with no signs of stubble well into the next day! Again, I don’t  question the importance of a top-notch facial shave, I think that last remark about says it all. 

The Schick Hydro 5 is available at food, drug and mass retail outlets nationwide, for a suggested retail price of $10.99, with two cartridges included. This fact alone once again blew him over since he’d assume the price point was more than that – which is another added bonus to this product and something that made him smile even more.
