I still remember my first razor. I must’ve been about 6 years old and was fascinated by my dad’s shaving technique.
He’d put this wacky, foamy white stuff on his face, then scrape it off with a razor. It was like magic!
My parents bought me my own little plastic razor that was one of my favorite “toys” as a kid! It had an orange plastic handle and a plastic yellow “blade” at the end. You could even unscrew the “blade” to pretend to take it off. So while my dad shaved, he’d squirt some shaving cream into my hand and help me lather up my face.
Then I’d simply scrape off the shaving cream with my very own “razor” until my skin was as smooth as only a kid’s cheeks can be.
As adults, shaving’s a little different, since it usually involves nicks, cuts, scrapes and the annoying razor burns. If only we could get a close shave with the same side effects as that little plastic razor I had as a kid.
Well, razors have most definitely come a long way. My 12-year-old son Jason hasn’t started yet, but he’s just about ready. Yeah, he has that little caterpillar under his nose, so any day now, I’ll walk him through his first shave.
When that day comes, I’ll be happy that he can take advantage of some major advances in razors. Take the new and improved Schick Hydro® 5 Razor which is so lubricating, it feels like you’re shaving with a blade made out of water! This new version doesn’t have a lube strip like most razors; instead, it has a hydrating gel reservoir.
Back when I was just starting to shave, there was one blade. That’s it. Nowadays, there are so many bells and whistles, it’s not only a faster experience to shave, but it’s more comfortable and safer for your skin. The Schick Hydro® 5 Sensitive Razor includes five Ultra Glide blades along with skin guards to really help protect our sensitive skin. And hey, if Jason’s skin is anything like mine (which I can tell it already is), it’ll be pretty sensitive.
I loved the previous Schick Hydro® Razors and the new designs help make an already great product even better! What’s so new and improved about ’em? Glad you asked!
- Hydrating Gel Reservoir – Besides instant lubricating protection and 40% less friction than lube strips, the Hydro gel moisturizes your skin for up to two hours after shaving
- Ultra Glide® Blades with Skin Guards – Breakthrough skin guards on top of each of the five blades doubles the number of contact points between blades and skin
- Flip Trimmer – Easily allows for access to hard-to-reach areas
- Ergonomically designed handle – A premium high-gloss metal and ergonomic design looks and feels great
The Schick Hydro® 5 line offers a variety of razor options including: Schick Hydro® 5,Schick Hydro® 5 Sensitive, and Schick Hydro® cartridges.
