Schick Hydro Silk, Seven Years in the Making

What were you doing seven years ago? Me, I was living in Washington, DC and enjoying my first “real” job out of college. Not yet married, but dating my now husband. Schick? They were designing the next best thing in razors — the Schick Hydro Silk™, launching at the end of the month. 

After seven years of testing, Schick says they have made the shaving experience better. This is welcome news. Razors have come a long way. My young nieces will likely never know the hacking my knees and ankles suffered. (I have bad vision — shower without contacts on. Mistakes happen(ed). I don’t want to talk about it.)

I’m hoping after a few more months with the Tria, I won’t have to use this on my underarm or bikini line, but my legs see a lot of razor time, especially in the summer. I’ve been using the Hydro Silk for a while now, and wanted to share my thoughts.

Schick infused this razor with a moisturizing serum that activates with water to prevent skin from being stripped of essential moisture and the resulting irritation. It sports five blades that curve and deliver a close shave. This is very noticeable to me (being a “blind” shaver and all). The design is also very ergonomic. I tend to drop my razors a lot (too many oil-based products + blind showering – I’M A MESS!) and then the blade falls off and I have to reconnect the cartridge. That doesn’t happen here. It’s so easy to hold on to and weighs next to nothing.

And the best part is we have razors to giveaway so you can try, too! Leave us a comment and we’ll email you with a unique link where you can sign up for a free Schick Hydro Silk. And if you have a case of the shower klutzies, please let us know (it will make me feel better!)

  6. I, too, am blind as a bat without my contacts on and hack up my legs fairly often (or choose to go sasquatch if i’m feeling lazy/not willing to risk cuts). I’d love to give this a try! 😀

  7. Definitely would love to try this new razor out! I completely know what you mean about no contacts & being a complete mess in the shower. :/

  8. I’d love to try a new razor-been using the same cheap-o razor since sixth grade and would love to try something new!

  9. I am also a klutz (in the shower (and out). Eyeglasses aren’t condusive to shower wear. I would love to try the new razor. = ) Do you think it migjht be workable for DH? He hacks up his face constantly and has sensitive skin. He doesn’t even need his glasses to shave, Gah!

  10. I would LOVE to try a new razor. I’ve used the Gilette Venus for many many years now. But I’m always up for trying something new!

  11. Never too late to try something new. Always looking for the next best thing and maybe this is it. Now, can we find the best mascara and/or foundation? Thanks.

  12. You are not the only shower klutz…I am forever dropping my razor in the shower and then can never reattach the blade. I would love to try this one out.

  13. I’m a total klutz…in & out of the shower! I’d love to try a new razor that doesn’t leave my legs stinging and/or bloody. Thanks for sharing!!

  14. I’ve never heard ot anyone talking about “blind” shaving before – and dropping, etc I thought it was just me! This sounds great! Thank you.

  15. I too have a case of shower klutzies. I have contacts and a tiny shower so when I hop in and i’m practically blind in the morning, my legs are definitely punished for it! trying this razor would be awesome!

  16. You could call me klutzy, although I feel I suffer most from dropsy! Its like my hands have been greased up for channel swimming! Would love to try out this razor!

  17. my issue is not so much shower klutzies.. but I tend to be in a hurry when I shave my legs, maybe because I hate doing it and get knicks all the time… this sounds like it would make shaving much more enjoyable!

  18. I haven’t checked your blog in a few days so hope I didn’t miss this. I’d love to try this and see if it beats gilettes Venus!

  19. I’m always looking for a razor with a close shave, I’ve tried 5-blade razors before and I’d love to give this a try too! Thanks!!

  20. Hi I would love to try the new schick razor, I am also a blind shaver and I have HORRIBLE ASTIGMATISM! so I know where your coming from. I am also curious for the January update about the Tria Hair removal system, hows it working so far?

  21. I currently use the Venus Spa Breeze and although it does me well I LOVE the concept of cream-free shaving and would love to compare Schick’s version up against my current razor.

  22. I’d love to try this new razor, given that my venus razor leaves me bleeding everytime i shave my legs -_-

  23. I use the venus embrace and I do not like it but I bought too many replacement blades and those are expensive so I have to use it until those run out. Would love to try this one!
