Product giveaway: Schick Hydro Silk

January 24, 2012 at 8:30 AM 15 comments


[Please note that this giveaway has now been closed as all razors have been accounted for — thank you for entering.]

I recently discovered that it’s odd that I shave my legs every day. Yep, you read right, every day (OK, maybe six days a week in the winter). I kinda thought everyone did this…any trace of stubbly hair on my legs drives me absolutely bananas.

All this to say that I’ve used my fair share of razors. And I’m kinda diggin’ this new one, the Schick Hydro Silk. The slightly rubbery handle makes it feel more secure in my hand (less chance of dropping it); there’s a hole angled just so where my index finger rests just right for shaving action; the broad shaving head with five (five!) blades gives a nice, smooth shave (no nicks or cuts for me — the blades are said to be curve-sensing). And the colour is a nice, pleasant watery blue (kinda spa-like in feeling).

One benefit it promises? More hydration. Now that I’m undecided on whether it delivers. My skin’s pretty dry on an average day and right now it’s particularly parched cuz it’s winter so hard for me to judge if my legs have more moisture. But in the meantime, I keep touching my legs like a weirdo to check their hydration status (besides enjoying how smooth they are).

Anyhow, this razor’s been seven (seven!) years in the making, and overall all the design and innovation has paid off, in my opinion. You can find out more about it at btw.

What’s your opinion?  Well, here’s the good news — you can try it out for free and let me know!

I’ve got 50 razors to share with 50 of y’all.

 All you have to do is email me ( with your name and address (please put Hydro Silk in the subject line) and you’ll get a Hydro Silk of your very own to test out. (oops, plus you have to be a Canadian resident, forgot to mention that before!)

In return, all I need you to do is email me your feedback on the razor — five simple questions, I promise it’ll take you only a few minutes. And I’ll be compiling your replies into a blog post in a few weeks.

Worth it, right? So email me ASAP as only the first 50 people will be getting a razor to test out.

    You’re not alone. I had no clue it’s odd to shave everyday…I do it regardless if others are seeing my legs that day or not!
