Recently we reached out to our beauty-savvy Lipstick Powder N Paint readers, asking them to try out the new Schick Hydro Silk™ razor and provide their feedback.
Our Editor, Lesley Ellen Mirza, also test-drove the razor to rid herself of unwanted fuzz.
“My name is Lesley and I have a shaving problem. My problem? I hardly ever shave.
Ok, I know that sounds gross. And yes, I am a tad furry during the winter months – please don’t ask me to pull up my pant legs in public – but shaving usually leaves my overly-sensitive skin sore, raw and itchy. Truth.
I was skeptical when asked to try the Schick Hydro Silk™ razor, but as a beauty editor, I’ve gotta take one for the team.
I found the design of the handle excellent: it was comfortable to hold and felt very secure in my hand. The five (yes, five) blades provided me with a super-close shave – and the Hubster appreciates that. *grin* But what I really found appealing was that my legs felt softer and actually hydrated after shaving (that’s cause of the water-activated moisturizing serum). And I had no irritation post-shaving. Love it! Yup, I would definitely recommend this razor.”
So, you’ve read what our Editor thought about this razor, but what about our 25 testers? Keep reading to see their honest feedback. (more…)

Ladies, it may be winter-time, but that doesn’t mean woolly mammoth legs are in. We suggest keeping your skin fur-free, smooth and hydrated with a little help from Schick.
The Schick Hydro Silk™ is a uniquely designed razor that goes beyond an incredibly close shave to actually care for your skin by replenishing moisture during shaving and reducing irritation, leaving skin feeling silky smooth. It achieves this with its unique water-activated moisturizing serum that hydrates skin throughout each shave. Plus, its 5 curve-sensing blades with unique Skin Guards help to protect women’s skin from irritation. It will be available starting in February at grocery, drug and mass retail outlets across Canada. The suggested retail price for the razor is $13.99.
We are looking for 25 Canadian readers to test the new Schick Hydro Silk™ razor for themselves, and provide honest and unbiased feedback. If this sounds like something you would be interested in, click here to complete a short qualification survey (before January 29th, 2012).
And guess what? Our Editor, Lesley Ellen, will also be testing Schick Hydro Silk™ and sharing her opinion on this product too!

Razor burn, cuts and bumps are dirty words when it comes to smooth legs. To get the best results from shaving, you need a good combination of razor and technique.
It is best to shave your legs at the very end of your shower or bath. The heat and moisture will have had a chance to work their magic and make hair softer and easier to shave. Slather legs with a shaving cream or gel before you shave – this will allow your razor to glide over the area. Because shaving exfoliates the skin, you need to follow up with your favourite body cream, lotion or oil to prevent dryness.
Razors come in different shapes, sizes and with different numbers of blades and moisture strips. You need to find the right one for you. Just remember to change your blade every two weeks or so, depending on how often you want to be fuzz free. (more…)
