For Examiner.Com | I was recently asked to test the newest Schick Hydro® products as part of a sponsored post for the Socialstars campaign, #MakeItEpic. What better time to test these products than during a winter getaway to Vail, Colorado; a place where I like to have a clean shave by day on the slopes, and then at night when venturing out into the picturesque Vail Village for dinner. I started by learning a bit more about the products, as well as the latest #MakeItEpic details on the Tumblr site at http://epic.schick.com.
When looking for a winter destination in the United States that provides that quintessential ski village getaway, Vail is hard to beat, and has been one of the most preferred winter vacation destinations for more than 50 years. While being one of the largest ski resorts in the world with more than 5,200 acres of skiable terrain is beyond attractive, it’s the intimate feel of the European-inspired Village that makes Vail such an extraordinary place to visit, and certainly an epic adventure by day and night.
As I always try to keep an open-mind when trying new products, I was not sure what to expect from Schick’s newest products – would it revolutionize my shaving experience, or would it be more hype? I personally found that the shave brought good results, and did not irritate my skin. According to Schick, this is primarily because only Hydro® has hydrating gel with shave oils that work with skin guards to reduce friction and irritation stroke after stroke. I don’t get into the details of the technology behind the products, but in this case, the clean shave speaks for itself.
The Schick Hydro® 5 Groomer is the only 4-in-1 high performance styling tool with patented technology that shaves, grooms, edges and hydrates throughout each shave. With a Schick Hydro® 5 razor on one end and an adjustable power trimmer on the other, this convenient all-in-one tool eliminates the need for multiple attachments, making it easier than ever for men to maintain their personal grooming styles.
The Schick Hydro® 5 Sensitive Razor and Refills is a dermatologist-tested razor system designed to handle sensitive skin, with the hydrating technology men expect from Schick Hydro®. The Schick Hydro® 5 Sensitive Razor and Refills feature five Ultra Glide® blades and patented Skin Guards that help protect sensitive skin, as well as a Hydrating Gel Reservoir with aloe and Vitamin E that consistently lubricates throughout each shave to help reduce irritation and redness with every stroke – for all around comfort.
