So here are a few admission to start off this review lol. We have been experiencing some really cold temperatures lately which has been a wonderful break from the heat we are so used to year round ... the problem ... I definitely didn't shave my legs as often as I should have and even when I did cheated (lol only shaved below the knee :P ). So now that the warmer temperatures are returning, it is definitely time to get out the razor and shaving lotion/cream and get to work!
My Bzzcampaign kit arrived just in time! I was definitely attracted to the packaging, but felt maybe a simpler box would have worked better as I had to practically tear mine apart to get to the razor.
I noticed that the razor came with a plastic holder that could be attached in your shower for storage. To be honest, the holder was rather flimsy and really didn't hold it in place so I just didn't use it.
I did a test run using this razor and decided that I would use my Bic soleil on one leg and the Schick hydro on the other. I gotta say, the bic soleil won hands down. I wasn't too happy with the Schick hydro results. The shave wasn't anywhere near as consistent or close as the soleil. I found that I still had patches of hair and had to go over the areas multiple times.
I used the schick brand shaving cream that was recommended to use with the product and all it did was clog up the blades and make a mess.
HOWEVER!!! There are some great perks to this product.
I do love the moisturizing bands around the blades and found that if you bypass the shaving gel and just moisten your legs with water and use the razor, the shave is actually pretty good and really does leave your legs soft to the touch. I also loved that it really moisturized my skin and didn't leave me feeling dry at all.
It has been 5 days since my shave and I can actually say I am just barely starting to see signs of light stubble. This is actually a pleasant surprise for me as I typically start seeing stubble in as little as 2 days, so I definitely like not having to shave as often!
My verdict on this product would be to give it a try. It is definitely a great product to use for those of us with sensitive skin.
