Yesterday as I was conducting the (not so completed on a regular basis) girlie task of shaving the hair, and some winter-dry skin, from my legs, I had a thought.
Yes, I think to myself while in the shower.
I am thankful for the brilliant people at Schick (I had to look that up later) for designing the Intuition Plus® Razor.
If you don't know what this is (and probably most girls already do), the Intuition Plus® Razor has a wide, curved, slip-resistant handle...three blades on a pivoting head...and a skin-conditioning, lather-creating, shaving solid which surrounds the pivoting razor head for a no-shaving-gel-required smooth shaving experience.
Ok - before you start thinking this is some type of paid advertising. It is not!
I was thinking of those persons with MS who may have dexterity issues with difficulty keeping hold of a razor, or who seek simplicity in the shower and fewer lotions and potions on the shelves, or who like to find ways to combat winter-dry skin with the best exfoliator out there, being the razor.
Some years ago (honestly I don't know when), I received a sample razor in the mail from Schick. I thought it looked a little odd, but tried it and liked it...still do.
Replacement blades are sold separately from the uniquely-shaped handle, which is a smart idea. However, don't tell Schick - but I still use the sample handle I received in the mail such a long time ago and haven't purchased a new one. So mum's the word - okay?
- I haven't nicked myself with this razor, even around the ankles.
- It is ready to go. All you need is wet skin, seriously.
- It is easy to hold and the pivoting head makes going over curves a snap.
- When rinsing the shaved hair from the razor blades, and yes sometimes my leg hair has become longish between shaves, I worry that I'm rinsing away the valuable moisturizing/shaving cream solid.
- The solid often wears away unevenly, but this can be worked around if you are clever enough to glide the solid over the skin in one pass, then glide the razor over the lathered skin in the next. Yes, this does require more thought.
- The resulting shave may not be the closest, maybe I'm not pressing hard enough or making enough passes at one spot, but it is definitely the easiest I've experienced.
Again, this is not a paid endorsement, merely my personal opinion derived from my personal experience.
