Make Life a Little Simpler {Plus Schick Intuition Reader Reviews} #SchickAmbassador

The other day I made the mistake of taking a shower. It was a beautiful sunny day, so Kay decided she could be helpful by putting on sunscreen while I was washing my hair. She applied it generously (Just like I taught her!) to her face and her arms. Hmmm, I guess it could be worse.

But wait. What if the piano gets sunburned? When you’re four years old, this is a valid concern. So my very sun-conscious little person slathered sunscreen on the piano too. All over the keys, and in between too.

Oh, boy. Between cleaning the piano and seasoning a chicken for dinner, I lost track of the time and was late picking up her older sister from school. Quick! Throw the bird in the oven and run out the door. Strap Kay into her car seat. Oops, somehow I missed that glop of sunscreen in her hair. Get down to the school, get Tee in the car. Stop for gas. Get home and throw the veggies in the oven. Help Tee find her karate gi (Why on earth did she stuff it behind the couch?), drive them to karate, then race home to get dinner on the table at a reasonable hour. Oh, and now it’s time for bed!

At least I know at bedtime we’ll have a chance to breathe for a minute, read a story together, and snuggle before bed. It may seem like a small part of our day, but it’s actually one of the highlights. I can forget all about the chaos of the day and just enjoy my children’s company. It’s simple like that.

When I have so little time for myself, it’s simple little things like a bedtime snuggle that help keep me sane. Little things like green lights all the way to school pickup, or my new Schick Intuition razor.

This unique razor has a skin moisturizing solid surrounding the blades that lathers into its own shaving cream. All I have to do is add water, shave, rinse, and go. No need for shaving cream or gel, and no need for moisturizer after either!

The moisturizing solid contains aloe and vitamin E to soothe and hydrate at the same time as it provides a close shave with its 4-blade pivoting head. My legs are soft, smooth, and nick-free in no time. I love how this simplifies my routine, and less time in the shower means less time that my 4-year-old is unsupervised with the sunscreen!

I recently offered some of my readers the opportunity to try a Schick Intuition razor for themselves and report back their honest thoughts in exchange for an entry into my giveaway for a $100 prepaid gift card. Take a look in the comments to see what they have to say!

  • I loved this razor!! I used it when it was newer and it is AMAZING for legs and pits!! The part that I didn’t like is that I had to have a separate one for my bikini line lol! I felt like I was collecting razors!

  • #Gotitfree in exchange for my honest feedback on the product, which is also a contest entry. This is a very nice razor, and makes shaving super quick and easy (which is very important for a mom of two!) The shaving moisturizer feels great on the skin, and lathers the skin with just the right amount to protect while shaving. The handle is nice and soft, and it is very comfortable to hold and use. One thing that I don’t like is that I will have to replace the blade/moisturizer too often for my liking. I can tell that it is going to be out of moisturizer very quickly, so I will have to buy quite a few replacements. I do like how the razor came with an additional blade for that reason, but I still feel that the cost would add up quickly. Overall, I do like the Schick Intuition, and it gives a smooth shave in a short amount of time!

  • #Gotitfree in exchange for my honest feedback on the product, which is also a contest. The Schick Intuition will now be my go to razor as I love how it leaves my legs feeling so smooth, with other razors my legs always feel itchy for a couple of days after shaving but not with the Intuition! The other thing I like is that I can shave the whole length of my leg with one smooth stroke which makes it so much easier and quicker!

  • I #Gotitfree from The West Coast Mommy. The Schick Intuition Effect razor is one of the best razors I have used. I have been a Schick Hydro Silk razor fan for as long as I could remember and probably wouldn’t have glanced at any other razors, but since receiving the Schick Intuition Effect razor this week I have put it to use to get my legs silky smooth and hair free for the long weekend and today was the test day. I used it instead of my Schick Hydro Silk razor and I can say I am really impressed. I really enjoy the moisturizing solid as it saved time and mess from my hair removal routine and left my legs super soft. I enjoy the 4 blades and it does the job of hair removal as good as the Hydro Silk but with added softness from the aloe and vitamin e. I am impressed with this razor and will be replacing my Hydro Silk with the Intuition Effect razor in the future.

  • #Gotitfree in exchange for my honest feedback on the product, which is also a contest entry. I enjoyed this razor it was so amazing silky and smooth and left me feeling soft and silky I think everyone should get this razor it’s not like the other ones on the market it’s ready and easy to.use and very affordable try it for sure everyone you won’t be disappointed

  • “#Gotitfree in exchange for my honest feedback on the product, which is also a contest entry.” I thought from the size of the razor that it would be awkward for my underarms but the head is flexible and worked nicely. I’ve used it twice and my legs are staying soft and smooth. The fact that you don’t need the shave cream or lotion afterwards, means it will save you money. I have also checked out the cost of replacement blades and it was less expensive than at least one or two of the competitors – bonus.

  • #Gotitfree in exchange for my honest feedback on the product, which is also a contest entry.
    The razor is quite large compared to a regular razor. At first I was worried that it would be clumsy, but when I tried it, for its large size it surprisingly offers a smooth glide. The skin conditioning solid really does making the shave quite nice without the need of a shaving gel. My skin felt moisturized, even better than when I used my shaving gel. I have only used it a few times so not sure what would happen when the skin conditioning gel runs out. I am hoping that you get at least 20-30 shaves before having the change the blade.
    Overall, I really like the concept. It really does make it very easy to shave. If they can make a smaller travel size it would be perfect for travelling as all you need to bring is this razor, no need to pack a separate shaving gel.

  • #Gotitfree in exchange for my honest feedback on the product, which is also a contest entry.
    The razor is quite big, and comes with a replacement cartridge. It feels comfortable in hand, but it can’t fit my razor holder in the shower. If you watched the TV commercial for this razor, it doesn’t really work that way 🙂 Besides making the razor wet, I had to get my legs really wet, or the shaving cream around the blades would start skipping. Also, obviously, I needed to rinse every now and then, although less than with my regular way of shaving, so I’d say stay close to a water source. I had to moisturize after using it, but it could be just because of my dry skin.
    It was super fast to shave my whole legs with this razor though, and easy to rinse off the remaining shave cream. I did get a few cuts, that I don’t usually get when shaving, and I think it’s because I was pressing a bit too hard. There is definitely a learning curve here, it takes some getting used to this razor. I also don’t think it’s good for smaller and curvier surfaces, like underarms and toes – I didn’t get a really close shave there.
    It feels a bit wasteful to throw away the whole cartridge ones the shaving cream is gone, since it feels like it’s going to be used up way faster than I’d change my razor usually. However, this razor would be great for travel, since it eliminates the need for any additional shaving product, and the shaving cream in the cartridge is solid, so there is no fear of spilling.
    If I had to assign a value to this product, I’d say it’s good, but not perfect – a 4/5 or 7.5/10 for me.

  • #Gotitfree in exchange for my honest feedback on the product, which is also contest entry
    Considering I normally shave without shaving cream, this razor was very nice! My legs felt silky smooth afterwards (even my husband noticed). What I didn’t like is that the head seemed rather large because of the moisturizing block surrounding the razor blade. I didn’t get the shave I liked around my bikini line because it was bulky. Overall, it was nice and I would definitely use it on my legs.

  • I #Gotitfree in exchange for my honest feedback on the product, which is also a contest.

    I liked the Schick Intuition Razor for some tasks and not others. For my legs it was quick and easy, I loved that it was one step. My legs were smooth and moisturizer. In my arm pits the razor was much too bulky to fit in and get a close shave, I ended up with stubble and razor burn.

    I’ll continue to use this product on my legs for quickness jobs when I just don’t have time for anything more (which is pretty frequent) but I’ll stick to a razor with a smaller head for underarms and bikini areas.

  • #Gotitfree in exchange for my honest feedback on the product, which is also a contest entry.

    I’ve got a confession to make. Out on the East Coast summer has been taking its sweet time to arrive. So I’ve been rather lax with shaving my legs as of late because I’ve been still wearing pants nearly every single day. Sigh. Anyhow, we had big plans for the Canada150 long weekend so I definitely needed to shave my legs and bits and pieces to feel ready to kick off summer. I was looking rather like a Cave Woman so I knew I’d really be putting my new Schick Intuition razor to the test. My kids were off to morning summer camp and I was excited to come home to have 3 hours all to myself to primp and preen and beautify myself for a weekend of celebrations. My Schick Inuition Sensitive Care razor did not disappoint! I just love that the lather and shave is all in one. No muss, no fuss is what I’m all about so I like that I don’t need to use shaving cream to get a nice smooth, clean shave. I really like the Aloe and Vitamin E in it. The 4 blades made my body super soft from its close shave. My legs were super soft all day and even the next. Definitely my new go to razor for the summer.

  • #Gotitfree in exchange for my honest feedback on the product, which is also a contest entry

    I was so excited to get Schick Intuition Sensitive Core for this review! I have a bit sensitive skin when it comes to shaving. It has Aloe & Vitamin E and the scent is really subtle. This razor is perfect in every way. It comes with a skin moisturizing solid – so I didn’t need to apply shave gel, cream or foam. I just used it in the shower for my legs and underarms. For the underarms, I had to go over it a couple of times to get all the hairs but it wasn’t that bad. I just had to go over my legs once. No razor burn, no cuts or dryness afterwards. I would purchase the refill for this! Also, if you buy the initial razor it comes with a refill already.

  • #Gotitfree in exchange for my honest feedback on the product, which is also a contest entry. I’m often in a rush, even when showering and sometimes I skip shaving until I really have to! At first I thought this Schick Intuition razor was a bit larger than other razors I have used, but after I tried it out, it is comfortable to use. My favourite part of the razor is definitely the moisturizing solid, which doesn’t require any additional shaving gel! It glides smoothly with just water, and gives a really clean shave. I’ve found it does save time since I don’t need to apply any other moisturizers. It didn’t take long for me to become used to this razor and I would recommend it for the convenience and results!

  • #Gotitfree in exchange for my honest feedback on the product
    I tried the shick intuition razor and love it. I love the fact you dont have to use shave gel or soap when shaving and it speeds up the process. Its super easy and quick! I like the rubber on the handle to ensure it doesn’t slip and cause a cut. The only drawback is the razor portion. I shave daily and at the end of the first week the soap surrounding the razor was just about gone yet the razor itself was still fine to use. If they could figure out a longer lasting soap I would use this razor regularly for sure.

  • #Gotitfree in exchange for my honest feedback on the product, which is also a contest entry.
    This razor makes it easy to get in and out of the shower quickly, with the already moisturized pad surrounding the 4 very sharp blades, there’s no messing around with the shaving cream anymore.
    The 2 things i didn’t like were the size of it, it’s a bit bulky ( but very lightweight!) and I needed to use a different razor for the bikini line. I would reccomend this razor to my gfs which i infact did by gifting the extra one they sent!

  • I have mixed feelings about this razor and am not convinced that it would replace my current.

    Cons:
    – The size makes it a space hog in the shower and outside the shower if choosing to store it elsewhere. –
    – The shave itself I truly did not find as close as other razors. When I thought this may be due to not pressing hard enough/the outside of the head getting in the way, I pressed harder which led to nicks I never get otherwise.
    Since you need to rinse a razor, the moisturizing strip would wash away in the rinse cycle, making the strip disappear more quickly than I’d like.

    Pros:
    – The concept of skipping the shaving cream step – however, I am not convinced the execution is there for me. At this point I would use it for travel circumstances only to not have to transport shaving cream.
    – It got to places I didn’t think it would due to its size.

  • #Gotitfree Sometimes life sneaks up on us before we’ve had the chance to even give a thought to the possibility of having to experience one of life’s little challenges. Frozen Shoulder is a force to be reckoned with…so wonderful to have had the opportunity to try #SchickIntuition and share with you its effect on my life…I feel as though #SchickIntuition was made just for me. The self lathering creates a smooth shave, the aloe leaves a soothing feel afterwards. The large handle grip is a treat for us with joint pain/swelling in our hands. The aroma is simple yet refreshing and the bonus razor attachment is…well…a bonus! I love love love this razor and recommend #SchickIntuition to anyone who wants a more delicate, controlled and freshly fragrant shaving experience. Thank you #TheWestCoastMommy #SchickIntuition #Gotitfree

  • #gotitfree in exchange for my honest feedback on the product, which is also a contest entry.

    I loved this razor. How great is it that you don’t need to use shaving cream. Not only does it save a step and time, but money as well.
    What impressed me the most was how close of a shave I got as well as no cuts on my legs.
    It also saved me from using another shaver around my bikini area💕

  • — #Gotitfree in exchange for my honest feedback on the product, which is also a contest entry. —

    Before receiving this Schick Intuition razor from This West Coast Mommy, I was using the Schick Hydro razor. The hydro has 5 blades and the intuition has only 4, but the shave is just as smooth and close, which surprised me. The built-in moisturizer and shaving lotion is amazing! I’ve always just used ordinary shower gel (that I inevitably forget to put back on the shelf and so my toddler dumps it all into his bathwater), but with this built-in bar my legs and armpits are a great deal softer and not dry at all. One downside is I feel like I’m wasting the bar a bit when I rinse the blade afterwards, but so far there is plenty left. The box came with a second blade/bar and once that’s gone I intend to buy more refills. I like how the Intuition simplifies my shower time and leaves less clutter.

  • #Gotitfree in exchange for my honest feedback on the product, which is also a contest entry.

    Shick Intuition Razors are my favourite kind of razors – especially during the summer! With 2 kids who are constantly at each other’s throats showers either need to be fast or they’re non-existent unless I want to wait until my husband gets home from work. Shaving is pretty much not happening because IF I do get a shower before he’s home it’s a quick in and out. This razor cut out the middle man for me (lathering) and it’s just a quick couple of swipes for soft and smooth legs. With other Schick Intuition Razors I didn’t like that I had to replace the blades so often but I’ve found the way to prolong them is by making sure there is no water on the inside to eat away at them and if at all possible store in a dry place when you’re done not in the shower.

  • #Gotitfree in exchange for my honest feedback on the product, which is also a contest entry. I never shave. I’ve always been lazy about it, but I never bothered last summer because of my huge baby belly, and haven’t since because of the baby. It’s nice that it’s a simpler process with the built in soap, but the soap is only good for about one shave. I’m sure it would last a bit longer for regular shavers but my gorilla legs meant I couldn’t even do a full stroke before I had to rinse the blade, and therefore the soap. I liked that the soap was for sensitive skin, but I would have preferred it to also be unscented. It’s a good razor, but not good enough to convert me to a full time leg shaver. I’m not sure if there’s any razor capable of that!

  • #Gotitfree in exchange for my honest feedback on the product.

    Pros –
    Easy to handle, comfortable grip
    No need to bring shaving cream while travelling
    Glides super easy over skin
    A cap with vent holes to store it between uses
    Not a nick in sight!
    Great light gentle scent (and I don’t like stinky things so that says a lot)
    Nice close shave and leaves skin feeling smooth and soft

    Cons –
    At an average of @ $5/ replacement cartridge it’s a bit steep
    The bulkiness is a bit of a minus
    Don’t know where to store it between shaves
    Not crazy about drying it out, but feel it’s a must between uses to keep the cartridge lasting as long as possible

    Overall this razor wins out for convenience and times savings (those outweigh the Cons any day). A smidge of time here and there is something we can all use a little more of these days.

    Thank you Olivia and Schick for sponsoring this trial. What a great opportunity to try something out before purchasing it!

      **** Amending my contest entry wording ****

  • #Gotitfree in exchange for my honest feedback on the product, which is also a contest entry. In theory this is a great idea, blades surrounding the ‘lotion’ so it’s an all in one razor. It’s a little on the large size for me and doesn’t really follow along the curves of your leg. Great for underarms and super quick there. It was difficult on my knees to get the job done in one swipe. I think it would be great to take camping or for quick touch ups. I think i would give it a 7/10 just because it doesn’t bend to your shape but it does make things easier. Thanks.

  • #Gotitfree in exchange for my honest feedback on the product, which is also a contest entry. I’ve been using Schick Intuition razors for a number of years now. I just can’t imagine using any other. I love that I don’t have to lather up or use a shaving gel with the razor. The cartridge contains the shaving gel and moisturizer. And the scent is very subtle too. The larger size of the cartridge means less strokes to get my legs smooth and silky. It worked well on my underarms too.

  • #Gotitfree in exchange for my honest feedback on the product, which is also a contest entry.
    I love this razor, it makes life so much simpler. I can now shower on the go and not just wash my hair, with the all in 1 I no longer need to worry about bringing shave gel and moisturizer with time to the gym. I feel like my shower time is cut in half, this comes in handy especially since I have 3 little ones and it’s been so hot lately.
    We went away for the long weekend, packing this razor helped lessen the load in my travel bag as well.
    I highly recommend it, close smooth shave. No nicks! Easy to use and store.

  • #Gotitfree in exchange for my honest feedback on the product, which is also a contest entry.

    When this razor arrived, I was a bit surprised at how bulky it appeared. However, once I removed it from the package, it is extremely light weight and easy to use.

    I appreciate the moisturized soap bar for two reasons. One – it takes the extra step out of my “I hate shaving my legs” routine. And, two – I always forget to buy shaving gel!! Feeling moisturized when done is a bonus.

    I usually avoid scented products, but this is light enough that it didn’t bother me at all.

    Love the travel/storage cap and slightly larger handle – great grip.

    My only concern is that the soap bar will probably be gone long before I am ready to change blades. Only time will tell!

    I am impressed enough with this razor that I will definitely purchase replacement blades to continue using it. Thank you for the opportunity to try a product that I would not normally consider.

  • #Gotitfree in exchange for my honest feedback on the product, which is also a contest entry.

    I was skeptical trying this razor at first, but after using it a few times I found it to give a close comfortable shave. It was just as good or maybe a little better than my current razor because of the extra moisturizer. I’m not sure I would buy one in the store because I might get some funny looks but it was definitely worth trying!

  • #Gotitfree in exchange for my honest feedback on the product, which is also a contest entry. Having a 2 week old newborn and a two-year old running around the house, I also don’t have a lot of time on my hands! I’ll admit that when I first received the razor I was daunted by its size — it seemed like it would be too big to use easily. But when I found the time to take a bath and use it, it was surprisingly quick (about a minute or less for each leg, which is pretty darn good considering my English hairy-leg background!). My legs felt great — I definitely didn’t didn’t feel the need to use moisturizer afterwards as with a typical razor. I’ve used Venus for many years, but feel the Schick intuition steps it up a notch in convenience and effectiveness. Now two days post-shave, I also find the typical itchiness I get after shaving is less than I would normally experience (not nonexistent, but definitely improved). Thanks for the opportunity to review this razor — I think I’ve found a new favourite to easily squeeze into my tight schedule! Both my husband and fellow pool-goers, not to mention myself, will be happy!

  • #Gotitfree in exchange for my honest feedback on the product, which is also a contest entry.
    I like the fact you don’t need to do anything extra as in putting on shaving gel, as this already comes with it’s on “soap”. It’s not drying or irritating to the skin. The head glides easily over the skin to deliver a painless and quick clean shave. Would recommend to family & friends.

  • : #Gotitfree in exchange for my honest feedback on the product, which is also a contest entry. Loved this razor, I have arthritis in my hands and found this very comfortable and easy to handle, the pivoting head gave me a smooth non irritating shave around all the bumps on these old legs. Perfect for vacations as I do not need a shave gel and the Aloe and Vitamin E did seem to moisturize. The 4 blades did give me a very smooth close shave. I am hoping that I will not have to replace the blade/moisturizer too often, time will tell as I have only used it 4 times.Overall, I do really like the Schick Intuition and it will no doubt become my regular razor of choice.

  • #Gotitfree in exchange for my honest feedback on the product, which is also a contest entry. This is my go-to razor. I absolutely love the no shaving cream portion of this exercise. Just lather with the bar on the razor and go. It is easy to use and convenient. I just wish the bar was a bit thicker so it would last longer. The blades do last a long while and you can pop off the old cartridge and replace it with a new one which is great too. I would definitely give this a thumbs up.

  • #Gotitfree in exchange for my honest feedback on the product, which is also a contest entry. This razor is amazing. It has the right level of comfort and effective shaving ability- without having to use shaving cream, which is awesome. It is really easy to shave and gets rid of all the hair. I also like that it came with replacement blades. This is definitely my favourite schick razor.

  • #Gotitfree in exchange for my honest feedback on the product, which is also a contest entry.
    I tried the and like how it works. Schick gives pretty smooth shave and I do not need to use two separate items since moisturizing blade coves everything. It moves very good thanks to special handle, even though it is quite big but I like it. This Schick also smells very nice. I am glad it comes with second replacement blade so that I am covered for another round. Overall, great product and essential one for my lifestyle!

  • I #Gotitfree in exchange for my honest feedback on the product, which is also a contest entry. I recently had the opportunity to try out the Schick Intuition razor that required no shave gel. At first I thought it would be awkward to shave because of it’s large size but honestly shaving wasn’t awkward at all. It’s large easy to grip handle made for a super quick shave. I love the fact that it requires no shave gel which make it a perfect razor to take along when travelling. While shaving I felt like I wasn’t pressing hard enough, but the hair on the blades indicated I was doing it right. I loved how smooth it made my legs feel after shaving and I didn’t even nick myself when shaving my arm pits (which I have done on occasion with other razors). The only downfall with the razor is that it missed a few hairs around my bony knees, but perhaps those areas requires a little more practise. Thanks for the chance to try this razor!

  • #Gotitfree in exchange for my honest feedback on the product, which is also a contest entry. This razor is wonderful, a very quick assembly to get my legs looking stubble free. Very little time goes into shaving parts, without the finding and applying the shave gel. I especially like that the moisturising solid contains aloe and vitamin E to help skin irritation caused from frequent shaving. The razors are effective in removing the hairs. This little item is a time saver!

    My only issue is that it’s not ecological with the constant disposal and repurchase of the cartridge if the moisturising bar is finished.

  • #Gotitfree in exchange for my honest feedback on the product, which is also a contest entry
    I’m on holidays in the U.K. and thought it was the perfect time to test out my new Schick Intuition. We were staying at an AirBnb in London and while the bathroom was actually quite roomy, the shower stall was very tight and there were no shelves or ledges of any kind. Honestly, I’m not sure how I would have managed without the Schick Intuition as it made the process of shaving so easy in those challenging circumstances.

    I’ve only used it once so far but I would definitely use it again, especially on vacation, as it simplifies things so much – less to pack and less to juggle in an unfamiliar shower. At home, I’m not sure it will be my go-to as it’s not the most eco-friendly or cost-effective solution and I’m not sure how it will fare over time, e.g., the dullness of the blades vs the amount of shaving cream remaining. Time (and repeated use) will tell and I’m eager to find out.

  • #Gotitfree in exchange for my honest feedback on the product, which is also a contest entry.

    I was looking forward to trying the Schick Intuition Razor as I’ve never tried a razor with shaving cream built-in before. I think this would be a great option for someone travelling, although a travel size razor & mini shaving cream would probably take up less room in a bag than this huge razor. Overall, I was very disappointed with it. It’s difficult to maneuver as you don’t get as much control as with a normal razor. It also doesn’t have a pivoting head which makes getting a close shave difficult, especially around the knees. Due to the moisturizing bar, the razor head is huge so there’s no way to use it to shave the bikini & surrounding areas very well. The razer is fairly sharp, which I liked, & an extra cartridge was included in the package for a total of 2 cartridges however, I don’t see the built-in moisturizing bar lasting too long. This would get costly if needing to replace the cartridges frequently. I also didn’t like how the moisturizer isn’t visible on your body as it is with shaving cream, so it’s difficult to see where you’ve already shaved (when shaving your legs for example). I didn’t find the packaging gave much instruction either about where or how to add water. I wasn’t sure if it was to be added to a compartment inside the cartridge or razor handle or if you were just supposed to use it in the bath or shower. I still don’t really know. More detail would have been helpful. I really liked how it came with a removable cap for the cartridge when not in use so it doesn’t get wet. I wish all razors came with a removable cover for the blade.

    In summary, I won’t be buying this razer or recommending it & I won’t continue using this one. It’s definitely not for me. It’s much too big, bulky and lacks the control that a smaller razor with a pivoting head provides. But I’m grateful to have had the chance to test & review it. Thanks to This West Coast Mommy blog & Schick Canada for this opportunity.

  • I found the Schick Intuition razor hard to get used to at first, due to the large handle and razor head, as compared to a regular razor. However, I really like not needing to buy and apply shave gel! It saves time and money. You only need water to activate the moisturizer solid, which is great! The razor head nicely adjusts to the curves of your legs. I did need to use another razor for my bikini line; but depending on your grooming preferences this one could be ok for that. This razor worked great on my armpits. I like the 4 blade design, and I found the razor head was easy to switch out to a new one when needed. Nice product!

  • #Gotitfree in exchange for my honest feedback on the product, which is also a contest entry. I reviewed this razor and it’s safe to say I’m love with it!!! I really enjoy being able to shave my legs in my shower (which is a little cramped!!) The only flaw I have with this razor is that it is hard to know where I already shaved and where I did not! Overall, I would recommend anyone with a busy life to purchase this razor and use it in your daily routine!

    I have tried various Razors and have always been left feeling less than impressed. I have scars on my legs from using other Razors. I was getting to the point of wanting to go o natural (eww) as my poor legs were just not getting the treatment they should out of a razor. I figured I would try to get this razor as it was for free and I haven’t tried it before…. I am beyond happy that I was able to try this razor. I definitely won’t be going back to any of the Razors I’ve tried before I think this is my saving grace!!! I like how it feels in my hand it’s like it’s contoured to my fingers. It glides so smoothly and my god does it ever leave my legs feeling silky smooth. I wish I would of known how amazing these were a long long time ago!!!

  • I have used my Schick Shaver and LOVE IT! this is the only shaver I will get from now on. I was travelling and this was ideal since I didn’t have to pack shaving cream as well. It left my skin very soft and smooth and is so easy to use. #Gotitfree in exchange for my honest feedback on the product, which is also a contest entry.

  • I #Gotitfree in exchange for my honest feedback on the Schick Intuition Effect razor, which is also a contest entry. I am very pleased to say that I really liked my shaving experience with this razor. The conditioning bar that surrounds the blade replaced my shaving lather and saved me time and space in my shower. I found the the handle comfortable to hold, it had a nice weight to it and it gave a smooth shave. My only complaint is that it’s a tad bulky to use in places like the bikini line or arm pit area. Overall I would recommend this razor to anyone looking for a fast, smooth and hydrated shave.

  • As soon as I used the Schick Intuition, I realized that maybe for beginner shavers, this razor would not be so intimidating, but also save themselves from painful nicks. Afterwards, had to test the skin. Once dry, sure as you mentioned, my legs were soft. So not only are you saving time by not needing shave cream. But if you forget to put lotion on the Schick Intuition saves the day again. Bravo!!! #Gotitfree in exchange for my honest feedback on the product, which is also a contest entry.

  • I was pretty happy to be chosen – I mean who doesn’t like trying new stuff for free! – and I’m even happier after having tried the razor. It did a great job at shaving off all my leg hair without feeling like it was dragging across my skin. And it was easy to use on my underarm hair too. Thanks very much.

    Just like Olivia I have been run off my feet lately, I finally got to try my fancy new razor last night. To start off, the rubber on the handle made it very easy to hold and maneuver. It only took a small amount of water to get the lather started on the outer bar, I had been worried it would take some time but it was pretty much ready instantly. I did have to adjust the pressure I apply to the razor to be a little harder compared to a conventional razor, this was an easy adjustment to make. Not having to deal with a slippery can of shaving gel in the shower was awesome. I am very impressed with the closeness of my shave and the smooth feeling of my skin afterwards. They weren’t kidding when they said you won’t have to moisturize after using their product. I will most definitely be buying this product in the future.

  • #Gotitfree in exchange for my honest feedback on the product, which is also a contest entry. I did like the Schick Intuition razor. It made things quick and easy in the shower which I like. I would definitely keep using this razor. A few negatives are that the bottom portion on the moisturizing bar does dissolve quite quickly and the shave isnt quite close enough around the knee. Perfect for everyday but would probably have a different razor for those days when everything needs to look perfect.
