The Schick Intuition Advanced Moisture razor for women, about $12 for the starter kit.
I really appreciate that some razors, like the Schick Intuition Advanced Moisture and the Gillette Venus & Olay razor, now come with handy holders that attach to your shower wall with a suction cup. It makes getting them out of your kids’ reach so easy. After Miss Q cut herself quite deeply as a young toddler with her Daddy’s razor, we make sure that they’re always up high now so this is a very welcome addition to the starter kit.
If it’s the summer months and you’re shaving every day or every other day, you can expect a refill to last about a month. This is pretty good overall, even if the refills will set you back $3 or $4 depending on where you buy them and how many are in a pack.
There’s this sort of wire “cage” over the blades (just take a look at the photo at the top of this post), which I suspect would help prevent those more serious cuts when razors are discovered by toddlers. But since I’m not about to borrow a toddler or ask my kids to run their fingers against the grain on the Schick Intuition, I can’t really be sure. It does seem to help the blades run over my skin without nicking it, though.
You absolutely, 100 per cent do not need shaving creams or gels of any kind. This is an all-in-one razor.
The shave is very good, very close and – yes – moist. Must be those new Moisture Ribbons! (Honestly…where do they come up with these names?) When I use this razor, I don’t notice my legs get that really dry, itchy feeling that you often get after shaving. I like that. Because feeling like you have alligator scales is never cool.
The Schick Intuition Advanced Moisture razor is pink. And y’all know how much I love me some pink.
Like all razors that have more than two blades and offer a bell or a whistle, this one isn’t cheap. For $12, you get the handle, the holder, a cap and two razor refills. I suppose that’s better than some other brands, but it’s definitely going to give you sticker shock if you’re still using the bare-bones disposable razors that are $1 apiece. (But then you’re also probably buying shaving cream and using a heap of moisturizer afterwards, too…so think through all the math before you decide to stick with your current brand.)
It “dry-shaves” better than the Gillette Venus & Olay razor but not nearly as well as the Gillette Venus Sensitive. You know, those times that you’re on the run and want to throw on a tank top and just shave the few hairs that have surfaced without having to do the whole shower parade? That’s a dry-shave.
It’s got a pretty big footprint and it feels big in my child-sized hands. Not that it’s, like, Paul Bunion-sized or anything, but compared to thinner razors, it just feels a bit clunky.
