The New & Improved Schick Hydro 5 Disposable Razor (Giveaway)

When it comes to grooming, I find the men are often left out of the scenario. The fact is men shave and take care of their appearance, daily. Some men shave twice a day as their facial hair grows faster than they like. I admit to not really thinking much about the grooming process a man went through until I lived with one. Seeing the little hairs in the sink day after day, made me quickly take notice to how often shaving was happening. Even having my razor go missing from the shower, stopping me from shaving my legs made me very aware of the frequency.  I then made sure we were always well stocked for razors for both the men and women in my home. Since we each have different skin and different needs, men need their own razors.

Fast forward to the present and I now have three men in my home, shaving and taking up the mirror. A spouse and two teen sons make planning my time in the bathroom a bit of a headache, but it is life. All I can do is plan accordingly, and make sure they have what they need to get the job done right, in a timely fashion. Since I do most of the shopping in the house it is me who buys the grooming products for the men in my life. I do not care about paying a bit more either if needed knowing the quality is there. They have had a few nicks previously from cheap razors over the years and now buy nothing but quality.

Recently I was sent out a package of Schick Hydro 5 Disposable razors for men for my husband to try out. He was two days between shaves so we had lots of stubble.  For some reason the only grey hair he has is in his beard and we often joke how much younger he would look if he just shaved it all off.


Schick Hydro 5 Disposable men’s Razor

Skin Guards:

The Schick Hydro® 5 disposable razor features 5 Ultra Glide blades with Skin Guards helping to reduce friction between the skin and cartridge for less irritation. Reduced blade spans minimize skin bulge and the new larger guardbar helps to increase skin stretch providing a close shave.

Hydration Station:

The Schick Hydro® 5 disposable incorporates the most innovative features of Schick Hydro® – including the unique, new and improved, Hydrating Gel Reservoir*. This reduces friction that tends to cause redness and irritation by using water-activated gel to hydrate the skin throughout each shave.


Great for on-the-go:

The Hydro® 5 disposable razors deliver the signature Schick Hydro® technology so men can get the same great quality shave on the go.

Flip Trimmer:

With a simple flip of the thumb, the Schick Hydro® 5 Gel Reservoir flips back so all five blades help to trim, versus the single edging blades of some other razors. The Flip Trimmer offers a unique design for those hard-to-trim places – no other razor has this convenient, easily accessible trimmer.


*Hydrates throughout each shave.


Our review

My husband used the shaving cream and his first Schick Hydro® 5 disposable razor today. He shaved his cheeks and shaped his beard. He said he got a real close shave leaving his skin smooth and not irritated. Getting up close to areas that needed to be shaped was easy to do and the glide was seamless. The flip trimmer made it easy to trim around his mustache and  he experienced no nicks or redness like he has with other disposable razors int he past. It looks as though he will be able to use this disposable razor a few more times before having to discard it.

He normally shaves daily but often as time gets away from us may skip a day or two. The course uneven stubble often causes bumps and makes shaving a chore. Having sensitive skin he is cautious when using new razors to avoid issues. He was extremely pleased with these razors and said he loved the shave it gave him.

I was very impressed with the clean smooth shave as well! The price of the package is really good for what you get. I will be buying more of these in the future for sure.
