Beards and ‘staches is the new man-trend.  Legend has it, every time you shave a beard, you can hear a hipster scream.  True story.

Love the look (although I much prefer my man with less facial hair), but it is important to tame the fluffy beast with a good quality razor every now and then.  

My husband travels a lot and much prefers disposable razors as he can’t always bring his heavy duty one with him everywhere.  He tried the new Schick Hydro® 5 disposable razor and shared his thoughts on here.

The new Schick Hydro® 5 features include:

  • UPGRADED Hydrating Gel Reservoir now delivers 40% less friction than lube strips, plus it features improved gel delivery, with a lubricant surface area increase of 80%.
  • NEW improved gel formula now hydrates your skin for up to 1 hour after you shave.
  • 5 Ultra Glide Blades with breakthrough skin guards help control skin flow to reduce friction by doubling points of contact to smooth out your skin as you shave.
  • NEW larger, redesigned guard bar for increased skin stretch, resulting in a smoother shave
  • NEW reduced blade spans minimize skin bulge to help smooth the flow of skin across the blades.

Here’s what my husband had to say on

This is an excellent and very sharp razor blade specially for a disposable kind. I have experienced using 3 and 4 blade types and found this one gave me a smoother and more precise shave due to the extra blade and the hydrating gel that helps it glide smoother on my skin. The flip and trim feature allows for lining up side burns easily and helped me get those hard to reach places like near my nostrils. I highly recommend this razor blade and how well it performs at this price point.

  4. Having grown up in North America, I naturally started with a disposable razor. I switched to electric several years ago for the convenience. However, in the last year I made the switch to a more traditional shaving method using a safety razor and whipped up my own shaving cream/soap. I am interest in testing and reviewing the new Schick Hydro 5 and seeing how it stacks up against my safety razor.
