I have always been a loyal Venus razor user. Ever since I started shaving my legs, I can't think of any other brand of razors I would purchase because Venus had a great reputation. However, I had recently purchased a value pack of shaving cream, and with that value pack came a free Schick Hydro Silk Razor. I absolutely love purchasing things in value packs because things like this happen, where you get to try out a product for free.
I didn't think there would be much of a difference while trying out a new razor, because a razor is just razor to me. However, after shaving with the Schick Hydro Silk razor a few times, there is a bit of a difference between the Schick and Venus razor.
The process of shaving your legs with the Schick razor is exactly the same as the Venus. Both razors glides smoothly against your skin and gets the job done. However, I noticed that I was able to shave with the Schick Hydro Silk razor without using any shaving cream (making it a quicker process). Even without the shaving cream, I was still able to get a close shave and my legs felt moisturized.
I always find myself having to use shaving cream with my Venus razor, which isn't a big deal because I don't mind having to use shaving cream. However, I think the Schick Hydro Silk razor will now be my go to traveling razor because I can skip packing the shaving cream.
Overall, I love both the Schick and Venus razors. However, if you want that added boost of moisture, I would recommend the Schick Hydro Silk.
