A Review: Schick Intuition F.A.B.
Shaving your legs has become such a habitual task that you probably haven’t given much thought about your razor. Most likely you found one many years ago that seemed just fine and you’ve been using it ever since. At least, I know this was the case for me, but now I have found a razor that I’m basically in love with (if that’s possible).
Have you seen the commercial for the razor that shaves backwards AND FORWARDS? When I saw it I was very skeptical. The thought of shaving my legs in the forward direction just seemed like a nightmare/crime scene waiting to happen. I mean I could only imagine all the cuts I would give my legs and ain’t nobody got time for that!
My skepticism was wrong-there are many things I love about this razor: its affordable ($7.99 at Target), easy to handle, moisturizing, and safe. My favorite part…drum roll please…I didn’t have to shave again for almost a week!
So how do I shave forward?
There is two rows of blades on this razor, one row facing down and the other facing up (which allows for shaving forward). If you can think of how you normally shave, pulling your razor back, but instead of picking it up to shave another area, you can just keep your razor where it is and push back down. It’s that easy, and it didn’t take any longer than my normal shave time.
After I used this razor my legs were so smooth, I think this is a combination of the moisturizing strips and the razor blades that are facing both up and down. Being able to shave forward made sure that I got all of the hairs and gave it one extra sweep.
FUN FACT: F.A.B. stands for forward and backward
(isn’t that so clever?!)
Schick Intuition f.a.b. is safe and easy
So we’ve all cut ourselves shaving (I know I’m not the only one), usually in those sensitive and hard to reach areas like your knees or ankles. I usually shave around those areas extra careful and slower so I won’t cut my skin. When I used this razor, I didn’t have to worry about that. It glides so smooth with the moisturizing strips and the forward motion helps you get in those hard to reach areas.
Tip: I did notice that the shave was a lot better when I used less shaving cream, I think it helped the razor reach better contact with my legs.
No hair for 5 days
Guys, this razor blew my mind when I didn’t have to shave again for 5 days. Usually the hair on my calves and shin area starts to grow back 2 days after a shave. Usually the very next day my legs are already feeling less smooth and I thought it was just the type of hair I had because I had this experience for years.
When I used the Schick Intuition f.a.b. razor, my legs were smooth for 3 days, feeling like I had freshly shaved. I even had my fiancé feel my legs and he couldn’t believe I had shaved 3 days ago. On day 4, I noticed my legs weren’t as smooth but there was no visible hair until day 5. This may vary for you so I’m not promising this razor will keep your legs hair free for 5 days, this was just my experience and I know this was a huge difference than before.
Before using this razor, it was frustrating shaving my legs honestly because I felt like the next day they were already feeling rough again. I actually threw my old razor away immediately after I used the Schick Intuition f.a.b. razor.
