Fortunately for all of us, Schick is following the Gillette Fusion ProGlide in working to improve a man’s shaving experience without trying to once again one-up the competition with yet another blade. I think we can all agree five is plenty.
The Hydro 5 Power Select comes with three speed settings so that you can customize the power of the razor’s vibrations. The equipped hydrating gel reservoir will continuously supply aloe vera and vitamin E to your face with a lubrication strip that’s said to last twice as long as other strips. Skin guards on each blade help to smooth out your skin and reduce irritation. The hidden flip trimmer will help you tidy up those lines, and a battery life indicator will make sure you don’t get stuck in the middle of your shave with no power.
Don’t worry, we’re sure Gillette will be back next year to counter.
