CHI Touch 2 Dryer

 

Not my hair (I wish!). This is just a stock photo.I don't have pictures of me in my teen years to show off my hair.

Not my hair (I wish!). This is just a stock photo.I don’t have pictures of me in my teen years to show off my hair.

My hair used to by my crowning glory. I had really long, super thick, wavy hair when I was younger. My hair dresser referred to it as a lion’s mane.

Sadly, years of hair coloring, perms (back in the 80’s), hair products, hair dryers, stress, age and other things have taken it’s toll on my once beautiful hair. It’s not as thick and lush as it used to be. It’s still think and wavy, but no where close to the way it used to be.

I am careful about the products I use in my hair. I don’t use hair products that often (mousse, gel…) – maybe the occasional squirt of hair spray if I’m having a bad hair day. I also don’t use damaging products like flat irons and curlers. I do use a hair dryer.

Normally when I wash my hair I let it sit in a towel for a bit, then I let it air dry for a little longer. I can’t let it completely air dry because it gets really frizzy and looks dry. To combat that I usually scrunch my hair using a hair dryer. It helps to make my waves look a bit better and less frizzy.

CHI Touch 2

A while ago I was sent to review a new hair dryer called the CHI Touch 2. This an update version of the CHI Touch with new features. The CHI Touch 2 is lighter with a new sleek compact design and slip-resistant finish and can even be transformed into a hands free device.

This is not your ordinary hair dryer. This dryer is high tech and allows you to customize the perfect setting for you or the look you are going for.

For the first time, you can tailor your blowout according to the hair’s texture; something no other dryer provides. As a result, you will achieve optimal shine, increased volume and bounce plus eliminate frizz. Its NEW 2.24 inch touch screen control and unique speedometer design provides this customization with intelligent settings that control the temperature, ions, and speed. The built-in 3D ion generation system emits over 3x times more ionic output that you can adjust with just a touch of the finger. This allows you to increase the ionic output for thick coarse hair while normal to fine hair needs less ions. Of course, The CHI Touch 2 would not be complete without CHI ceramic technology to produce moist heat and a consistent temperature.

This is by far the most high tech dryer I have ever had the pleasure to use.

The CHI Touch 2 has a touch screen that allows you to play with the different settings to find what is best for your hair. You can control how fast the air blows, the temperature and the ions. You can even set it to blow cold air.

CHI 2 1

CHI 2 2

I wasn’t sure what settings worked best for me so each time I used it I would play around with the settings until I found the perfect temperature, speed and ion setting for my hair.

I’m not totally sure what ions are but I believe it has something to do with how quickly your hair dries. I also think it has something to do with removing static from your hair. My hair has had a lot of static in it lately. It has improved greatly since using the CHI Touch 2.

To adjust the hair dryer to suit your needs simply press on which setting you want to adjust (speed, temp, ions). Next, using your finger, move the “arm” on the dial to the desired location. The the left is less, to the right is more.

The hair dryer does come with attachments but I have yet to use them.

This dryer is lighter than my previous one. I also find it to be not as noisy as my previous one, even on a high speed setting.

For me, since using this dryer, my hair has less frizzies than normal. I don’t know if it’s because of the ions or something else. I also use it a lot less than my previous dryer, so it appears to be drying my hair a lot quicker. I also find that it cools off after use a lot quicker than other dryers too.

So far I can’t think of a negative thing to say about this dryer. The only thing that might be considered a “negative” for some is the price. The CHI Touch 2 retails for around $199.99. I think that is because this is a salon quality hair dryer – something you would find in high end salons. For me it’s not something I could budget for (sadly) but if I had the money I would certainly buy it. I am very pleased with my experience with this dryer. It’s by far the best hair dryer I have ever used.

If you would like to learn more please visit the manufacturer’s site, www.Farouk.com.

The CHI Touch 2 can be purchased at fine salons and online retailers like ulta.com and loxabeauty.com.

Unique Fragrances you can “mix and match” from DefineMe

 

perfumes

I love scents. I also love fragrances.

I really enjoy scenting my home to make it smell clean and inviting. With five cats and a dog I always worry about my home smelling like pets (it doesn’t – our neighbors have confirmed that). I also like to scent my home because I am a firm believer that scents can really effect your over all mood.

I also really enjoy fragrances. I like wearing perfume. I don’t really have a signature scent. I change my perfume depending on my mood and the occasion. If I’m just going to work I like to wear something light and airy (I work with kids so I don’t need to be overly done up). If I’m going out with my husband on a date night I like to smell sexy. If I am attending a meeting or blogger event I want a scent that make me feel strong and confident.

Not long ago I was sent some perfumes from a brand called DefineMe. DefineMe has several unique fragrances. Each of the five fragrances in the collection is named after a different woman. The scent exemplifies their unique personality traits.

audry 2

AudreyIs empowered by love and believes it is always the answer.

Notes: Jasmine, peony, rose and sandalwood.

clara 2

ClaraAttracts abundance by being grateful for the good in her life.

Notes: Lilac, violet, hibiscus, lily and musk.

harper 2

Harper – Walks through life fearlessly blazing her own path.

Notes: Grapefruit, bergamot, honeysuckle and amber. This fragrance can be worn by both men and women.

payton 2

PaytonExemplifies strength and passion by living her dreams to the fullest.

Notes: Orange blossom, peach, clove buds and musk. This fragrance can be worn by both women and men.

sofia_isabel 2

Sofia IsabelleIs a free spirit who embraces life with confidence and grace.

Notes: Mandarin, black currant, jasmine and sugar.

I was super excited to try out these scents. I was especially looking forward to trying out the scent Clara because it has Lilac in it and I LOVE Lilac (it’s my favorite flower). This scent doesn’t disappoint. It’s light and airy with a beautiful floral scent. It reminds me of spring when the flowers are in full bloom. It’s a perfect “anywhere” scent that makes me feel happy and playful.

I honestly thought I would wear Clara all the time, but then I got hooked on the other scents too.

With Audrey you can really smell the sandalwood and jasmine. It’s a more sophisticated scent. This scent makes me feel confident. It’s something I would wear to a business meeting or something along those lines.

Harper, to me, has an exotic, intoxicating scent. I can’t pinpoint what the scent reminds me of or what “notes” I smell the most. It’s a sexy scent. It can be worn by both men and women. I agree with that. It’s  unisex scent. If you asked me if it was a female’s perfume or a man’s cologne I couldn’t tell you which it would be. This scent seems to change the most as you wear it.

I think Sophia Isabelle is a very fun fragrance. When I smell it I have visions of attending an amusement park with my cousins when we were little and all the great times we had camping. It evokes a sense of nostalgia in me. It brings me back to my youth.

Payton reminds me of the beach which is really odd because none of the notes would be beach related. It makes me think of sailboats and beach bonfires. How odd is that how a fragrance can evoke images in your mind’s eye, even if the scent has nothing to do with them.

Payton is also a unisex fragrance. It’s very light but could work well with either a man or a woman.

Perfume

There is something very unique about DefineMe fragrances which you can’t do with other fragrances – you an layer them. You can mix and match any of these fragrances and wear them together to create a whole new scent. In fact the DefineMe website lists two of their favorite fragrance blends.

Almost every day I try out a different combination of the fragrances. I have all five scents so I mix and match them all. Some days it’s just two scents, other times it’s 3 or even 4. It’s fun to see what combinations I can come up with. I have come up with several really nice scent “recipes.” Sadly I never think to write these things down so I can’t recreate them again. But that is OK. It’s fun to try a different one each day. Since all the fragrances work well together you don’t have to worry about combining any that might stink together.

*Fragrance Tip: Don’t rub your wrists together because it takes the top notes off and leaves the base notes! Just dab the fragrance on an let it dry for a second or two. 

I love them! They are my #1 go to fragrance every day.

Here are a few more interesting tidbits about DefineMe’s fragrance oils;

  • They are blended with fractionated coconut oil, not Dipropylene Glycol (a chemical additive). The coconut oil is naturally sourced & vegan.
  • The fragrances have a roller ball for easy application.
  • DefineMe fragrances last 3 times longer than most fragrances (I agree – they do last a long time).
  • All of the scents are blendable with the other scents.
  • The fragrances are made in the U.S.A.

Each fragrance retails for $36 which is a decent price considering other perfumes/fragrances are in the $50+ range.

You can also purchase a sampler kit of all five fragrances in small vials for $15. I think that is a wonderful way to try them all out, blend them and see if you can create your own signature scent.

If you would like to learn more please visit www.DefineMeFragrance.com. You can also find the brand on social media. All the links are found at the bottom of their website.

6 DIY Hair Treatments to Detox, Nourish & Strengthen

 

Red Hair

Did you know that many wonderful hair treatments can be made with ingredients found in your home?

 

When I was younger my mom used to put raw egg in my hair (it did a wonderful job). She also put mayonaise in my hair and even rinse it with a solution of vinegar and water.

Check out these easy to make DIY hair care products you can make at home. Chance are most ingredients you already have on hand in your fridge or pantry.

“Heading to the salon or your local beauty supply store is fine and good, but your fridge and pantry can provide a host of delectable ingredients that will nourish and rejuvenate your hair, as well,” explains Wendy Rose Gould beauty expert for hair tutorial and advice site www.Latest-Hairstyles.com. “From mashed bananas to blended carrots to strawberries, fenugreek seeds and beyond, chances are you have many of these ingredients at your immediate disposal. Snack on some, of course, but also put them atop your head as DIY hair treatments that make for glorious, glorious hair.”

DIY Hair Treatment Recipe Instructions:

1

Carrot Detox

Either finely shred your carrot by hand, or put it in a blender to break it down. Combine with two tablespoons of coconut oil and mix well, then apply to dry hair. Let it set for 10 to 15 minutes, then rinse in the sink (to keep carrots out of your bathtub drain). Condition and style per normal.

2

Strawberry Banana Hair Detox

Chop your four strawberries into small pieces and then either mash them by hand or use a blender to puree. Combine with one mashed banana and two tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil. Apply to shampooed hair and let sit for 10 to 15 minutes. Shampoo, condition, and style per normal.

3

Almond and Avocado Treatment

Crush or blend your almonds, then cut your avocado in half and remove the pit. Mash the almonds into the avocado and then combine with olive oil, mixing well until you have a smooth consistency. Let the mixture set for 20 minutes before applying to allow the ingredients to fuse, then apply to shampooed hair and let set for 10 to 15 minutes before shampooing.

4

Egg Yolk Mask

Separate your egg yolk from the white and beat the yolk. Slowly add the milk, mixing as you do, then add the honey. Apply the mixture to your hair, starting at the ends and working your way up. Let the mask set for 15 minutes, then rinse with cool water. Hot water can make the egg cook, so stick with cooler water.

5

Fenugreek Strengthener

Blend your fenugreek seeds into a powder, then combine with yogurt to make a paste. Apply to dry hair and allow it to set for 30 minutes before rinsing and shampooing. Fenugreek is rich in proteins and vitamins, which strengthens hair.

6

Blackseed Oil Conditioner

Maximize the effects of a normal conditioner by adding equal parts coconut oil, blackseed oil, and your normal conditioner. Mix well, then saturate hair and throw on a shower cap. Blackseed oil makes hair fuller and stronger while coconut oil adds shine.

Surprise Box

Before I became a blogger I used to love to get samples sent to me in the mail. I belonged to a few “freebie” groups that would share opportunities to receive samples from various brands. It was fun. I enjoyed it. I loved going to my mailbox to find unexpected surprises in the mail.

I didn’t want the freebies just for the sake of getting something for free (although free is always nice). It was more so for the opportunity to try out new products or products I might not otherwise know about.

As a blogger I do receive a lot of samples of new products – which is awesome. Still… it’s nice to still get samples in the mail.

PINCHme box

Have you ever heard of the site PINCHme? It’s a site that lets you pick out which available samples you would like to try. Best of all it’s FREE!

Using PINCHme is easy. Simply sign up and tell PINCHme a little about yourself, that way they know what kinds of samples they should get. Then on “Sample Day” you log on to the site, pick out the samples you want to try and PINCHme will send them to you. All PINCHme asks is that you visit the site once you had a chance to try out the samples and provide the brands with your feedback on their products. Love it or hate it, the brands want to hear from YOU.

Some people think of samples as itty bitty versions of a larger product. While that is usually the case you’ll be surprised by some of the samples from PINCHme. Some even include valuable money saving coupons.

I do recommend that you visit the site ASAP on sample day because samples can go quickly – especially on popular products.

 

Check out some of the samples I received from PINCHme.

Sample Packets

Summer's Eve

Not pictured was a box of Playtex Sports tampons and pads combo. My daughter needed them (sorry… too much personal information). It was great that I had them on hand, thanks to PINCHme because it saved me an immediate trip to the store.

The Summer’s Even sample has 32 clothes in it. I’m not sure how many clothes are in a full size product, but 32 clothes is a lot.

I love the Kraft Parmesan Cheese. I never realized it was available in seasoned flavors. It is so good! We’ve used it a few times already on pasta and on breaded chicken cutlets. I’ll be buying a larger version from the store soon. I’ll also check to see if they offer other seasoned flavors.

I’ve heard of Berocca and I have always been curious about it. I was going to order some off Amazon a couple of months ago but I was reluctant to because I didn’t want to spend all that money on a product I’ve never tired in hopes that it would “perk me up” a bit in the late morning/early afternoon when I seem the drag. I’ve only tried it twice. I like the flavor. I’m not sure yet if it’s working, but I know now it won’t be a waste of money if I purchase it from Amazon. If anything it’s giving me vitamins and adding a bit of flavor to the water I drink every day.

My daughter quickly grabbed the nail polish. She’s obsessed with nail polish. She was thrilled to see the bottle. It’s a great color too (much better in person – the photo did not capture it’s true color).

PINCHme Samples

I love trying out new products. I also like having “mini” versions of products to keep on hand for when I travel. Once I try out the products I’ll tuck them inside my carry on case for the next time I have some place to travel to. Or I give them to my kids or my husband to keep in their bags or at work. For example, my husband has excessively dry hands so I gave him the hand lotion samples. Not only can he try them out and provide me with feedback on his thoughts (so I can share it with PINCHme), he also has products he can put in his glove compartment, computer bag or leave at his desk at work. By the way… he really likes the Skin Fix Hand Cream.

As you can see from some of my samples I also received coupons in addition to the sample.

If you would like to check out what new samples PINCHme has for you visit PINCHme.com and sign up. New samples will be available on Monday, July 14, 2015 at 12:00 noon (EST). Once you sign up be sure to head back to the site around that time to pick up some great new samples to try out. Don’t delay! Samples get snatched up quickly and you wouldn’t want to miss out. Even if you do, don’t worry, new samples will be available soon.

You can also check them out on social media. All of the links are found at the bottom of their website.

Have you tried PINCHme? If so, what do you think about it?

Travel Beauty Essentials from ARQUISTE and Tammy Fender Holistic Skin Care

 

Luggage

With this being the summer season many of us find ourselves doing a lot of traveling. Most of it is for “play” (vacation) and for some it’s for work related reasons.

I have no travel plans this summer except for the occasional day trip with my family – something that wouldn’t require packaging a suitcase.

I do travel from time to time for blog reasons (press junkets, events…).

With my first press trip I packed everything I could think of resulting in luggage that was bursting at the seams and too heavy to lug around the airport. The more I travel the less I tend to take with me.

I’m always worried about leaving behind something I might need. I realized that if I needed anything chances are there was a way to get it where I was.

Something I do need to pack is my facial cleanser and moisturizer. That is something I NEED. I can’t go without properly washing and moisturizing my face for several days. No way!

My normal beauty care routine products are not “travel friendly.” They are too big for TSA standards and for trying to stuff in the luggage. When I travel I need to find alternate beauty products I can use.

Tammy Fender has an interesting travel kit worth checking out. It contains everything you need to maintain your beauty routine when you are on the go. Best of all the containers are TSA friendly and are housed neatly inside a jewel-box case which you can repurpose when you are done with the products.

Tammy Fender developed her custom-blended formulations to purify, nourish, balance, restore and replenish the skin based on the healing traditions of holistic medicine. Now you can experience the integrated holistic effects of Tammy’s line on-the-go with her customized Tammy Fender Travel Kit. Tailored to your particular skin type and offering physical, emotional and spiritual benefits, the Tammy Fender Travel Kit allows you to bring your everyday skincare routine on the road. Each kit contains travel size versions of your choice of cleanser, tonic or floral water, moisturizer, and serum.

I received one of these travel kits to try out for myself. I was sent the Anti-Aging Kit to review.

Tammy Fender Anti Aging Travel Kit

The Anti-Aging Kit comes with the following travel sized products.

Cleansing Milk

Physical benefits: Combines the soothing and antiseptic properties of lavender with the astringent benefits of grapefruit to effectively cleanse and decongest the skin while promoting the circulation of chi, leaving the complexion soft and radiant from the inside out

Emotional & Spiritual benefits: Lightness to the spirit and clarity to the mind.

I was surprised how well this cleaned my face. It’s a liquid and I thought it would just surface clean but it really did leave my skin feeling clean as if I just stepped out of the shower. It smells really nice too.

Bulgarian Rose Water 

Physical benefits: Strengthens and tones the delicate tissues of the skin, calms inflammation and tightens the pores all while restoring the flow of vital chi, leaving the complexion supple and revitalized.

Emotional & Spiritual benefits: Centers one’s emotional being and reveals love and beauty.

Refreshing. Feels great on the skin. Tones the skin and helps make pours less visible.

Quintessential Serum 

Physical Benefits: Fights visible signs of aging; forms a barrier on the skin to protect it from losing moisture; strengthens collagen; regenerates skin cells; maintains skin elasticity; reduces wrinkles; soothes and maintains the integrity of skin; and protects skin from UV rays.

Emotional & Spiritual Benefits: Calms and centers the mind, heals depression and mental fatigue, and strengthens one’s inner energy, enabling love to radiate from the inside out.

I was worried about putting an oil-like product on my face. I recommend using it sparingly. A little bit goes a long way. It does take a bit to absorb (it’s not instant) and it does make your face look shiny. When you wake up in the morning the shine is gone and its fully absorbed. It leaves my skin feeling very soft and it’s help to get rid of some dry patches on my skin too.

Tammy_Fender_Holistic_Skin_Care-company_logo

Intensive Repair Balm 

Physical Benefits: Originally created for Tammy’s post-op clientele, the formula repairs tissue damage and assists in the healing of surgical and acne scars; strengthens weakened capillaries and fades under-eye circles; aids in reducing tissue pain, redness of the skin and discoloration; stimulates new cell growth, increases elasticity and tightens the connective tissue; and regulates the flow of chi as well as the flow of blood, helping to dissolve clots.

Emotional & Spiritual Benefits: Restores and renews the soul.

I wasn’t overly keen about this product. It seemed to take forever to absorb into my skin. It made my skin feel greasy. I tried it for about a week then stopped using it. It didn’t really work for me.

Epi-Peel

Physical benefits: Removes the accumulation of dead surface cells, refines the pores and eliminates impurities as it brightens and polishes the skin with a blend of rosemary, lavender, spearmint, kaolin clay, and micro-granules; increases the flow of nutrients and oxygen into the skin.

Emotional & Spiritual benefits: Enlivens the spirit and empowers the mind; stimulates clarity and flashes of intuition.

I found this to be a bit too harsh on my skin. I used it gentley but it left my face looking very red and blotchy. Even my husband commented “What is wrong with your face?” so I stopped using it.

Bulgarian Lavender Body Oil 

Physical benefits: nourishes, protects and increases the flow of oxygen to the cells via a blend of Bulgarian lavender as well as some of nature’s finest nutrient oils.

Emotional & Spiritual benefits: evokes equanimity.

This smells SO GOOD! It’s a nice oil can use just about anywhere on your body. It absorbs fairly quickly and leaves your skin feeling soft and hydrated. I used this every time I stepped out of the shower. Sadly my bottle has been used up. I would buy more of this in a heartbeat if I could.

This lovely travel set sells for $150 at TammyFender.com. There you can find other products and full size versions of these products.

You can also find the brand on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Links are found on the bottom their website.

When I’m traveling I also like to pack perfume. I like small vials or roll ons so that they pass the TSA screening.

I like perfume. I wear perfume pretty much every day – even on the weekends. I like to mix it up a bit and wear a different perfume all the time, that way I don’t become “nose blind” to it. I also like to match the scent to my mood.

ARQUISTE fragrances

The ARQUISTE brand offers two lovely travel sets each containing lovely perfumes that you could layer with each other or use each scent individually.

ARQUISTE Florals Travel Set:

Ideal for the person who prefers light and elegant fragrances, these four scents are crafted with the finest floral extracts. Fleur de Louis, containing notes of Orange Blosson, Florentine Orrise and Jasmine transports the wearer to the Isle of Pheasants on the French-Spanish boarder in 1660. Infanta en Flor features bright Orange Flower Water, rich Spanish Leather and Immortelle. Experience the passion of an Aztec festival in the 1400s with the floral scents of Flor y Canto. Finally, Boutonnière no. 7 is a lavish scent with notes of Italian Mandarin and Bergamot. This set retails for $70.

ARQUISTE Citrus and Woods Travel Set:

Experience the luscious Date Fruit in a warm Mediterranean night with L’Etrog. Then transport to an early morning in the misty fields of an Italian farm with L’Etrog Acqua with notes of Sicilian Lemon and Italian Mandarin. Sample London’s finest cocktails with the Art Deco architects of 1930 with The Architect’s Club and its invigorating notes of Juniper Berry Oil and Amber. Complete your journey with Aleksandr, a fragrance inspired by the frosty St. Petersburg, Russia in January of 1837. This set retails for $80.

I received ARQUISTE Citrus and Woods Travel Set to review.

CW-IMAGE

I chose this set because I would love to experience the world. I have a lot of locations around the world that are part of my “Bucket List.” This set allows me to mentally travel to another country and another time.

L’Etrog – This is a fresh, clean scent. There is a touch of a floral note to it, but I can’t pinpoint what it reminds me of. I can see why the scent would remind you of a warm Mediterranean night. I have never been to the Mediterranean (it’s on my Bucket List), but this scent does have a “beachy-ness” to it.

 L’Etrog Acqua – This scent is a bit too strong for my taste. It reminds me more of a manly scent – like a cologne a man would wear. It’s not a bad scent, but it’s my least favorite out of the set.

Anima Dulcis – I find this scent very alluring. It reminds me of the incense my aunt and uncle used to burn when I was younger and would spend summers with them. It’s musky and reminds me of burning wood (for lack of a better description). I really like it. I think both a woman and man could wear this scent.

The Architect’s Club – This scent reminds me of paper. I know it’s weird, but that is what I think of when I smell it – a large package of loose leaf paper. Maybe a touch of an old book too.

Aleksandr – If you are looking for a softer scent, this is a good choice. It reminds me of baby powder combined with a fresh breeze coming from the garden. It’s not overly floral, but it does have some notes of flowers to it. This is a good every day scent.

The set comes with a small booklet that explains the scents a bit further.

You get a good size bottle (with a spray pump) with this set and it should last a long time.

If you would like to learn more about ARQUISTE fragrances visit ARQUISTE.com. There you can purchase either of the travel stets or larger versions of each of these (and other) fragrances. The brand can also be found on Instgram, Facebook and Twitter. The links are found on the bottom right of their website.

“Make It Epic” with Schick Hydro and get two FREE movie tickets

 

Shave

When you have children, life is full of milestones – your child’s first word, first time they walk and the first day of school. Right now we’re dealing with a bunch of milestones with our daughter – first job, first boyfriend, graduating high school, senior prom and she just got her driver’s license.

Thankfully our son still has some milestones left to reach.

Two milestones that were hard for me to deal with was when he hit puberty and his voice went from squeaky to Barry White practically over night. The other was when he started to shave. I still find it weird that he shaves. I never expected my son to tell me “I need new razors.” How is it that my baby boy shaves? Sigh…

Both of my men shave – my husband and our son. Interestingly they both require different razors. My son can use any razor I pick up for him. My husband needs one for more sensitive skin.

Schick Xtreme

Schick Hydro is a brand of razors I know that both my husband and son can use (Schick Hydro has a razor for sensitive skin).

Schick Hydro razors are no ordinary razors. They contain a special gel reservoir that activates when wet. The gel is released on the skin making it feel hydrated. It also helps to reduce razor burn and helps the razor glide gently across the skin helping to minimize knicks and cuts. As a women I know how important that is for my legs. I want my husband and my son to experience the same benefits when shaving their face.

My son hates to shave. He finds it time consuming. With Schick Hydro’s special hydrating gel the shaving process is quicker and easier. He tends to shave more when the shaving experience is more enjoyable for him. As a result I get to see more of my son’s “baby face.” He may be growing up but he still has that adorable face he had when he was younger – when it’s free from facial hair.

As for my husband, he looks at least 10 years younger when he shaves. Because he has sensitive skin he hates to shave.

Schick Hydro 5

I bought my husband from Shop Rite the Schick Hydro5 Sensitive Skin razor. It’s been dermatologist tested to ensure it can handle sensitive skin. Just like the other Hydro razors, the Hydro5 Sensitive Skin razor hydrates the skin with use. The hydrating gel contains aloe and Vitamin E and helps to lubricate the skin which reduces irritation and redness and provides all around comfort when shaving.

I am NOT a fan of facial hair. I like my husband clean shaven too. I don’t like to kiss mustaches or beards. Plus my husband does look younger when he’s clean shaven.

I purchase our Schick Hydro razors at Shop Rite.
