This is one of the few purchases that I haven't planned. We were browsing at Sam's Club, SO wanted a new razor, he offered to get me one too & the Intuition looked cool.
I like that I don't need shaving cream for this. Less bottles in the shower is always a good thing. It gives me a pretty good, close shave.
The only reason I even thought to review this is because, for some reason, I cut myself more with this razor than any others. Usually around knobby areas like ankles or knees. I think its because it doesn't have horizontal flex like other razors do. It's not a deal breaker, but it is something I've noticed.
Because I bought this at Sam's I have enough refills to probably last me a year. (NOTE: the cream bar does go down so its a factor as well as razor dullness. I have fine, blonde hair on my legs so I don't have to shave them more than 1x/wk. I probably switch out my blade monthly. Make sure to leave the razor in a spot in the shower where it won't get wet, otherwise the cream bar will go down a lot faster.) Would I buy more refills at full-price? Ehhhh..... IDK. Maybe. I do like that I don't need additional shaving cream so I might.
I can see how some women would like this, no shaving cream, right? But I have sensitive skin and this basically ripped apart my skin, I still have scars from it creating so many razor bumps. Also didn't give me a close shave and I had to frequently had to put my razor under the water because it clogged up with hairs. What also kind of irritated me was my razor was still good, but my bar around it was gone, so what's the point in that? The razor handle was too cheap for me.
This is the only razor I'll use forever. Been using it for nearly 10 years after getting it in a new student box in college. The refills are PRICEY and I'm cheap as hell, but this is a must. Cannot live without. Plus, I think it all evens out because you don't need shaving cream! I shave my WHOLE arms, along with my legs, armpits, and sometimes bikini and a cartridge lasts me 3-5 showers. I so rarely get nicks and shaving goes by in a flash, which is important to me because I'm super impatient.
Omg I agree with the comment below how could anyone rate this low? It is a bit pricey but it is well worth it I swear. If you are in a hurry you don't even need to put shaving cream as it is already built in the razor. Wet the area and go. Only downfall I don't like about this product is that I could use more razors on the side. If your like me and have erm a lot of hair on the pubic area you are going to need more than 1 more refill that comes with it. It has an attachment holder you can plug onto your shower wall. Glides really easy along the skin and my bikini line was shaved off within one minute. I wasn't able to do my legs because the razors got lower after awhile. Blame my hair monster otherwise I give this product a -A. No nicks no blood no problem.
I dont understand how people do not love this razor!
Its so effortlessly easy to shave, it already has the soap so all you have to do is wet your legs or whatever parts your'e shaving.
It shaves really well, it leaves your legs feeling smooth and clean.
I've tried different types of razors, shaving creams, wax, etc.
Those sucked, and ever since i found this razor i am never going back!!
I got the pack that comes with 2 bar soaps, then the razor plus the shower holder and its pink, for 10 bucks, i thought it was a good price
Out of nowhere, i got a package in the mail from shick, they sent me a free intuition razor for my b-day and it was blue :)
Love love love this razor!
Took twice as long to shave my legs than with cream and normal razor.
Took me ages to remove packaging even with the arrows telling me where to open - just didn't work.
Hd to press much harder than gently, and,as I'm not young any more, don't have lots of hair on legs, anyway.
and it's expensive
LOVE IT! Going to keep on buying this shaver. ITS AMAZING! After shaving with a regular shaver I always saw regrowth and nicks straight after shaving but with the schick intuition shaver my underarms are clear as! looooooooooooooooove this product, highly recommend!
Are you kidding? the lather portion of this razor is so thick, you can't possibly get a close shave. It also wears unevenly, so you will have patches when you shave.
Perfect shaver for lazy girls like me ! If you're in a hurry, this shaver is what you need. Just wet the area you're going to shave then just run it across. The soap bar is attached to the shaver so you need not apply anything which conventional shavers requires you to apply the shaving cream first. Using this for years, I never suffer from any cuts. & I really like that it comes with a wall holder to hold your shaver when its not in use.
I don't understand the negative reviews if this at all. It's been my go-to razor for years now. It is a little more expensive than some, but you don't need any shave cam or foam. I've never had a problem getting a close shave, and I don't press hard or anything. I just run it lightly up my legs against the hair growth.
Close shave, easy, super convienent, fits well in my hand, has never irritated my skin
Slightly pricey, if you don't store it right the bar around the razor will go gross and kinda fall apart.
