Comparison: Schick Showdown

The Schick Quattro For Women Razor ($9.19) comes with 2 refill cartridges, has 2 conditioning strips enriched with Vitamin E and Aloe, a compact pivoting head to follow all your contours, 4 ultra-thin blades for a close, smooth shave, and a sleek metal handle for precise control that features a comfortable rubber grip.

This razor got around my knees and ankles beautifully, without missing any spots or cutting me. For someone who usually just uses her fiancee's razor to shave, it seems girly but functional. I'll keep it around. Note: If you get those annoying little red bumps when you shave, just exfoliate your legs beforehand.

A couple weeks ago, when I was at David's Bridal, buying my wedding dress, I was given a Schick Intuition Plus ($8.99.) The razor with 3 blades is surrounded by a Cucumber Melon skin conditioning solid. It claims to lather, shave and provide refreshing moisture in one easy step.

While it seems like a nice idea to be able to lather and shave at the same time, it's not really the same. The smell is fine, but I don't like the bulkiness and the fact that it's harder to get areas like knees.

Winner: Schick Quattro hands down.

I've tried both too, the intuition is a good concept idea, but it is bulky, and the moisturizing shave bar melts away way too fast. the Quattro is easier to maneuver with.
