Schick Hydro 5 provides a safe, high-quality and light shave. Modern and reliable shaving machines, as well as multi-layered blades are made only of high-quality materials, allowing you to get maximum pleasure in the process of shaving. To prevent the occurrence of rust, chrome is applied, and to preserve the sharpness of the blade for a long time, a material called alpha-diamond is used.
Schick Hydro 5 differs from other analogues by special soldering on the blades, due to which the softest sliding is ensured, the risk of irritation is minimized. The applied gel with emollient action is activated as soon as water enters the shaver. The shaving machine Schick Hydro 5 has five blades and one trimmer. Conveniently, the German manufacturer took care of the interchangeability of the two issued lines: the 3 series Hydro and the new one.
A strip on the machine with a moisturizing gel helps to replenish the moisture level of the face skin with every shave, reduces friction. Based on the results of numerous tests, it was found that Shick Hydro serves in its functional purpose 2 times longer than a conventional razor with a similar gel.
Blades called "Ultra Glide" have a unique coating of a combination of materials that greatly facilitate shaving and preserve the original acute condition for a long time. All five blades have a close to each other location, special tapping will help get rid of frequent damage to the skin of the face. The manufacturer guarantees the thoroughness of shaving.
Appearance and flip trimmer
With a simple movement called "flip", with one finger the strip in Shick Hydro 5 folds back to release all the blades for high-quality shaving in the most inaccessible places. It can be:
- Neck areas;
- The creation of a beard or a mustache;
- Correction of whiskers.
The machine is ergonomic, which makes it convenient to hold it in your hand. The appearance of the Schick Hydro 5 is strict and at the same time stylish. Colors and smooth shape correspond to the style of hi-tech. The manufacturer skillfully picked up a universal color gamut: shades of gray metallic, dark blue, light green (inserts and a power button). The weight of the shaver is correctly balanced. Many users note a higher ergonomics, compared to the main competitor in the market - Gillette.
Shaving machine in operation
The Shick Hydro 5 shaver impresses with its unique work system called Skin Guards. This innovation implies an arrangement above each of the 5 blades of the insert of metal, which performs its main function - the restriction of the abutment of the cutting edges. This is not just a way to stand out from the competition - the irritation really decreases (according to the results of practical tests among thousands of men).
The only drawback, which users note, is a slight obstacle to tight contact with the skin. Therefore, the performance of a clean shave in a competitor Gillette ProGlide is slightly higher. The ideal result is achieved after 2 approaches. Otherwise, Schick Hydro 5 wins in all respects.
The approximate service life of one set of blades (the supplied cartridge) is 30 days. Change the moisturizing strip on the trimmer is quite easy: just simply fold the top with filler-gel.
