Y'all, let get real here - I've been shaving my legs for as long as I can remember. Ever since I overheard a friends in middle school talk about how they started shaving, I begged my mother to buy me a razor to start the process too and never looked back. That being said, after doing a particular grooming habit for over two decades now, one gets into a routine - I always use a good-quality shaving cream, a great razer and shave in a upwards fashion - never down, and certainly never both at the same time. This all changed when I was introduced to the new Schick Intuition f.a.b.; a razor where you can shave safely using both upwards and downwards motions. I know it sounds crazy, but stay with me here.
The razor itself is pretty cool to see. There are two rows of blades; the top ones shave up and the bottom ones shave down. There is also Advanced Moisture Gel on the outer layer of the razor itself to help it move smoothly along your skin. The result is a really close shave that's really comfortable - no irritation or sensitivities - you never even need to lift the razor from your skin!
Although it took a while to break the shaving routine that I've had for the past hundred years, I can honestly say that I'm converted. I feel as though the closer shave has actually extended how long I can go without shaving and the whole process is just easy.
What do you guys think? Have you been shaving for years and years like me? Have you ever thought about shaving both frontwards and backwards? Let me know!
