more 2 ♥ & hate

Shick Intuition Bonus razors, 4pk - under $5! Pictures, Images and Photos

Okay.. here it is.. the Shick Intuition. I admit, this isn't even my razor, I stole this pic off photobucket. I got my Shick Intuition a few months ago free in the mail. I got a few coupons with it but never intended to ever use it. My sister uses it and LOVES them. Hasn't bought another razor since.. but I never saw the point considering the price. Even the few times since I have started hounding that I could have basically gotten them free I haven't.

Of course, one day I was in a big hurry and had to shave that day. So I figured since my sister had said how awesome and time saving they are I would at least the one I got for free. Yeah.. UMMMMM LOVE AT FIRST SHAVE! For real! I couldn't believe how in love with this shaver I became after just the first use. It was like crack, crack for all of those who hate to shave... crack for those of us who hate to take the time to shave... crack for those of us who hate lather up in the shower and by the time you got yourself lathered the shower water has taken half of it away...

So I actually started lQQking for deals on them or at least the refills. There was none that week or the next few weeks coming up, but then I used it a few more times and realized I HATE THIS THING! lol! Before I started hounding I would use the same razor for months. I started hounding and getting them for free so now I use the same replacement head for probably 2 weeks. I don't shave every day in the summer, probably every other day. This summer was even less because I wasn't working and actually didn't wear shorts until almost July. Now here I am using the same head for the 3rd shave and already I can feel the blades rubbing against my skin. By the next shave it was almost not even worth it, there wasn't enough lotion around the head to really get a good shave without almost hurting myself. So basically I got 4 shaves out of it.. is it worth it?

Have you used this? Do you like it? Tips? Comments?

I will not use any other razor PERIOD! I have even gotten my mom, MIL, and aunt hooked on these. I just make sure to stock up whenever they are free.

I am with you. I hate this razor. I hate it so much that I wrote to Schick and told them that and they sent me coupons for a free razor up to I think $8. That covers just about every razor out there that I would even consider. Maybe take that route and see if you get any Q's.

I am not a big fan of the razor. I am a Gillette Venus girl for awhile now.

If its totally free, I'd use it, but I'm not a big fan. Just like you, it was ok at first but doesn't have a long life. My sister loves them, so I just give them to her. I much prefer the Gilette Venus razors and there are deals on those pretty frequently.

omg I LOVE THEM! They are my ultimate favorite!!!! Yeah they don't last long but I don't care - I hate shaving cream! :)

I absolutely LOVE this razor! I haven't used anything else since discovering it a few years ago, I love it that much.

I do agree, it doesn't last as long as I'd like but I don't care because it's the first razor that I've used that actually moisturizes my severely winter-dry skin! And, I don't have to lather up before hand.

OMG I was thinking the same thing. I used it once and loved it. I went
out and bought about 5 more. The more I used it the less I liked it. It got used up in the middle and the soap on the sides ended up just falling off. If they are free
or close to I will buy them but otherwise I dont think they hold up.

I agree w/ you about these! It was great the first time, but I was totally disappointed after that. And silly me tried these way before I discovered couponing so I paid FULL PRICE for it - imagine !? LOL!

I also love the Gillette Venus. My fave is the Embrace line. I have NEVER found Q's for them, but the Fusion Q's usually work, luckily :-)

I first bought this razor in college and it was a girls dream...at first. I loved it because I just carried it and no cream to the shower and I didnt have to worry with too much in the shared shower. BUT then I used it a couple of times and suddenly started getting razor burn from the suds not being evenly distributed. HORRIBLE. thanks for your review.

I LOVE these razors! But only use them if they are cheap or Free. Otherwise it is any cheap or free razor for me!

I love these things but they just cost too much. If I can get a free one or one CHEAP I buy them. Mine usually last a lot longer than yours did though. Are you storing it in the shower? You might try storing it in a dry place.

Another thought for you. They say that storing bar soap open for a few weeks before using it will dry it out a little and make it last longer when you use it. Maybe someone needs to try this with the shavers!

I won't use any other razor. I stock up when they put the gift sets/holiday sets on clearance at Target/Walmart. The regular cost of the gift set is usually less than price of the razor alone and you get a razor and 4-5 blades plus other items. Clearance makes it even a better deal. I also buy when it is free or almost so throughout the year.
