Bzzagent Schick Hydro Silk Razor Review & Giveaway

I received the new Silk Hydro razor from BzzAgent to try and review. I was a little skeptical about a woman’s razor, because embarrassing they just don’t cut it for me. I tend to use a men’s razor either from Gilette or Schick. So I was pleasantly surprised when I tried this and it worked so well.

The Claim:

“Schick Hydro Silk®razor, you go beyond an incredibly close shave to actually care for your skin.” With water-activated moisturizing serum that hydrates skin for up to two hours after shaving. Built for a woman with the 5 curve sensing blades that are irritation free.

The Schick Hydro Silk razor was last year’s most awarded new razor based on Beauty Awards from top magazines such as Cosmo.

What I thought:

Pros:

  • 5 blades — that are sharp and work just as well as a mens razor 
  • Body contouring head –to get around all the curves of your body (it got the back of my knees perfectly!)
  • Skin guard– protects against irritation (this was a fist pump moment for me, no redness or itching after shaving)
  • Moisturizing serum — keeps hydration for up to 2 hours
  • Great handle that felt like a shoe gel insert

Cons:

  • The shower holder suction cup doesn’t hold up– but I’ve never really had any of them ever hold up.
  • Best when done in small strokes, it just doesn’t glide or shave as closely when doing long strokes.Would I recommend this? Yes!

I got a close shave that didn’t burn, redden, or cut up my skin. Available easily at all major retailers for the same price or less than your current razor. So give it a try!

I’m giving away 4 coupons for the Schick Hydro Razor so you guys can give it a try. There will be two winners who get 2 $5 off coupons (one for you and a friend).

Holiday Time- Love with Food Box

The Holiday box of Love with Food arrived a few days ago but the holiday preparations have been keeping me busy. I really liked the holiday box, just because there were so many yummy goodies to try. Have a look.

Image

What the box contained:

1) Bag of 479 Sea Salt Caramel

2) Nunes Farms Honey Cinnamon Almonds

3) Nikkis Gingerbread Boy Cookie

4) 4 Taffy Town’s Salt Water Taffy Candy- this is pretty amazing stuff!

5) Big Chocolate Dipper’s Belgin Milk Chocolate Dipped Nutter Butter Cookie (whew that was a mouthful).

6) Kara Chocolates’s Candy Cane Milk Chocolate Truffles- I have to say I loved these, they melt right in your mouth. I would end up comparing the quality of the chocolates to Lindt.

7) Madecasse Chocolate’s 2 mini chocolates

8) Hill’s Brothers Mocha Mint Cappuccino Mix

9) Inserts for Ecomom ($10 credit for first time users), Craft Coffee’s 10% off (code LOVEFOOD), Cloud Mom, and Virgin Wines

I am pretty impressed by this box, it had the box completely filled with great samples. I was considering canceling my subscription after next month to cut down on costs, but now I’m re-considering. This month Love with Food also donated 2 meals for every box to NY & NJ Food Banks for Hurricane Sandy Relief.

Moms: I have two Ecomom credits available from Love with Food that I have no need for. The first two people to reply (subscribed users) can have them! 

What do you think of this box? Have any subscription boxes that you love?

Meijer’s Mounted Picture Review — Bzzagent

I was lucky enough to get selected for Bzzagent’s Meijer Mounted Picture campaign. I finally got around to getting it done a few days ago.

Meijer’s photo center has kiosk’s set up where you can bring in your memory card or use your iphone to create your photo projects or prints. It was ridiculously easy and had features to alter your picture by correcting red eye, color contrast, auto lighting, and adding text.

The claim was that it would be ready within a hour, so I had allotted myself that time to get my groceries. The guy at the counter got my order as soon as I put it in, he looked up at me and went “give me 10 mins” I’ll have this ready for me. I was shocked. True to his word, he actually had a MOUNTED PICTURE perfectly ready in less than 10 minutes.

I had my graduation picture with my college roommate mounted because I had never gotten around to it. Take a look:

ImageImageThe second one despite my best tries I couldn’t get the flash to go away (its soo glossy!). The mounted pictures have a silver finish on the side and the back is good to use to hang on the wall or insert and twist in the handle (?) to put on a surface.

While I got to try this for free the regular price for this size is $8.69. I love the cost of this, its better than most online deals you would find.

I’ve been using online shops to print my photo prints, projects, and gifts but I will def. be going to Meijer from now.  They offer a variety of photo projects such as printed photos, mounted pictures, canvas photos, customized photo books, photo calendars, and of course holiday cards.

I love getting photo gifts for almost any holiday, its always such a big hit. Everyone loves to know you put in some thought and got them a personalized gift.
