Schick Intuition Pure Nourishment Razor Review

So recently I received the Schick Intuition Pure Nourishment Razor from a Feisty Frugal and Fabulous Contest.  I always wanted to try these razors, but previously never bought them because I could get other razors for much cheaper, especially with sales and coupons.  I haven't seen any coupons for the Schick Intuition, however that doesn't mean they're not available.

In the package I received the Intuition handle, two razors cartridges, a suction cup holder and a guard for the razor.

According to Walmart.ca, the various razors from the Intuition line are $10.12 each and the 3pk replacement cartridges are $11.46 and the 6pk cartridges are $20.98.  I believe they are also available at Costco, but I haven't come across them.

There are different colour handles and different scents.  The handles are interchangeable with the various Skin Conditioning Solids.  This allows you to try out different Skin Conditioning Solids to find the right one for you.  In the package that I received, the scent is called Coconut Milk and Almond Oil.  I can be rather sensitive to some scents, so I was very pleased that this one had a light scent.

Schick's website states "Intuition is the only razor that lathers and moisturizes during shaving. No need for shave gel, soap or body wash. Just add water."

I have tried and used a number of different razors.  I've used regular disposable razors and honestly I just can't stand them.  I find that even on the very first shave they're dull and they scrape, scratch and give me razor burn no matter how much shave gel I use.  After many attempts with many different brands, I moved on to the razors with cartridges.  My favourite razor for the longest time was actually the Gillette Mach3, then the Gillette Fusion ProGlide.  Yes, I am fully aware these are "male" razors, however they gave me the most comfortable, nick free shaves.  I also tried the "men's" Schick Hydro, and I didn't really care for it.  I have since tried the Schick  Hydro Silk razor for women and recently I've been using that as my favourite razor.

My first impression of the Schick Intuition, was that the handle is so large that it just had to be uncomfortable to hold and shave.  However, the razor as a whole is very light and surprisingly comfortable in my hands.  I always shave in the shower, so I did not have to change my routine.  I made sure to wet the solid around the razor and it softened nicely, but did not melt away easily.  I was a little worried at first using this on my underarms, however it glided smoothly and easily and got rid of the very short growth with no problems.  

After using it on my underarms, I made very quick work of my legs.  Not having to take that extra step of adding shaving cream certainly made shaving much quicker.  I had no problems with the razor causing bumps or nicks and I felt very comfortable while using it.  I don't have very thick body hair and just a quick shave was enough to make my legs smooth.

For you ladies that like to either keep your bikini area trimmed or smooth and might be curious, I actually did use it on my bikini area.  It had been a while since I'd trimmed that area and I was rather concerned that the solid would not moisturize enough, however it did work okay.  Obviously it's a rather large razor, so I was very careful.  I didn't shave completely bare with the first attempt because I'm prone to razor burn in that area, especially if I haven't trimmed in a while.  I did not have any bumps or razor burn, and the area did not feel dry or sensitive afterwards.

Overall, I feel that the razor on a whole works quite well.  My skin felt soft and smooth afterwards and I have no problems at all.  I have since used the razor a few times, and the solid is slowly disappearing.  I have used it at total of 5 times now, including using it on my bikini area, and there is still some solid left.  I do have to note that it does seem to be getting to the point where it is not as comfortable or smooth to shave as the previous shaves.  It appears that the front part of the solid wears out faster than the back, at least that was my experience.  Maybe I was putting too much pressure on the front and not distributing the pressure evenly enough, I might get one, maybe two more quick shaves out of this solid before I have to move on to the next.

I also have to say that while I liked the suction cup at first, I find it dings your solid on the sides and unless I'm mistaken there is no way to cover up the blade with the cover while it's in the holder.  I don't any small children that can cut themselves, but others might unless they put it far out of reach.  I also had an unwelcome surprise this morning with the whole thing falling off my shower wall randomly this morning.  I'm on a bus route, so maybe the vibrations of the buses and cars going by daily made it pop off, but either way it was not fun to wake up to a loud bang right of deep sleep.  It was kind of funny though, as the cartridge popped out of the handle and I had to do a hunt for it in between my product bottles and such.  A quick search for it was done before I went back to bed and I didn't find it.  I ended up finding it later when I was actually more awake, but I think I'll just put the cover on it next time.

So, if you're still with me, I would recommend this product for those that want a quick, easy and gentle shave if you don't mind spending the extra money.  I usually get my shaving cream for $2.00 or less and right now I have a small but comfortable stockpile of it.  One can also lasts a really, really long time.  I also have a bunch of Schick Hydro Silk razors I got on sale and used a coupon, so I am set for those for some time.  I also don't really count, but I'm sure I get more than 7 shaves out of one cartridge for the Hydro Silk.  Perhaps if they came out with some coupons, or if you could get them even cheaper in bulk at Costco I might be more inclined, but for me my frugal nature outweighs the maybe 2 or 3 minutes extra I'd spend in the shower using shaving cream.

Let me know what you think and if you've tried the Intuition razor before.  What's your favourite razor and why?

Krisda Splash Review

Hey CMM&S fans!  Recently I was given the opportunity to review Krisda Splash thanks to the wonderful Dana at Coupon Nannie.  Krisda is a North American company that makes and distributes sweeteners made out of Stevia.  You can visit their Facebook Page to check them out or visit their Website for detailed information about their company and products.

A couple years ago I was really big into getting in shape and losing weight.  This went great for a while and I actually lost 45lbs.  It was tough, but I did it.  Unfortunately a couple years later, and I've gained pretty much all if it back.  This is frustrating and heartbreaking, but I have no one but myself to blame for not keeping up with my exercise and watching my calorie intake.

I love sugar, especially in my tea in the morning and nothing I've found tastes quite the same.  I've tried Splenda, SteviaSweet, Equal and others, but nothing has replaced real sugar for me.  Krisda has a regular tabletop sweetner I'd love to try, but for today I have their juice crystals to try out. 

When I was on my eating better and exercise kick, I bought tons of the Crystal Light juice crystals, because I wanted to drink more water, but I wanted to have something with flavour that was easy to take with me and I could put in my own water bottle and go and not worry about all the extra plastic I was using with bottled flavoured waters. 

One thing that really stands out for me with the Krisda Splash I received is the crystals in the Field Berry package I got are white granules like regular sugar. One of the problems I had with Crystal Light was that the crystals didn't completely dissolve even after much stirring or shaking.  Crystal Light is also coloured and I found that if I didn't clean my water bottle really well after using them, the little crystals would stick to the container, first of all discolouring it and then also making everything I put in the bottle taste like Crystal Light for days after.  All of the crystals from Krisda Splash dissolved completely and there is no residue settled on the bottom of my glass and the water is clear.  I haven't put it in a bottle yet, but I am thinking that because it dissolves so well, this wouldn't be an issue with Krisda Splash.

One Krisda Splash packet is enough to flavour 600ml of water.  You can choose to use more or less water depending on your tastes, but I filled a tall glass with about 600ml of water and the one package was definitely enough to flavour the water.  I was really happy with the taste of it.  It's fruity, flavourful, but isn't overpowering at all.  I can definitely taste the raspberry flavour.

One thing I have to note with all of the juice crystals I've tried is the aftertaste.  After drinking the water, I'm always left with a little bit of a bitter aftertaste, and I get the dry-mouth feeling.  So while I like the original flavour, I'm not too partial to it afterwards because it makes me feel like I need to drink more water to get that taste out of my mouth and to get rid of that dry feeling.  Krisda Splash was unfortunately no exception to this, but it was not so unpleasant that I wouldn't use it again.

Overall, I did enjoy the taste of Krisda Splash and I'd definitely be willing to purchase this as an alternative to Crystal Light as Krisda is made with Stevia and Crystal Light is made with Aspertame.  I am trying to cut out as many products as I can that are made with Aspertame.


Ingredients in the Krisda Splash I received are:

Medicinal Ingredients: Vitamin A 200 MCG RAE, Vitamin C 12 MG ,Vitamin E 2.7 MG AT. Non-Medicinal Ingredients: Inulin, Erythritol, Stevia leaf extract, Natural fruit extract and Natural flavour.

At this time there is no nutritional information on the website, however, Coupon Nannie states the following for the details regarding the product:

Every Delicious Krisda Splash flavor adds life to water naturally without calories and artificial ingredients
  • All Natural
  • Zero Calories
  • Sugar Free
  • No artificial sweeteners, flavours, colors or preservatives
  • Made with real fruit extract
  • Sweetened with premium Krisda stevia sweetener
  • Enhanced with vitamins A, C, & E
  • Kosher, Vegan, GMO Free
You can also visit their Website to see where you can purchase their products.  They are available at my local Walmart on Regent, so I will definitely have to check them out.
