One of my favorite ingredients in the women’s Post-Shave Moisturizer is the always-fun-to-say Abyssinian oil. This exotic-sounding oil is truly exotic (it’s derived from the crambe abyssinica, an oilseed plant native to eastern Africa), but it’s also an exciting skin care ingredient.
Abyssinian oil contains a high level of long-chain monounsaturated fatty acids that contribute to its unique moisturizing properties. This is not your average ho-hum oil. Abyssinian oil zaps wrinkles and dryness, but does so without a heavy or greasy feel.
Teamed up with superstar moisturizers shea butter and Argan oil, the Post-Shave Moisturizer can go the distance with dry winter skin (tested successfully throughout an NYC winter) and sunburned skin alike (tested successfully on a Mexican vacation). And while the lotion definitely knows how to treat just-shaved legs, it also delivers when used on hands, arms and any other body part that requires superior moisturizing.

You have only yourself to blame.
It was only a few years ago when Schick was trying to get shavers to trade up to their great new technology in the form of their Hydro-5 Razor Blade. (Pick up your refills for $28, here!). Now they are saying consumers can get the same great technology in their disposable razors at 30% lower price.
According to Schick, “Like the original Schick Hydro, the new Schick Hydro 5 Disposables hydrate the skin throughout each shave. Our philosophy in developing the Schick Hydro 5 razors was that consumers using a disposable deserve the same great technology and skin care benefits as those using a refillable razor.” Yawn.
We still think Dorco Razor Blades (they are the manufacturer behind Dollar Shave Club’s Private Label blades) are the best price performer. You can buy a year’s worth for less than $30 and they rival the Gillette Sensor any day of the week.
