Prepping for a Beach Vacation: Schick Intuition

It's the beginning of May, which means the countdown to my Hawaii vacation has now begun! As with any holiday, I've been getting into prep mode by hunting down suitable vacation clothes (in this case, bathing suits and maxi dresses) and deciding what toiletries I'll need to bring (SPF is at the top of my list). Even though I'm not leaving for another two weeks, these activities are all part of my "I'm so excited I just can't wait" process which I'm sure some of you can also relate to.

Since I'm planning on spending a lot of time on the beach, one of the items that will definitely be accompanying me on my trip is my Schick Intuition Razor. Isn't the pink polka-dot handle adorable?

My favourite thing about this razor is that I don't need shaving cream or body wash to use it. This means I'll have extra room in my luggage for other vacation necessities! Instead, I simply wet the Skin Conditioning Solid and it lathers and moisturizes my skin all while giving a super close shave.

If I want to change things up, Schick also offers four different varieties of Skin Conditioning Solid refills:

Pure Nourishment refills with coconut milk and almond oil (pack of 3)
Naturals Sensitive Care refills with 100% natural aloe and vitamin E (pack of 3)
Renewing Moisture refills with pomegranate extract (pack of 3)
Advanced Moisture refills with shea butter (pack of 3)

I'm currently using the Advanced Moisture Skin Conditioning Solid because my skin is super dry but I also love the fruity pomegranate scent of the Renewing Moisture.

Refills are available at grocery, drug and mass retail outlets across Canada for approximately $11.99 (pack of 3) and $20.99 (pack of 6).The Schick Intuition Moisturizing Care Pack, which includes the same limited edition handle as mine and two Skin Moisturizing Solids, will be available June 2013 for approximately $11.99.

  1. A beach vacation sounds lovely right about now - I'm totally envious :) And although I'm not particularly fussy about my razors, I must admit that the pink handle on this one is cute!

  2. I am exactly the same as you. I get so excited about holidays that the two weeks leading up are full of admiring the clothes I have bought for it as well as planning to buy more! Hawaii sounds amazing! I am going away to the south of France this year :)

    In terms of razors, I tend to use good quality disposables but maybe I will buy one like this for the summer because it would be easier, I think.

    Great post!

    1. Glad I'm not the only one who starts prepping so early! The South of France is on my list of go-tos... bet you'll have an amazing time!

  3. The Schick intuition is my all time fave! I remember when they first introduced it, they were giving away a ton of samples - I had two full boxes of them. They're amazing, but still a little expensive in my opinion.

    Have fun on your escape! I'm looking forward to photos :)

    1. I remember when they first introduced them too! My friend had one and I was so jealous, haha.

  4. That razor sounds amazing !! love what you packing for the vacay.
