We’re all friends here, right? Right.
So, I can be honest. The very first time I laid eyes on a Schick Intuition Razor, I thought it was the silliest thing I had ever seen. Incredibly bulky and decidedly unsexy, I thought to myself, “Who uses these things?”
Fast forward to my honeymoon. In a hurry to get to the airport, I mistakenly tossed a can of shaving gel in with my carry-on luggage. Of course, with the no liquids/gels rule, it was unceremoniously thrown out by the security agent. As I looked in dismay at my brand new bottle being cast aside, the agent said – “You should have bought one of those razors with the soap thingies around it so you don’t have to pack an extra can of shaving stuff.”
Of course, that’s when I realized that the Intuition razor really did have a place in society: for travel! Imagine, never having to pack a separate shaving gel!
So, for our very next trip, I ran out and bought a Schick Intuition razor. And, after I used it for the first time, I was hooked. So hooked, I realized that I wanted the feeling of oh-so-smooth legs all the time, and I never wanted to see another can of shaving gel on my bathtub ledge again. Hence, my love affair with the Intuition razor began.
Introducing the NEW Schick Intuition Pure Nourishment razor.
“Coconut milk and almond oil have long been lauded for their skin-benefiting qualities. Now, you can enjoy the power of these ingredients with the new Schick Intuition Pure Nourishment razor. Made for dry skin, the Schick Intuition Pure Nourishment razor lathers, shaves and moisturizes during shaving—all in one easy step, with no need for shave gel, soap or body wash. Infused with coconut milk and almond oil, the Pure Nourishment Skin Conditioning Solid leaves dry skin feeling noticeably soft, and its four blades and pivoting head follow your contours for a close shave. The new Schick Intuition Pure Nourishment razor and refills will be available starting in February 2013 at grocery, drug and mass retail outlets across Canada for approximately $11.99.”
Oh GOD, yes please! I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this product. I have the worst alligator skin known to mankind: rough, dry and scaly skin that needs constant attention, especially in winter. Most of my go-to products are enriched with almond oil, so this was a welcome addition.
Now in terms of a review, whatever I say is just going to come off as gushy-gooey because I freaking love this razor. So here’s the Coles Notes version:
1. Shaving with the Intuition Pure Nourishment razor literally feels like you’re running a bar of soap all over your legs. Seriously. You do not feel the razor at all; with a few swipes, you’re left with smooth, gloriously supple skin.
2. No more rusted can of shaving cream in the corner of your bathtub. The Intuition stores away easily with an enclosed wall-mount that you can affix to your shower wall.
3. The pivoting head bends and bobs to hug every inch of your skin. It’s never been easier to get a super-close shave without sacrificing comfort.
1. The Skin Conditioning Solid will continue to wear down as long as the razor is wet, so be sure to cap it and hang the razor as soon as you’re finished shaving. The wall-mount is there for a reason; be sure to use it!
2. The razor does an exceptionally good job of pivoting around curves, but because you don’t actually feel the razor against your skin – just a smooth, gliding motion – it’s hard to know if you’ve managed to cover every inch of skin. (Especially if you’re like me and wear glasses – ergo, you shower blind.)
1. Just one thing. I loathe that I waited so long to try Intuition razors! Bad Lena! The razor will forever change your shaving ritual. You’ll spend less time shaving, your skin will feel incredibly smooth, and you’ll always have the perfect travel companion. It’s sheer genius, I tell you.

I’d definitely like to try this! My skin has been so dry this winter I’m hoping this will help after a good shave!
Thanks for applying, Donna! Will be sending over the final list today, hope you part of the 50!
Thanks! Filled out the form and submitted!
Oh man…I might have to check these out!
I first used them when they did this crazy viral word of mouth this a few years back. You got a code, and they would send you one, and then a few more to share with your friends. Great promotion of the product really! Anyway, they are a tad bulky, but they do the job. Good to hear they came out with another one to the line :)
I remember those PIN codes! That’s probably around the time I was thinking, what is the DEAL with this??? The new razor is amazing, and I’m so happy they’re giving readers a chance to try it!
Filled it out! LOVE these razors for my armpits and touching up my legs (I tend to miss hairs if I use it to shave when I actually have significant leg hair!). Been hearing about this new version lately and would love to try it out! :)
This razor is great on pits, because it glides so smoothly. No pain!
These razors are awesome. Only way I can shave in the shower without injuring myself as can’t see enough to shave regularly with my glasses off.
We’re in the same boat! Of course, I’ve been showering blind for most of my life, so I know the feeling well!
I would love to try this. Signed up!
I hope I get to try, I just signed up!!!
Thanks for the opportunity!
Thanks for signing up, melanie, emma and Sandra!
I to have the worst dry alligator skin..does this really help??? I hope so,I filled everything out,hope I get picked.
It really does help, Jennifer. Normally after I shave my legs, my skin is itchy for days. By the third or fourth day I sometimes have tears in my eyes because my dry, sensitive skin is on fire. This does NOT happen with the Intuition!
I would love to try this. Looks interesting.
Thanks for your interest, Lena! (Love your name)
would love to try this
Forms filled out Love the first line of this type so looking forward to this one…
Thanks Rosey and Tammy!

Congrats on the fantastic quick response you received from all the gals! Looks like I am a wee bit too late to take you up on that sweet offer? Thanks for an honest review too.
You’re welcome, Tooth Fairy. Sit tight; more sampling opportunities on the way!
Hahaha so you can totally feel my pain!
Congrats to all the winners! Darn work got in the way :( Thanks for the review and I had to laugh when I read about the the shaving gel on the bathtub. I hate that too and I hate that it leaves a ring. This razor sounds amazing and I will definitely have to pick one up.
Right?? The cans ALL say “rust proof” – and yet they all rust at the bottom. Shaking my head!
Missed out on this one! Congrats to all who got in on in. I love my original pink Schick – I’m sure I would love this new one even more.
Ah, zut! Next time NT – lots of more sampling opportunities on the way!
I have been using shick intuition for years but they never had that bracket to hang them from, now I like that will be picking one up when I see then in the store
Great! I agree that it really needs the bracket – happy you love the razors so much Debbie!
I usually use men’s disposable razors because I feel like if thy are good enough for their face they are good enough for my legs ect..haha..they work well for me but these look pretty amazing. Thinking I’ll have to try them out!
I definitely think you should try them out, Mandy!
Never knew about this product. I will have to purchase it for my next trip! Thanks Lena!
You’re welcome Myra! It’s a MUST when travelling!
great review. i missed on the review opp you put up…well, the early bird gets the worm, they say! i will be sure to look for these in stores.
Definitely worth a purchase, Sarah – you’ll adore the razor.
I will have to try one :)
I got my shick intuition in the mail (thanks to you) and I love it. It leaves the skin very soft and no razor burn! It’s a winner.
Wow. Call me super lazy, but I don’t shave a lot during the winter. LAZY!!!! I tried my new razor today. I love it. Sorry for my confession, but Schick got it out of me! Great razor ladies.
Thanks so much for the feedback Sharon!
I love this Razor. No razor burn and I agree with Sharon, definately a winter razor for sure. I also thought that it would be a great razor to take along camping or to the cottage. You need minimal water and you won’t have to cart along bulky expensive shaving creams. I give this razor, two arms in the air. (it shaved that close)
Awesome! Thanks Patti!
