SHELTON, Conn., March 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Schick announced today the launch of the Schick Hydro® 5 Groomer, the first ever 4-in-1 high performance facial hair styling tool designed to simplify, enhance and personalize grooming routines for men. It shaves, trims, edges and hydrates throughout each shave. Backed by the technology behind Schick's best shave for your skin, this new tool provides the effortless shave experience expected from the brand and addresses personalized grooming and skincare needs for the growing segment of men who enjoy experimenting with different facial hair styles, but don't want to fuss with multiple attachments.
"We know that not all skin is the same and that men take pride in finding products that address their specific grooming needs and deliver maximum comfort," said Matt Rader, Director of Marketing for Men's Razors & Blades at Energizer Personal Care. "There is an art to being a guy, and no one grooming routine is the same, especially now. Men don't have to shave every morning before going to work anymore. You'd think that might scare a razor brand, but we think, just because you want to sport a little facial hair, you shouldn't be deprived of a great shave."
Schick Hydro 5 Groomer: An All-in-One Simple Tool for Any Grooming Style
With the rising popularity of facial hair as a modern accessory, many men look for specialized tools to maintain their personal style. The new Schick Hydro 5 Groomer is the first 4-in-1 tool of its kind and features the innovations of the Schick Hydro 5 razor on one end which hydrates throughout each shave and an adjustable built-in trimmer on the other, delivering a simplified shave routine that doesn't involve attachments that could get lost or broken.
Boasting advanced Schick Hydro technology, the groomer:
- Shaves using Ultra Glide® blades and patented skin guards that help reduce friction while smoothing the surface of the skin and doubling the points of contact with the blades, for less irritation;
- Trims with an adjustable power trimmer featuring a wide comb and sharp blade for customized style and improved cutting efficiency;
- Hydrates with a Gel Reservoir that lasts up to twice as long as ordinary lubricating strips, continues to add lubrication to the skin with every stroke and hydrates throughout each shave;
- Edges with a flip trimmer that exposes all five blades, allowing men to trim tight and hard to reach spaces with ease.
The all-in-one design of the Groomer makes it simple and convenient for men to maintain their looks, allowing for optimal trimming performance without multiple attachments. The Schick Hydro 5 Groomer has a sleek handle that requires only one AAA Lithium battery, and its blades are compatible with Schick Hydro 5 and Schick Hydro 5 Sensitive refill cartridges.
