Up Close and Personal: Schick Quattro for Women Trimstyle & Skintimate Signature Scents (review and giveaway reminder)

First, the giveaway reminder: I’m partnering with Schick and Skintimate for a lovely giveaway! (Click HERE for details.) Come back and read the rest of this post when you’re done.

Done? Okay, then.

This is my birthday week; but I feel like the gifts have already arrived. I’ve had one of the most amazing weeks in one of the most amazing months in a truly amazing year! Impossible things have happened; and I’ve learned more about myself than I ever thought possible.

One of the things I’m most grateful for are the people who have crossed my path. There are those I knew for a short while, and those who have found a permanent place in my heart. There’s a saying that, “when the student is ready, the teacher appears.” I don’t think that’s ever been more true for me. I have learned incredible things from the people who are in my life. Not just about creativity and ways of living; but about openness, friendship, intimacy; and most importantly: love. I feel truly blessed and ready for another wonderful year.

It’s killing me not to insert a cheesy tie-in right here.* But I’m going to muster up a tiny bit of taste and decorum, and simply tell you that today’s beauty is brought to you by Schick and Skintimate.

Schick Quattro for Women Trimstyle Razor

Blurb: The TrimStyle razor is a great two-in-one razor: a shaving cartridge with four ultra-thin blades on one end and a waterproof, battery powered bikini trimmer on the other. The trimmer has an adjustable comb which gently guides the hair toward the trimmer blade to achieve desired hair length (a choice of three length settings), and can also be removed completely for an even closer trim.

Skintimate Signature Scents (in "Raspberry Rain")

Blurb: Add some color and fun to your shaving with your favorite Skintimate Signature Scents Moisturizing Shave Gel. These moisturizing shave preps come in six enticing fragrances that have 11 moisturizers, vitamins, an antioxidant to replenish your skin’s natural moisture and a burst of fruity freshness.

First…just go to the store and get the razor. Or at least enter my giveaway because this razor is fabulous!! I’ve been a fan of the original Quattro for Women for a long time; but the TrimStyle is nothing short of spectacular. It uses the same great blades (which give a close, nick-free shave and have those comfortable conditioning strips). In addition, the head has excellent pivoting action (best I’ve ever used), and the additional trimmer (at the other end) is convenient, easy to use and incredibly versatile. It’s a great value!!!

I also really liked the Skintimate Gel. "Raspberry Rain" had a wonderful, fresh berry fragrance, and the texture was cushiony and luxurious. It dissolved deodorant residue fairly well, and made my skin nice and soft.
