What I got Wednesdays – June 25, 2014

This week must have been a nice relief for the mail carrier, but a rather boring one for me. Though, my Home Depot order arrived, so I guess that means massive amounts of yard work this week. I did get a new phone this week (Galaxy S5)! Michael managed to break his, so I graciously offered him my old one, and upgraded.

OK, on to the fun! Crowdtap has been doing loads of Sample and Shares (and Hosted Parties, if that’s something you feel you can swing). I’ve had a few come in this week and last, and am attempting to get all the activities done. I do wish they gave you more than a week, though! Hard to cram in sharing, trying, and posting…So what came this week:


 

groomer-backA men’s Schick Hydro 5 Groomer for Michael – This thing had some interesting features, and was definitely high tech when it comes to razors. Bells and whistles everywhere! The razor is a 5 blade (hence the name) razor, that has a neat little fold down part that helps you get in some of the tighter spots, like under your nose or to help trim near side burns/facial hair you want to keep (the yellowish thing on the bottom flips down). It also takes a couple batteries and offers a little groomer for trimming.

As far as the razor goes, Michael wasn’t a huge fan. He said it was a bit bulky and awkward for regular shaving. He also said the blade was not very sharp–it was really pulling his lip when he tried to shave his upper lip. His 5 o’clock shadow comes out a bit early usually, and while it wasn’t totally out, this didn’t seem to give him the closest of shaves. The groomer was nice, unfortunately the blades weren’t as good as other Schick products we’ve both used in the past–which consequently just doesn’t justify the cost of blades in the future! He’ll probably stick with his other 5 blade razor, which is usually a regular Schick, or the store brand knock off of Schick.


 

20140625_200257Kleenex! I will never turn away a box of facial tissues, and this week was no different. I’m having this feeling this week where I can’t tell if it’s allergies or a cold coming on–and either way, I’m perfectly content keeping a box of these in every room of the house that I frequent. Crowdtap sent a few different offerings–including this box, a cube, and the wallet packs (which I love!)


 

Still a bunch of things on the way, just a slow week! What did you get this week?
