Bic Soleil Savvy Review plus Coupon Giveaway

The Bic Soleil (pronounced “soh-lay”) Savvy is the newest razor with refillable cartridges for women from Bic. These are priced at $6.97 at Walmart and $7.99 at CVS (wait for a good sale).

Shaving Tips provided by Bic:

Shave at Night

Shaving removes dead skin cells and the superficial layer of skin. While this process is healthy, it reduces your skin’s defenses for a couple of hours. Shaving at night gives your skin time to recover its strength and suppleness to resist irritation.

Shave Clean Skin

To help prevent infection and bumps, make sure your skin is perfectly clean before you shave. Apply hot water beforehand or shave after showering. Warm humidity increases skin elasticity and softens your hair, making it easier to shave.

Apply Shaving Cream or Gel

Use shaving cream or gel with Aloe Vera when shaving — it’s gentler on your skin than regular soap and can help lift hair. Lather the cream or gel, then leave it on for two minutes prior to shaving. Once your hair is softened, the razor will glide more easily over skin.

Use a Sharp Blade

Change your blades regularly, especially if you have sensitive skin. On sensitive areas like your bikini line and underarms, shaving with a dull blade can result in red spots.

Comes with 4 cartridges

3 blades with Vitamin E strip

Lightweight with rubber grips

After a test armpit shave (no pic of that, gross), I was pleasantly surprised by how close the shave was. The head pivoted nicely as promised.

However, I must point out a little concern.

I previously purchased a razor just like this in August called the Bic Soleil Shimmer, only it had 4 blades. In fact, I am currently using it as my main razor.

Top is Savvy, bottom is Shimmer

Left is Shimmer, right is Savvy

You can see that the only differences are that the Savvy is a tad shorter, has more grip on the sides, and is more translucent. Looking at the Bic website, the Shimmer is no longer listed as one of their promoted products.

As I generally enjoy a 4 blade razor, I will continue using my Shimmer until I am out of cartridges.

Then I will enjoy the Savvy.

  1. I like this brand! These razors are what I get if I’m feeling too cheap for Venus refills, but still want a good razor, or if I’m going on vacation or a overnight trip–I have a tendency to leave things when I travel :/
