Fictionary: Arrayzor

Fictionary is a column showcasing beauty-related words that don’t exist, but should.


I don’t know if this trait is one of the many I inherited from Barry Katz (who has most things in triplicate, to my mother’s dismay) but I am hosting a veritable razor party in my shower and so many are invited. I like an arrayzor, if you will. 


But they all serve different purposes, kind of like Aiden’s multiple deodorants. 



I hesitate to admit I have the exact same amount of razors in rotation, but only 4 are pictured at the moment. I use the Intuition for quick shave jobs–either when I’m pressed for time or find I missed a spot somewhere. The Schick Quattro for Women Trimstyle is my go-to for trimming or when I need a longer-lasting shave.

But the new Hydro Silk iteration is my favorite, in a new chic Caribbean blue with its own travel case, which is key. I’m so tired of finding “floater” razor heads in my travel bag, only to find I’ve packed two or three more heads, not realizing there are several lurking out of sight and are waterlogged and barely functional. This handy little toothbrush cap-like scenario locks it up for me, to quote the sage John Beck of Wedding Crashers.


Schick Hydro Silk Razor is $10 at mass market retailers nationwide.
