Summer Vacation Essentials featuring the Schick Intuition Razor

Disclaimer: This post is sponsored by Schick. All opinions are my own.
When I go travelling, one of the last things I want to bring is a can of shaving gel so that's why the Schick Intuition Razor is one of my absolute favorite summer vacation essentials. With its nourishing conditioning bar, the Intuition Razor not only provides a close shave, it also moisturizes and soothes the skin so you don't need to use shaving gels or body lotions.
Now that summer is almost in full swing, I want to share with you some of my summer vacation essentials and also remind y'all of the ongoing Schick Shop Free for A Year giveaway.
From now on until the end of September, the purchase of any Schick products marked with the Shop Free For A Year sticker comes with a code that gives you the chance to win a $15,000 prepaid Visa gift card! There are also over 2,450 additional prizes to be won!

Clay Mask (Sephora Mud Mask Purifying & Mattifying $24 CAD):
When summer rolls around, my skin tends to get oilier and breakouts are even more likely to occur. So, I like to bring a clay mask with me whenever I go on vacation to help clear up my pores and draw out excess sebum. A really, really great mask I've tried recently is the Sephora Mud Mask. This one dries very quickly so the wait time is not too long; it also has orange peel bits inside that helps gently exfoliate the skin.

Sunscreen for the Body (Kiehl's Sun Protector Lotion Spray for Body SPF 30 $32 CAD):
Sun protection is a must to avoid skin damage, skin cancer, and premature aging. My go-to body sunscreen right now is the Kiehl's Sun Protector Lotion Spray. I like that it has a nozzle spray and spreads easily on the skin. The finish is non-greasy, so it doesn't feel icky and sticky when you go about your day.
My Summer Vacation Essentials
Because I have very oily skin, I am quite particular about the sunscreen that I put on my face. Recently, I have been totally loving the Avon Anew Men Daily Moisturizer with SPF 50. Even with the high sun protection, this face sunscreen is not at all greasy. It actually keeps my skin relatively shine-free throughout the day and it's hydrating!

I try my best to make sure I am protected from the sun but overexposure and burns still happen every once in a while so I like to keep a soothing remedy handy. The Dermalogica After Sun Repair is infused with cucumber, aloe, camelia, lavender, and cloves extracts. When applied as soon as possible to sun-burned skin, it calms and alleviates the pain and discomfort almost instantaneously.
I was lucky enough to remember to bring this product with me on my trip to Hawaii and it was a life-saver!
Schick Intuition Razor
Schick Intuition Pure Nourishment Razor ($11.99 CAD):
Last but certainly not least is the Schick Intuition razor. With four blades, this razor is wrapped around by a thick bar of shea butter conditioner. When wet, the bar helps the moisturize the skin and it allows the blade to glide effortlessly. When I use this razor, I never need to use a shaving gel or a body lotion because it's that nourishing!
