I noticed that too. I usually just shave with water and never have a problem. I use Schick Hydro 5 for men and it lasts and never itchy skin. First time I used Schick Hydro Silk my legs didn't feel dry but felt like I have itchy dry skin (even after lotioning right out the shower). Going back to my men's razor which works wonders, if it's good enough for a man's beard, it's good enough for my leg hair lol.
