Five Blades Cut Closer Than One

It’s not just that five blades cut better than one, Gillette Fusion Power blade technology features five blades spaced closer together to help supply a closer and more comfortable shave than MACH3. Gillette Fusion Power is an enhanced shaving system including a five-blade shaving technology surface, a precision trimmer blade and a flexible comfort guard.

Precision Trimmer

This single blade built into the back of the cartridge helps to shave tricky places like sideburns and under the nose.

The Precision Trimmer Blade can be used with the power turned on or off. Preference varies from person to person. Using the Precision Trimmer Blade with or without power is an individual choice.

Lubrastrip for Improved Glide

The lubrastrip sits at the top of your razor and makes shaving smoother by delivering water-soluble lubricants to the skin to improve glide and comfort. It also fades to white to let you know that you are no longer getting an optimal shave. Easily fixed with another Fusion Power blade.

Microfins Make A Big Difference

The ultra-soft skin guard on the blades is comprised of 15 thinner, more flexible microfins that precede the blades and help stretch and prepare the skin before the first blade cuts the first hair for a close, comfortable shave.

Want an Even Smoother Shave? Try Fusion Proglide Power with Flexball Technology

Gillette´s blades are now 2x preferred when used with the Fusion ProGlide Power handle with FlexBall Technology**. The FlexBall Technology enables the blades to pivot front to back and side to side while the reengineered low cutting force blades feature thinner, finer* edges with advanced, low-resistance coating to cut effortlessly through hair with less tug and pull than with Fusion.

Gillette Razors and Razor Blades

Tips for a Better Shave

- Is it better to use hot, cold or warm water to shave?

Warm water is always better for hydrating beard hair. Soaking in warm water softens hair and causes it to expand, making it 70 per cent easier to cut.

- What is the ideal way to avoid razor burn?

If the skin is not properly prepared before shaving or if the blade on your razor is dull, you are more likely to end up with razor burn. Make sure to hydrate hair in warm water for up to three minutes and apply plenty of shave gel. Also, you may want to consider changing the blade on your razor at the first sign of dullness or discomfort.

- Does shaving make your hair grow back thicker?

Scientists at Gillette have conducted extensive testing on the effects shaving has on both male and female hair growth, texture and colour. This testing has proven that shaving does not affect hair growth, texture or colour. Shaving does, however, alter the tip shape of the regrown hair, which may initially change the way hair feels as it grows back. But if hair is left to regrow completely, it will return to its former state.

- In what direction should I shave to achieve the best shave?

Men's facial hair tends to grow in different directions. Start by shaving with light, gentle strokes with the grain. Then, if necessary, go against the grain for an even closer shave.

- How do I avoid nicks and cuts, particularly above my upper lip?

The area above the upper lip is tricky for many men. To help avoid nicks and cuts, always leave it for last. Apply plenty of shave gel and allow this area to soak up as much lather as possible. When shaving, don't apply too much pressure. The Gillette Fusion ProGlide Precision Trimmer is really useful when shaving under the nose.

- Is it okay to let my girlfriend or wife borrow my men's razor?

For both hygiene and performance, it's not a good idea to share your razor with your partner. Women have a much larger area to shave and you may find that after only a few shaves, your blade has dulled considerably; increasing the likelihood of nicks and cuts. Tell her to try a razor specifically designed for the way a woman shaves, such as Gillette Venus Embrace.

I have the Fusion Power razor, and have been buying the power blades. However, there is s big price difference between the manual and power ones, so I thought that I would take a chance and use the manual ones in my power fusion.

The only difference I have found is that the colour of the lubricating strip is blue instead of orange on the power, and the indicator strip is green not blue. The performance is exactly the same and you can save yourself a few notes in the process by using these instead.

They say that you should get 6 months use out of 8 blades. I have found that you will get a lot more. I use a blade for a full month, replacing it on the 1st of every month. After that, the blades do get a little blunt, but I could probably get a few more weeks out of them, but at the risk of scraping my skin a little. the indicator strip which is a visible sign that the blade needs changing tends to wear off after a few weeks, so I completely ignore this.

Advise anyone who has the excellent Fusion razor to use these blades, you will save money and get the same blades, but not colour co-ordinated to your power razor.

I use these Fusion manual blades instead of the power ones and they are good. However as with all Gillette blades they are expensive. But I reckon I have found a great way of making them last much longer. I buy a pack of BIC throwaways and use these to shave with the grain (downwards) This removes most of the stubble.Then I use my Gillette fusion blades to shave against the grain(upwards). I end up with a perfectly smooth skin, and I can make a Gillette blade last around two months. Brilliant.Try it and see for yourself. Bics only cost about a quid for 10,but go steady with them because they are sharp.

The reason why razors go blunt is through corrosion so if you keep them dry they will last a month maybe more. The Science behind the 5 blades is to raise hair up and away from the skin prior to being cut, so each time a blade passes over it cuts a bit more off so you need fewer strokes and end up with a nice clean shave. Amazon sells them two to three quid cheaper than all high street super markets!

After trying a great many different type of blades, and after many years of sticking to the Mach 3 Turbo blades, I am now a convert to Gillette Fusion. I did try some Tesco cheapies, but I looked like I had been attacked by a bunch of Ninja warriors. Fusion are of course the most expensive blades, true; but they outlast other types of blade by at least 3 times so are actually very cost-effective. And when you consider the great deals on toiletries at Amazon, what's not to like? I am more than satisfied with this product, especially from Amazon.

My hair is thick and like steel wool, so shaving can be a painful dragging experience. I started using the fusion blades around two years ago and my first reaction was that having 5 blades is a surprising yet significant improvement on 3 blades of the M3. The tug on individual hairs feels less as the pulling force on the hairs is more distributed across the larger razor surface, I get fewer cuts due to this, I used to get on average around 7 cuts per shave, now its down to 1-3 each shave shaving every other day, that may still not sound good but is a big improvement for me.

I started with the fusion power razor but eventually never bothered to replace the battery as it wasn't doing that much for me having the razor vibrate (or emitting strange and wonderful waves of energy as the advert would have you believe, its just vibration!). Note that these ordinary fusion blades (not power blades) will still fit your fusion power razor! You are not tied down to use the more expensive fusion power blades with your fusion power razor as Gillette would have you believe. The standard fusion blades work perfectly well, vibration or no vibration.

The single blade for fine trimming is useless for me. I require this 5 bladed razor as it can make better work of my thicker hair, so trying to use the one blade is not useful, it cannot cut sideburns and in fact it rarely actually even catches a hair to be able to cut it, as if its too retracted into the shaver case and not able to get a good reach into a piece of hair. I guess it may work if you have thinner softer hair but then buying a five bladed top end razor seems like bit of a contradiction.

The blades actually wash surprisingly easily considering it has 5 blades close together.

Good fakes but not as sharpe as the real thing and not as long lasting as the real thing. Half price for a reason. If you have skin like a elephant they are fine, if not you will get razor burn and cuts. Pay the money and get genuines

These blades may seem expensive (though they are cheaper here on Amazon UK), but they do last a vary long time.

I am not sure there is actually any difference between these and the more expensive Gillette Fusion Power Blades - 8 Pack, (which are generally a couple of £ more expensive on the shops), apart from the colour. So even if you own the "Power" version of the razor itself, I would stick with these "manual" ones.

I am still on my first blade and have now come to the end of my 5th week of using it, and it is still going strong. Yes, you can feel that it is nowehere near as sharp as it was when it was fresh from the packet but, as I said, it is still giving a vary close shave without any associated razor burning rash. I have dark hair and have to shave every morning so they are out to the test.

The instructions state that you should change the blade when the colour stripe fades. Rubbish! Take no notice whatsoever! It is just a way of Gillette trying to get you to buy the blades more frequent than you really need to.

I would recommend these blades. Some people have complained that the blades, being 5, are too clumsy to shave the top lip. Nonsense! I have had no proplems whatsoever. There is even a single blade of the reverse of the blade head for shaving directly under the nose.

I am wondering when we'll start seeing the 6-blade razors out. :)
