Q and A Shaving Tips
Is it better to use hot, cold, or warm water to shave?
Warm water is best 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 best 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, colour, or texture. Shaving does, however, alter the tip shape or the regrown hair, which may initially change the way hair feels as it grows back. However, 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, you blade has dulled considerably; increasing the likelihood of nicks and cuts.

On one of the blades itself, I got E5054 on left and F3602 on the right.
On the packaging I got the serial number 97265445.
I haven't shaved yet and may come back and update this review once I have done. Just hope there okay. I did notice the Lubrication Strip wasn't as pronounced as my shop bought Fusion Power blades, but this may be normal as there a different make (Fusion Power vs ProGlide).
Update:after 3 shaves so far I notice the blades go blunt quicker than supermarket bought ones. I wouldn't buy again.
I have the power razor but also buy these manual blades as they are identical apart from the colour coordinated lubrication strip. I opt for whichever is the cheapest, you get EXACTLY the same shave.
As of end of March 2015, the blades are half price so have stocked up on them, so this is my choice of the moment in razors.
