Q and A Fusion ProGlide Power
How long will the Gillette Fusion ProGlide razor blades last?
How long razor blades last is dependent on many variables such as beard toughness and thickness, beard preparation, shaving habits, and skin sensitivity. The Gillette Fusion ProGlide reformulated Indicator Lubricating Strip (vs Fusion) will provide you with a visual cue - it fades to white when optimal shaving conditions have been reduced. When this happens, you might want to consider changing your razor blades to get an optimal shave.
How was the Precision Trimmer improved over the Fusion?
The blade was enhanced, and anti-clogging rinse slots were added.
What is the streamlined Comfort Guard with channels, and what are its benefits?
Gillette Fusion ProGlide features a streamlined Comfort Guard. The soft, flexible material surrounds the microfins, creating an outer edge that wraps around the sides of the razor blades and channels away excess shave prep, for optimal blade contact.
Will the Gillette Fusion ProGlide razor blades fit any other razors on the market?
The Gillette Fusion ProGlide razor blade head fits on any Gillette Fusion, Fusion Power, or Fusion ProGlide Power handle.
For best results, should the power be turned on or off when using the Precision Trimmer blade?
The Precision Trimmer Blade can be used with the power turned on or off. Using the Precision Trimer Blade with or without power is an individual choice.
Does movement of the razor give men a better shave?
The addition of oscillation to Gillette wet shaving systems has been shown to deliver a boost in shaving performance - the soothing micropulses help reduce friction and increase razor glide, which leads to greater comfort vs. manual razors.
What is the microchip, and how does it work?
A battery-powered razor delivers an optimal shave when the voltage and frequency remain consistent, shave after shave. Over the lifetime fo the battery, the voltage can weaken, reducing frequency and, therefore, performance. The microchip in the Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power maintains constant voltage and frequency over the lifetime of the battery, delivering consistent product performance every time you shave.
How does the low-battery indicator light work?
When a battery reaches a certain level, the oscillation frequency declines and the system is no longer capable of delivering the optimal shave. The microchip inside the Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power senses when the battery is approaching this level. When this happens, the low-battery indicator light begins to flash, signaling that it's time to change the battery.
What's the automatic shutoff feature?
The automatic shutoff feature turns the razor off after roughly 8 minutes of continuous operation. This feature protects the battery if the Fusion ProGlide Power razor is accidentally activated, which comes in especially handy during travel.
What type of battery does Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power men's razor use? How long does it last?
Similar to the MACH3 Sensitive, the Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power uses an AAA battery. With the low-battery indicator light, Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power will let you know when it's time to change the battery. Assuming average shaving, the battery should last approximately 3-6 months.
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.

So what about the Gillette Fusion Power? Well, my first reaction was a somewhat Luddite belief that a razor shouldn't need batteries and my second was "so how many MORE blades can they get into a cassette razor?"
Then there are the other "features" - the powered blades "delivers soothing micropulses with comfort so incredible; you'll barely feel the blades" and apparently a "microcomb" that "actually helps guide hair to the blade." So, "together, these technologies combine to create Gillette's most comfortable shave." I'm always wary of copy that promises huge improvements over previous versions (so Gillette's previous versions are now crap, are they?), and uses buzzwords like "technology" (so it MUST be good if it's "technology") and "system" (ditto) and so-on. Grrreat!
The proof of this technologically advanced supertechnopudding is in the eating. Certainly it shaves well... but not noticeably better than my old razor.Read more ›
If I'm being totally honest I can not see any difference at all between the Gillette Fusion Proglide Power Razor & my Gillette Fusion Power. I'm sure there is differences that will help with marketing etc. But as a normal user of powered Razors they both feel the same to me. Both give a very nice, clean & close shave with no hairs remaining.
So, what can I tell you about the new "Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power Razor" erm... it takes a small penlight (AAA) battery which comes with the razor - it fits into a compartment in the handle - which you 'twist' to get access to. When you switch on the power switch, the razor vibrates and the power button illuminates in a rather fetching electric blue colour.
The razor itself is quite stylish looking (in my opinion) in blue, silver and black. It is however quite expensive for a razor - battery powered/enhanced or whatever you want to call it aside.
And how does it shave and feel I hear you ask? It is quite an unusual feeling to have the head (and handle) buzz as it does - sounding like half a dozen bees distractedly buzzing around your stubble - chewing away at the facial hair you no longer want.
The 'new thinner, finer blades' do seem to cut quite close and fine - having five of them appears to catch almost all stubble. I am really not 100% sure that the oscillating of the blades made a huge difference to the closeness or overall completeness of the task though and after a few minutes I grew tired of my hand vibrating and used the razor on manual (!) - the job of which it fulfilled as well as any razors I have used. And it IS a soft shave - the head DOES actually glide over your face.
Because the blades are small and the way in which it is mounted in the head it is slightly more difficult to clean than most - I like to thoroughly clean mine after every use to ensure they are longer lasting - an old tooth brush will do the trick though.
The Fusion ProGlide's ergonomics are well thought out. Although the razor is very light (I prefer a little heft), it is well balanced in the hand and offers excellent grip. The cartridge is also very well designed, allowing water to rinse stubble out of the blades and allowing them to continue working optimally. The single blade on the rear of the cartridge is a good idea and comes in handy for "precision" trimming around sideburns and any other facial hair you like to sport. However, this single blade is solution to a problem that need not exist... The proliferation of blades on the front of the cartridge seems totally superfluous to me. At the very least, the height of the shaving surface means that not only can you not see precisely where the blade is on your face, but it offers very little "travel" over the moustache area. Seems an obvious and silly oversight to me. So, you shave some of the moustache, and then have to switch to the "precision" trimmer to do the rest.
The styling is not to my taste but then, I do prefer the classic lines of DE razors. The styling reminds me of 1980s Nike Air trainers. Not necessarily in a good way. Comparing this with the ...Read more ›
