For the first time, Gillette's next generation razor blades have breakthrough technology on both the front and the back of the cartridge. Gillette Fusion Power blades also have a Flexible Comfort Guard, an Enhanced Indicator Lubrastrip. Coupled with the improved forward pivot and ergonomically designed handle of the Gillette Fusion Power razor, these deliver Gillette's best shave ever.
Gillette Fusion is the first and only shaving system that has breakthrough technology on the front and the back of the cartridge:-
|The front of the cartridge has 5 blades spaced closer together, forming a shaving surface, with a patented blade coating that provides incredible glide and comfort. The blades of the shaving surface are spaced 30% closer together than those of the MACH 3 Turbo. This configuration distributes the shaving force across the blades resulting in extraordinary comfort. In addition to more comfort, the 5 Blade Shaving Surface Technology also engages more hairs, more times with successive cutting action.|
|The back of the cartridge features a truly innovative Precision Trimmer. The Precision Trimmer is a single blade built into the back of the cartridge. To use the trimmer, consumers turn the razor over. In this position the pivot feature is locked, giving consumers control and allowing them to better align and manoeuvre the blade. The locked pivot allows consumers to easily shave tricky places like sideburns and under the nose. The Precision Trimmer is also perfect for shaping around facial hair.|
|Gillette Fusion features a new Flexible Comfort Guard. The new guard contains 15 microfins--5 more than the MACH 3 Turbo. The soft, flexible material surrounds the microfins creating an outer edge that wraps around the sides of the cartridge. This new Flexible Comfort Guard follows the contours of the face to help the shaving surface comfortably shave close.|
|The Indicator Lubrastrip has been enhanced. Shave by shave, the entire Indicator Lubrastrip and not just one stripe gradually fades from green to white when optimal shave conditions have been reduced. The Enhanced Indicator Lubrastrip is enriched with vitamin E and aloe.|
For best results use with Gillette Fusion Hydragel shaving gel and Gillette Fusion Hydracool Aftershave.

Like others, I'd noticed that shave quality wasn't as good as it used to be with these blades - more nicks and cuts and rash. The blades felt blunt from new.
Today, I did a test of a brand new blade:
On each blade is a blue lubricating strip. In the manufacturer's description, it clearly states that this strip:
" ... fades to white to let you know that you are no longer getting an optimal shave, easily fixable with another Gillette Fusion Power blade."
In the manufacturer's description it also says:
"One razor blade refill equals up to one month of shaves".
I tested a new blade today - the strip was blue before I started.
I shaved with the "new" blade - a few nicks, some soreness - not as close as these blades used to shave.
At the end of the shave, the "lubrastrip" on the razor blade was almost completely white. This, according to the blurb means that I should change the blade.
I can only assume that:
(a) Gillette developers and designers only shave once a month. and/or
(b) These blades are either counterfeit or below-sales quality - "seconds" or "rejects"
Whichever is the case, I've now cancelled my subsription and I'm going try another brand or the same blades from a retail shop.
Amazon will be refunding me the cost of the last batch of blades I bought from them.
The couple of quid I can save on these blades through Amazon isn't worth the reduced quality of the product.
Easy to use, each blade lasts a decent amount of time before needing to be replaced. To be honest it's not the blades that need replacing, it's usually the comfort strip that sooths the skin while you shave that goes first. I shave most days and find I can get a good months use out of each blade, so while a large pack might seem expensive it'll last you some time.
