Q and A Fusion ProGlide

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.

Have there been any enhancements to the Lubrastrip vs. Gillette Fusion?
Yes. It contains more lubricants and a touch of mineral oil.

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.

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.

I would generally say that I have over the years loved the Gillete system for shaving and so it did not take convincing to try this razor as a change from my Wilkinson Sword. Every so often I like to change the make of the razor and generally the two main manufacturers get my custom. This razor has proven to be good, but in truth it has not given me the perfection I had anticipated from Gillete. I had been getting an easily achieved three weeks out of my Wilkinson Sword for the last year or so and the suggested blade life for this Gillete seems to be a suggested three weeks, but in fact anything much over two weeks and you are risking a lot of blood letting, the blades start to dull very noticeably as the end of the second week approaches.
I think the major drawback in having a shorter blade life has to be principally the cost of buying a greater number of blades which are invariably more expensive than WS. However this is closely followed by the issue of waste of finite resources in the manufacture of those extra blades.

I'm getting really fatigued with the amount of choice in mens razors these days, they just keep adding more and more blades per shave and now vibrating heads etc etc... If you have hair on your face and you don't want hair on your face, then just get a sharp razor and shave it off. I don't like all this gimmicky stuff anymore!

Having said all of that, this Fusion Proglide is definitely the best shave I've had in a very, very long time. Very smooth action, no nicks, cuts or scrapes and I got about a two weeks or so out of each blade head before having to change (shaving 2-3 times a week).

The only obvious downside to this blade, is that it is quite expensive, and I'm 50/50 whether I will buy another set due to its price per blade.

If you haven't tried this razor yet, then yes, I do highly recommend it. The only reason I might not go for it again is the cost.

Purchased the wrong blades which meant a trip into town to change. Considered the costs of that and decided to order the razor to go with the blades I had purchased. Arrived next day after ordering so definitely recommend. We have two bathrooms and he keeps 2 razors in each now. He also uses the MAC3 which he feels is better for the upper lip. The other gillette razors which he had have now been confined to the bin since I was always getting the wrong blades for them. I only wish they would make a couple of different types which would use similar blades and then I would not be tossing razors in the bin when all they need are new blades.

My husband recieved this for Christmas. Here is his review.

Gillette is a great brand for all things shaving.
This razor is superb.
It has a nice feel and delivers a really close shave.
What I like is that there is no chaffing after. How do they do this???
The blades last quite long ( for me anyway )

I won't use the disposable packs in the future.
This is the razor for me.

I get a great shave from this razor, but as always the blades are so expensive. But I found how to make each blade last for 2 months. Search Amazon for the 'Razorpit Razor Blade Sharpener'. It's really works. You just rub your razor on it several times after each shave (in the wrong direction) and I now change my blade on the first of every second month. One thing though.... I find that the blue flexible guide at the front of the blade makes the sharpening dificult. So I just rip this off each new blade before I use it the first time. I also use the sharpener under water. I seems to operate more smoothly.

If you have a Mach3 Power or a Mach 3 Sensitive then I would suggest sticking with it. There isn't really much improvement over the Mach3 here and the basic Gillette Mach 3 blades are much cheaper. The Fusion ProGlide Power Razor with Flexball is more comfortable to hold as it is a bit more chunky and the 'power' bit is actually a slight improvement to the closeness of the shave - the vibrations do seem to help to cut the hairs closer and the ProGlide Power vibrations are better than on the Mach3 Power.

I dare say that razors have come a long way, and each new Gillete model is generally very slightly better than the last. I have had nearly every new one (saw me coming). But I still think that the Mach3 Power is great (one that I kept of many razors that I have had) and the ProGlide is really quite a small improvement - I still need to shave twice to get a close shave (once with the grain and then a second time against) and there are still odd areas where it seems impossible to get a perfectly close shave. I will say that I seem to cut myself less with the ProGlide and I put this down to the blade stabilisers. One thing I prefer about the Fusion ProGlide over other razors I have had is the more ergonomically shaped handle and the rubber grips.
