Unlike other razors, ProShield is our first razor with lubrication before and after the blades to shield from irritation.

How is Chill different than Fusion5 ProShield?
For the first time ever on a Gillette razor, our Chill Lubrication includes Cooling Technology for a refreshing sensation during your shave.

What is FlexBall Technology?
Handles featuring FlexBall Technology allow the blades to respond to the contours of your face to get virtually every hair. 

What makes Fusion5 ProShield better than Fusion5?
With lubrication before and after the blade, ProShield Lubrication shields while you shave. Its handle features FlexBall Technology that responds to contours even over the trickiest areas. 

How will thinner, finer blades improve my shave? 

Gillette Fusion5 ProShield razors feature Gillette's thinnest, finest blades* ever to glide through hair with less tug and pull.† 

What is the Precision Trimmer?
The ProShield Precision Trimmer, on the back of the blades, features an enhanced blade and anti-clogging rinse slots—perfect for hard-to-reach areas.

Will ProShield blade refills fit any other Gillette handles?
Yes, all Fusion5 blades fit all Fusion5 and Fusion5 Power razors.

Should I still use a shave gel product with the ProShield razor?

Nice clean shave

I received the Gillette Fusion ProShield Chill Razor with Flexball Technology for free from Gillette to test. Right out of the package it felt different. It's got a nice grip and weight to it and fit comfortably in my hand. It also felt like a much better quality build from other razors I have used (including other Gillette brand razors) and I got the impression the handle and the blade will last a long time.Using it for the first time was a complete joy. I had a few days worth of growth and it shaved as if I had no hair on my face at all. Plus, no cuts or nicks - just a nice clean shave when I was done. I also didn't need to put much work into getting around those tight spots under the jaw or under the nose.Along with the razor I also received a can of Gillette Fusion ProGlide Sensitive Gel 2-in-1 (Ocean Breeze) for free from Gillette and I must say I was impressed with it as well. I'm not a fan of smelly shaving creams or gels (or aftershave) as they usually bother me (very sensitive nose and skin). This had a very low fragrance and was soothing on the face (even my wife thought it was nice).I have used the razor twice since my first experience and the quality has not differed at all. I expect to get a lot of life out of it and highly recommend giving it a try. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Great shave!

I have always preferred using electric razors over cartridge razors, mainly for practicality reasons such as efficiency and ergonomics. But after I received the Gillette Fusion ProShield Chill Razor free from Gillette to try, my opinions have changed, especially towards this razor. This outstanding razor is different from other cartridge razors, due to better grip, more maneuverability, as well as increased durability. I find that the 5 precision blades really helped speed up the experience, as I didn't have to shave over areas multiple times. My opinion of cartridge razors have changed thanks to this product, and I am willing to continue using it to see how it will fare in the long term. I encourage anyone to go ahead and check this razor out, as the starter pack costs only an affordable $20. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)
