Frequently Asked Questions

What is ProShield Lubrication?
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?
Yes. Using a non-drying shave gel, like Fusion5 ProGlide Sensitive Shave Gel, softens hair and helps defend against nicks and cuts.

amazing thing ever and is free

the shaving gel feels like lotion and the razor saved time due to the trimmer in rear! Pivot helped reach contours of my face where other razors have failed me and the best part it was free and so worth the review for sure will post reviews on other websites because amazon dont work (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Great item. Does not last that long to be honest.

If you shave every day like me in two weeks the blade will get dull. I had to replace the blade after two weeks of using it.

Yes, I recommend this product!

Best razor yet!

This is a good product! The blade is super smooth on your skin - you hardly feel it at all. The shaving gel has a nice clean smell, and is a good compliment to the blade. Compared to other shaving foams that I have used in the past, this left my skin feeling smooth. If you're in the market for a new disposable razor set - this is the one.This gets four starts only because IF you already have a Fusion Proglide, then there really isn't a point in getting the Proshield - they're not so drastically different. The shave gel is excellent all on it's own.Thanks BzzAgent for letting my trial this product. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)
