FAQ


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

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

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

How should I store my Proshield Razor?
For best results, do not store face down when wet. It is best to store the razor in its special holder after the shave or let it dry in an upright position.

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 and styling facial hair.

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 Fusion ProGlide 2-in-1 Sensitive Shave Gel, softens hair and helps defend against nicks and cuts.

Smooth shave with limited irritation

I enjoyed this product and do feel it offers an improvement over prior iterations of Gillette razor. The ProShield lubricated strips do seem to reduce irritation -- very important to me given that my skin tends to be quite sensitive, and often becomes red due to shaving. The handle is comfortable, as is always the case with Gillette products. In general blades don't last as long as I'd like them to (likely due to my coarse facial hair); however, the blades on the ProGlide do seem to be standing up well and have lasted for a few weeks.My one hesitation regarding this product, along with most modern multi-blade razors, is that the blades themselves are too close together. While this helps achieve a close and comfortable shave, I find my stubble clogs up the space between the blades which reduces effectiveness, requiring more passes across my skin (and therefore increasing irritation). Admittedly this limitation is likely a result of my aforementioned coarse facial hair.Overall, despite this limitation (which applies not only to this product, but most multi-blade systems), the product is quality and I would definitely consider using it in the future!

Smooth...very smooth

Smooth...very smooth. The fluid motion is a definitely big up for me. Probably the best thing about it. Not sure I would pay the money to buy it,but great to try out. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
