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.
