FAQ


What is FlexBall™ Technology?
Handles featuring FlexBall™ Technology allow the blades to respond to the contours of your face. This means a close shave with fewer missed hairs (vs. Fusion5™ in a single stroke over the contours).

What makes Gillette® Fusion5™ ProGlide® better than Gillette Fusion5™?
The handle features FlexBall™ Technology that responds to contours for a great shave, even over the trickiest areas.

How does the Gillette Fusion5™ ProGlide handle compare with the Gillette Fusion5™ handle?
The Fusion5™ ProGlide handle now has FlexBall Technology, plus ergonomic side grips for incredible handling.

How long will the Gillette Fusion5™ ProGlide razor blade refill last?
How long a razor blade refill lasts is dependent on many variables such as beard toughness and thickness, beard preparation, shaving habits, and skin sensitivity. The Gillette Fusion5™ ProGlide’s reformulated Indicator® Lubricating Strip (vs. Fusion5™) will provide you with a visual cue—it fades to white—when optimal shave conditions have been reduced. When this happens, you might want to consider changing your razor blades to get an optimal shave.

What are thinner, finer blades, and how will they improve my shave?
Gillette Fusion5™ ProGlide Power and ProGlide Manual men’s razors have been engineered with Gillette’s thinnest, finest blades to glide through hair with less tug and pull*.

How was the Precision Trimmer improved over the Fusion5™?
The blade was enhanced and anti-clogging rinse slots were added.

What is the Streamlined Comfort Guard, and what are its benefits?
Gillette Fusion5™ 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 blade head and channels away excess shave prep for optimal razor blade contact.

Have there been any enhancements to the Lubrastrip™ vs. Gillette Fusion5™?
Yes. It contains more lubricants and a touch of mineral oil.

Will Gillette Fusion5™ ProGlide razor blade refills fit any other razors on the market?
Yes, all Fusion5™ blades fit all Fusion5™ and Fusion5™ Power razors.

Title *Great

I think... *Havng used the package through the first razor head, here are my thoughts on the package as a whole: - The handle is comfortable to hold, has just the right amount of weight, and is balanced very well - The razor achieves a very close shave with little to no razor burn and one replacement will last a whole week, even with my thick, wiry facial har - The shave gel keeps you skin feeling smooth, but the fragrance isn't for everyone The handle is great. Very well designed, the sides and top have a rubberized grip which is patterned to prevent slippage. Under the grips the handle has the weight of what I assume is an aluminum body, its heavy enough to not feel like a cheap disposable razor, but isn't as heavy as your dad's old safety razor handle. The whole weight is distributed such that the side grips on the handle easily mark the center of balance with a detachable razor head attached. If you've ever used a cheap disposable razor, you know how an off balance handle can lead to uneven shaves. The razor blades themselves are easily some of the best I've ever had the pleasure to use. Even shavers that are just starting out will have no problem getting a close shave comparable to a professional barber giving you a hot shave. With my thick, wiry facial hair, the blades held up for 5 shaves, once daily for the work week. The last day was the first day I began to notice the blade starting to tug on the hairs in the slightest. I prefer to remain clean shaven, so I didn't use the precision blade on the back of the razor, so I can't comment on it's performance. The only problem I had with this kit, and this is solely down to personal preference, was the shave gel included in the kit. I did not like the fragrance of the shave gel. I compared it to the fragrance of my sister's shaving cream, and they smelled almost the same, except mine had a slight minty twinge. When I asked my father and brother-in-law what they thought of the smell, they both commented that it smelled "girly". Odor aside, the shave gel worked great, foamed up to make a great lather and provided an awesome shaving medium. It also had a nice cooling sensation (probably the source of the aforementioned minty twinge). Overall I would recommend the handle and razor to my friends and family (I already have in fact), and if you like the scent of the shave gel, the whole kit is a winner in my book.

Clean Shave

I think that this razor is great. It beats the old razor I used to use. A nice a close shave without missing any stubble. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Great aesthetics and an even better shave

Having used the Gillette Fusion Manual Razor for years, I was naturally curious as to how the Flexball Technology in the new Gillette Fusion ProGlide would affect my daily shaves. I was immediately impressed with the aesthetics of the razor. It definitely looked and felt like a premium product and the chrome and orange trim make the razor look like something out of the future! I felt the benefits of the Flexball Technology almost instantaneously as I took my first stroke down my cheek. Coming straight down it feels like any other razor, but where this razor leaves the competition in the dust is it's ability to conform to the curves of my jawbone seamlessly. It literally went all over my face like butter! To the doubters, I'd say that the Flexball Technology takes a product already leaps and bounds above the competition, and propels it into the future.
