Gillette Fushion Proglide Razor

I used to use Mach 3 turbo from Gillette. Ever since I got Gillette Fushion Proglide Razor, I know for a fact that I will be switching. After using this, my face feels amazingly smooth and clean. My wife loves feeling my face. I am used to using a razor with 3 blades, but this 5 blade razor is outstanding. My face is very moist and smooth for days. I will continue to buy this product. I hope everyone tries this product out. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.) (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Use of manual razor

I typically use an electric razor to shave, however with my wife's insistance i tried the fusion pro glide and was very impressed at how well it works. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.) (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Highly Recommended

This razor is exactly what I need and want. I've seen it advertised and have been curious to try it and it's great.The handle has great rubberised grips so there's no risk of slipping or dropping it, there's even a small bit of grip for your finger on the back of the powerball when using the precision blade.The titling head and powerball combo make long smooth glides really easy which is massively useful when you get to the jawline and adam's apple!The blades are super sharp and cut through tough chin hair without any pulling which is a joy for me as that has been a problem with all previous razors. I also got zero razor burn which is a big issue I have with every razor and no nicks or cuts in the process.The overall design looks great and I am now considering buying a second one with the vibrating feature and using this one as my travel razor so I'm never without one!
