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?

All Raz'ed up about Gillette Fusion® ProShield™ Chill Razor!

I was lucky to receive the Gillette Fusion® ProShield™ Chill Razor free from Gillette recently and immediately put it to the test.What I received were: 1 Gillette Fusion® ProShield™ Chill Razor with Flexball Technology, 1 6oz can of Gillette Fusion Proglide Sensitive Gel, and 1 plastic holder for the razor to be placed when not in use.One of the first observations I made with the razor was that it is a 5-blade format - this is the most number of blades I have ever used on a single razor. With that, I had high expectations!The next feature I noted on the razor was the Flexball which is a bonus feature not always included in many manual razors.The third major feature that peeked my interest about the razor was the gel strip. Although the packaging stated there are supposed to be two strips, I only noticed one strip along the top of the razor.I am not an abundantly hairy guy but still need to shave every morning, as you can see in the attached pictures. And as per standard process, I always lather with shaving gel on my chin, cheeks, and above my lips. The can of gel easily dispensed just the right amount of gel. What I particularly liked about the design of the can dispenser is that there is no additional cover (which is normal for most other gels). The gel itself had the right texture and consistency. It was cooling when applied to my face. It was not runny and only had the faintest scent. After my shave, it left my skin soft. In essence this is the best shaving gel I have used! What I would like to note, however, is that gel strips that came with the razor didn't seem to serve much purpose - unless you don't apply gel to your face before shaving.Using the razor itself, I noticed the easy glide which allowed me to cover all surfaces where I needed a close shave. I attributed this to the Flexball technology which allowed me to tilt the razor along the contours of my face. The grip was also comfortable and ergonomically designed, allowing me to shave without my fingers slipping. This is very important to help avoid nicks.In conclusion, I would say this is the closest shave I have been able to achieve with a manual razor. I definitely would recommend this product to others and intend to purchase it when this razor is done. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

My experience with Gillette's new manual razor

Prior to receiving this product, I was skeptical as to how this would be different from Gillette's other manual razor. But using this new Gillette Fusion® ProShield™ Chill Manual Razor with Flexball™ Technology, I can safely say that this was and still is the best comfortable shaving experience. I had no post shave irritation as claimed by the product. I would recommend this product for individuals looking into acquiring a new manual razor.
