Frequently Asked Questions

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 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 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.

Clean Shave

I have pretty sensitive skin but this razor didn't overly irritate it. It gave me a good, clean shave; above average for a disposable razor. I was expecting a much closer shave from all of the hyped up flex ball commercials; however, it did a good job and I would buy it again. I do have an electric razor that I think I would stick with for most of my shaves but these would be great for when I'm traveling. As for the GSC, I can see that it is a great idea and very convenient for people who would be using this as their primary razor. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

First Impressions

To be honest, I work from home, so I don't need to shave all the time. I hate shaving, the feeling afterwards made me want to go full bushman.Everything has changed. I had no idea what a close shave felt like until I shaved with this razor. It has become a morning ritual now, it makes my face feel baby smooth.No more bushman for this guy.
