They are finished with Gillette’s most advanced low-resistance coating, which allows the blades to glide effortlessly through hair. Providing incredible comfort, even if you shave everyday.

Even with thinner, finer blades*, an enhanced lubrastrip and improved blade suspension system, you may not see all of the latest innovations on the Gillette Fusion ProGlide and Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power Razors with the naked eye but after one shave, you’ll stop shaving and start gliding.

  • The redesigned handle now has larger, more ergonomic grips for better control.
  • The redesigned precision trimmer now features an improved blade and anti-clogging rinse slots.
  • The streamlined comfort guard offers channels to help clear away excess shave prep.
  • The enhanced Lubrastrip™ is now larger, with more lubricants and a touch of mineral oil.

FAQs

How does the Gillette® Fusion® ProGlide™handle compare with the Gillette Fusion handle?

How long a cartridge lasts varies from person to person, as it is dependent on many variables such as beard toughness and thickness, beard preparation, shaving habits, and skin sensitivity. The Gillette Fusion ProGlide's reformulated Indicator Lubrastrip™ will provide you with a visual cue - it fades to white - when optimal shave conditions have been reduced. When this happens, you may want to change your cartridge for a more comfortable shave.

What are thinner, finer blades and how will they improve my shave?

Gillette® Fusion® ProGlide™ has 5 blades spaced closer together, forming an advanced shaving surface. The razor blades are thinner than those of Fusion–a design that allows the blades to be even more flexible.


How was the Precision Trimmer redesigned?

The blade was improved and anti-clogging rinse slots were added.

Gillette® Fusion® ProGlide™ features a new Streamlined Comfort Guard. The soft, flexible material surrounds the microfins, creating an outer edge that wraps around the sides of the cartridge and channels that clear away excess shave prep. This Streamlined Comfort Guard follows the contours of your face to help the shaving surface of the razor comfortably shave close.


Have there been any enhancements to the lubrication strip?

Yes. It now contains more lubricants and a touch of mineral oil.

The Gillette Fusion ProGlide cartridge features a new razor blade that fits on any Gillette Fusion, Fusion ProGlide or Fusion ProGlide Power™ handle.


Is it better to use hot, cold, or warm water to shave?

Warm water is best for hydrating beard hair. Soaking in warm water softens hair and causes it to expand, making it 70% easier to cut.


What is the best way to avoid razor burn?

If the skin is not properly prepared before shaving or if the blade on your razor is dull, you are more likely to end up with razor burn. Make sure to hydrate hair in warm water for up to three minutes and apply plenty of shave gel. Also, be sure to change the blade on your razor at the first sign of dullness or discomfort.


Is it okay to let my girlfriend or wife borrow my men’s razor?

For both hygiene and performance, it's not a good idea to share your razor with your partner. Women have a much larger area to shave and you may find that after only a few shaves, your blade has dulled considerably, increasing the likelihood of nicks and cuts. Tell her to try a razor specifically designed for the way a woman shaves, such as Gillette® Venus® Embrace®.If the skin is not properly prepared before shaving or if the blade on your razor is dull, you are more likely to end up with razor burn. Make sure to hydrate hair in warm water for up to three minutes and apply plenty of shave gel. Also, be sure to change the blade on your razor at the first sign of dullness or discomfort.


Does shaving make your hair grow back thicker?

Scientists at Gillette have conducted extensive testing on the effects shaving has on both male and female hair growth, texture and color. This testing has proven that shaving does not affect hair growth, color or texture. Shaving does, however, alter the tip shape of the regrown hair, which may initially change the way hair feels as it grows back. But if hair is left to re-grow completely, it will return to its former state..


In what direction should I shave to achieve the best shave?

Scientists at Gillette have conducted extensive testing on the effects shaving has on both male and female hair growth, texture and color. This testing has proven that shaving does not affect hair growth, color or texture. Shaving does, however, alter the tip shape of the regrown hair, which may initially change the way hair feels as it grows back. But if hair is left to re-grow completely, it will return to its former state.


What is the difference between disposable and refillable razors?

The entire shaving razor is discarded when you are through with a disposable razor. With a refillable razor, only the blade cartridge is replaced. Refillable razors like Gillette® Fusion® ProGlide™ and Gillette Fusion incorporate more advanced blade technology and ergonomics vs. most disposables for great control and a close comfortable shave.


What is the difference between a single, double, triple and 5-blade razor? Which is best?

Gillette's research has demonstrated that single blade technology, which has been applied since 1901, is demonstrably inferior to twin blade shaving systems such as SensorExcel®, and even more so to 5-blade systems such as Gillette® Fusion® ProGlide™. But the number of blades alone does not ensure an outstanding shave. The 5-blade shaving surface of Fusion ProGlide Power™ features progressive blade alignment, patented blade coating process and a flexible comfort guard which collectively provide Gillette's best shave.


How do I avoid nicks and cuts, particularly above my upper lip?

The area above the upper lip is tricky for many men. To help avoid nicks and cuts, always leave it for last. Apply plenty of shave gel or shaving cream and allow this area to soak up as much lather as possible. When shaving, don't apply too much pressure. Gillette® Fusion® ProGlide's™ Precision Trimmer is really useful when shaving under the nose.
