Gillette Fusion Proglide Razor

Clean shave, little to no skin irritations, expensive replacement cartridges.

Gillette Fusion Proglide Razor

This is one of the best razors I have been using in the past (among those where Gillette Mach3 and Fusions without the Proglide) as it gives a clean shave with little to no skin irritations. The differences to the ‘ordinary’ Gillette Fusion appear to be just minor and the cartridges are interchangable (I tried that). The blades last for quite a while and the only thing preventing me from rating it 5 stars is the expense of replacement cartridges.

    The Gillette Fusion line’s latest incarnation. When the original (manual) Fusion shaving system was introduced in 2005, it was truly a major improvement over any and all previously available razors. It was (and still is) a truly revolutionary, advanced and innovative shaving system that made shaving virtually painless and hastle-free even for men with tough beards and/or sensitive skin. The ProGlide is the latest incarnation of the Fusion and it does offer some advantages over the original Fusion but not nearly enough to justify switching…

    Good handle, very good cartridge so far There’s no doubt the proglide version of the Gillette fusion is outstanding. But is it sigificantly better than the original fusion? This is what I’ve found. I shave in the shower, warm water, using a unscented Gillette shaving gel. The handle of the proglide has a slightly different shape, more of a knob at the end. I suppose the knobv makes it easier to grasp the end of the razor when making gentle swipes alog the skin, sort of an artist at work. But the handle of the original fusion is also…

    Only good for frequent shavers This razor is good for beards 1 to 3 days old.It cannot handle anything longer than that as the blades are very close to each other and requires short strokes,otherwise gets clogged very easily.It does not come no where near a Mach 3 when it comes to condition i mentioned above,in cases where you shave daily or alternate day it is way superior to a Mach3 and as advertised it has less tug and pull.I would recommend investing some more dollars for a different package which comes with a razor…
