Frequently Asked Questions
What makes Gillette Fusion Power better than MACH3?
What makes Fusion Power better than MACH3 is eight years of shaving innovation. Gillette Fusion Power is an advanced shaving system with technology on the front and back. It shares the same core razor blade technology as Gillette Fusion:
The 5-Blade Shaving Technology Surface, the Precision Trimmer Blade, and the Flexible Comfort Guard.In addition, Fusion features an Indicator Lubricating Strip that fades to white when you might no longer be getting an optimal shave.Gillette Fusion Power contains a microchip inside the razor handle. The microchip creates an entirely different platform of technology that helps drive the system’s performance.
Does movement of the razor give men a better shave?
With the introduction of battery-powered razors, Gillette has opened a new chapter in wet shaving. The addition of oscillation to Gillette wet shaving systems has been shown to deliver a “boost” in shaving performance – the soothing Micropulses help reduce friction and increase razor glide, which leads to greater comfort vs. manual razors.
For best results, should the power be turned on or off when using the Precision Trimmer Blade?
The Precision Trimmer Blade can be used with the power turned on or off. Preference varies from person to person. Using the Precision Trimmer Blade with or without power is an individual choice.
Make sure you’re always stocked up on Gillette Fusion Power Refill Cartridges. Gillette Fusion Power offers every man—whether clean-shaven or with facial hair–a great way to shave. Gillette Fusion features a 5-Blade Shaving Surface Technology on the front of the shaving cartridge. The blades are spaced 30 percent closer together than the Mach3® razor family. This creates a shaving surface that distributes the shaving force across the blades for less irritation and more comfort. Includes a Lubrastrip® which fades from blue to white, signaling when shave conditions have been reduced. The Precision Trimmer blade, a single-blade built into the back of the cartridge, allows men to easily trim sideburns, shave under the nose, and shape facial hair. That’s a great shave.

How long will the Gillette Fusion Power cartridge last?
How long a razor cartridge lasts varies from person to person, as it is dependent on many variables such as beard toughness and thickness, beard preparation, shaving hatbits, and skin sensitivity. The Gillette Fusion Power Cartridges have an Indicator® lubricating strip that will provide you with a visual cue — it fades to white — when shave conditions have been reduced. When this happens, you may want to consider changing the blade on your razor.
Will the Gillette Fusion Power cartridge fit any other razors on the market?
The Gillette Fusion Power cartridge features a razor blade that fits on any Gillette Fusion, Fusion ProGlide, or Fusion ProGlide Power handle. All Fusion cartridges can be used with all Fusion handles.
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, consider changing 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®.
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 regrow completely, it will return to its former state.
In what direction should I shave to achieve Gillette’s best shave?
Men’s facial hair tends to grow in different directions. Start by shaving with light, gentle strokes with the grain. Then, if necessary, go against the grain for a close shave.
What is the difference between disposable and refillable razors?
The entire 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 are the differences between single, double, triple and 5-blade razors? 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 Sensor Excel®, and even more so to 5-blade systems such as Gillette Fusion ProGlide. But the number of blades alone does not ensure a superior shave. The 5-blade shaving surface of Fusion ProGlide Manual and Fusion ProGlide Power features progressive blade alignment, an advanced blade coating process and a flexible comfort guard, which collectively provide Gillette’s most comfortable 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 and allow this area to soak up as much lather as possible. When shaving, don’t apply too much pressure.
