Clean shave, little to no skin irritations, expensive replacement cartridges.
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 ProGlide men’s razor has reengineered Low Cutting Force Razor Blades that feature thinner, finer edges (first four blades vs. Fusion) with advanced low-resistance coating to cut effortlessly through hair with less tug and pull (vs. Fusion). A Blade Stabilizer maintains optimal razor blade spacing for comfort, allowing the blades to adjust to the contours of a man’s face. Its streamlined Comfort Guard channels excess shave prep to produce optimal blade contact, stretching the skin for a close, comfortable shave. Its Enhanced Lubrastrip (vs. Fusion) is infused with mineral oil and lubricating polymers to allow the razor to move smoothly over skin, even on repeat strokes.
