This product worked on three different types of facial hair growth and was exactly as described with its accuracy on level of hair removal. There were no scrapes to be found and the handle fits perfectly regardless of left/right use and how the man likes to shave directionally.
I purchased a full set as this was such a hit with the family.
This looks very similar to the previous Fusion razors, but it feels different; the handle is a bit thinner and perhaps a bit heavier, and it fits comfortably in the hand. I didn’t get a noticeably closer shave than I did with my previous Fusion razor, but it is a lot more comfortable shave. I can’t tell if the noticeable improvement is due to the Flexball feature, which lets the blade pivot from side to side in addition to back and forth, or the Proglide blade, which according to the Amazon description is “thinner, finer” with a “low-resistance coating,” a streamlined Comfort Guard, and an enhanced lubricating strip.
A Blade Stabilizer maintains optimal blade spacing for comfort, while allowing the blades to respond to the contours of a man’s face. Plus, the Streamlined Comfort Guard channels excess shaving cream to produce optimal blade contact, stretching the skin for a close, comfortable shave. And the razor’s Enhanced Lubrastrip (vs. Fusion) is infused with mineral oil and lubricating polymers that allow the Gillette Fusion ProGlide to move smoothly over skin, even on repeat strokes.
(SilverTouch is a handle variant color. All ProGlide razors perform the same.)

What is FlexBallTM Technology?
Handles featuring FlexBall Technology allow the blades to respond to the contours of your face for Gillette’s best shave. This means a close shave with fewer missed hairs (vs. Fusion in a single stroke over the contours).
What makes Gillette Fusion ProGlide SilverTouch better than Gillette Fusion?
The Fusion ProGlide SilverTouch family is Gillette’s best shave. The handle features FlexBall Technology that responds to contours for a great shave, even over the trickiest areas.
How does the Gillette Fusion ProGlide SilverTouch handle compare with the Gillette Fusion handle?
The Fusion ProGlide SilverTouch now has FlexBall Technology that responds to contours for Gillette’s best shave, plus ergonomic side grips for incredible handling.
How long will the Gillette Fusion 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 Fusion ProGlide SilverTouch’s reformulated Indicator Lubricating Strip (vs. Fusion) 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 Fusion ProGlide SilverTouch Power and ProGlide SilverTouch Manual men’s razors have been engineered with Gillette’s thinnest blades ever (the first 4 blades vs. Fusion) to glide through hair with less tug and pull (vs. Fusion).
How was the Precision Trimmer improved over the Fusion?
The razor blade was enhanced and anti-clogging rinse slots were added.
What is the Streamlined Comfort Guard, and what are its benefits?
Gillette Fusion ProGlide SilverTouch 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 Fusion?
Yes. It contains more lubricants and a touch of mineral oil.
Will Gillette Fusion ProGlide razor blade refills fit any other razors on the market?
Gillette Fusion ProGlide razor blade refills fit any Gillette Fusion or Gillette Fusion ProGlide handle, including those featuring Power and FlexBall Technology.
