View larger Gillette Fusion ProGlide Silvertouch Power Razor
Even the toughest men can have sensitive skin. That’s why Gillette created Fusion ProGlide Silvertouch – Gillette’s gentlest shave, incredible on sensitive skin (among those with a preference, in manual and power respectively).
ProGlide’s reengineered Low Cutting Force Blades feature Gillette’s thinnest, finest edges (first four blades vs. Fusion) with advanced anti-friction coating to cut effortlessly through hair with less tug and pull (vs. Fusion). That means more skin comfort. The innovative Microcomb, exclusive to the Fusion ProGlide Power razor, helps guide stubble to the blades.
The Fusion ProGlide Silvertouch Power’s on-board battery delivers soothing Micropulses, which help reduce friction and increase razor glide, helping the razor move effortlessly so you’ll barely feel the blades. A Blade Stabilizer maintains optimal blade spacing for comfort, enabling the blades to adjust to the contours of your face. A Streamlined Comfort Guard channels excess shave prep to produce optimal blade contact, stretching the skin for a close, comfortable shave. And ProGlide’s Enhanced Lubrastrip is infused with mineral oil and lubricating polymers that allow the razor to move smoothly over skin, even on repeat strokes.
(Silvertouch is a handle variant color. All ProGlide razors perform the same.)

Frequently Asked Questions
What makes Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power better than Gillette Fusion Power?
Fusion ProGlide is Gillette’s best shave. It incorporates years of technological innovation for Gillette’s most advanced blade ever. Gillette Fusion ProGlide and Fusion ProGlide Power share the same core technology: thinner, finer blades (the first four blades vs. Fusion) that glide through the hair for less tug and pull (vs. Fusion), a low-resistance coating, and the Precision Trimmer Blade. In addition:
The Streamlined Comfort Guard with channels to help clear away excess shave prep for a closer shave.The MicroComb, found exclusively on the Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power, helps guide hair to the blade.
How does the Gillette Fusion ProGlide handle compare with the Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power handle?
The Fusion ProGlide Power now has ergonomic side grips for better handling.
What’s the microchip and how does it work?
A battery-powered razor delivers an optimal shave when the voltage and frequency remain consistent, shave after shave. Over the lifetime of the battery, the voltage can weaken, reducing frequency and therefore performance. The microchip maintains constant voltage and frequency over the lifetime of the battery, delivering consistent product performance every time you shave.
How does the low-battery indicator light work?
When a battery reaches a certain level, the oscillation frequency declines and the system is no longer capable of delivering the optimal shave. The microchip inside Gillette Fusion ProGlide senses when the battery is approaching this level, and the low-battery indicator light begins to flash, signaling that it’s time to change the AAA battery.
What’s the automatic shutoff feature?
The automatic shutoff feature turns the razor off after roughly eight minutes of continuous operation. This feature protects the battery if the razor is accidentally activated, which is especially possible when traveling.
How does movement of the razor give men a better shave?
With battery-powered razors, Gillette opened a new chapter in wet shaving. The addition of oscillation to Gillette wet shaving systems delivers soothing Micropulses with comfort so incredible, you’ll barely feel the blades. Fusion ProGlide is Gillette’s most comfortable shave.
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. Using the Precision Trimmer Blade with or without power is an individual choice.
What type of battery does Gillette Fusion ProGlide use? How long does it last?
Gillette Fusion ProGlide Silvertouch uses a AAA battery. With the low-battery indicator light, Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power will let you know when it’s time to change the battery. Assuming average shaving, the battery should last approximately three to six months.
How long will the Gillette Fusion ProGlide Silvertouch cartridge last?
How long a razor cartridge lasts depends on many variables such as beard toughness and thickness, beard preparation, shaving habits, and skin sensitivity. The Gillette Fusion ProGlide’s reformulated Indicator Lubricating Strip 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 consider changing your cartridge to get an optimal shave.
What are thinner, finer blades, and how will they improve my shave?
Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power and ProGlide Manual razors have been engineered with Gillette’s thinnest blades ever (the first four blades vs. Fusion), to glide through hair with less tug and pull (vs. Fusion).
How was the Precision Trimmer improved over the Fusion?
The blade was enhanced, and anti-clogging rinse slots were added.
What is the Streamlined Comfort Guard with channels, and what are its benefits?
Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power features a Streamlined Comfort Guard. The soft, flexible material surrounds the Microfins, creating an outer edge that wraps around the sides of the cartridge and channels away excess shave prep, for optimal blade contact.
Have there been any enhancements to the Lubrastrip?
Yes. It contains more lubricants and a touch of mineral oil.
Will the Gillette Fusion ProGlide cartridge fit any other razors on the market?
The Gillette Fusion ProGlide cartridge features a new razor blade that fits on any Gillette Fusion, Fusion Power, or Fusion ProGlide handle.
