PLEASANTLY SURPRISED: Let me first start off by saying that I am a black male who does not use razors often to shave because I suffer from razor bumps. I usually use electric shavers for the reason of razor bumps. So, when I received the Fusion ProGlide Power with NEW FlexBall Handle Technology by Gillette I was a little skeptical.
When I received the product in the mail, I decided to give it a try. First thing first, the directions on using the new product are terrible. No proper directions were given at all; however, it is shaving so I guess they assumed that all men shaved before. After I used the product, I have to admit that I experienced a very close shave. This was one of the closest shave I had in a long time. Experiencing a close shave was not my concern, but the development of razors bumps. To my surprise, two days after shaving, no razor bumps. This is a pleasant surprise and I will probably continue to use the product. 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. The innovative MicroComb, exclusive to Fusion ProGlide SilverTouch Power, helps guide stubble to the blades. 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 FlexBall 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 Power better than Gillette Fusion Power? The Fusion ProGlide Power family is Gillette’s best shave. The handle features FlexBall Technology that responds to contours for a great shave, even over the trickiest areas. Gillette Fusion ProGlide and Fusion ProGlide Power share the same core technology: thinner, finer razor blades (the first 4 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 close shave The MicroComb, found exclusively on the Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power, helps guide hair to the blade 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? The microchip inside Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power senses when the battery is approaching a low 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 8 minutes of continuous operation. This feature protects the battery if the razor is accidentally activated, which comes in handy when traveling. How does movement of the razor give men a better shave? Soothing Micropulses help reduce friction and increase razor glide. With comfort so incredible, you’ll barely feel the blades. 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 Power use? Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power uses a AAA battery. How long will the Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power 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 Power’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. Will Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power razor blade refills fit any other razors on the market? Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power razor blade refills fit any Gillette Fusion or Gillette Fusion ProGlide handle, including those featuring Power and FlexBall Technology.
