Product FAQs

What makes Gillette Fusion® ProGlide™ better than Gillette Fusion® ?
What makes Fusion ProGlide better than Fusion is technological innovation. The razor has been reengineered and redesigned to create Gillette's Most Comfortable Shave.

Gillette Fusion ProGlide shares the same core technology as Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power™: thinner, finer shaving blades, a low resistance coating and the redesigned Precision Trimmer Blade. In addition to this:

  • The improved blade stabilizer helps maintain precise blade spacing for optimal comfort.
  • The redesigned handle now has larger, more ergonomic grips for better control.
  • The enhanced Lubrastrip™ is now larger, with more lubricants and a touch of mineral oil.
  • The redesigned precision trimmer now features an improved razor blade and anti-clogging rinse slots.
  • The streamlined comfort guard offers channels to help clear away excess shave prep.

Together, these technologies combine to create Gillette's Most Comfortable Shave.

How does the Gillette® Fusion® ProGlide™ handle compare with the Gillette Fusion handle?
The Fusion ProGlide now has ergonomic side grips for better handling.

How long will the Gillette® Fusion® ProGlide™ cartridge last?
How long a cartridge lasts varies from person to person, as it is dependent on many variables such as beard toughness and thickness, beard preparation, shaving habits, and skin sensitivity. The Gillette Fusion ProGlide's reformulated Indicator Lubrastrip™ 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 change your cartridge for a more comfortable shave.

What are thinner, finer blades and how will they improve my shave? Gillette® Fusion® ProGlide™ has 5 blades spaced closer together, forming an advanced shaving surface. The razor blades are thinner than those of Fusion–a design that allows the blades to be even more flexible.

How was the Precision Trimmer redesigned?
The blade was improved and anti-clogging rinse slots were added.

What is the Streamlined Comfort Guard with channels? What are the benefits of the Streamlined Comfort Guard?
Gillette® Fusion® ProGlide™ 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 that clear away excess shave prep. This Streamlined Comfort Guard follows the contours of your face to help the shaving surface of the razor comfortably shave close.

Have there been any enhancements to the lubrication strip?
Yes. It now 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 razor blade that fits on any Gillette Fusion, Fusion ProGlide or Fusion ProGlide Power™ handle.

Shaving FAQs

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, be sure to change 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 re-grow completely, it will return to its former state.

In what direction should I shave to achieve the 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 an even closer shave.

What is the difference between disposable and refillable razors?
The entire shaving 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 is the difference between a single, double, triple and 5-blade razor? 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 SensorExcel®, 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 Power™ features progressive blade alignment, patented blade coating process and a flexible comfort guard which collectively provide Gillette's best 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 or shaving cream and allow this area to soak up as much lather as possible. When shaving, don't apply too much pressure. Gillette® Fusion® ProGlide's™ Precision Trimmer is really useful when shaving under the nose.

Size: 1 Razor, 2 Cartridges
I started using Gillette Fusion ProGlide Manual about ten days ago, thanks to a massive testing and marketing project carried on by Procter&Gamble. After around ten shaves I can firmly say that it’s the best manual razor I’ve ever used (still I’ve always used Gillette Manual razors). The most clear gain concerns the number of effective shaves without any performance breakedown with one single head. At the tenth shave there’s still no evidence of skin irritation and green smoothing bar fade. I guess I will be able to use it for five further shaves. The recharging heads are a bit expensive somehow I ‘m sure they do worth the purchase.

HASH(0xa6cee2f4) out of 5 stars The Gillette Fusion line's latest incarnation. June 1 2010
By Justo Roteta - Published on Amazon.com
Size: 1 Razor, 2 Cartridges
When the original (manual) Fusion shaving system was introduced in 2005, it was truly a major improvement over any and all previously available razors. It was (and still is) a truly revolutionary, advanced and innovative shaving system that made shaving virtually painless and hastle-free even for men with tough beards and/or sensitive skin. The ProGlide is the latest incarnation of the Fusion and it does offer some advantages over the original Fusion but not nearly enough to justify switching over (especially when considering that the replacement cartridges will be even more expensive than the manual Fusion's!). When I shaved my head with the ProGlide, I honestly noticed NO difference whatsoever (neither better nor worse) than when I shave with the manual Fusion. When shaving my face, I did notice that the ProGlide DID do a slightly better job than the manual Fusion at shaving tricky and hard-to-reach areas (especially the moustache area just below the nostrils and around my Adam's apple) but this is probably because the ProGlide's cartridges are supposedly 15% thinner than the Fusion's. I should also point out that the ProGlide's handle feels more sturdy and offers a (somewhat) tighter grip than the (manual or Power) Fusion's and that the design is more elegant but (of course) beauty is in the eye of the beholder. The Bottom Line: Fusion ProGlide offers some minor improvements over the manual Fusion but nowherenear enough to justify upgrading to an even more expensive product when an already excellent one is available.

HASH(0xa6cee348) out of 5 stars Best Razor No Question July 22 2010
By GJMartinez - Published on Amazon.com
Size: 1 Razor, 2 Cartridges
This is the best razor I have ever owned to this day. The first day I grabbed the Fusion ProGlide with my hand I noticed a big difference in the handle. Just like everyone is saying you definitely feel a much more better grip in your hands. I was impressed when Gillette came out with the Fusion razor thinking wow this is the razor I will use forever, but when they came out with the Fusion ProGlide I was blown away. To this date I am STILL using the FIRST blade that came with the razor..... Yeah you heard right the FIRST BLADE. I bought it about 2 months ago and each time I shave it feels so good. No more irritations, no more having to feel that your beard is getting pulled, no more razor bumps at least for me. Once my beard grew back I shaved with my old razor the Gillette Fusion don't get me wrong it's a great product but after 4 to 5 times one shaves I started to notice all of the above I have mentioned. Especially the redness after I shaved half of my face. I switched to the Fusion ProGlide to finish the other half of my face and let me tell you it was the best feeling ever on my face it truly does glide. Like a hot knife cutting through a stick of butter. I use to hate shaving but with this new product from Gillette I enjoy shaving once again and most importantly this will save me a lot of money when buying the blades. They will last longer trust me on that. I recommend this Fusion ProGlide to anyone.

HASH(0xa6cee780) out of 5 stars Truth In Advertising July 14 2010
By TXP - Published on Amazon.com
Size: 1 Razor, 2 Cartridges
As one of many men who fight a constant battle with razor bumps, friction (especially on the neck) is the enemy. So I've tried practically every razor on the market in search of something which doesn't cause irritation. Simply put, this razor has proven to be the best I've ever used. Unlike most razors, it does exactly what it claims to do: glides across the face and neck without even a hint of friction or irritation. Thus, it's now my razor of choice.

That said, the ProGlide isn't cheap. In fact, at roughly three dollars a cartridge the cost of ownership is fairly outrageous. So I wouldn't necessarily recommend it for everyone -- the second-best razor I've found is the King Of Shaves Azor, which is FAR less expensive (it can be bought online from the brand's site). But for those with sensitive skin, this is absolutely, positively the way to go.

HASH(0xa6ceeb4c) out of 5 stars The Best to Date June 16 2010
By HB - Published on Amazon.com
Size: 1 Razor, 2 Cartridges
The last Fusion I gave up on because it gave me razor burn. I also gave up on the battery powered version of Gillette with this new Proglide as I found, with the last Fusion (and battery powered before it) that the vibrations from the battery powered razors, while feeling good, doesn't give me the control of the razor as well as the manual razor.

This is as smooth and in my opinion, smoother than the last Fusion without absolutely NO razor burn.

As I have sensitive skin, I use Lab Series Gel which is totally hydrophillic and in combination with the new Proglide I can now say I have found the perfect combination for those of us with sensitive skin and want the closest shave possible.

HASH(0xa6ceec30) out of 5 stars Gillettes New Razor - I Like It July 11 2013
By Arthur Senior - Published on Amazon.com
Size: 1 Razor, 2 Cartridges
One of the hardest things is finding a quality razor that will work for me. I've tried disposables, they break. I have tried the 2-blade razors, but they dont work for my beared. I have a thick wire like hair and if you cut it off, cleaned it, and slapped it on a brush, you could clean counters with it. My last razor was the Gillette Mach 3, which is a very good razor, it will shave in half the time of smaller razors. But because the blade size is about the same, it tends to yank on my hair leaving a bleeding spot or worse, a pimple!

PROS: Razor glides smoother on my face, no more pulling my hair, and no more skin irritation! Handle and blade seems to be made of quality, I like the styling of the razor and the rubber grips top and bottom of handle. Razor leaves enough lather on your face so that you can make a couple of passes.

CONS: Because of the tighter distance between each blade, this razeor cloggs easily and is not easy to unclog. My technique that works is to put the razor in a sink full of water and shake it vigorously and that will remove the hair. Also consider shaving every day to every other day, don't let your hair go for more then 2 days as this razor won't work for those of you who let their face go for a week.

CONCLUSION: I feel that this is a quality razor, its got to be the best one I have tried so far. The main important thing is it doesn't pull my hair out making me bleed, nor does it cause any skin irritation such as a bad razor or electric shaver. However, the clogging thing is an issue as is the cost of the refill cartridges. The razor itself was 15 dollars at the store, but refills which is only a pack of 4 costs 19.00 dollars at the store. Online you can get a pack of 8 for like 28 dollars.
