  4. Which Gillette razor is the best for shaving and styling a beard?

    Any Gillette razor is capable of helping you manage your beard, but using a more advanced razor makes the job that much easier.A multiblade shaving system, such as theFusion5® Proshield™ Razor with Flexball™ Technology , has blades spaced closer together to help reduce the pressure on each blade for more comfort and less irritation.

    If you need to do fine detail work on your beard, take a look at theGillette Proglide Styler—Beard Trimmer & Power Razor.This 3-in-1 styler trims evenly, shaves closely, and edges accurately with a Braun®-engineered power trimmer designed for maneuverability and precision.
