FAQ

What is FlexBall Technology?
Handles featuring FlexBall Technology allow the blades to respond to the contours of your face. This means a close shave with fewer missed hairs (vs. Fusion5 in a single stroke over the contours).

What makes Gillette Fusion5 ProGlide better than Gillette Fusion5?
The handle features FlexBall Technology that responds to contours for a great shave, even over the trickiest areas.

How long will the Gillette Fusion5 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 Fusion5 ProGlide’s reformulated Indicator® Lubricating Strip (vs. Fusion5) 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.

How was the Precision Trimmer improved over the Fusion5?
The blade was enhanced and anti-clogging rinse slots were added.

What is the Streamlined Comfort Guard, and what are its benefits?
Gillette Fusion5 ProGlide 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 Fusion5?
Yes. It contains more lubricants and a touch of mineral oil.

Will Gillette Fusion5 ProGlide razor blade refills fit any other razors on the market?
Yes, all Fusion5 blades fit all Fusion5 and Fusion5 Power razors.

I bought this razor and the blades are already rusted. Used to have the Mach 3 and they never once rusted.

No, I do not recommend this product.

For the years you've trusted us with your shave, we've continued working to improve the quality you've come to expect from us. All of our blades, Fusion Proglide included, have a coating which makes them extremely resistant to rust. Keep in mind, like any steel, the blades can rust if they're stored in hot, moist conditions during shipment or handling. Alternatively, rust may also happen if blades are kept in these same conditions between uses. For the best from your blades, consider storing them in a cool dry area away from cleaners and moisture when not in use. This practice will help prevent rust from occurring in the future and set you up for many great shaves to come. If you'd like to share any additional details about this with our Product Care Team, feel welcome to reach out to (800)445-5388 when you're free.

Great value for price

I had sensitive skin and I hated to shave before. Once I bought this and started using it. I love to shave and do it everyday now.

Yes, I recommend this product!
