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.

Worth it

I do get 30 good shaves from this razor. I set my reminder to change the blade once a month and it has served me fine. Great razor. Great blades. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Yes, I recommend this product!

Bring Back The Fusion Proglide

The Fusion Proglide 5 is inferior to the discontinued Fusion Proglide for manual razors. Proglide 5 is essentially the old Fusion Proglide for power razors renamed. Bring back the Fusion Proglide.

No, I do not recommend this product.

Guys are unique, and have different preferences and needs when it comes to their style and skin. That’s why Gillette offers the widest range of razor options, so that every guy can get a comfortable shave at a comfortable price, regardless of his needs. We use top-grade steel and enhance our blades with high-tech coatings which help them cut better and last longer. We are also always upgrading our products. When we upgraded the Proglide we changed the last 3 blades in the cartridge to upgraded Low Contact Force blade. When we did this we introduced the Gillette with the 5 traditional blades you prefer. We did this for the customers who prefer the traditional Gillette blades. We would like to learn more about your experience. If you would like to share more please give us a call at (800) 445-5388. We're always here to help.
