FAQ

What is ProShield Lubrication?
Unlike other razors, ProShield is our first razor with lubrication before and after the blades to shield skin from irritation while you shave.

What makes Fusion5™ ProShield better than Fusion5?
With lubrication before and after the blades, ProShield Lubrication shields skin while you shave. Its handle features FlexBall Technology that responds to contours and gets virtually every hair.

How should I store my Proshield Razor?
For best results, do not store face down when wet. It is best to store the razor in its special holder after the shave or let it dry in an upright position.

What is the Precision Trimmer?
The ProShield Precision Trimmer, on the back of the blades, features an enhanced blade and anti-clogging rinse slots—perfect for hard-to-reach areas and styling facial hair.

Will ProShield blade refills fit any other Gillette handles?
Yes, all Fusion5 blades fit all Fusion5 and Fusion5 Power razors.

Should I still use a shave gel product with the ProShield razor?
Yes. Using a non-drying shave gel, like Fusion5 ProGlide Sensitive 2-in-1 Shave Gel, softens hair and helps defend against nicks and cuts.

A close, convenient shave every time

I started shaving in 7th grade and back then I just had to worry about a few wimpy hairs above my upper lip. Now I'm outta highschool and I have places to be and people I want to impress plus a few more hairs than what I originally sported in 7th grade. Shaving to me was never something I dreaded (luckily I don't seem to have very sensitive skin and I am not too susceptible to bumps or ingrown hairs) but at the same time it wasn't something I enjoyed much either. This began to change though when one day I started getting curious and I wanted to adventure outside of some of the razors I was using (mostly disposables like the Gillette Sensor 2 which is a very nice disposable but not my preferred regular shaver and a couple cartridge razors from Gillette competitors that I had been gifted by family) I tried a safety razor and while I understand the appeal it just isn't for me. While you can get a real nice shave with one it takes practice to not nick yourself and even more practice to get proficient and consistent with one and even upon becoming proficient with one it is still much more time consuming shaving with a safety razor than going with a cartridge/disposable razor. Having had that experience I decided maybe I should look back towards cartridge razors but instead try a different brand and that's when I ran into the Proshield. The shave I get from this razor is amazing. It's quick and close and the 5 blades means there is never a need for more than 1 pass which saves so much time I'd normally spend doing multiple passes with a safety razor to get a similar close shave. The lubrication strips are a nice addition and help make the shave even more refreshing and can be a nice way to tell about how worn out your cartridge is. The handle has a little bit of weight to it which not only makes it feel high quality but also makes it so I don't need to apply much pressure at all and I can just let the razor do its job. Personally I am very satisfied with how much use I get out of each cartridge but this will vary from individual to individual based on your shaving habits, how well you take care of your cartridge, and in general just when you like to swap it out. Just be sure to keep your cartridge nice and clean and to store your razor in a good spot after you shave. Overall this razor has definitely earned its spot in my shaving routine and has made shaving much more enjoyable for me as well as giving me a quicker, closer, and more refreshing shave each and every time.

Yes, I recommend this product!
