FAQ


FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


What’s the difference between a Gillette MACH3 razor and a Gillette Fusion5 razor?
The Gillette MACH3 has 3 blades while the Gillette Fusion5 has 5 blades and a precision trimmer.
What are Microfins, and what do they do?
The Gillette Fusion5 razor features ultra-soft skin guards consisting of 15 thinner, more flexible Microfins. These Microfins precede the blades and smooth out the skin before the first blade cuts the first hair. So you get a close, comfortable shave.
What does an Indicator Lubricating Strip do?
An Indicator Lubricating Strip is a thin strip that sits at the top of your razor, releasing lubricants over time, providing a great glide. When you are no longer getting an optimal shave, the Indicator Lubricating Strip fades to white, indicating that it might be time to change the blade.
Will Gillette Fusion5 razor blade refills fit any other razors on the market?
Yes, all Fusion5 blades fit all Fusion5 and Fusion5 Power razors.

5 Blade with yellow comfort strips.

I bought a pack of these to try and the yellow strip sticks to anything it comes in contact with after one use. Set the razor down on a ceramic tile shelf in my shower and had to pru it off the next day. Its not stuck just a little bit but glued down and the strip pulls off when trying to remove it from the tile. I tried to call the 800 445 5388 number just to ask about it an it immediately goes to a fast busy and its been that way all day.

No, I do not recommend this product.

We always want the blades to last as long as possible and the lubrastrip is a big part of that. When you store your razor, make sure its in it's organizer to so air can circulate around the lubrastrip/cartridge after use. If you don't have an organizer, please store the razor face up and don’t store it face-down on the shower ledge, or with the lubrastrip in direct contact with any surface. Also, be sure to keep your razor/replacement cartridges away from direct contact with water when not in use and rinse blades lightly after use. Extensive rinsing will wear your lubrastrip down faster. Gently shake off excess moisture after rinsing the blades and let air dry. We would be happy to help with this. When you have a moment give us a call at 800-445-5388.

Close shave but dull trimmers

Purchased my first monthly set of 4 Fusion blades. Being in my 50s I've used every blade out there and Gillette is a good one but these trimmers in this batch flat out sucked! Hardly any edge on them and so far recessed into the top plastic that they are practically useless for trimming. I like that they produce these in New England with US labor but can you step up this trimmer so it functions better? Other brands work far better at this basic task.

No, I do not recommend this product.

No matter the blade type or the batch it was made in, we'd want you to get the very best in shaving from every cartridge. Sorry to hear these trimmers didn't meet our high standards of quality, we'll be sure to share your unique experience within our team. Whenever you're ready to use the edging blade on the top of the cartridge, remember to flip the entire razor face up and shave the opposite direction the blades are pointing. Clean lines and clear edges, along with your closest shave, are just around the corner for you. If you're having trouble getting the results you'd expect, give our team a call at (800) 445- 5388 for additional help.
