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.

Bad power switch

I have had three Proglide power razors and love the shave but power switch or battery connection goes bad. Light just flickers or won't work at all. Razor has started on it's own in case and had to remove battery to get it to stop.

Yes, I recommend this product!

We don't expect ghosts to turn your Fusion5 Power Razor on and off during this spooky season. Make sure you're using a fresh battery and ensure it's inserted correctly with the cap screwed on tight. That may get the razor to stop starting up randomly. We'd like to learn more. Call us at 800-445-5388 so that we can learn more.

Comparison

I am switching from an electric razor and tried a Gillette Fusion 5 and Harry's. They both gave a smooth shave but the gillette gave me a nick and I had hair pulls. No issues with Harry's.

No, I do not recommend this product.

By comparison, after using our Fusion5 razor, you should be 100% less hair than when you started. To get those results, soften your hair and skin by using warm water and your choice of pre-shave. This will reduce pull and provide you a much better experience. Reports like yours are something we take quite seriously, and we'd like to learn more. Call us at 800-445-5388.

Paying for a Mistake

Due to the higher cost of Gillette I tried Harry's razors and was disappointed with them. Back to Gillette I went. Instead of my customary ProGlide I bought Fusion because of the lower price.. Terrible mistake -- Harry's performed better cost-wise. IF I ever again buy Gillette it will NOT be Fusion.

No, I do not recommend this product.
