GILLETTE PROGLIDE

This is the worst blade I have ever used in over 50years of shaving. I shave every day & this was like using a broken piece of glass. I bought a 12pack thinking they were better than the GILLETTE FUSION. I'm going back to the FUSION. Sorry for the bad review, just my opinion.

No, I do not recommend this product.

We always want you to get the best shave Bill, and we are sorry to hear about your recent experience. No matter which blade you use your shave should be smooth and comfortable. There are some technical differences in the two blades, and we would consider the Proglide an update, but what works best for your beard is what works best for your beard. With every Gillette shave, we always recommend shaving during or after a shower, using a preshave, taking short strokes, and moisturizing afterward. We would love to help get you into a product that works for your needs and gather some information about those blades Bill. When you have a moment give us a call at 800-445-5388.

Great Razors

I was a big fan of the Mach 3 turbo until they were discontinued. Looking around I found these and thought Id give them a try and very happy I did. No irritation and a close comfortable shave. Maybe better then the Mach 3 turbo. Hopefully you guys keep these around for a long time. Gellette is the best a man can get

Yes, I recommend this product!

Awesome Razor

I been using it for like around 7 years. It's one of the best shavers I've bought. And still buy. One thing though, somehow I lost the handle and I had a lot of refills left so I went to the store to see if I could just buy the handle. Or even with one refill but non available. I had to buy a new set with more refills. I was wondering if is there any way to buy just the handle? Thank you

Yes, I recommend this product!
