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.

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.

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!
