  2. How is Gillette changing its operations as a response to COVID-19?

    Everything we do to help starts with our people. To allow us to continue making, packing and shipping the products needed by people on the front lines and by consumers around the world during this crisis, our manufacturing facilities remain operational. With guidance from medical professionals, we’re constantly evaluating and updating the robust measures already in place to keep everyone safe at work. This includes entrance screening and temperature scans, physical distancing, and we’ve dramatically increased the frequency and rigor of cleaning and sanitization of all production areas.

    We are also doing our part to help relief efforts. Read more here.

  3. Does shaving prevent COVID-19?

    No, it is important to note that there is no information that indicates shaving prevents COVID-19. The CDC did issue guidance related to shaving facial hair for those workers who wear tight-fitting respirators and masks – the intent of this guidance is to ensure the masks have a tight seal. For official guidance related to COVID-19, we encourage you to visit the CDC’s website at

  6. What's the difference between Gillette Power razors and non-Power razors?

    Gillette makes power razors that have the same core elements as a manual razor, but will vibrate when turned on. The power razors require a AAA battery and can be activated by pushing the power button on the handle. The power razor will automatically shut off after 8 minutes, but can be turned on again. All power razors are Shower-safe®. Additionally, all power razor cartridges are interchangeable with their base manual cartridge, and in the case of the Fusion family of razors (Fusion, ProGlide, and Styler), all Fusion cartridges will fit all Fusion handles. Learn which blades are compatible with your handle.

  8. Which Gillette razor is the best for shaving and styling a beard?

    Any Gillette razor is capable of helping you manage your beard, but using a more advanced razor makes the job that much easier. A multiblade shaving system, such as the Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power Razor with FlexBall™ Technology, has blades spaced closer together to help reduce the pressure on each blade for more comfort and less irritation.

    If you need to do fine detail work on your beard, take a look at the Gillette Proglide Styler—Beard Trimmer & Power Razor. This 3-in-1 styler trims evenly, shaves closely, and edges accurately with a Braun®-engineered power trimmer designed for maneuverability and precision.

    To get ideas and inspiration for sculpting the beard you want, check out our Gillette facial-hair styling videos.
