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 does the Gillette Fusion5™ ProGlide handle compare with the Gillette Fusion5™ handle?
The Fusion5™ ProGlide handle now has FlexBall Technology, plus ergonomic side grips for incredible handling.

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.

What are thinner, finer blades, and how will they improve my shave?
Gillette Fusion5™ ProGlide Power and ProGlide Manual men’s razors have been engineered with Gillette’s thinnest, finest blades to glide through hair with less tug and pull*.

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.

Great shave

This razor provides a great shave but cannot figure out the purpose of battery. No instructions included with razor. Also did notice blades are quite expensive.

Yes, I recommend this product!

The battery-powered motor inside the handle stimulates skin and hair with micro-pulsations which help reduce friction and increase razor glide. If you have any other questions, concerns or comments, please feel free to reach out at (800) 445-5388.
