FAQ


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.

Bring Back The Fusion Proglide

The Fusion Proglide 5 is inferior to the discontinued Fusion Proglide for manual razors. Proglide 5 is essentially the old Fusion Proglide for power razors renamed. Bring back the Fusion Proglide.

No, I do not recommend this product.

Guys are unique, and have different preferences and needs when it comes to their style and skin. That’s why Gillette offers the widest range of razor options, so that every guy can get a comfortable shave at a comfortable price, regardless of his needs. We use top-grade steel and enhance our blades with high-tech coatings which help them cut better and last longer. We are also always upgrading our products. When we upgraded the Proglide we changed the last 3 blades in the cartridge to upgraded Low Contact Force blade. When we did this we introduced the Gillette with the 5 traditional blades you prefer. We did this for the customers who prefer the traditional Gillette blades. We would like to learn more about your experience. If you would like to share more please give us a call at (800) 445-5388. We're always here to help.

I got 3 clean shaves from this blade!

I got 3 clean shaves from this blade! Not 30 shaves. Not worth the money! I'm a life time user of Gillette products. I'm very disappointed in this product. Looking for refund.

No, I do not recommend this product.

Gillette Response from Gillette 03/19/19

Your loyalty over the years is something we cherish and appreciate. With every blade you purchase, we want you to get great life and smooth shaves. Whether you've been shaving for a few years or you're just starting out, you might find some tips provided here useful, if you don’t already know about them. Be sure to wash the area with warm water and mild soap to help remove natural oils and sweat. This also makes hair softer and easier to cut. The best time to shave is right after a hot shower! Apply plenty of shaving gel, foam or cream to soften the beard hair and reduce friction. Also, be sure to shave in the direction of hair growth for a more comfortable shave, or against the direction of growth for an even smoother shave. Because your satisfaction is important to us, please give us a call at (800) 445-5388. We're always here to help.

long lastingness

I am amazed when people say they can get up to two months on a replacement blade. My beard is tough. I can get only 2-3 decent shaves per blade. They dull quickly for the price.

Yes, I recommend this product!

We always want you to receive the best shaves and work hard to ensure our products provide smooth, comfortable shaves. There are a few factors that can impact the blade's longevity including how tough and thick your hair is, how often you shave, and how the blades are rinsed. Shave prep, such as shaving gel or foam, and shaving right after a shower can soften your hair and help your blades last longer. At the end of every shave, rinse the blade thoroughly and shake off excess water before storing. Do not wipe the blade and do not tap your razor against a hard surface.
