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.

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. If you would like to share more about your experience, please feel welcome to call us at (800) 445-5388.
