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.

Upgraded Blades

Since they upgraded the blades, they do not shave the same. Leave well enough alone. (if it's not broke don't fix it or attempt to fix it!)

No, I do not recommend this product.

We have updated the Fusion5 blades to feature the same low cutting force found within our ProGlide and ProShield blades. With this update, we expect you have a smoother, closer shave than before. We're sorry to learn this wasn't your experience and would like to help. Please call us directly at 800-445-5388.
