Gillette® Fusion® Phenom™ is an advanced shaving system with a design that provides outstanding performance when using either side of the razor. On the front of the cartridge, Gillette Fusion Manual features blades spaced closer together to form a shaving surface technology. This design distributes the shaving force across the blades to help reduce pressure, with more comfort and less irritation than MACH3®. That's a great shave. But Gillette now has a razor that turns shaving into gliding! It's called the Gillette® Fusion® ProGlide®.

Product FAQs

What makes Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power better than Gillette Fusion Power?
What makes Fusion ProGlide better than Gillette Fusion is technological innovation. The razor has been reengineered and redesigned to create Gillette's Most Comfortable Shave.†

Gillette Fusion ProGlide shares the same core technology as Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power: thinner, finer shaving blades*, a low resistance coating and the redesigned Precision Trimmer Blade. In addition to this:

  • The blade stabilizer helps maintain precise blade spacing for optimal comfort.
  • The redesigned handle has larger, more ergonomic grips for better control.
  • The enhanced Lubrastrip is larger, with more lubricants and a touch of mineral oil.
  • The redesigned precision trimmer features an improved razor blade and anti-clogging rinse slots.
  • The streamlined comfort guard offers channels to help clear away excess shave prep.

Together, these technologies combine to create Gillette's Most Comfortable Shave.

How does the Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power handle compare with the Gillette Fusion Power handle?
The Fusion ProGlide Power now has ergonomic side grips for better handling.

What is the microchip and how does it work?
A battery-powered razor delivers an optimal shave when the voltage and frequency remain consistent shave after shave. Over the lifetime of the battery, the voltage can weaken, reducing frequency and therefore performance. The microchip maintains constant voltage and frequency over the lifetime of the battery, delivering consistent product performance every time you shave.

How does the Low-Battery Indicator Light work?
When a battery reaches a certain level, the oscillation frequency declines and the system is no longer capable of delivering the optimal shave. The microchip inside Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power senses when the battery is approaching this level. When this happens, the Low-Battery Indicator Light begins to flash, signaling that it's time to change the AAA battery.

What is the Automatic Shut-Off feature?
The Automatic Shut-Off feature turns the razor off after roughly 8 minutes of continuous operation. This feature protects the battery if the razor is accidentally activated, especially when traveling.

How does movement of the razor give men a better shave?
With battery-powered razors, Gillette opened a new chapter in wet shaving. The addition of oscillation to Gillette wet shaving systems delivers soothing micropulses with comfort so incredible; you'll barely feel the blades. Fusion ProGlide Power is Gillette's most comfortable shave.

For best results, should the power be turned on or off when using the Precision Trimmer Blade?
The Precision Trimmer Blade can be used with the power turned on or off. Preference varies from person to person. Using the Precision Trimmer Blade with or without power is an individual choice.

What type of battery does Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power use? How long does it last?
Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power utilizes a AAA battery. With the Low-Battery Indicator Light, Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power will let you know when it's time to change the battery. Assuming average shaving, the battery should last approximately 3–6 months.

Is it safe to shave with Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power in the shower?
Yes. Gillette Fusion Power is watertight and totally safe to use in wet environments.

Can I get electrocuted if Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power is submerged in water?
No. Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power is safe to use in water.

How long will the Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power cartridge last?
How long a razor cartridge lasts varies from person to person, as it is dependent on many variables such as beard toughness and thickness, beard preparation, shaving habits, and skin sensitivity. The Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power's reformulated INDICATOR® lubricating strip will provide you with a visual cue — it fades to white — when optimal shave conditions have been reduced. When this happens, you may want to change your cartridge for a more comfortable shave.

What are thinner, finer blades* and how will they improve my shave?
Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power razor has 5 blades spaced closer together, forming an advanced shaving surface. The razor blades are thinner* than those of Fusion–enabling the blades to cut effortlessly through the hair with less tug and pull.

How was the Precision Trimmer redesigned?
The blade was improved and anti-clogging rinse slots were added.

What is the Streamlined Comfort Guard with channels? What are the benefits of the Streamlined Comfort Guard?
Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power features a Streamlined Comfort Guard. The soft, flexible material surrounds the microfins, creating an outer edge that wraps around the sides of the cartridge and channels that clear away excess shave prep. This Streamlined Comfort Guard follows the contours of your face to help the shaving surface of the razor comfortably shave close.

Have there been any enhancements to the lubrication strip?
Yes. It now contains more lubricants and a touch of mineral oil.

Will the Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power cartridge fit any other razors on the market?
The Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power cartridge features a razor blade that fits on any Gillette Fusion, Fusion ProGlide or Fusion ProGlide Power handle.

Shaving FAQs

Is it better to use hot, cold, or warm water to shave?
Warm water is best for hydrating beard hair. Soaking in warm water softens hair and causes it to expand, making it 70% easier to cut.

What is the best way to avoid razor burn?
If the skin is not properly prepared before shaving or if the blade on your razor is dull, you are more likely to end up with razor burn. Make sure to hydrate hair in warm water for up to three minutes and apply plenty of shave gel. Also, be sure to change the blade on your razor at the first sign of dullness or discomfort.

Is it okay to let my girlfriend or wife borrow my men’s razor?
For both hygiene and performance, it's not a good idea to share your razor with your partner. Women have a much larger area to shave and you may find that after only a few shaves, your blade has dulled considerably; increasing the likelihood of nicks and cuts. Tell her to try a razor specifically designed for the way a woman shaves, such as Gillette Venus® Embrace®.

Does shaving make your hair grow back thicker?
Scientists at Gillette have conducted extensive testing on the effects shaving has on both male and female hair growth, texture and color. This testing has proven that shaving does not affect hair growth, color or texture. Shaving does, however, alter the tip shape of the regrown hair, which may initially change the way hair feels as it grows back. But if hair is left to re-grow completely, it will return to its former state.

In what direction should I shave to achieve the best shave?
Men's facial hair tends to grow in different directions. Start by shaving with light, gentle strokes with the grain. Then, if necessary, go against the grain for an even closer shave.

What is the difference between disposable and refillable razors?
The entire razor is discarded when you are through with a disposable razor. With a refillable razor, only the blade cartridge is replaced. Refillable razors like Gillette Fusion ProGlide and Gillette Fusion incorporate more advanced blade technology and ergonomics vs. most disposables for great control and a close comfortable shave.

What is the difference between a single, double, triple and 5-blade razor? Which is best?
Gillette's research has demonstrated that single blade technology, which has been applied since 1901, is demonstrably inferior to twin blade shaving systems such as Sensor Excel®, and even more so to 5-blade systems such as Gillette Fusion ProGlide. But the number of blades alone does not ensure a superior shave. The 5-blade shaving surface of Fusion ProGlide Manual and Fusion ProGlide Power features progressive blade alignment, an advanced blade coating process and a flexible comfort guard which collectively provide Gillette's best shave.

How do I avoid nicks and cuts, particularly above my upper lip?
The area above the upper lip is tricky for many men. To help avoid nicks and cuts, always leave it for last. Apply plenty of shave gel and allow this area to soak up as much lather as possible. When shaving, don't apply too much pressure. Gillette Fusion ProGlide's Precision Trimmer is really useful when shaving under the nose.

14 of 14 people found the following review helpful By Justo Roteta on March 10, 2008
The Fusion Phenom is much better than both the original and Power versions--especially because the handle design allows for a stronger grip. As a man who shaves both his head and beard I found it incredibly easy and comfortable to use--so much so, in fact, that I no longer use any kind of disposable razors for head shaving. The Fusion Phenom gives me an ultra-smooth shave with a smooth-as-butter feel and a smooth-as-a baby's scalp look. My highest recommendation.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Tomorrow's Man on December 11, 2009
Pros:
1. Double sided head - one side standard, other side for precision (sideburns)
2. Smart design - it fits in your hand perfectly
3. Blades last forever - at least 2 times as long as my older razor
4. Fewer cuts from blades - there are 5 close blades (aka little room between the blades) that makes shaving close, but difficult to screw up

Cons:
1. Initially the blades are more expensive, but in the end they last at least 2 times as long as my old razor so they end up being cheaper

Just got done using this i liked the way it felt.
I was starting to look and feel like Wolf Man without this.
Did the job beautifully the Lubrastrip gave out More Lube than the Mach3.
I would recommend this for the hairy individual out there.
Very satisfied with this razor.

I've used the original Mach 3 razor for about 9 years, and I have to say that Fusion is a worthy upgrade. The single edge blade doesn't do trimming as well as the product description suggests. However, the 5 main blades are great - give an extremely smooth and close shave.
