Product Description

The reengineered Low Cutting Force Blades of the Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power men’s razor feature thinner, finer edges (first four blades vs. Fusion) with advanced low-resistance coating to cut effortlessly through hair with less tug and pull than Fusion. A Blade Stabilizer maintains optimal blade spacing for comfort, enabling the blades to adjust to the contours of a man’s face. Next, the streamlined Comfort Guard channels excess shave prep to produce optimal blade contact, stretching the skin for a close, comfortable shave. And the razor’s Enhanced Lubrastrip (vs. Fusion) is infused with mineral oil and lubricating polymers that allow the Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power to move smoothly over skin, even on repeat strokes.

Exclusive to the Fusion ProGlide Power men’s razor, an innovative MicroComb guides stubble to the blades, while the redesigned handle with bigger, more ergonomic grips offers great control and easy transition between front and back shaving surfaces (vs. Fusion). A low-battery indicator light signals when to change the AAA battery, so you always have power when you need it. Finally, the automatic shutoff turns off the razor after about eight minutes in case of accidental activation, which protects the battery during travel. Power. Performance. Precision. It’s time you experienced the best Gillette shave yet.

Frequently Asked Questions

What makes the Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power men’s razor better than Gillette Fusion Power?
The Fusion ProGlide Power family of men’s razors provides the best Gillette shave. It incorporates years of technological innovation for the most advanced Gillette blade ever. Gillette Fusion ProGlide and Fusion ProGlide Power men’s razors share the same core technology: thinner, finer blades (the first four blades vs. Fusion) that glide through the hair for less tug and pull (vs. Fusion), a low-resistance coating, and the Precision Trimmer. The MicroComb, found exclusively on the Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power, helps guide hair to the blade.

How does the Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power men’s razor handle compare with the Gillette Fusion Power handle?
The Fusion ProGlide Power now has ergonomic side grips for incredible handling.

What’s 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?
The microchip inside Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power senses when the battery is approaching a low level, and the low-battery indicator light begins to flash, signaling that it’s time to change the AAA battery.

What’s the automatic shutoff feature?
The automatic shutoff feature turns the razor off after roughly eight minutes of continuous operation. This feature protects the battery if the razor is accidentally activated, and comes in especially handy 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 to help reduce friction and increase razor glide. With comfort so incredible, you'll barely feel the blades.

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. Using the Precision Trimmer Blade with or without power is an individual choice.

What type of battery does Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power men’s razor use?
Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power uses 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.

How long will the Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power razor blades last?
How long razor blades last is dependent on many variables such as beard toughness and thickness, beard preparation, shaving habits, and skin sensitivity. The Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power reformulated Indicator Lubrication Strip (vs. Fusion) 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 Fusion ProGlide Power and ProGlide Manual razors have been engineered with the thinnest Gillette blades ever (the first four blades vs. Fusion), to glide through hair with less tug and pull (vs. Fusion).

How was the Precision Trimmer improved over the Fusion?
The blade was enhanced, and anti-clogging rinse slots were added.

What is the Streamlined Comfort Guard with channels and what are the benefits?
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 razor blades and channels that clear away excess shave prep for optimal blade contact.

Have there been any enhancements to the Lubrastrip vs. Gillette Fusion?
Yes. It contains more lubricants and a touch of mineral oil.

Will the Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power razor blades fit any other razors on the market?
The Gillette Fusion ProGlide razor blade head fits on any Gillette Fusion, Fusion Power, or Fusion ProGlide handle.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
To properly evaluate the new Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power razor, I decided to compare it to the new Schick Hydro 5 and my normal razor, a Schick Quattro Power. All started with a new cartridge and a fresh battery as applicable.

I'll begin by saying that I've been using Schick razors for about 40 years and have not been too impressed by most Gillette razors. In particular, they tended to clog up more and were harder to keep clean. I was expecting to be underwhelmed by the ProGlide as well.

ProGlide vs. Hydro 5
Initial impressions: Packaging: Both come in the standard plastic clamshell, but the Gillette is easier to open. The back is perforated for easy opening, where the Schick is more child-proof and requires a sharp object to open it.

What's included: The Gillette comes with only one cartridge, where the Hydro comes with two.

Holders: the Gillette snaps snugly in to the included plastic holder, while the Schick holder just has a small pin to locate the razor. You could use the Gillette's as a travel holder with no problem.

Guarantee: The Schick comes with a money back guarantee. The Gillette assumes you will like it.

The razors: While the Gillette looks more substantial, both weigh 1.4 oz fully loaded. The Gillette has a single blade trimmer on the back of the cartridge. Flip the razor 180 deg to use it. The Hydro's trimmer is under the lube strip that you flip back to use the trimmer.

Cartridge mounting: The ProGlide cartridge slides on easily and snaps in place. The locator pin also acts as "suspension" for the cartridge pivot. The Hydro is a bit more imprecise. You have to line up two small spring loaded fingers on the handle with tabs on the cartridge. Not hard, but not as elegant as the Gillette.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The first thing I tried with this razor was a side-by-side comparision with my Mach 3 razor. So I put a new blade on my old razor and shaved one side of my face and neck, and the other with the Fusion. Without hesitation I can say the Fusion was a much smoother and less iritating shave. However, both razors seemed to give the same shave in terms of closeness. To be sure, I let my hair grow out a few days and there was no appreciable difference.

I can recommend this to anyone who needs a very sensitve shave. The battery power works in the shower, so that's a nice convenience. Naturally, with a battery, there's more heft than an unpowered razor like the Mach 3.

The downside, you might expect, is that the blades are about twice as expensive as the Mach 3. Since my old razor never bothered me, I won't be switching to these more expensive blades. But if money is no object, or if you really need a more comfortable shave, this would be a good razor for you.

This razor is okay, but it certainly doesn't live up to the hype, and, most certainly, not the price. It's all sizzle and not too much substance. Don't get me wrong you'll get a good shave, relatively speaking. But I've had better shaves with other less costly razors. I've used the Fusion, both manual and power, and the Mach 3. After shaving for a number of years with both Fusion power and manual, I've detected no difference between a "power" shave and a manual one. The Proglide is no different. The "power" option with battery and all sounds great, but doesn't work at all. It's a placebo and an expensive one at that.

I'm going back to using Mach3.

Here's a tip that has really served me well: use hair conditioner rather than shaving foam, and you will get a much closer shave. At first, I didn't believe a friend of mine when he gave me this tip. But it's true. I get much closer shaves. And the other great benefit is that your razor blades last much, much longer. Instead of a razor blade lasting me for a couple of weeks, tops, when I use foam, my blade is good for six to eight weeks when I use hair conditioner. Needlessly to say, now I only use hair conditioner for shaves. And I don't have to tell you, this translates to not only getting great shaves, but to saving a lot of money!

With the claims of a revolutionary razor, I believe most of the hype to be exactly that, hype.

Took a shower, washed my face. Applied Gillette Fusion shaving cream and tested it next to my old Fusion. No difference, what so ever. The "larger handle" is not that big of a deal, compared to the fact that a Powered Fusion has roughly the same handle size. The shave was no closer, it was no smoother, I could tell no difference what so ever in razors besides the pretty blue light on my new ProGlide. Having said that, I can't complain, they sent it too me for free.

It's an excellent marketing ploy designed to influence Americans to buy whatever product big businesses want us to buy next. Having said that, I see no reason to switch from my old Fusion to newer and more expensive cartridges. It received three stars due to the promises made by Gillette, and the fact there older products are just as functional as this newer, more expensive one.

I am always trying to find shaving products to give me a closer and more comfortable shave. I've experimented with this razor for the past few days. I will not be permanently upgrading to this. For some reason, Gillette appears to have completely bought into the notion that five blades gives a better shave than just two or three. Like the Fusion Power, the Fusion Proglide Power has some of the same problems. The most obvious problem it has is cost (just like the Fusion Power). For the quality of the shave you get, the cost of replacement cartridges is not justified. To be fair, I have noticed a slightly more comfortable glide with this over the Fusion Power. The blade stabilizer and microcombs do appear to be a modest improvement in this regard. Also, the Fusion Proglide blades appear to last a little longer than the Fusion Power blades - but not by much. The micropulses still do not provide a greater degree of comfort over a razor that lacks this feature. Also, I have not noticed a closer shave with this razor over the current one I am using (which is now the Schick Hydro 3). When comparing it my current razor, the Fusion Proglide Power definitely lacks the level of smoothness and comfort. Last but not least, just like its predecessor, I've discovered this five bladed razor tends to nick my face more often than a double or triple bladed razor. Gillette needs to get back to basics by realizing it is much easier to keep a satisfied customer who gets a good, comfortable shave as opposed to introducing new brands of razors that have gimmicks, and that are, not to mention, ridiculously overpriced.
