arrow What makes Gillette® Fusion® ProGlide™ Power better than Gillette® Fusion® Power?


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

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

  • The new blade stabilizer maintains optimal blade spacing for comfort. It allows the blades to adjust to the contours of your face.
  • The redesigned ergonomic handle features added grips. The ribbed handle channels away water for better control in wet conditions.
  • The enhanced LubrastripTM is now larger than Fusion, making for a smooth stroke. Its improved formula, with mineral oil and lubricating polymers, enables the razor to glide smoothly over your skin.
  • The redesigned precision trimmer features an enhanced blade – helping you deal with those tricky areas that are hard to shave.
  • The Snowplough comfort guard channels away excess shave prep to help maintain blade contact for a close, comfortable shave.
  • The MicroComb, found exclusively on the Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power, actually helps guide hair to the blade.

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

* lead blades vs. Fusion

arrow 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.
arrow 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.
arrow 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 Powersenses 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.
arrow 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.
arrow 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.
arrow 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.
arrow 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.
arrow 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.
arrow Can I get electrocuted if Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power is submerged in water?

No. Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power is safe to use in water.
arrow 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 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.
arrow What are thinner, finer blades and how will they improve my shave?

Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power razor has thinner finer blades* than Fusion Power, with a low resistance coating. For less tug and pull versus Fusion and an effortless glide.

* lead blades vs. Fusion

arrow How was the Precision Trimmer redesigned?
The blade was improved and anti-clogging rinse slots were added.
arrow What is the Snowplough Comfort Guard with channels? What are the benefits of the Snowplough Comfort Guard?
Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power features a new Snowplough Comfort Guard that channels away excess shave prep to help maintain blade contact for a close, comfortable shave.
arrow Have there been any enhancements to the lubrication strip?
Yes. Its improved formula, with mineral oil and lubricating polymers, enables the razor to glide smoothly over your skin.
arrow Will the Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power cartridge fit any other razors on the market? 


The Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power cartridge features a new razor blade that fits on any Gillette Fusion, Fusion ProGlide or Fusion ProGlide Power handle.
arrow 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.
arrow 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.
arrow 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®.

arrow 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.
arrow 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.
arrow 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.

arrow 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 SensorExcel®, 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. Gillette Fusion ProGlide also has Gillette’s thinnest finest blades* for less tug and pull** and an effortless razor glide. It’s Gillette’s most comfortable shave.

arrow 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.
