Gillette sent me this razor for my 18th birthday as a gift and being somebody who had never shaved before it made shaving a breeze and left me zero irritation. Since then I've tried others and there really nothing like the feel of this one. Smooth and gliding.<

Wow, bought this razor thinking it was just another razor. I was proved wrong! It delivered the smoothest shave I have ever gotten. No irritation at all even when the blades start to wear. Last much longer than any disposable I've ever used. All around just a great razor.<

Best Razor Yet!

I've been using Gillette razors ever since I began shaving (8 years), and was always satisfied with the quality of the products I had purchased. But the Fusion ProGlide Silvertouch is quite honestly the best product Gillette has produced to date! The blades are positioned in a way that truly does reduce the amount of tug/pull when shaving, and for someone with sensitive skin like myself - its a dream come the. The improved conditioning strip allows me to use the razor for twice as long as the Fusion ProGlide, and leaves my skin unharmed without sacrificing the quality of a close shave! Great product!<

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


Fusion® ProGlide™ Power is Gillette’s best shave. It incorporates years of technological innovation for Gillette’s most advanced blade ever.

Gillette Fusion ProGlide and Fusion ProGlide Power share the same core technology: thinner, finer blades* that glide through the hair for less tug and pull**, a low coating and the Precision Trimmer Blade. In addition to this:

  • The streamlined comfort guard with channels to help clear away excess shave prep.
  • The MicroComb, found exclusively on the Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power, helps guide hair to the blade.

These technologies combine to create Gillette's best shave.

* First 4 Blades vs. Fusion
** vs. Fusion

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?
Gillette was the first company to introduce a battery-powered wet shaving razor. The soothing micropulses provide 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 safe to use in wet environments.
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 consider changing your cartridge for 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 Gillette’s thinnest blades ever*, to glide through the hair for less tug and pull**.

* First 4 blades vs. Fusion
** vs. Fusion
How was the Precision Trimmer redesigned over the Fusion?
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.
Have there been any enhancements to the lubrication strip?
Yes. It 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 new razor blade that fits on any Gillette Fusion, Fusion ProGlide or Fusion ProGlide Power handle.
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, consider changing 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 advanced blade technology and ergonomics for great control and a close comfortable shave.
What is the benefit of a 5-blade razor?

Gillette Fusion and Fusion ProGlide razors have five blades spaced close together, to help reduce pressure while shaving for more comfort and less irritation compared to MACH3.

But there’s more to shaving than just the number of blades. The 5-blade shaving surface of Fusion ProGlide features thinner, finer blades*, progressive blade alignment, and a flexible comfort guard to provide Gillette’s best shave.

* First 4 blades vs. Fusion

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.
