I was leery about trying this razor but decided to give it a shot. The flexball does as advertised and adjusts to the contours of my face. No nicks and no burn. If you are a man of color that would like a clean close shave this is the razor for you.<

I recently purchased the Silvertouch Razor. My hands are generally wet when I shave and I find in difficult to hold onto the razor handle. I did not have this problem with my old Fusion Razor. Hey Gillette, why did you change the grip or the materials on the new razor handle. This razor is impossible to use in the shower or when your hands are wet. What's your response??<

Hi Gus. I'm sorry to hear that you were unhappy with the grip of the new Fusion ProGlide with FlexBall technology. Often times, we change our designs for new products based on consumer feedback received in the past. We certainly wouldn't expect the handle to be difficult to hold onto, though and I'll be sharing that with the rest of the team right away. Meanwhile, if there's anything we can do for you, please call us at 1-800-445-5388

Clean, comfortable, SMOOTH shave!!
Monterey Park, CA

As a primarily electric shaver user, I was able to give the GILLETTE FUSION PROGLIDE SILVERTOUCH a test drive. Although my face is not really conditioned to use a blade razor, I was quite surprised at how comfortable this shaver felt while shaving. It also gave a super close shave with minimal razor burn. I have tried other manual razors in the past and ended up going to electric because they were just so uncomfortable. Well I must say this Gillette really was a surprise to me in a good way. I have numerous co workers who are in the same boat as me and recommended this razor to them. Some of them tried it out, (just a few since most of them were electric users and just didn't want to take the time). Of those who tried it out, they too were really surprise at how comfortable this razor is and even more amazed at how close the razor shaved. I agree with them that the Gillette is much closer than an electric. If I were to chose a razor shave, the GILLETTE FUSION PROGLIDE SILVERTOUCH is the true winner here. Highly recommend!!

Fancy Flexball? Maybe. Smooth Shave? Definitely.

Well, it seems like everyday these companies are coming out with newer/better/safer/smoother/fancier razors for keeping yourself well groomed. After a while, you start to wonder if there really is that big of a difference between 3 blades and 4. I've been using my razor for quite some time now, and I decided that it was time to try something new. Luckily for me, Gillette was offering a trial of their new Fusion Proglide Razor. I received one free razor to try. What makes this razor different? Well, it seems like the main thing is this Flexball Handle. Basically, the razor pivots side to size so as to help it stay in contact despite the contours of the face. When opening the package, the first thing I did was play with this feature. It does rock back and forth pretty smoothly. While checking out the ball, I noticed that the razor has a good weight to it, and a solid grip. On to the shave: It was good. Did the Flexball make a huge difference? Hard to say. I did notice that each stroke really does take off what it is expected to. I didn't notice any drastic tilting by the head, but perhaps I'm not supposed to. I did notice that the shave was smooth. I didn't notice any tugging. I didn't need to redo the same area multiple times. I suppose when it comes to the Flexball, it's like Futurama sas, "When you're doing something right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all." I've been using this razor a few times per week for a couple of weeks now. I use it with some standard shave gel, and generally on slightly longer facial hair. I feel like I'm pretty qualified to say that this razor does a good job of taking off the hair without causing any problems. If you want to very visibly see some sweet Flexball action while shaving, you'll be disappointed. But if you want a razor that efficiently does what it is supposed to, you'll be making a good choice by picking this one.

Contouring razor for every part of your mug.

As a wet shaver for 18 years, I've seen the craziness of shaving products and the lengths men will go to get that smooth shave. So many mornings of shaving to get that smooth face will be a lot easier with the Gilette Fusion Proglide. It has a swivel that follows every bump and valley of all your facial shaving areas. The first time using it I was impressed but taken aback on how it works. I normally do a five minute shave then out the door so I didn't pay attention to the swivel very much. Saying goodbye for the day to my wife and her remarking how smooth my face was made me stop for a second. I've never had a product be that good the first time out of the gate. My face is sensitive so it doesn't take to new products well but this time it didn't need any break in time. On my second shave I noticed the swivel and how it really hugged my mug and I didn't need any extra pressure to get to those hard to shave areas. Thoroughly impressed. After using it for three weeks now, I'm very impressed and behoove any sensitive shavers out there to give it a try especially. It's a great product but the only reason why I give it four instead of five is the price for refills. It's a little steep for my budget but I will make sure if there's a sale it'll be at the top of my list. Great job Gilette!

Good Razor, Though Not Life Changing

Let me start by saying I've been using Gillette brand, 2 blade disposables for a very long time. I've always been pleased with their products. I do not shave with cream, just water in or immediately after a shower. I received the Fusion Proglide from Gillette, free, for evaluation. The first thing I noticed was that my hair doesn't clog the 5 blades. I used another brands 5 bladed razor for a short time and it would clog after every two or three strokes. The handle is weighted nicely and feels secure and sturdy. The flex ball is strong and I am not concerned about breakage. The moisture strip was excellent for the first week or so, however it gave me a false sense of smoothness and I had to go over a few spots multiple times. I keep a beard, so I shave my neck and upper cheeks only. The blade has good flexibility and it took a little getting used to the angle of this one because I'm used to the other style of razor. I have purposely continued to use the first blade to see what kind of longevity it has and am pleased so far. I am often skeptical of the idea of many blades because all it takes is a defect in one of them to cut/scratch me. These seem to be of excellent quality as I've not been scratched to this point (used daily for about 5 weeks.) All said, if you're in the market for a new razor, this is an excellent choice, however I don't know if the improvement is enough for you to throw away one you are happy with. Maybe wait for the 2.0 model that includes a camera so you can take shaving selfies (Hint Hint, Gillette.)

This is a great advancement and well worth the investment in a new razor. It is a huge improvement on those chin lines and hard surfaces to get a close shave. I highly recommend it. I received this product from Gillette to try.

A close shave

I have been using Gillette products pretty much since I learned to shave, so about 23 years now. I am not brand loyal to any product, but Gillette does make pretty good product and I do tend to favor their products over the competitor. That being said, onto the review. The overall look of the razor is pretty stylish in my book. The chrome body with the silver grips gives the razor a spaceage feel to it. I know that looks don't help with the shave, but the razor was aestheticlly pleasing. Now on to the shaving experience. I felt that i got a smooth cut from this razor. However I was unimpressed on how the pivot feature worked on this razor. There seemed to be no diffrence to me between my normal razor and the Fusion Proglide Silvertouch when it came to flex or pivot, even though the Fusion Proglide Silvertouch has a ball as a pivot point. Maybe I was expecting a greater range of movement. Overall the razor has a great look to it and feels comfortable in my hand. I was able to get a smooth shave out this razor and would reccomend it to a friend.

I'm glad to hear that you would recommend the Fusion ProGlide with FlexBall technology, though I am disappointed that you didn't notice much difference with the FlexBall technology. Our hope was that you would notice an easier shaving experience around the curves and contours. It may be helpful to know that the head only pivots 12 degrees to each side. I'll be sharing your comments with the rest of the team for review, and if you'd like to speak with us please give us a call at 1-800-445-5388.

This razor rocks. I have always used an electric razor in the past. The razor I have been using has a head like the Gillette, it moves on the different contours of your face. I have wondered why they never made this idea into something on a manual razor. I believe that every razor should come equipped with this handle, it gives a much better shave than a regular cartridge razor. The feel of this product is quite good as well, it has a nice weight that inspires confidence in its shaving ability. It works great, I would highly recommend it.

Overall, it's a good quality razor. It has a nice weight and decently smooth shave. However, I'm used to the Gillette Power series and it doesn't come close to it. I took the blade off and used it on a power handle and the combination worked great.

Hi lockridgej1, and thanks for your review. I'm sorry to hear that you felt the manual version of the Fusion ProGlide with FlexBall technology didn't work well for you. You'll be happy to know that it's also available in a power version as well. I'll pass your feedback on to the team.

I'm a once or twice a week shave kinda guy and I've tried most every other razor on the market. This product really works. It contours to your face as effortlessly as sand gets between your toes at the beach. The blade system is the standard premium shave you expect from a Gillette cartridge, but the pivot is what truly makes this unique. Bravo, Gillette...Bravo.

I like many guys out there shave my head and face on the daily. Gilette has always been my go-to brand for getting the job done. This ProGlide razor is made for a man- its got some weight to it with a sold handle that feels like a high-end engineered piece. The blades are smooth an provide excellent cutting- especially around the contours of my neck and head. Iv'e been using this blade for about a month now and have had great results. Beards, that little spot near your ears, and all around the hairline really are easy to reach as the ball pivots and shapes to the contours of my face. I am concerned about two things though- the lubrication strips have worn out pretty quickly- in about 3 weeks. The cartridges like many razor systems of this kind are almost prohibitively expensive. I would use this as a travel razor, but due to the expense of replacement cartridges, I may not buy them regularly and instead use a safety razor daily.

If you are looking for a new razor to try, this should definitely be one of your considerations. The razor gave me a clean, sharp shave day in and day out. The flex ball helps slightly , although it is just a slight improvement to the normal Gillette razor. I am very satisfied with this as I am able to make my daily shave a little more enjoyable with no nicks or cuts. 5 stars
