Gillette Fusion HydraGel Pure & Sensitive Shave Gel - Gillette

Great product works well; only needs one modification and that is the way the product dispenses. Sometimes it sticks open and the product leaks out.

I just love this version of the shave Gel. Not only does it smell and feel great when i use it, it also helps my tender face to get a really close shave!

The gel is wonderful to shave with. But the can leaves terrible rust stains on the vanity which are hard to remove. The equivalent products from your competitors do not do this. While I like the gel, I will not buy your product until the issue with the rust stains is resolved.

The last 2 cans I purchased after using half the can it stopped squirting out the gel from the dispenser. The gel would start to foam out of the top of the dispenser, the area you would normally push down on.

The product works fine but the last two (2) cans of Fusion HydraGel that I bought stopped pumping with more than half of the shave cream left in the can. What a waste!

This is by far the best shave gel that I have ever used. It works perfectly, reduces nicks and cuts, and contains NO smell. It is smooth on the skin and does the job effectively. I only wish they offered this in the small travel size to carry on airplanes. I see many people have negatively reviewed this product because of the dispenser. Personally I have never had this issue, but I can understand why it would be a concern. Please know that the product deserves 5 stars though - Gillette can fix the dispenser if there is a problem with that. Please keep manufacturing this - it is the best product ever!

I have used Gillette products since I started shaving at about 15; i am now almost 70. This is the first time I feel that i have not gotten my money's worth from one of your products. The aerosol ran out with about half the can remaining. The numbers on the bottor of the can are: 03218323D1.

I think the gel inside this can is great... Unfortunately every can of it I've bought has such a defective dispenser that the top breaks off when I open it, resulting in one of two outcomes: Outcome 1 is the air seal in the dispenser is no longer tight enough to dispense the gel properly. Outcome 2 is that the top becomes crooked and gel leaks out all over and I can not stop the can from completely emptying in one fell swoop. Either way, my money goes to waste. I see other people have similar problems - Gillette needs to fix this can/dispenser so that consumers can actually use the good gel that goes to waste! I stick with the older style Gillette Series Gel - never had this problem with that.

I have always switched gels and shaving cream, trying to find something that didn't nick or cut me. Believe me, I have tried everything from Barbasol to Edge to Nivea to Neutrogena. If I thought I had found "the one" after one shave, it would eventually leave me with some kind of scrape or nick or cut. Well Hydra Gel Sensitive Skin IS "the one". I tempered my enthusiasm after a shave or two with no nicks. Now it has been almost 3 weeks and I can count on one hand the minor scrapes that I have had...probably from me being in a hurry. Congratulations Gillette, you have yourself a new customer!

Hate to hear this! It sounds like something may be clogging inside the container or there could be something wrong with the propellant inside the can of Fusion HydraGel. We have strict quality standards and would like to learn more about what happened. Please give us a call at (800) 445-5388. Thanks!

I have bought Gillette Fusion shaving cream several times and love the shaving cream itself, but twice now when I remove the cap the pump head breaks off and I can no longer use the rest of the shaving cream.

Fusion HydraGel Pure and Sensitive Shave Gel FAQs

Want to find out more about your favorite products, get helpful grooming tips or discover what's new and cool at Gillette? Well, we've got all the answers you need from the Gillette experts you've come to trust. So search away.

How does Pure and Sensitive Fusion HydraGel work?
Shaving is a man’s job, so you need the right tools to get it done. That’s why Gillette developed Fusion HydraGel. The formulation works by creating a protective blanket over your skin that helps lock in moisture and soften facial hair. The result? Smooth razor glide with less tugging of the hair for a more comfortable shave.
Why should I use Shave Gel on my Skin?
In life the best offense is a good defense. That’s why you need to take care of your skin. Start by using a good shave gel. It will help lock moisture into your skin and soften your facial hair so your razor will have a smooth glide.
Why are there different varieties of Gillette Fusion HydraGel and how do they differ?
Because your skin is as individual as you are, Gillette has developed seven different types of Fusion HydraGel. They are Pure and Sensitive, Cooling, Tough Beard, Clean and Fresh, Clear Skin, Ultra Sensitive, and Moisturizing. Check out our complete line up and then pick the one that best suits your needs.
Pure and Sensitive - Proven performance on sensitive skin. Dye and fragrance free.
Cooling - The cooling technology keeps your skin feeling refreshed during your shave.
Tough Beard – Formula, with Glycerin and beard-hydrating ingredients, help to provide an incredibly comfortable shaving experience.
Clean and Fresh - Aloe and citrus extracts provide a fresh and clean scent.
Clear Skin - Effective cleansing ingredients help remove impurities such as dirt and oil.
Ultra Sensitive - With aloe and Vitamin E, it meets the needs of your sensitive skin.
Moisturizing – Formula, With aloe and cocoa butter, keeps your skin hydrated during the shave and provides an incredibly comfortable shave.
How long do I apply gel on my face before shaving?
To ensure maximum effectiveness, apply one minute before shaving. This will soften your facial hair and allow for less tug and pull when shaving. Be sure to apply Gillettte shave gel in slow circular motions, covering all the areas, to get the most comfortable shave you can.
Is there anything I can use to prevent shaving irritation and protect my sensitive skin?
For those with more sensitive skin we recommend either Pure and Sensitive Gel, which is free from fragrance and dyes or Ultra Sensitive Gel, with aloe and Vitamin E. However, all Gillette Shave Gels cover your skin with a Triple Protection formula. This Anti-Friction gel enhances razor glide for a smooth and comfortable shave.
