Definite Improvement over Great Fusion!

I've been using Fusion for awhile - This is a noticably better shave. Both razors are very good and expensive! I expect that i will continue with the Proglide

Havee been a Gillette M3 Power Razor user for years. Skipped the last technolocical leap and stayed with M3. Razor was getting old, so decided to try Fusion Proglide. Reviews on the power version indicated no difference twix manual and power so I purchased manual to save money.
Have used the razor 6 or 7 times intermitent with the M3 for comparison. Don't see any difference in shave, just in the cost of blades.
It is a smooth feel while shaving, but leaves behind about the same feel as the M3.

      Comments about Gillette Fusion ProGlide Manual Razor, 1 ea:

      my husband wanted a new razor so I bought this one. he prefers his old one with two blades, because this one with 5 blades doesn't give him the same close shave. what a waste! all the goo on the razor also left crud on his face afterwards that I had to point out before we left the house.

      Comments about Gillette Fusion ProGlide Manual Razor, 1 ea:

      I started using Gillette Fusion ProGlide Manual about ten days ago, thanks to a massive testing project carried on by Procter&Gamble. After around ten shaves I can firmly say that it's the best manual razor I've ever used (still I've always used Gillette Manual razors). The most clear gain concerns the number of effective shaves without any performance breakedown with one single head.
      At the tenth shave there's still no evidence of skin irritation and green smoothing bar fade. I guess I will be able to use it for five further shaves.
      The recharging heads are a bit expensive somehow I 'm sure they do worth the purchase.

        I tried to avoid this razor for the cost and the hype. After using it now for about a month, it is the best razor I have ever used!! As an African-American, I strongly recommend this to fight against razor bumps and ingrown hair that is common amongst AA men!!!!
        Excellent product!

          Comments about Gillette Fusion ProGlide Manual Razor, 1 ea:

          I've happily used the Mach3 Turbo for many years. But I thought I'd give this a try, to see if it was as great as claimed. At first I was fairly impressed, yes this did shave ever so slightly closer than the Mach3 Turbo. Then the "razor burn" kicked in, something I've never had with the Mach3 Turbo. It was harsh and lasted for several hours after the shave. Figuring this might be a fluke, or that maybe my face had to "adjust", I tried it again the next day, but had the same painful result. For me, this just isn't worth the cost or the pain. I hope Gillette keeps making the Mach3 Turbo forever, because if Fusion was their only choice, I'd try their competitor's products instead.

          My facial hair grows rather fast i always get mid way facial hair in 2 or 3 days so i really need a razor blade that really shaves me down to the very edge of my skin

          But i cant really say anything about this razor, to me the shaving just feels like any other razor blade with the exception of a smooth glide...

          but it just cant reach that pesky left over facial hair that no body wants to see if they want a completely smooth face!.

          Sorry try another shaving razor this just wont get that out.

          and blades gets dull after 4th use

            Comments about Gillette Fusion ProGlide Manual Razor, 1 ea:

            You'd think this would provide a closer shave having more blades, but it seems to be as effective as a 3 or 4 blade razor. When you do happen to miss a spot and go over it, it is increasingly irritating on the skin as a result of having so many blades. Since I've transitioned from my trusty Mach 3 to using this, my neckline has broken out tremendously with red marks and the occasional bump which I had none of prior to switching to this product. I never had any issues with the Mach 3 and have not changed anything else in my shaving regimen. As an added detriment, the blade clips/razor are not interchangeable with lower-blade versions. Will happily be returning to my Mach 3 once I've used up my remaining cartridges. Oh, and did I mention these are outrageously priced, too?

            This is a great razor. It gives me the smoothest shave I've ever gotten in 40+ years and the blades seem to last forever. My two complaints would be: it is overpriced, along with the replacement blades, and while it gives a smooth shave, it does not give a close shave. But overall, I'd recommend it.

                I remember when the Mach 3 came out and I thought it was the best razor I had ever used. The Fusion ProGlide surpasses the Mach 3 by leaps and bounds! This is by far the best razor I have ever used. It does not pull or tug at my beard, even after a few days growth. It glides, just like its name says it does. Highly recommended!

                Gillette Fusion ProGlide Manual Razor

                 – As one of the world's leading manufacturers of shaving products, Gillette is always coming up with innovations to make hair removal a more pleasant experience for men. The Gillette Fusion ProGlide Manual Razor features the latest technology to minimize discomfort while still giving you the closest possible shave. Featuring five reengineered blades, a precision trimmer, and a number of enhancements that allow it to easily glide across your skin, this razor improves on the razors that have helped make Gillette popular, and it may provide your best shave ever.

                Gillette Fusion ProGlide Innovations



                Featuring the company's thinnest blades ever, Gillette Fusion ProGlide minimizes the uncomfortable tug and pull while targeting your stubble for a close shave. The razor's blade stabilizer technology helps maintain an optimal amount of space between the blades at all times in order to ensure comfort as it navigates the contours of your face. It's also equipped with a new Comfort Guard that clears away any excess shaving cream or gel to provide maximum contact between your face and the blades--resulting in a much closer shave. The product's Lubrastrip is also enhanced with mineral oil and soothing lubricants that minimize friction and allow the razor to glide across your skin smoothly and easily.

                Company History and Mission



                In 1901, King C. Gillette transformed the future of shaving by inventing the world's first safety razor. With this new product, men no longer had to rely on a barber for assistance shaving, and it made routine home hair removal possible. Over the last century, Gillette has remained committed to discovering ways to make shaving safer and more comfortable, and its innovations have been groundbreaking. Millions of men across the globe use Gillette razors every day to help them get rid of unwanted facial hair while minimizing cuts, nicks, or razor burn.
