Gillette finally got a razor that performs like a razor should. I'll never change brands of razors again. Gone are the days of my toliet paper face, the uneven shave, the reptative strokes to make sure the beard is off. I've been using my Gillete non powered Fusion razor for about a year now and it is the best shave I have ever received from a bladed or electric razor. I have a very fine beard with extremely sensitive skin and most of the time I left home looking like I had shaved with a rake. This razor gives me the closes shave any razor has given me and I don't have to have a blood transfusion afterwards. Gillette you got it right and kudos to you for this 5-star razor. I won't try the battery one you have because I feel I got it right on the first try when I bought this one. The only one small complaint I have is the refills are a bit pricey, but with the performance I get with this razor and the money I save on band-aids it is well worth the price. I didn't think I could improve upon the shaving experience until I bought your shaving gel and it makes my sensitive skin glow. Anyone that has sensitive skin and a light beard like mine felt they were going to have to just live with the so-so shaves you have gotten until FUSION CAME INTO MY LIFE. THANKS AGAIN TO GILLETTE FOR THIS WONDERFUL RAZOR.

I tried this as I am an avid Gillette user and have a clean shave. But after using Fusion power, I notice I need to shave more often than usual and when I do shave, it is not as clean as Mach 3 turbo. So, I wasted the premium for the Fusion - and have returned to my longtime friend Mach 3. Don't waste your money on Fusion unless you have fine hair and don't mind it being scruffy.

Close shave, but harshly irritating

    Comments about Gillette Fusion Razor, 1 ea:

    I've used most of the Gillette razors/blades since the Trac II (I've used Trac II, Atra, Sensor, Sensor Excel, Mach3, Mach3 Turbo). Every one of those was an improvement for me over the prior one - closer shave, more comfortable, longer lasting blades.

    Fusion (and Fusion Pro-Glide) is yet another step forward in terms of closeness and long-lasting blades, but it's a disaster in terms of harshness and razor burn. My face continues to sting for several hours after using. I have not thought of myself as a "sensitive skin" shaver, and never felt a need for "sensitive skin" shaving cream.

    Bottom line, if your results are like mine - this is a loser unless you need an extremely close shave and are willing to pay the price in terms of major irritation. Too bad the Mach3 series is on the way out; I'll keep using Mach3 Turbo blades as long as they keep making them.

      The blade replacements are quite expensive. It does provide a very close shave and allows the head to pivot.

          I am a woman, and I stopped using the disposable razors, and I switched to this. I also gave one to my daughter, and she loves it too. This is the best razor I have every used on my legs. The shave is close, and lasts longer. Not just for men. Feels sturdy and of quality in your hand. Women's razors are not as quality-made. I love this!

                      Gillette Fusion Razor

                       – From the comfortable ergonomic handle to the completely re-engineered shaving surface, the Gillette Fusion Razor provides a close, precise, comfortable shave. This manual men's razor comes with two razor refills and offers a set of advanced features not seen in previous razors. Gillette has always been at the forefront of shaving technology. The Fusion Razor pioneers the 5-blade shaving surface that is comfortable even for sensitive skin. This razor accepts all Fusion and Fusion Power cartridges.

                      5-Blade Shaving Technology



                      The Fusion Razor advances the concept of multi-blade shaving systems by providing a 5-blade shaving surface for the ultimate smooth finish. As Gillette engineers discovered decades earlier, multi-blade systems work by first holding hair stubble in place so that the following blades can cut it smoothly and close to the skin. The five blades in this system provide a greater surface area, spreading the pressure of the blades more comfortably across the skin. The spring-mounted blades are also mounted in progressive blade geometry, spaced 30% closer together than in the earlier MACH3 system, to provide a more comfortable shave. The rinse-through technology keeps the blades from becoming clogged.

                      More Features



                      The blades are set in a flexible comfort guard, which has 15 Microfins that help them follow the contours of the face for a close, comfortable shave. In addition to the shaving surface, a precision trimmer blade is mounted on the back of the cartridge. This allows the shaver to reach tricky spots, such as below the nose, and shape edges of facial hair. The Enhanced Indicator Lubrastrip not only provides a soothing aloe lotion while shaving, but gradually fades from green to white to signal when the cartridge is no longer providing optimal shaves. For a secure grip, the handle has an elastomer coating, including a finger rest for superior control while using the precision trimmer.
