Points which makes this product stand out:

Gillette Fusion Proglide Men's Razor review

Firstly, the fusion proglide from Gillette is the very first men’s razor to come forth with something as unique as flexball technology.

If someone wonders what the purpose of this innovation is, the answer can be found in the very name. The handle and the cartridge are connected by a flexball which gives absolute flexibility to the razor.

The razor can move in all four directions on your face and you no longer have to tilt your neck in one direction to acquire a clean shave.

It also makes it easy for the razor to trace the contours of the neck and chin.Since it works with the lightest touch, there’s no scope for nicks and cuts.

So even if you decide to get shaved just before an important event, you won’t need to be an expert to avoid bleeding.

Features of Fusion Proglide Razor :

  • A pack of fusion proglide comes with a cartridge which has five blades. People who are used to proglide’s predecessor Fusion tend to question if they can use the flexball handle with the cartridges of the earlier version. The answer is yes they can, as long as it has got five blades.
  • The flexibility of the proglide makes it possible for users to shave their beard the way they wish and you no longer have to visit a salon to get exclusive French or a goatee. The head of this razor will move as you please, so even without practice you can have the desired result.
  • Market research shows that more and more men are preferring this product because they can choose their own style.
  • The presence of five blades ensures a close shave with one simple glide and you do not have to use the razor in the same spot several times to get a clean shave. Hence, no burns or itches. With one smooth glide, grown men can now have baby soft skin.



A single cartridge, when treated properly, can last up to 3 months or more. The cartridges are to be kept dry after the use. The product loses its affectivity when the blade loses its edge and one way to prevent that from happening is to strop the blade from time to time.

The process is nothing complicated and neither is it time consuming, one can simply YouTube the method. If that’s too much work for anyone, they can just try keeping the razor dry and it’ll last them at least 2 months.

Considering the overall feedback across many online stores in India, users are satisfied with this razor due to its long lasting performance.

Cons of the product:

Some users have faced difficulty with the razor when they tried trimming long beard. If you have long, full grown beard, it would be advisable to trim them first and then use the razor for a clean shave because apparently, even with its flexball technology, this razor cannot turn a tropical forest into grassland.

However, it works wonders on thick stubble and users who have tried it claim that it givens an “evidently smoother, cleaner shave” compared to the products they have used before.



On the whole majority of the users seem to be pleased with the advanced technology which has manifested itself in the form of Gillette Fusion Proglide Manual Men’s Razor.
