I’ve been shaving for more than 50 years and I’ve had my share of razor battles where my face ended up looking like “my razor attacked me” leaving small cuts and nicks that are just a pain. No pun intended.
These skirmishes happened quite often when I tried out a new razor.
Well, I think I have discovered the “holy grail of razors”. It’s the Gillette Fusion ProGlide that I’ve been using for about 6 weeks.
I have a thick beard that can be a challenge if I go several days without shaving. This razor doesn’t care, , , a 3-day old beard is just as easy as shaving each day.
Without a doubt, it is the best shave I’ve ever had and only 1 slight nick in all that time which was yesterday and only because I wasn’t paying attention. My fault, not the razor’s.
Five blades make the shave smooth and the Flexball handle technology makes navigating the contours of your face easy as can be, , , even challenging areas around your chin and corners around your mouth.
I actually look forward to using this razor, something that’s never happened to me in all these years.
Most can relate how difficult it can be to get to the area right under your nose. The ProGlide has a special precision trimmer blade on the back side where you simply trim down from the nose. This not only makes it so much easier to get to but does a much better job than trying to shave up the lip to the bottom of your nose to trim a few hard to get to moustache area hairs.
With my previous razor, I could not get to this area at all so I used a second old fashion single-blade razor to do the trimming. It was a hassle which caused me to look once again for a razor that would do the entire job and not attack my face so often.
I’ve used the same blades for 6 weeks and every shave is still smooth as silk. I’m certain I’ll get at least 2 months with every cartridge based upon my shaving habits.
I have to say, this is the first razor I’ve owned that actually makes shaving enjoyable so wanted to share it with you. Bought mine from amazon.com.
