Built Quality

The Gillette fusion5 proglide men’s razor designed with a very small profile.

The razor’s dimensions are – 1.2 x 4.1 x 7.9 inches; 2.4 ounces only.

The shaving head is engineered with 5 anti-friction blades that can handle any kind of thickest or toughest beard easily.

The flex ball technology allows the shaver head to rotate 24 degrees.

The shaver is 100% waterproof, so the user can use it under the shower.

The handle is made with rubber grip since the grip is rubber, there is no chance of sudden slip of hand.

In the back side of this razor, there is a precision trimmer that will create a defined line and provide you a finishing touch.

Power Sources

This shaver doesn’t have any power sources. There is no charging adapter, no battery; the shaving performance will depend on the blades.

In a word, this is a Manual Razor. So, you have to use it manually to cut the beards.

For automatic cutting and shaving the beards, you can select an electric shaver rather.

As the Fusion5 razor is not rechargeable, it is very easy to carry with you anywhere.

There is no headache about charge/run out the battery.

How Long a Blade Refill Lasts???

It depends on many reasons like- the thickness of the beard, toughness of beard/ shaving habits/ preparation of beard/ sensitivity of the skin.

The indicator lubricating strip of Gillette fusion5 pro-glide will give you visual cue- which fades to white when the optimal shave situation has been decreased.

When it will happen, you have to change the blade of this razor to get an optimal shave.

Cleaning and Maintenance

The cleaning method of this Gillette fusion5 pro-glide shaver is very easy and simple.

Just lift the razor blades from the head, hold it under running water. Remove all the loose hair and debris.

After a rinse, replace it again on the razor head.

The razor handle is thin, so always handle it carefully and during the shave, don’t provide high pressure.

Replacement Parts

The manufacturer recommended that after 4 weeks of use the user should refill the razor’s blades to get an optimal shaving performance.

I think replacement does not depend on the time, generally, it depends on using habits.

Customer Ratings

The average customer rating is 4.5 out of 5 where there are many shavers from the famous brand could not obtain such as honorable ratings.

As an example- if you see the customer ratings of Braun electric shaver, they could not achieve likewise Gillette.

This is much better than single razors. The cool thing is I can shave in a curve of a straight line.
