TRIED, TESTED AND TRUE: Gillette Fusion® ProGlide® Manual Razor with FlexBall™ Technology


In case you didn’t know, or live under a rock, Gillette has gone and done it again. This time the legendary razor company has combined the pivotal motion of a Dyson vacuum with a close shave — thus giving birth to the Gillette Fusion® ProGlide® Manual Razor with FlexBall™ Technology.

The Gillette Fusion® ProGlide® Manual Razor with FlexBall™ Technology claim:

Responds to contours to make maximum contact* and gets virtually every hair.
-5 reengineered blades for less tug and pull**
-Gillette’s #1 razor on sensitive skin
-All Fusion razor blades fit all Fusion handles
-New Fusion ProGlide with FlexBall Technology responds to contours to make maximum contact* and gets virtually every hair. -Our best blades are now 2X preferred when used with  FlexBall Technology (overall preference vs. former ProGlide, among ProGlide users).

And because we’re always looking out for our readers and fans, we’ve put some of our followers up to the test to see what the new Gillette Fusion ProGlide with FlexBall Technology razor is like first-hand!

First up, our good buddy Greg! (Thanks, Greg!) See what he had to say below:

What was your overall opinion of the new Gillette Fusion® ProGlide® Manual Razor with FlexBall™ Technology ?
This is pretty dope. When I was asked to try this, I thought it was just another claim. But it really is like a Dyson razor. I know it’s supposed to avoid making that “shave-face”, but I did it anyways. Bad habits, I guess. I did notice that it gave me a closer shave and I would definitely use it again.

Would you buy it again?
I don’t have to! It works with my existing Gillette razor cartirdges. Would I buy it as a gift? Ya, for sure. For anyone wondering (cause I didn’t get it) it’s just a new handle — so you can keep the same razors. It’s pretty awesome.

Could you notice a difference? If so, how?
I did for sure. It gave a closer shave. I attempted to do the one-stroke full shave…that didn’t work out so well. But that was probably my fault. Practice makes perfect? I also noticed that I had less irritation. It definitely makes a difference.

(For those who haven’t seen it…check out the commercial below!)

Did you notice a difference with the Flexball Technology?
I didn’t really have to go over any spot more than once. I didn’t miss as many spots.

In your opinion, what sets Gillette apart from other razor companies?
I think Gillette is the leader for sure. The technology behind this is crazy. Can’t argue with the technology.
