The Gillette Fusion razor review.


Visitors: 261

Gillette Fusion Razors are the first shaving razor with a five blade system and an extra sixth blade for more difficult spots. Having been specially designed, it is protected with over 70 patents to ensure that it will continue being the best razor.

The Fusion is the first 5-blade razor on the market. I suppose it's really a 5+1 blade razor; Gillette added a blade to the thin top edge of the razor cartridge for shaving in tight spaces. Gillette's ads suggest that the 5 main blades are spaced more closely than the Mach 3's blades, so they take up about the same space; that's almost true, but not the whole story. When I compare them visually, the Fusion's blades are closer together, but the 5 blades still take up a tiny bit more space than the Mach 3's 3 blades. Also, Gillette doubled the size of the ‘microfins', resulting in a surface that's significantly larger than the Mach 3's cartridge.

Gillette Fusion Razors allows for a better and closer shave with five of its blades working for a clean shave. The razor also has specially designed microfins under each blade, which are useful in holding the whiskers up for a steadier and cleaner shave for your stubble.

The razor comes in two options with the first one being the manual version and the second one as the powered version. The powered version would be beneficial for those who would prefer a vibrating feel during the shaving process. Likewise, it is smoother as opposed to the manual version as the powered version creates less drag in the skin.

Shaving results have been excellent. The Fusion shaves very closely, and with little irritation. So far, no nicks at all, even with brand new blades. There's an area around my adam's apple which I generally find very difficult to get completely smooth. On my first shave with the Fusion, I got it completely smooth, and I was quite impressed. Subsequent shaves haven't gotten quite as close, so it may be a function of the brand new blade, but it's still closer than I normally get with other razors.

The design of the handle is specially designed for a firmer grip. The bump designs on the grip are also helpful as it prevents unnecessary slippage that can be caused from the shaving gel and water lubricating the handle. Moreover, it comes with a power button, which according to the promotional advertisement, is necessary “to help avoid accidental activation or deactivation. “

In addition, it has been greatly efficient in decreasing the number of cuts and irritations because of its HydroGel Strip.

Gillette Fusion Razor would be a wise convenience if you would want to have a better shaving experience with not just three blades but fives blades and an extra sixth for tight spots. Check out free Gillette Fusion .
