Thanks to pinchme.com.au, I recently received the newest razor from those crazy shaving experts over at Gillette. The Gillette Fusion flexball razor is the latest in shaving technology. It features the new Flexball, a unique pivoted head than moves to the contours of your face.
Already, this looks fancier than any razor I’ve used before. I used razors from a monthly subscription service called Dollar Shave Club, and they do quite a good job!
Anyway, it had been a few days since my last shave, so the Gillette had its work cut out for it!
I decided to go about this review as a comparison between my regular razor and the Gillette model.
Both razors feature an edging blade on the back of the razor, and they both did a decent job.
After I had finished the shave and applied my post-shave balm, I went into my wife to hear her verdict. After she felt both sides of my face, she and I agreed that my regular razor gave a much closer, smoother shave. However, in the days that followed, I noticed that the regrowth from the Gillette side of my face was much softer and less irritating than I was used to.
Fusion Proglide Razor with Flexball Technology:
- Less pull.
- Flexball means less strain when getting awkward areas
- Lightweight design
- Shave isn’t as close as it could be.
- Replacement blades can be $$$.
- Had to shave over some areas multiple times.
Overall: If you can afford it, then this is a very good razor. However, there are plenty out there on the market that can do just as good a job, if not better. If you have a razor that you are happy with, then stick with it. Whilst this razor did an okay job, it certainly wasn’t anything to write home about.
