The other day when I arrived home after a long day in the office, I was greeted by my new BzzKit with a Gillette Fusion ProGuide razor with FlexBall Technology and my Gillette Fusion ProGilde 2-in-1 Gel + Skin Care in the Ocean Breeze scent. Nearly all of my shaving life, when not using an electric razor, I have used Gillette products. For me, shaving is not something I particularly enjoy given that I have a long history of ingrown hairs and have also undergone laser hair treatment on my face to reduce the pain caused by shaving.

Before I received this complementary product, I was wondering if this was “just another razor” and if the FlexBall technology would really help the shaving process and the contours of my face. But after growing out my whiskers for the past two days, I decided to give my new Gillette Fusion ProGlide razor with FlexBall technology and my new Gillette Fusion ProGilde 2-in-1 Gel + Skin Care a try. I immediately noticed on the shaving gel container, I had to twist the cap to unlock, which is a great feature for travelers or in gym bags. This locking mechanism could possibly aid in not having shaving gel all over your clothes or toiletry bag, especially in an airplane where air pressure can do all sorts of fun things to toiletry items.

I used about a quarter size portion of gel and when I applied to my whiskers the first thing I noticed was the amazing clean Ocean Breeze scent. In fact, I brought my wife over to smell the scent too and she gave it an approving nod. As I began to shave with the Gillette Fusion ProGlide razor with FlexBall technology, I was able to quickly race across my face, without nary a nick. With each stroke and subsequent washing of the razor to remove the shaving gel, I noticed that unlike others, the razor blades were not being clogged by the shaving gel. For me, this is a very important asset for a razor as I don’t want to spend additional time cleaning my razor.

Before I new it, I was done shaving my face and the exact words that came out of my mouth were, “I feel smooth like butter.” Even my wife wanted to get into the rubbing action as she quickly felt my face and gave me a devilish grin. So if it works for me, it’ll work for you. Give the Gillette Fusion ProGlide a try and you’ll be happy too.
