Gillette Fusion ProShield.
By Belinda Morris.
If shaving is a chore that doesn’t seem to get any easier/speedier/more pleasant over time, it’s just possible that for once you can blame your tools. Ok, so there might be an element of care, skill or diligence involved as well, but with the right razor the job could certainly be improved upon.
With this in mind Gillette has introduced Fusion ProShield™, which has been developed following a study that showed that of the 170 strokes that most men take every time they shave, 120 of them are re-strokes over the same area of the face. Which means those extra strokes are carried out without the protective shave gel. Ooh, no wonder it feels uncomfortable and the skin is left feeling irritated with redness and bumps.
Rather than expecting men to change they way they shave (old habits etc etc) Gillette has introduced a razor with lubrication before the blades – as well as a Lubrastrip after the blades – which will shield against irritation. Quite a simple idea really, but according to my tester, it does make a difference and the shave definitely felt more comfortable. Look for the blue version and you’ll also get ‘cooling technology’ and ProShield blades fit on all Fusion and ProGlide handles.
