Gillette ProShield

Did you know that most men take about 170 strokes every time they shave? And that 120 of them are re-strokes, aka over the same area? That’s a lot of potential irritation for your face, which can lead to redness, razor burn, not to mention little cuts. So what would make it better?

Recently while visiting with the great people at Gillette they introduced me to the new Gillette Fusion ProShield.

“With the latest razor technology, excessive re-stroking isn’t necessary for a close shave, but old habits are hard to break,” said Stew Taub, Director of Shave Care R&D at Gillette. “At Gillette, we constantly look for solutions to help improve the shave for guys, and that is why we are introducing the new Fusion ProShield, with lubrication before and after the blades, to help shield from irritation during the shave. We have changed our blade cartridges so guys don’t need to change the way they shave.”

As mentioned, instead of having a strip at the top of the blade to protect, now the blade is surrounded by lubrication to provide a better, less irritating and more comfortable shave.

I’ve been testing the new razor for about a month and I have found it provides quite the wonderful shave. Between the Flexball Technology, the ease of the razor itself, and now with the “ProShield” protection it really does cut down on possible irritation to the skin, and not only that, I found the the shave was so comfortable and glided on my face with such ease.
