Gillette Fusion Manual Men’s Razor Blade Refills Review

Gillette Fusion 5 men’s razor blade refills come complete with 5 precision blades spaced close together for an amazingly comfortable shave. The precision trimmer on the back is great for hard-to-reach areas such as under the nose and sideburns. One razor blade refill equals up to one month of shaves so one refill a month and you have almost an entire years worth of shaves.

Gillettes advanced 5 – Blade Shaving Technology surface distributes the shaving force across the blades to help reduce pressure ensuring more comfort and reduced irritation.

Some Shaving Myths And Facts

Shaving myths are no different than urban legends. The science side of our brains knows the difference between shaving myth and fact, but if it’s that obvious, how come those myths are still around? Here are some popular shaving myths:

1) Wet Shaving Every Day Makes Beard Hair Grow Back Faster, Thicker, Darker

If old wives ever sat around telling shaving tales, this would be number one. Hair growth, thickness, and color are controlled by genes, not by how often you shave.

2) New Razors Make More Cuts, Not The Perfect Shave

How about the exact opposite. An older razor or one with damaged blades is more likely to cause cuts. The duller the blade, the more pressure you need to use to shave, which is how those wet shaving cuts happen. If it feels like the blade is tugging at your skin or the shave doesn’t feel as close as usual, that’s a sign it’s probably time to change blades.

3) Razor Blades Should Be Changed Weekly

How fast a razor blade gets dull depends on several things, the quality of the blade, the way it’s made, how often you shave, whether you have prepared first with shave gel, and how the blade is cared for after each shave. Everyone’s a little different and that men ultimately should trust their own feeling about when it’s time to change a blade. Changing blades once a week is probably too often if you’re using a high-quality blade.

Final Thoughts

Both my hubby and I have been using Gillette products for years and have always been happy with their products quality and affordability. We keep a steady supply of Fusion refills in the bathroom cabinet and they are the blades that I prefer, in fact, I have found that these work better than many products made specifically for women, might just be me but I like them. My hubby isn’t an all the time razor kind of guy, but when he does use them they work well and won’t irritate his sensitive skin, and that’s one of the reasons I use them too.

Gillette Fusion Razor Blade Refills are a quality product that gets the job done and is a great value when you consider you can get up to a year’s worth of shaves, definitely worth trying.
