Gillette Fusion: 1st impression

I was quite excited to finally try the new Gillette Fusion. I wondered if it could replace my loyal Mach 3 Turbo. Fortunately I was given a brand-new razor, so I could finally try it.

The first impression that I have about the new Gillette Fusion is that it does cut very well but it’s very hard for my skin and the extra (and sixth) blade is almost worthless.

The blades seemed very sharp but nonetheless I felt like someone was ripping my facial hair, so it felt quite painful. On the other hand, my skin didn’t react badly.

About the sixth blade, it’s quite strange. Very small and weird to use. I don’t have very rigid facial hair, but at least for me the effect was about null.

Overall, it seems like I’ll just have to give it another try to understand if I like it or not. For the moment it didn’t positively surprise me.

    Have you thought that your skin needs to get used to it? It’s kinda usual every time you change a razor.

    Cheers, don’t get yourself bleeding,

    There’s a chance that’s what’s going on. Anyway, whenever I buy a product I really prefer if the product adapts to my, not the other way around.

    But let’s wait and see what my skin tells next time! 🙂

    Are you using the powered version of the Fusion?

    A couple of months ago I changed from a Mach 3 Turbo to an M3 Power, and I was pleasantly surprised with the effect of turning the thing on. It really seems to shave better, and is easier on the skin.

    The Fusion sounds a little overkill to me… 5 blades?! 🙂 But, if you’re using the non-powered version, maybe you should try the powered one. Anyway, since my M3 Power is still new, I’ll probably keep it for a couple of years.

    No, I’m using the “regular” version.

    But what effect does that powered thing generate? Is it supposed to lift the hair up?
