The price of this new razor Gillette has dropped further at Amazon. Some supermarkets are selling for half price but Amazon price is even better at £5.33.

The replacement blades are ridiculously expensive though!

Yeah does it come with 1 blade or 2 because I think asda have the non-powered verison for about this price and it has 2 blades.

Am I the only one who'd bored of Gillette churning out new razors all the time, increasingly more expensive...

Amazon review:

I feel quite sorry for razor companies. Years ago, they arrived at a product that did the job, did it well, and couldn't be improved much. I guess this is bad news in a society where everything is supposed to continually be new and better - or in a society where companies need to think of new ways to charge more and more for their products.

Now the world of already over-priced razors has a new monstrosity - this 'micro-chipped', skincare-oiled, multi-bladed, battery-powered, blue-flashy-light tecno-razor.

I've been using it for about 6 weeks, just to give it a proper trial.

At first, I was impressed. I was seduced by the beast's sensual vibrant purr; its cheeky little blue light; the weird battery-induced vibration as it caressed my bare skin...

But did it give me a better shave than my old Gillette Turbo? Actually, no. Not a bit.

By the end of the first week, the pointless vibration just started to feel a bit irritating, and the longer I used this razor, the more I thought it was seriously over-hyped and over-complex. What's next? a built-in MP3 player?

This morning, I finally put it in the bin and returned to my old Turbo. Bliss! No stupid humming, no 'look-how-cool-I-am' blue lights - just a quiet, peaceful, shave.

Sorry - I really do not see the point of this product, unless it's a ploy to hike the price of blades even higher ( a point that may be underlined by the fact that this is the first razor I've bought that came with NO spare blades at all.)

Two stars, just because you can actually shave with it.


I wonder what the world of shaving technology will be like in 2020? Judging by the exponential feature creep present in the field in the past ten years, perhaps we'll be using the Gillette-Sony-BSKYB-Adidas-Kraft Quantum Blade razor - a shaving product so advanced that it literally cuts reality with its millions of invisible blades, banishing your facial hair to a limbo just outside Alpha Centauri. Or maybe we'll have moved past shaving by then. Whatever. I remember when it was a big deal to have three blades on a shaver.

So, here are the features and what I thought of them (please read the headers in booming Sky Sports HD-3D voice):
"Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power has thinner, finer blades, with a low resistance coating!"
Feels the same as my old Mach 3. While the individual blades may be thinner on a nanoscale level, the extra blade makes the actual head of the thing somewhat larger than I'm used to, making it more unwieldy, particularly on the upper lip. And while I've moaned about there being too many blades, the single blade on the top isn't enough to do the job quickly and properly. It isn't as effective as a real cutthroat razor and I've never had a problem with two or even three blades.

"Plus the new blade stabiliser maintains optimal blade spacing for comfort and allows the blades to adjust to the contours of your face!"
It's true that my face has manly protuberances, but again, there is no difference in its ability to adjust to the contours of the dangerous off-road territory of my face.

"With battery-powered razors...soothing micropulses with comfort so incredible; you'll barely feel the blades!"
**This is a terrible idea. I repeat: this is a terrible idea**. I did try it with the power on, and I can't argue that the vibration produces a numbing effect that mitigates the feeling of sharp objects scraping hair and skin from my face. but I kind of want to be able to feel the blades - it helps me know when I'm done. It helps me know when I'm cutting too close to my nostrils or lips, or other parts of my face that I don't really want to shave. So, no power for me.

I'm struggling to see the market for this. People who want electric razors probably already have them. People who like manual razors have a plethora of cheaper and nicer alternatives to choose from. The added features and blades are for the blurb; not for the shave.

That is the cheapest I've seen it. Voted hot.

That's for the normal proglide, not the power version! These are £8 in Asda.

Hmm, I'll need to check again. The normal proglide pack has 2 blades making it better value by miles.
