Gillette fusion ProGlide Blades - 10 with handle £12.50 @ Boots instore

42
Found 9th May 2012
Boots are clearing out the old Gillette fusion range to make way for the new range.

They have the Gillette fusion 10 pack with handle for £12.50 - its these blades;

boots.com/en/…98/

And the 7 pack power with handle for £10 - its these blades;

boots.com/en/…83/

But you get the pack that is the equivalent to the one posted above.

Not sure if store specific (Norwich riverside) but the women there said boots are getting ready for the new range.

Hope it helps someone and its my first post :P

They had Loads left just to add! May go back tomorrow and grab some more and stock up.

not at other stores

Don't waste your money. After years and years of paying over the odds for these type of blades, I now use disposable Wilkinson Sword blades with aloe vera (I have sensitive skin). Currently 4+4 free, works out about 50p a blade. Using shaving oil and a brush/shaving soap - my skin has never been better. Ditch the expensive gel and expensive blades - you're paying for advertising, not quality.

Scoured all 3 Canary Wharf stores this morning and couldn't see this deal unfortunatley.

Thanx OP, appears to be national, picked up a pack in Kilmarnock.

Is this the green ones? I'm pretty sure it is, and you're right, they are excellent value and also shave as well as any Gillette razor does.

I've been using the same Gillette Pro razor for over 5 months, I re-sharpen it with a pair of jeans, which surprisingly works.

Here's the technique if anyone's interested.

No sign of it on Oxford Street

Same as me.... Recently used one of the wifes wilkinson sword disposable razors and it gave an excellent shave. These are the ones I now buy

Now I SHOULD be revising for exams, but that video has given me an excellent procrastination technique. Thank you.

None found in Banbury. Again...

Not really an amazing deal as the proglides are on offer at various supermarkets.

Forget the disposables, the absolute best shave (cut throat razor aside) is from a double edges safety razor, soap and a brush. Boots sell a Wilkinson sword DE razor with a pack of 5 DE blades for £4.69, in store (can't find it online) they have a soap dish with shaving soap for about £4 and i'd expet a cheap shaving brush (I bought a cheap wilkinson sword one at Morrison's for £5 back when I first ditched the 3,4,5 blade monstrosities that don't shave half as smooth as a safety razor.

Hm.. I'm not too fond of Gillette, but I LOVE getting a close shave. Are these the ones everyone's on about? amazon.co.uk/Wil…1-1 Do they give a close shave?

I've briefly considered DE but I'd like to stick to blades for the time being, as I don't have time to experiment with the different razors/handles/blades/soaps/etc, which all the websites seem to reccommend!

The jeans sharpening thing is fake - you see it posted tons but I bet almost nobody actually does it.

All of Gillette's newer razors have a line of plastic on either side of the blades making sharpening in this style impossible. When you push down on the jeans all you're really doing is pushing this plastic into them instead of the blades themselves.

See this picture: criticizetheworld.files.wordpress.com/200…jpg

Notice the metal strip on the end near the blue plastic. It sticks out past the blade's edge.


I think the people who actually "sharpen" the blades using jeans are self-deluding themselves. They imagine that it worked so therefore their mind tricks them into believing it did. I'm sure even post-"sharping" it isn't anything like using a new razor without the rust that forms.

Gillette's offerings these days are overly expensive and fairly poor. They spend far too much money on advertising and seem to be on a quest to produce a razor with an ever-shorter lift-span. Since I've been shaving I've noticed my Mach3 Turbos going from several months of shaving down to a few weeks.

I think Gillette has been busy with their materials engineering team figuring out just the right balance of metals so that the blade lasts just long enough so you don't change brands but not so long as for them to lose money. I would happily switch if I could find a respectable alternative but frankly also want the convenience too (i.e. I don't want to cut my fingers or face to bits trying to attach a new razor blade to a handle).

Not sure about the jeans theory, but I have one of these : RazorPit which definitely makes a difference. It doesn't necessarily sharpen the blade as such, but cleans it thus giving a better shave and making the blade last a lot longer than usual.

The reviews of the razorpit on Amazon tell the same story as I am about the jeans:

Jeans sharpening thing is not fake, I used it on the latest Gillette & Wilkinson sword & king of shave razors last year. Yes Gillette have that little plastic thing, but jeans are not a flat solid surface, same as your face isn't, otherwise you wouldn't be getting a shave if you think about it. It's the same principle as using a strop on a straight razor.

I no longer use cartridge razors however, moved to double-edged razors because 1) feels better 2) closer shave 3) natural shaving products 4) hugely cheaper long-term and 5) keeps the tradition going. Its also pretty fun too!

£45 including delivery, if you google the above company +10% off theres some code for a shaving forum to knock a few quid off. I paid a little more as upgraded the badger brush to a better one and took the Merkur 34C HD.

As an idea of costs after that initial investment, 100 Feather (the sharpest) razor blades on amazon costs £9, one blade does 3-5 shaves. Then its just the occasional soap/cream to buy.

This guy shows videos of the process youtube.com/wat…lcp

It does take longer than cartridge shaving, but your skin feels so much better, the shave is so much smoother and the products are mostly natural compared to the chemical foam crap. taylor of bond street do some amazing shaving creams, the sandal wood and almond ones are my favourite.

reddit.com/r/w…dge has loads of faqs, info etc!

you wont regret making the jump. with the cost of top level blades these days, 2-3 refill packs and you have recouped your initial investment, after that its like quitting smoking!

can't find a code for t

Going to trat myself but can't find a code for traditional shaving?

Treat

none in silverburn glasgow

Proglide seems just the same as Fusioni - £9.99 here amazon.co.uk/gp/…HIC

hudds town

Treat



Hiya, found it : tsr

It's meant to be for shaving room members but works a treat. Check out the reddit link I poste for faqs on technique etc. you can get 90 blade sample packs on eBay for 9 quid to try out the many different brands.

I've gone from hating shaving every day to loving it, this is definitely the way to go. As said it does take a bit longer but south better or your skin and better results!!

Just sharpen your razors on a pair of jeans, mine have kept going for over a year using this tip. Love the little blue led on the fusion power....

Thanks alot

the new PRO GLIDE razors are EXCELLENT.much sharper than the rubbish Fusion.and most important thing : they stay sharp much longer than the awfull Fusion.
give them a try,you'll be surprised how superior they are.and forget about Wilkinson shi-t-e.

Or alternatively, break the cycle of disposable cartridges all together! Read the article above. Peope used to get great shaves with single blade razors. Did these become dull overnight when double blade razors were released? likewise triple, quad etc, with power blah blah...its innovation for the purpose of increasing prices.

Pick up a DE razor kit including creams, handle and a pack of blades for £40. 2 years of blades then cost £9 & the soaps are better for your skin and natural based products rather than the canned numbing agents in the foams you buy in the supermarkets.

Your skin will thank you for it. Sharpening cartridges is economic, but not that hygienic as most people wont steralise their blades. I'd rather toss it every couple of days & have a classier shave experience!

I've sorted a DE razor kit thanks Khirsah for all your advice and code (saved me £6)
Can't wait to get going.

Is it worth paying £40+ if I've never used DE? Seems like a huge investment for something that may not be suitable!

This doesn't seem to be available nationwide at all! Checked 3 stores and no sign!
