Gillette’s New Razor

By David Michael Newstead. 

For two weeks, I tried the new Gillette Fusion ProShield, jotting down my thoughts along the way. Cool and ultra modern-looking, the ProShield’s main benefits are the lubricant stripes around the entire blade. And while this does make for a noticeably smoother shave, the stripes wear out pretty quickly. Because packs of replacement blades are priced at around $41.00, I consider the ProShield way too expensive for day-to-day use. And after giving it a try, I think I’ll stick with my regular blade.
