Fact: Beards and stubbles are everywhere, so much so that we're begining to miss the smooth-cheeked man we once loved to call "clean-cut." We'll admit that, since our late teens, the idea of shaving, with all the potential cuts, razor burn, and ingrown hair, has always been a little bit dauting. And the distorted faces we make when we try to get that die-hard spot of hair under the jawline are simply not cute.
Gillette took notice in the semi-ordeal that a man has to face daily when standing in front of his bathroom mirror, and decided to get rid of the "long face" altogether. After months of design development, the shaving company introduces a truly ground-breaking innovation that may actually make a difference in your grooming routine.
At first sight, the Fusion ProGlide with FlexBall Technology is no different from your old razor, but it incorportes a new moveable part at the top of the handle, the FlexBall, which enables the blade to pivot and adopt the contours of the face. The movement of the FlexBall simply enables the blade to make better contact with the skin, resulting in a closer shave in fewer strokes, and therefore potentially less irritation, regardless of the grain.
Dubious? Just watch the hair-raising (pun intended) demo video below:
The best part is perhaps that, with all of the innovation being focused on the flexible handle, the new razor is compatible with the same Gillette Fusion cartridges that you've been using. The Fusion ProGlide with Flexball Technology is already available for pre-order at Gillette.com, and will hit stores on June 9, for a suggested retail price of $11.49 ($12.59 for a battery-powered version).
