Briefly about the history of the brand
A true Gillette razor symbolizes quality personal care products. A variety of machines of this brand can be found in many families, both for men and for women. The founder of the brand was King Gillette, who until the founding of his own company worked as a salesman. In 1985, he discovered while traveling on a train how inconvenient it is to use a dangerous razor in motion.
His new idea slipped into the idea of taking disposable safe machines with him on the road, which were simply thrown away after use. The parallel discovery of the engineer Nickerson, who offered the entrepreneur technology for fast and high-quality sharpening of steel blades, helped to realize the idea. The modernized machine in a short time gained popularity. It was due to the safety of the device, the ability to change blades and low cost of operation, compared with the services of hairdressers.
The company has been developing intensively and stably. In the 21st century, the Gillette organization developed and produced several lines of shaving accessories. Mach 3 series was released in 2003. It is equipped with a convenient ergonomic handle and three blades that guarantee effective shaving, without cuts and pulling hairs.
An additional helium strip is provided by a special helium strip, which turns red if it is time to change the razor. The Mac-3 Turbo version has ten micro-ridges and a flexible head. The design of the machine protects the skin from irritation, as well as more flexible wiring, thanks to the handle with adjustable pressure.
The products of Gillette shaving products are not only foam and gel for a safe and maximum sliding shave of bristles, this is a large selection of shaving machines for men and women, it is a variety of devices and tools, as well as a separate line of cosmetics for skin care after shaving. Each man will be able to choose for himself the perfect means for a careful and safe shave at affordable prices.
Variations of Slalom and Sensor Excel
The Gillette Slalom razor belongs to the classic disposable machines, which are equipped with a pair of sharp blades, a floating head and a handle with a special anti-slip coating. Due to the optimal combination of price and quality, this model is still in demand in the relevant market.
The Sensor Excel series was developed back in 1995 and is an innovative product. Compared with the counterparts of that time, the unique design of five ridges guarantees sufficient tension of the skin with protection from irritation. An additional advantage is a floating two-level head and a convenient handle.
Razor Gillette Fusion Proglide
This series was published in 2007. It belongs to the most modern and popular sets, including a machine and five interchangeable cartridges. The latest elements are equipped with ultra-thin blades. The Flexball technology used makes it possible to outline facial contours as completely as possible, even in hard-to-reach places, shaving off all the vegetation to a clean one.
Lubricating strips are located before the knives and after the blades. On the reverse side there is a kind of trimmer. Improved elements facilitate gliding, do not create pressure during operation, ensuring the absence of irritation on the skin. The Gillette Proglide series of shavers comes with a moisturizing strip treated with softening mineral oils. The device includes a microscopic comb, responsible for the most accurate distribution of hairs. The micropulse design of Power guarantees vibration when processing problem areas, thanks to the presence of a standard battery.
Razor Gillette Flexball
Men's shaving kit includes five blades with a special coating that reduces friction. The reverse side with a high-precision trimmer guarantees the processing of difficult places, including sideburns and areas above the upper lip. One cassette works confidently for one month. It should be noted that all replaceable cartridges of this line are suitable for the specified Gillette Fusion razor. This version is an improved line of Power and Proglad categories.
Models for women
The manufacturer did not forget about the better half of humanity. Modifications for women are focused on the removal of vegetation on the legs, under the armpits and in the bikini area. From male counterparts, they differ in color and size. As a rule, Gillette women's razors are available in pink, blue or other bright colors. The branded ribbed handle fits comfortably in the hand when driving the machine in any direction. The extended part in the area of the cartridge has a lower mass, oriented to a small female palm.
The devices under consideration guarantee perfect shaving, repeating the contours of the body, getting rid of the slightest hairs. In fact, these machines are modified and modified male versions. For example, the popular Venus line is an analogue of the Mac-3 series. Modification Embrace is equipped with three blades and vibration function. The Breeze model has special pads located under the blades. They are gel filled and replace the cosmetic composition during the shaving process. Among the one-time female versions, such variations as Sensor Sensitive, Blue for Women, Satin Care are popular.
Recommendations for use
Despite the fact that Gillette Power razors and analogues are safe personal hygiene devices, it is recommended to follow a number of rules when using them to avoid reddening of the cover and micro-injuries:
- Be sure to use a special gel or foam. In many instances of modern machines there is a characteristic strip with a lubricating composition, but it is not enough. For a full shave, you need to apply a sufficient amount of foam, which will avoid skin irritation and discomfort.
- Previously, it is desirable to moisten the face with water, and even better - warm it up. When steaming the neck and face, the pores open better, which provides easy removal of the bristles. For people with sensitive skin, it is recommended to additionally use a special oil, the film of which will prevent from injuries and cuts.
- Before the process, it is necessary to rinse the razor with cold water, which will provide a gentle touch of the blade.
- Do not be lazy to study the pattern of hair growth on the face. You just need to slide your finger along the bristles, determining the direction of the vegetation. If the bristles are pricked, then the movement is the opposite of growth.
- Do not rush and try with one movement to achieve the perfect result. Hard-to-reach areas of the skin must be pulled away by lifting and turning the head. No need to put excessive pressure on the machine, it is better to change the direction of shaving.
- After the process, rinse with cold water, rinse thoroughly the remaining gel or foam. After a few minutes, when the pores are narrowed, apply lotion or cream after shaving.
New machine from Gillette! What else can marketers introduce? Meet the Gillette Fusion ProGl Machine>
Beautiful advertising did the trick, I bought my husband
by the way you can congratulate me on joining the ranks of married ladies this razor. My husband probably has a bit more acute shaving than the rest of the men - he loves to run his beard. My point with a beard in men has passed, I prefer it to be clean-shaven. Therefore, it was decided to give a shaving machine to the heap on a birthday, a useful “device” is not a hindrance to the main gift. So the hero of this entryGillette Fusion ProGlide Power FLEXBALL:
- The thinnest Gillette blades for revolutionary glide and smooth shaving (the first four blades compared to Fusion).
- The five-blade cassette provides less pressure on the skin, reducing irritation (compared to Mach3).
- Enlarged lubricating strip with the addition of mineral oils (compared to Fusion).
- Channels for removing excess gel.
- Improved trimmer blade on the back of the cassette (compared to Fusion).
- Blade stabilizer.
- Power micropulses reduce resistance during shaving.
- Micro-hair directs hairs exactly to the blades.
- Chrome knob
Naturally all razor advertisements
GilletteGillette made it clear that there is this new FlexBall technology, but I still found a description of the manufacturer:
FlexBall Technology - Gillette'S INNOVATION allowing the razor to move in an extra plane. Follows the contours of your face for a better shave by Gillette. Shaves literally every hair.
What is the cassette itself I'll try to explainb.The principle of operation is to hinge on the base of the ball, to which a thin string is quite satisfied. This allows tilt the cassette in different directions. essentially nothing supernatural. The marketing ploy is or is it really a mini-revolution in shaving faces. I will tell later!
So the machine itself is placed in the usual plastic packaging that is usual for the company and painfully, including the machine itself, a cassette, a Durasell battery and a stand for the machine
It is made of high-quality metal, the handle is rubberized, the button to turn on the vibration does not jam, when turned on it pleases with a cheerful buzz and orange backlight.
usual and familiar to the look, 5 blades, there is a moisturizing strip.
Lubricating strip composition:
PEG-115M, PEG-7M, PEG-100, Silica, Mineral Oils, Tocopheryl Acetate, Pentaerythrityltetra-di-t-butyl, Hydroxyhydrocinnamate, Tris (di-t-butyl) Phosphite, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf, Juice, Bht, Ethylene Glycol
In the cassette itself, in my opinion the blades themselves are very close, not always their water jet can
"wash" to get rid of the stubble hairs that had settled down like partisans, but the husband has not yet complained
Good news: any cassette from the FUSION line fits the machine
personally not verified, read on the site before purchase
The usual stand, in my opinion there are not enough slots for spare cassettes or hang on the itchy end of the wall mount. Economy option to the machine costing more than 1000 rubles
Since the floating head exactly “floats” can be seen in the video:
Happy owner of the machine
and such a caring wife had to
persuade to take a photo "before" and "after":
Place of purchase: SM Carousel (Orenburg)
To summarize and how to save on a new toy:
Do I recommend a new machineGillette Fusion ProGlide Power FLEXBALLto purchase? Of course I recommend! do i need technologyFLEXBALL?having studied the pros and cons, having listened to the opinion of the husband (he said that shaving has become more convenient, but rather so as not to offend his wife) I summarize: no, this is just an innovation of marketers, more likely a trick than an urgent need, it’s quite possible to do without rotating cassette. As for micropulses, I can also say this is just an attempt to create a semblance of an electric razor from a machine, but the attempt is unsuccessful. By purchasing, for example, the same machine, but without a “buzzer”, you can save about 400-500 rubles, since you decided to purchase a newfangled one withFLEXBALL. However, I still think that the machine is really made efficiently, beautifully and conveniently. In addition, the season of New Year's gifts, who knows, maybe it is your man who dreams of this.
On sale you can find several varieties of modern razor sets Gillette. All of them provide a smooth and comfortable shave, convenient to use. Replaceable cartridges of 4/5/8 pieces in a set are produced for the machines. The life of the cartridge depends on the frequency of use and stiffness of the bristles. To get the most worthy result, you should choose only high-quality razors, preferably with three or five blades. Consider the more modern the device, the better it works, because the company is constantly improving its products using innovative technologies.
