Review: Gillette Fusion Razor

I was in the evil Wal-Mart yesterday to pick-up diapers and happened past a display for Gillette’s new “Fusion” razor. Since I’ve been inundated with commercials about the product, I thought I’d give it a try.

After 2 days the results are in…

The Good: The razor provides a nice close shave, and it does feel pretty good on the skin. You’d have to really try hard to cut yourself with this thing. I also liked the single blade on the back for touching-up sideburns.

The Bad: I found it actually takes longer to shave because the blade requires you to rinse it much more than even the Gillette Mach 3 (my previous razor). This is particularly true at the beginning of the shave.

Overall: I think I still prefer the Mach 3, but I’m going to give myself a couple weeks with the Fusion to see if it grows on me.
