My partner’s facial hair is black and extremely course, so he is never without five-o’clock shadow (I like this, but he doesn’t). He has tried every razor on the market, including straight razors, and concluded that he gets the best shave with a Gillette Fusion (5 blades!).
So last week I bought him a Fusion Power, which takes a AAA battery, and vibrates. He promised to try it for a week.
Surprisingly, he says it doesn’t shave as well as the non-power Fusion; the vibrations are merely a gimmick and work against the cutting action of the blades. He finally resorted to using it with the power turned off. But he’ll still use it, because he likes the feel of the heftier handle (to accommodate the battery).
And now I’m seeing further Fusion models like ProGlide and Phantom (not that I’m running out and buying them).
So . . . have any of you tried the Fusion Power, and had similar results?
