What is that one thing that most guys do on a regular basis but end up hating? You guessed it… Shaving. Shaving is one of those routines that you do on a daily basis without even really thinking of it. You get up, you wash your face, you shave, you repeat day in and day out.
If you are a man that shaves regularly you know what I’m talking about. It’s a daily chore that’s somewhat uncomfortable, it’s not really something men love to do, but we do it for our jobs, our look and sometimes our partners. With the proliferation of the bearded man, it seems that many dudes agree with me as they opt to grow out their beard or leave some stubble. I’m one of those guys who has opted for bearded life, however, due to stellar family genes I have lost most my hair and have committed to shaving my head every day. It can be a minor pain and a huge time commitment. For me, shaving is an annoyance because it takes up valuable time and it’s pretty irritating. I always wondered why the big shaving companies didn’t take the time to figure out a way to make shaving more comfortable and to speed up the process.
Did you know that most guys take about 170 strokes every time they shave? A recent study found out that out of the 170 strokes, on average 120 of these are re-strokes. A re-stroke is when you shave over the same area of the face when most of the protective shave gel has been wiped away by the initial shave, and 120 seems like a big number.
With this number in mind, the good people at Gillette have listened to me and guys all over the world to produce a razor that not only cuts down on shave time but makes the shave infinitely more comfortable. How you ask? Well, Gillette has released the New Fusion ProShield Razor that comes with lubrication before and after the blades to shield my head from irritation during the shave. Paired with Gillette’s patented FlexBall handle technology, the new Fusion ProShield Razor is Gillette’s most advanced shave to date. Wait, it gets better! The new Fusion ProShield razor has two times the surface area (compared to standard Gillette razors) which means you can shave more with less time and effort.
As someone that shaves every day, I love the new Gillette Fusion ProShield Razor. It’s smooth, comfortable and honestly cuts down on the time I spend shaving my head. Due to the fact that the hair that does pop up on my head is usually thick and coarse, most razors feel like they are pulling or ripping the hair out. The Gillette Fusion ProShield really does glide, turning something I do every morning from a pain to something I now consider an essential part of my morning routine.
