Ok so we are no-nonsense here at www.men-hairloss.com. Lets find out what offers us bette value for our time and money!
Is there an actual difference between these 2 products?
You can find out more about the Gillette Proglide with our latest contributor Michael who has sworn by it for over 2 years.
So lets start with the ProShields basics. It has five blades and they are tightly packed next to each other. Great start, more blades usually better right? The edges of the blades are at an optimal angle for the contours of a mans face rather than a generic razor like BIC.
Included in the Pro shield are actual lubrication strips located before and after the blades. This helps the ProShield like the ProGlide no pun intended “Glide” over your skin for the all-important smooth shave we all crave. This minises the need to go over the same part of your face, except for the thought chin hairs. Yo will need an electric razor and not a manual for a one and done shave. This of course is a manual razor. It is a very good manual razor though. These bells and whistles come at a price though. This razor is meant for the a younger man who needs and extra layer of protection (The Shield) but sacrifices the performance power of the ProGlide. Gillette have also included “microcomb” to help glide stubble to the blades. A handy safety feature for new-shavers. This is a feature for more in-experienced shavers.
- Basic entry-level Razor
- Big one, PRICE! It is 2/3 the price of the ProGlide Gillette Razor!
- Nice design and ergonomic
- “Entry” Level razor to Gillettes range
- Not such a quality as the ProGlide.
- You will buy more of these and not get such a good shave.
- You will need to press firmly over your Chin hairs as the blades struggle in one stroke
- Older men and more experienced shavers should try the Pro Glide.

Last but is it the least Razor between the two? GILLETTE PROGLIDE
Gillette Fusion5 ProGlide Power. Can you feel the power as you shave? No… according to our British reviewer Michael its a normal manual razor. So why are these guys at Gillette boasting about “Power” is it a marketing gimick?
No we don’t think so. It gets the job done very nicely and we think it is betterto handle and looks better.
Definately a more solid-feeling razor. Thats what we prefer here at men-hairloss.com
So its a little heavier but that is forgotten by the shave itself which is a dream. The extra weight helps with the pressure and you won’t need to go over the same parts of your beard unlike the ProShield.
Seems to us the “shield” is meant to mean you have to go-over and over your beard like a beginner. Thtats where we realised this is the razor for the older man. Meaning not a teenager or young youth. It is made for the more experienced shaver and it shows.
Its just the better pick for the regular guy like yourself. The only reason to pick up the Gillette ProShield is for the safety features an inexperienced younger man would need.
