What does a Lubrastrip do? A Lubrastrip is a thin strip that sits at the top of the razor, releasing lubricants while you shave, to produce a great glide. When you are no longer getting an optimal shave, the Lubrastrip fades to white, indicating that it might be time to change the blade.
What is the difference between disposable and refillable razors? The entire razor is discarded when you are through with a disposable razor. With a refillable razor, only the blade cartridge is replaced. Refillable razors like Gillette Fusion ProGlide incorporate more advanced blade technology and ergonomics vs. most disposables for great control and a close comfortable shave.
Is it better to use hold, cold, or warm water to shave? Warm water is best for hydrating beard hair. Soaking in warm water softens hair and causes it to expand, making it 70% easier to cut.
What is the best way to avoid razor burn? If the skin is not properly prepared before shaving or if the blade on your razor is dull, you are more likely to end up with razor burn. Make sure to hydrate hair in warm water for up to 3 minutes and apply plenty of shave gel. Also, consider discarding your disposable razor at the first sign of dullness or discomfort.
Does shaving make your hair grow back thicker? Scientists at Gillette have conducted extensive testing on the effects shaving has on both male and female hair growth, texture, and color. This testing has proven that shaving does not affect hair growth, color, or texture. Shaving does, however, alter the tip shape of the regrown hair, which may initially change the way hair feels as it grows back. But if hair is left to regrow completely, it will return to its former state.
In which direction should I shave to achieve Gillette's best shave? Men's facial hair tends to grow in different directions. Start by shaving with light, gentle strokes with the grain. Then, if necessary, go against the grain for a close shave.
How do I avoid nicks and cuts, particularly above my upper lip? The area above the upper lip is tricky for many men. To help avoid nicks and cuts, always leave it for last. Apply plenty of shave gel and allow this area to soak up as much lather as possible. When shaving, do not apply too much pressure.
