It has 5-Blade Shaving Surface Technology with blades spaced closer together to help reduce pressure-for a close comfortable shave. It's a cross between the old stick razors and an electric -- and I can use it while I take a shower. I get the closest, most comfortable and nick-free shaves from this little guy. 15 Microfins to follow the contours of your face for a comfortably close shave. Lets you know when to change the battery, so you'll always have power when you need it. It comes with Flexible comfort guard carefully follows the contours of the face. The improved blade stabilizer helps maintain precise blade spacing for optimal comfort.To save battery or increased battery life the Automatic Shut-Off feature turns the razor off after roughly 8 minutes of continuous operation



The blades are expensive, but they last me a long time. I also like that I hardly ever have to replace the battery. Its The redesigned precision trimmer now features an improved blade and anti-clogging rinse slots. Its Enhanced indicator Lubrastrip signals when it's time to change the blade; included one "AAA" battery. It has finer blades, a low resistance coating and the redesigned Precision Trimmer Blade. I like the little backside trimmer for my tiny parts to remove hairs.

At first I was skepticalabout buying this razor, but I forgot to pack my usual one for a long trip. But there was a coupon attached to it that made it cheaper to the non powered version of this brand. I have sensitive skin and am always having trouble with razor burn from most razor systems and have had great results from the Fusion systems in the past so I bought the Fusion Power. I like the razor and use it with and without using the power (mostly because I forget), but I don't notice a great difference. My face is a little bit smoother when I remember to turn on the power. I think that it is a good product, not a great product. The replacement blades are more expensive then the non powered version and I have found out the non powered blades work just as well. As I stated, I purchased this model because I forgot my usual Fusion razor on vacation, I probably would never had tried this razor (Thanks to the coupon). But I did and I would recomend that you save your money and buy the plain model. It's not worth the extra money, but it's still a quality product. Thanks

Gillette Fusion Power 8 Pack te best I've tried so far

By 

from Charles City, VA

Comments about Gillette Fusion Power Razor:

I accendentally got this razor, thinking I was getting the regular one. When I found out it had a vibratiion, I thought "what a terrible gimmick". I was proved wrong, I found this tobe the best razor I've ever had, and would not trade it for any other one. Plus, the vibration helps with the neuropathy I have in my hands. I use it in the shower, making it a quick way to shave. Good product, indeed.

Gillette's Fusion Razor is fantastic

By 

from Durham, NH

Comments about Gillette Fusion Power Razor:

Let me start by saying this was my first real razor, for years i used an electric one, but eventually wanted a closer shave. The Fusion was the easiest thing to use, i still have only cut my self a few times with it in the past few years. Although some people may think that 5 blades is just too much, it allows a very close shave without as much risk of slicing yourself. The additional razor on the top for close trimming works well, however, i have cut myself with it pushing to hard. My biggest complaint about this product is probably the price of refills. However, this is the same for most quality razors. Gillette's 18th birthday program sent me this razor, and their campaign worked for me. They got me hooked and i have been buying replacement razors from them for years now. Although i don't like paying their high prices for razors, i also don't like cutting myself with cheap ones, so i will stick with the fusion and would recommend it to others.

Best razor ever!

By 

from North Pole, AK

Comments about Gillette Fusion Power Razor:

I know it's lame to get this excited about a razor, but the Gillette Fusion rocks!  I discovered this years ago when my husband brought one home and I had to have my own.  

For some reason it is almost impossible to cut yourself with this razor! I guess it's the vibrating motion, but since I have been using this razor I think I have had one cut.

My husband is in the military so he has to have a well-shaven face every day and he has really sensitive skin.  He doesn't have any problems when using this razor.  The last business trip he took he left his Gillette Fusion behind and was really sorry.

The battery lasts a really long time, which is nice, but it's also really easy to change when you need to.  The only thing that's less than perfect is the price.  The razor itself is expensive and the refills are also really expensive.  But if you wait for a sale or a coupon you can stock up so you don't run out and have to pay full price!

Best Razor I've ever owned.

By 

from Rochester, MI

Comments about Gillette Fusion Power Razor:

I've used many razors in the past but this one blows them all out of the water. I was tired of constantly dulling blades, and the tugging and pulling of a bad razor in the morning. After trying many different razors to keep my manly hair in check this one has proven to be the best. It's so smooth it's like shaving with light (like in the sci-fi movies). The conditioning strip keeps my face as smooth as butter. To see how nice this razor truly was I switched a short time to a Schick razor but hated it and I switched back to this razor. The one con I do have about this razor though is that the conditioning strip wears out way before the blades begin to dull. Although the vibration does keep you hand shaking well after you turn it off, which is annoying, it does the job well when it is on your face. If you are looking for a razor that is cheap, does the job and does it well than this razor is for you sir.

Good Shaver

By 

from Arlington, VA

Comments about Gillette Fusion Power Razor:

This is an all-around good razor. The interesting thing about it is that the vibrating feature provides a great shave but, when the feature is off it also provides a great shave. Sometimes I prefer to use it without the vibrating feature. The shave is really smooth and I won't use another razor; it is the best shaver that I have used. The battery lasts for a really long time. Obviously there are cons though. The biggest downside to this razor is not the functionality, but it is the price. Not the price of the actual shaver, but the razors. They are so expensive! I know that over time the cost per use is pretty low, but they are still really expensive. I always buy them again and again, so I think my face is telling me that they are worth it. Other than the price, this is overall a good razor. The shave can't be beat, but it is not the cheapest item to have and maintain. The blades do last for a while if you don't shave against the grain.

Gilette Fusion Power Razor is the best I've ever used!

By 

from Rockdale, TX

Comments about Gillette Fusion Power Razor:

This is first razor that has claimed that the razor needs to be changed only every 3 months and has meant it!  The blade lasts an unbelievably long time, the shave is super close, and it glides smoothly so your skin doesn't get irritated.  The vibration feature also seemed to work and wasn't annoying at all.  I used my husband's on accident once because mine was too far gone to use and I haven't used a woman's razor since!  This does everything and is worth the splurge.

Fusion: Truly the best shave EVER!

By 

from Batavia, OH

Comments about Gillette Fusion Power Razor:

I bought this razor for my husband with some reluctance just because it was a power razor.  He has extremely sensitive skin and gets knicked easily.  After he used it for the first time he told me, and I quote, "Don't bother buying me any other kind of razor."  I actually noticed a difference in his skin.  He did not have ANY knicks, no red bumps, no bleeding!  He felt the blades lasted a long time.  My oldest daughter tried it and loved it for her legs and sensitive under arms.  We won't be buying another brand after trying the Fusion.  The one down side (aside from the price tag) is that the cartridges are so expensive!  We never buy cartridges because they cost so much.  We actually wait for a sale and then buy quite few razors and throw out the old.  This may not be the most environmentally friendly method, but it is the most economically friendly method for our family as we are on a tight budget!

The power feature on Gillette Fusion Power is annoying

By 

from Goshen, IN

Comments about Gillette Fusion Power Razor:

I really don't like the Gillette Fusion Power version of the the Fusion razors.  While I find the shave just as good as the manual fusions, I find the vibrating or "power action" annoying and unneccessary.  I am not sure if the power version costs more than the manual, but I would not pay more for it, it wouldn't be worth it.  Don't get me wrong, the gillette fusion line is fantastic - great smooth, close and comfortable shaves that last longer-and this razor does deliver those qualities as well, but I don't find that the power addition makes my shave any better.  I think the point was to help raise the hair up or something, so that your shave lasts longer and gets more hair.  I have both the manual and power versions and have found no difference in the quality of shave that they deliver.  If the vibrating feature doesn't annoy you, you would probably like this razor too.  I just wouldn't expect it to perform any better than the manual versions.
