*Update: The Gillette Fusion ProGlide is now available in the UK and worldwide from Niven & Joshua.

Calling all apes and gentleman in the United States – the new Gillette Fusion ProGlide razors, cartridges and Gillette Fusion ProSeries Skin Care products are now officially available in stores across North America. I covered the unveiling of the ProGlide on Ape to Gentleman here a few months ago and I must reiterate, doesn’t it look great! Combined with the frankly astounding amount of research Gillette carry out on shaving functionality and comfort, we are sure it’s going to be a big hit. For apes and gentleman in the UK and around the world, we are looking at around 12-18 months before it reaches our shores. We can’t knock our current choice, the Gillette Fusion razors, but we can hope the ProGlide will be even better!

Ape to Gentleman like this: Gillette’s Most Comfortable Shave Guaranteed – Gillette is offering a money back guarantee on Gillette Fusion ProGlide razors.

Along side the Gillette ProGlide razors sits the Gillette Fusion ProSeries Skin Care products and they line up as follows:

  • Gillette Fusion ProSeries Thermal Scrub – gently warms, helps to clean and clear away dirt and oil and helps soften facial hair before shaving. Heating technology is activated on contact with water to provide warming comfort; and a mild soap-free system cleans skin by removing oils (sebum) and dirt while helping to soften the hair, making it easier to cut. Small particles then help exfoliate dead, dry skin cells to help create an even, clear path for the razor.
  • Gillette Fusion ProSeries Sensitive Face Wash – suitable for everyday use on sensitive skin, and uses a mild soap-free system formulated with aloe to effectively clean without over drying.
  • Gillette Fusion ProSeries Intense Cooling Lotion – instantly cools and hydrates just shaved skin for an incredibly comfortable end to your shave. Its Dual-Cooling complex is designed to extend the cooling effect without drying the skin and instantly hydrates to help soothe and refuel men’s skin by sealing in moisture.
  • Gillette Fusion ProSeries Instant Hydration UV Moisturiser + SPF15 – a lightweight, non-greasy moisturiser, with Vitamin E, Vitamin B3 and Pro-Vitamin B5 and SPF 15 UV Protection. The formula instantly hydrates skin and provides hydration throughout the day to help reduce dryness and tightness.

We are thoroughly looking forward to letting the new Gillette ProGlide and ProSeries range loose on our beards.
