Today I am going to switch gears for a minute to talk about men’s skincare. There is something about a freshly clean shaven man. I love the scent of the shaving gel and aftershave, the baby soft skin left behind, everything! My husband, Mike, is actually in the military and being clean shaven is a way of life for him. He has used several different razors from all sorts of brands in his 15 years in the Navy and has always gravitated towards the Gillette brand. I recently picked up the Gillette Fusion Proglide razor and 12 Refill Cartridges for him and he actually said that it felt smooth on his skin. I will get into more on that in a bit, I want to tell you why a clean shave is important to him!
I said before, my husband has been in the Navy for 15 years now. He made Chief (E7) a couple years ago and it is very important for someone in that position to set an example for all others. He is driven and his drive got him to where he is today, and there is no stopping him. One of the quirkily things about him is that he is a stickler for dress code and expects all of the people that work for him uphold the appearance of the military. That means clean cut, clean shaven, and squared-away.
It doesn’t matter if my husband is scaling walls or standing at attention, he demands that himself and his subordinates look professional. I know you have heard the term “If you look good, you feel good.” If you feel good it emanates from you! When you look and feel good a confidence has been stirred from within and all of the sudden anything is possible! That is why he uses Gillette.
The Gillette Fusion Proglide is actually a razor that has five ultra-thin blades. The new thinner blade design allows for no tugging and pulling at the skin when it is gliding through the hair; thinner blades also allow the hair that is shaven away to leave the razor easily without clogging. The razor also has a MicroComb that actually guides stubble to the blades.
Right now the Gillette Fusion Proglide razor is on sale at Walmart for $5 and the 12 Cartridge Refills are just $44.97! Did you hear me correctly? That is less than $3.75 per refill! If you compare that to the price per refill in the 4 pack you are saving 75 cents per cartridge! That is saving $9.00 overall on 12! I love a deal and I know you do too! The deal was so good on the razors that I actually picked up the LAST ONE on my store’s shelf and there were only 2 of the 12 Cartridge Refill packs so I left only one behind. People know a good deal when they see it! Run out and get your (or your significant other’s) Gillette Fusion Proglide as soon as possible!
My husband said that the Gillette Fusion Proglide felt good when he used this blade to shave. He said it was comfortable, easy to maneuver, and it actually provided such a close shave that he had to make less passes with the razor so it cut his shaving time down. After some begging be finally agreed to allow me to film/photograph him shaving. He isn’t the kind of person that would ever let me get him on the internet (he doesn’t even have a Facebook account) so I thank him greatly for his demo! :)
We know my husband loves a clean shaven face for lots of reasons but what about me? Speaking of a clean shaven face from a personal perspective, I automatically think of a man in uniform and I know that is because of my husband. I think that a smooth, soft face is sexy. Clean shaven to me says dignified, powerful, smart, strong, professional, focused… I want all of that, I have all of that! Thanks Gillette for making such great products time after time!
