Easy way to Shave your Back
#3 Gillette Fusion Proglide Styler 3-In-1 Men’s Body Groomer With Beard Trimmer
Men seeking an affordable full body hair groomer and trimmer will be well pleased with this review of the Gillette Fusion Proglide Styler. With a suggested retail price of just $20, the Fusion Proglide shaver has been rated by users to deliver decent body grooming performance at a good price. This electric trimmer is designed to shave and trim facial hair as well as hair located on other parts of the body. It is comfortable to hold and easily reaches difficult areas. As far as providing a clean shave, the Fusion Proglide removes hair on about the same level as a four-blade razor.
However, it performs best at trimming, especially when done on a regular basis. If you simply want to maintain a close shave, this product may be a bit of overkill. Those men with thick, coarse or unkempt hair more consistently provide a lower ranking for this product. The Gillette Fusion Proglide Styler contains 3 combs which can be used to obtain various hair lengths. Using the electric shaver without the combs provides a close shave.
The 3 combs provide a cutting range of approximately 2, 4 and 6 millimeters, although they are simply labeled comb 1, 2 and 3. A possible downside is that the blades without combs measures only 2.5 cm and with combs only 3 cm so it doesn’t provide fast trim work when you’re in a hurry. The Gillette Fusion Proglide also contains Precision Edging Blade on the reverse side which provides top micro-trimming or detailing.
This shaver/trimmer utilizes a snap-on-snap-off blade cartridge which is included in the initial kit. The cartridge contains a strip that fades from green to white to let you know when it is becoming dull. When it’s time to change blades, any cartridge designed for Gillette Fusion Razors can be used. The Fusion Proglide can be used with or without shaving cream (those with coarser hair may choose to use cream).
It can also be used in the shower and its comfortable rubber grip makes it easy to maneuver in wet conditions. The Fusion Proglide is not a rechargeable model and, therefore, does not require a power cord or downtime for charging. Instead, it operates on one AA battery which is included with the initial purchase.Pros:
- Extremely affordable
- Operates on one AA battery: no need for recharging
- Easily changeable and replaceable blades with dullness detection strips
- Close shave surface with 3 combs and trimmer for length control and detailing
