  2. What's the difference between Gillette Power razors and non-Power razors?

    Gillette makes power razors that have the same core elements as a manual razor, but will vibrate when turned on. The power razors require a AAA battery and can be activated by pushing the power button on the handle. The power razor will automatically shut off after 8 minutes, but can be turned on again.All power razors are Shower-safe®. Additionally, all power razor cartridges are interchangeable with their base manual cartridge and in the case of the Fusion5 family of razors (Fusion5, ProGlide, and Styler), all Fusion5 cartridges will fit all Fusion5 handles.

  4. Which Gillette razor is the best for shaving and styling a beard?

    Any Gillette razor is capable of helping you manage your beard, but using a more advanced razor makes the job that much easier.A multiblade shaving system, such as the Gillette Fusion5 ProGlide Power Razor with FlexBall™ Technology, has blades spaced closer together to help reduce the pressure on each blade for more comfort and less irritation.

    If you need to do fine detail work on your beard, take a look at the Gillette Proglide Styler—Beard Trimmer & Power Razor.This 3-in-1 styler trims evenly, shaves closely, and edges accurately with a Braun®-engineered power trimmer designed for maneuverability and precision.
