Smooth Summer with Gillette Flexball

Do you like for your man to have a nice smooth shave?  My husband hates to shave!  And I have to admit, I sometimes actually like the “scraggles.”  I sometimes even encourage him to just grow a full beard, but he says that “it itches after a while.”  (And he doesn’t really like the greys that show up. Oh no!) So basically he shaves…..then lets it grow for several days…and then shaves again when he “can’t stand it any longer.”  It’s a never-ending cycle!  Enter the Gillette Fusion ProGlide!

While I actually like the beard….and even the “3-5 day shadow” sometimes you just gotta have a clean shave!  Mostly I just want him to have a clean shave if we are going somewhere special:  A family get together, a dinner, a night out, or certain school events.

Gary is not really picky about most products we use in the house, and when it comes to shaving, he’s used nice manual and power razors, but he’s also used one of my little Gillette two-blade razors.  Then one day we were walking through Walmart, and we saw the working power display of the new Gillette Fusion ProGlide with Flexball Technology, and he immediately took notice!  Weeks later we were watching the commercial on television, and he said, “I really need to get one of these razors.”

The following week, I went back to Walmart and found it in the shaving aisle, along with the other Gillette Products.  (Right now most stores have  the special display for the Flexball Razor, so you can’t miss it!)

Gary grew out his facial hair for a few days so that we could give the new Flexball a good test run!  Here he is in his most natural state (and when I say “natural state”  I’m including the Alabama t-shirt & hat as well! haha!).

When I asked what he thought about the new razor, he said he really liked it. He told me that he usually showers before shaving, as this makes it easier to remove the hair;  however, he decided to just use a hot wet towel instead, and he was amazed at how easily the hair was still removed.

The flexball really sets this Gillette razor apart from all others, as it responds to facial contours for a nice and even shave.

The razor also has 5 thin and fine blades, which are designed to decrease the tug and pull, and the discomfort that comes with other razors, for a nice shave that is easy on sensitive skin.

Gary also told me that he liked the razor because it didn’t have all the hair and gunk on it afterwards, which you normally get with a lot of other razors that he’s used.  Finally he said that these razor blades would certainly last MUCH longer than others he’s used recently.

And of course he got a nice, clean shave!  Here is the clean-shaved version of my hubby:

And finally here is the Before and After Picture:

He certainly came out smooth!  And I’m sure he will look forward to using this razor again and again.  Check out more Smooth Faces of Summer, via Pinterest:
