I hate shaving. It’s amazing.
From the time that I was a kid, I was super-excited for this rite of passage. I used to watch my father do it every morning; the ritual of washing his face, lathering it with shaving cream and then shaving away a day’s worth of stubble.
By the time I needed to shave every day, I had completely lost interest.
Ritual had become obligation; one in which I avoid at all costs.
One of the best things about sitting in front of a computer all day is I don’t have to shave.
One of the main reasons is I have sensitive skin and although dragging a piece of sharp steel across my face, cutting hairs as close to the surface of my cheek as possible, sounds great, it actually can do a number on my face. The other issue is I have a tough beard. I know, sensitive face, tough beard…I’m a riddle wrapped in an enigma.
So when I finally do shave, I pretty much destroy the blade.
Recently I had the opportunity to sample the new Gillette Fusion ProShield, and I’m glad I did. Available exclusively at Sam’s Club, the Fusion ProShield offers lubrication before and after the blade shields, which means it really does a great job with my sensitive skin. Take a look:
Featuring Gillette’s thinnest, finest blades and Flexball technology (the razor actually pivots from side to side), the Fusion ProShield creates less tug and pull for incredible comfort. The razor also features a precision trimmer on back for accurate edging (You know, Vanilla Ice style).
Packaged with 9 cartridges the Sam’s Club pack from Gillette lasts up to 9 months. I can’t say using this razor makes me want to lather up every morning, but if I had to, I wouldn’t complain.
