We always want you to get the best shave, so we're sorry to hear that our Fusion 5 blades were not giving you the best shave. It may be helpful to know that to get the best shave we expect, wash the area with warm water and mild soap to help remove natural oils and sweat. This also makes hair softer and easier to cut. The best time to shave is right after a hot shower! Apply plenty of shaving gel, foam or cream to soften the hair and reduce friction. Also, be sure to shave in the direction of hair growth for a more comfortable shave, or against the direction of growth for an even smoother shave. We'd like to learn more about your experience and share this with our Quality teams, so when you have a moment, would you please give us a call at (800) 445-5388?
