I gotta say when I saw the neat package this Gillette Fusion ProGlide Sensitive 2 in 1 Shave Gel in Ocean Breeze had, I got really curious and I had to try it out! Very neat dispenser, subtly smooth texture that's actually a little grippy and doesn't slip and slide like it's previous incarnation's buttery smooth metal shell. The fact that it's plastic made me think it was going to be thicker and heavier, but the can itself is suuuuper light! Takes a bit getting used to, if you ask me!
Now, on to the contents itself? I am at odds, to be honest. I like the stuff, and as picky as I am, the shave gel has to be good if I like it, but I'm too used to Gillette's previous sensitive shave gel to really dig into this. Maybe it has to grow on me, but here's why I think this:
+ SUPER soft and smooth foam, dispenses really cleanly, and evenly.
+ Very light, and given that I do have sensitive skin, I had zero adverse reactions (a BIG plus!)
+ Easy on the nose, very light scent, but not too much to bear.
+ Shaves very smoothly, I don't feel like I have to keep passing over the same area as much with my razor.
+ Buttery smooth finish after rinsing, it feels like I put lotion on my face… weird enough!
+ No nicks! First time using a new product that I don't have as many bumps or razor cuts on the first or second try, so that's great!
The not so good?
- It doesn't rinse as cleanly? It feels a little sticky to be honest.
- Since it feels sticky, it also seems like those stray hairs get stuck on my face more often
- The lotion feeling I mentioned earlier? Yeah, it's good and bad, it feels like I have residue on my face a bit. But maybe it's just my skin getting used to it.
- Doesn't feel like I'm getting as close a shave as I should be getting. Even if it does feel soft like my skin is being conditioned. Maybe it's the minty after scent? I dunno!
Would I recommend it? Absolutely! This is a great product, and given the chance, by all means try this out! Definitely give this product a thumbs up in my book, and hey, you may get an even better experience than I did! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
