Gillette frequently asked questions

  • How long does a Gillette cartridge or blade last? When should I change it?

    Every cartridge in the Fusion family should deliver up to a month of shaves, but this can vary depending on:

    • How tough and thick your hair is
    • How often you use the razor and on which areas of the body
    • How well you rinse the razor
    • To get the best shave, we recommend you change your cartridge at the first sign of blade dullness or discomfort

    If you are using any other razor with an indicator strip (e.g., MACH3), we would generally recommend you change the cartridge when the indicator strip turns from blue/green to white. For some it may turn to white very quickly or very slowly depending on shaving habits and grooming products used. Continue to change your blade at the first sign of blade dullness.

  • Are Gillette blades recyclable?

    As well as fully recyclable packaging for our blades and razors, we’ve partnered with Terracycle so that you can recycle your used blades and razors. For more information and how to sign up to our recycling scheme visit our dedicated page.

  • What’s the best routine to shave if I have sensitive skin?

    Sensitive skin falls under many categories such as eczema, dry skin or razor burn after you shave to name a few. Gillette have designed the SkinGuard Sensitive range to cater for men who experience irritation when shaving as a result. For tips on shaving with sensitive skin visit the dedicated Gillette blog.

  • Which Gillette razor should I use to shave my head?

    Great question! You can use most Gillette Razors to shave your head, but one of the best options is Fusion5 ProShield as it offers lubrication before and after the blades to shield your skin while you shave.

    • Shower and shampoo before you shave to soften your head
    • Lather with a shave gel to help prepare and moisturise your scalp
    • Use smooth, light strokes, and shave from front to back to shave the top and sides of your scalp
    • Using a mirror while shaving the back of your head will help you see what you are doing. Then use upstrokes, using light pressure, letting the razor do the work, and rinse often
    • Feel your scalp; if you feel any missed spots, re-lather before shaving again

    More top tips:

    • Feel your scalp for bumps or moles before starting to make sure you can do this by yourself
    • Moisturise your scalp and continue to do so even on days you do not shave, to help prevent dryness and flaking
    • For longer hair, we recommend shaving with an electric trimmer before carrying out a wet shave
