Review: Gillette Fusion Proglide Sensitive Alpine Clean Shaving Gel

Gillette Fusion Proglide Sensitive Alpine Clean Shaving Gel

Gilette Fusion proglide sensitive shaving gel, 2 IN 1 – Gel + Skincare Dermatologist-tested to be gentle on skin with an Alpine fresh smell. A specialised formula for sensitive skin allows for a close shave without irritating the skin.

Features at a Glance

  • Hydrates to soften hair and helps protect your skin
  • Improves razor glide for a close comfortable shave
  • Comes with Alpine Clean Scent


Features of Gilette Fusion Proglide Shaving Gel


  • You don’t need to use much as a little goes a long way
  • You can actually feel the results, your skin does feel softer and less sensitive especially if you’re shaving your whole head
  • I love the little gel gauge level on the side of the can and the fact it doesn’t rust on the bottom when left in the shower.


To be honest I don’t see many cons to using this product other than the price. £4.99 170 ML | £2.94 per 100ML

I know there are a lot cheaper products on the market but you defiantly know when you’re using one of them. Gillette products have always been good but on the pricey side. This one, however, is worth the money and still not as expensive as some of the top brands.

My Opinion

Considering I have been shaving my head for 20 yrs I know a thing or two about shaving gels and foams! I have tried plenty of brands and rejected many of them – this one, however, is one of my favourites for the price and the results. Like most gels it comes out a clean blue colour and smells fresh… alpine fresh, to be correct 😉

You don’t need to use much as a little goes a long way.

I have used different brand before (some of these being the old Gillette ones), where you needed to dispense more to finish the job. Trust me when shaving your head you need to make sure you have a good covering and don’t have to reapply, this is when you end up cutting yourself – ouch!

The product lathers up really well and keeps its consistency once on the face and head – I have been really impressed with the feeling it gives when shaving, you can actually feel the razor glide through the gel without any snagging.

You need this when shaving your head, this sounds daft but you need to ‘trust’ the product if you shave fast like me, you need to know there is going to be gel there when you’re dashing around with the razor!

Final thoughts

Gillette always seems to get things right and with this product, I really think they have hit the mark in more ways than one. Firstly the product seem to actually do what it offers – I have been using it now for a couple of months and I have not cut myself, had any razor burn marks and after shaving I do notice my skin both on my face and head feels smoother.

I also really like the product features, the gel gauge (there is nothing worse than running out mid shave), the rust-proof base and the clean way it dispenses the gel in the first place – you don’t seem to get much waste. All in all, this is a good product and for anyone shaving his or her head for the first time, use this.
