I am like most people who like getting freebies in my mailbox. I mean who wouldn’t like getting a little something every know and then. It also looks good on companies when they do mass advertising this way. Why? Because it gives people a chance to actually sample a product they may end up purchasing in the future, and companies like Gillette can afford to do this type of advertising, because they said behind their products and they know people will come back for more.
Recently, Gillette was offering a sample of their new fusion proglide razor that was just released this month. So of course I signed up to get one in the mail. The sample came super fast.
After my husband used this razor he stated this was by far the best razor he has ever used, and said it was about time they got it right. Usually when he shaves the razor pulls at his whiskers, with the Proglide it was a smooth shave. I also tried this on my legs, I wanted to try it out as well. It also passed the test for me.
I only found one thing that makes me cringe about this razor and that is the price of the blades. It costs 22.97 for a pack of 6 at Wal-mart. Although the blades are a bit steep, they last for several shaves so the price will end up being cheaper in the long run. Just having the extra 23 dollars though to spend on razors is the next thing. I would love to see them come out with a 2 pack.
