When it comes to men, most women like firemen, policemen, soccer players named Beckham, or even the occasional doctor. Those are fine choices, I suppose, but when it comes to men in uniform, I’ll take a hunky military man any day of the week. Throw in a clean shave, and you had me at “Hello, sailor!”

Lucky for me, I ended up marrying a hunky military man of my own – my United States Navy veteran husband. While he’s been known to let his stubble grow on the weekends, by Monday morning he’s fresh-faced ready for work. As a former sailor, he knows a thing or two about razors. So when he recently got a chance to test out the new Gillette Fusion ProGlide razor with Flexball technology, I was anxious to hear his thoughts.

Before we get to his review of the new razor, I should take some time to explain exactly what it is about military men that makes me stand up at full attention. There’s just something about the strength and discipline of them. Something about the way the clean uniform and clean face matches the discipline on the inside. About how there’s usually a big, brave heart behind that smooth, clean-shaved face. Here’s my husband on watch sometime around 1995 and somewhere in the northern Atlantic Ocean – during his days in the United States Navy.

But enough about me and my fantasies, let’s talk about this razor.

I bought the Gillette Fusion ProGlide razor with Flexball technology for my husband at Walmart. The razor comes in two types – a standard razor and a powered razor with a battery inside to deliver soothing micropulses for a more comfortable shave.

The Gillette Fusion ProGlide has all sorts of fancy features designed to make your man’s shaving experience better. It’s got re-engineered blades with thinner, finer edges. It’s got an innovative microcomb to help guide hair to the blades (a feature that’s exclusive to the ProGlide Power). It’s also got a lubrastrip to keep skin lubricated and a precision-trimming blade for those hard-to-reach spots.

But the most remarkable feature of the razor is the Flexball technology, which allows the head of the razor to tilt and respond to contours of the face to make maximum contact with a minimum amount of effort.

So what’s the final verdict from my sailor about the Gillette Fusion ProGlide razor with Flexball technology? Well, he’s always been a Gillette guy, but this was his first time trying this new razor. In his expert opinion, it’s “the best damn razor a guy could ask for.” And as smooth and kissable as his face has been lately, I’d say it’s the best razor a wife could ask for, too!
