In light of the Goldman Sachs fraud charges on Friday, I’m going to lead with full disclosure:
Gillette® reached out to me, among other bloggers, a few weeks ago asking if I would mind test-driving their new razor;
They sent me a nice box with their new PowerGlide? razor, a USB drive with product info, and some shaving products to try;
They are offering to send a free trial razor to the first 100 blog readers to respond through the widget below;
Their packet included a postcard that started, "As one of the most influential bloggers in the country…", which I perceive to be a Get Out of Jail Free card.
That all said, I am also extremely serious about shaving, and would never hold back about a product I don’t like (for proof, read my four year old Schick Quattro review). The Middle Eastern heritage on my father’s side means my 5 o’clock shadow shows up around 2:30, and my sensitivity — it’s my skin I’m referring to there — makes it hard for me to shave every day without nicks & cuts. I’ve used dozens of different razors, shave creams, pre-shave oils, and balms so I have a frame of reference indicative of my status as "one of the most influential bloggers" in my family over the age of 30 that writes about men’s grooming.
Normally I would be wary of a razor that has this many registration & trademarks in its name — seriously, three? — but I’ve used the razor once already sans battery-powered pulsating feature and I won’t spoil the review except to say it’s a quality shave and I have a lot to say about it already. I’m going to use it at least 2-3 more times before passing a final judgment, which I expect to do at the end of this week. In the meantime, to be one of the lucky 100 to receive a free Gillette® Fusion® ProGlide?trial razor, click on the widget below…
