Money’s been a little tight around my house lately, so like a lot of consumers, I’ve been trying to use up various products I have lying around my house instead of going out and buying new ones. I ran out of my normal shaving cream recently, but when I looked in my bathroom closed I found a can of Gillette Fusion HydraGel Shaving Cream that I had received for free as part of an in-store promotion when I bought a new razor a few months earlier. Normally, I prefer shaving cream that comes in a tube or a tub instead of a can, but in the spirit of being frugal, I decided I would use the Gillette shaving cream before purchasing any more.
The first thing I noticed about the Gillette Fusion HydraGel Shaving Cream was that it came out of the can as a thick gel instead of a fluffy foam like other shaving creams I’ve tried. I liked this as I prefer a thicker shaving product. As I applied the Gillette Fusion shaving cream to my face, it lathered up quickly and had a slightly cool sensation. The Gillette product definitely lathered up thinner than my usual shaving cream, and at first I wasn’t sure I liked that since that is what I switched to a more expensive shaving product in the first place.
As I began to shave, I noticed the Gillette Fusion cream seemed to work very well with my Fusion razor (which makes sense since they’re both made by the same company). My razor seemed to slide across my skin easier than with my normal shaving product, and it definitely rinsed off of my razor easier in between shaving strokes. Once I was done shaving, I noticed that it felt like I got a closer shave with the Gillette Fusion HydraGel Shaving Cream than my normal shaving cream. My skin also felt refreshingly moisturized, whereas my normal shaving cream leaves my skin feeling a little dry when I am done.
In the end, I really liked the Gillette Fusion HydraGel Shaving Cream, and would highly recommend it to other men. It provided a close and comfortable shaving experience, and I didn’t have to use a lot of the shaving cream to cover my face, so the can ended up lasting a very long time. Plus, the Gillette Fusion shaving cream is definitely cheaper than my normal shaving product, and anything that I can do to save money right now is alright in my book. Gillette Fusion HydraGel Shaving Cream can be found at pharmacies, groceries, and mass market retailers like Target and Wal-Mart nationwide.
