The Gillette Fusion ProGlide is and has been one of the top men’s razors on the market for years now.

This slim-profiled razor is equipped with four, clean stainless steel blades that are even thinner than they have been on previous models, and boast to be thinner than other razors in the same category.

Those four thin blades provide are covered with a low-resistance coating which reduces the tug and pull of the blade on your facial hair, to provide an effortless, low-drag shave. This model has a built in blade stabilizer that holds each blade equidistant from the next, and makes it much smoother for rounding the unique contours of your face.

This razor also has a streamlined comfort guard which leverages excess shaving cream to provide optimum blade contact, to provide a shave that is perfectly close, without pulling too much on your hairs or your face.

The microcomb on this razor is designed to bring stubble to the blades, and the razor also has a newly enhanced lubricated strip that is infused with mineral oil and lubricant polymers that give you a smooth shave, for multiple uses.

Pros

  • Four thin blades that provide for an extremely close and incredibly smooth shave
  • A lubricated strip that is infused with mineral oils and special lubricants to keep your shaves really smooth
  • A built in microcomb that brings stubborn or low-lying stubble to the blades
  • This razor provides for a low drag shave, every time you use it, for multiple shaves in a row
  • Streamlined comfort guard which funnels shaving cream in just the right way to the blade, to provide optimum contact.
  • Blade stabilizer that perfectly separates and sets the blades, and also guides the razor along your face so that you can easily shave around all of your facial contours including your chin and cheekbones.
  • Lubricated strip that gives you a visual cue for when you need to change your razor blades

Cons

  • The razor blades are really expensive to replace
  • The razors actually fade pretty quickly, even if you aren’t shaving every day
  • Can cause occasional rashes and knicks on the face, so be careful
  • Some customers are saying that you are better off going with a cheaper razor, which will give you an equivalent shave for a cheaper price

The BIC Hybrid 3 disposable razors are the last razors that we are going to be looking at, for some of the best razors of 2017.

This razor uses three blades, in total, for a close and comfortable shave that you will enjoy.

It has an ergonomic handle with a full pivoting head, so that you can clean up all of the contours on your face with ease. They all come with an enhanced lubricated strip, that will give you a smooth shave and make it feel like the razor is gliding over your face.

Each one of these packages comes with it’s own handle and 12 razor blade cartridges, so these blades should last a while. These are by far the most affordable razors that we are looking at in this review.

Pros

  • The most affordable razors that we have looked at today
  • Ergonomic handle, for a comfortable grip while shaving
  • Each cartridge has three razor blades, so that you can get a close shave, every time
  • Lubricated strips on each razor makes sure that you get a smooth and comfortable shave
  • These razors all have pivoting heads, which makes it really easy to navigate all of the contours of your face

Cons

  • Blades dull very quickly
  • Cause knicks and soreness
  • Cheaply made
  • The ergonomics of the handle are questionable

Final Verdict

So which of these razors did we like the best? We personally like the Gillette Fusion Proglide the best overall. What we like about this razor is that it provides a quality shave, every time that you use it, and it doesn’t dull that quickly.

Sure, the replacement cartridges can get a little expensive, but if you want the best shave in 2017, we believe that this is it.
