Guide Review - Gillette Fusion Power MVP Razor- Battery Operated
The razors larger handle feels more comfortable in your hand than many of the dainty razors available today. It has a larger handle that allowed for more grip and better control. I liked the five blades. I got a closer and better feeling shave. For those with sensitive skin, the vibrating blades provide a gentle massaging sensation that makes the blades all but disappear.
The blade also had a strip that turned white when it needed to be changed which was great! I never had a dull blade that I forgot about. For trimming around beard lines and side burns, the finger pad provides a steady grip for precise even trimming.
I did foresee a problem for men with a smaller hand. The bigger handle may feel bulky and cumbersome to those with smaller hands. A rechargeable option would have been nice since I don’t normally keep batteries in the bathroom. As for all specialty razors, the cost of refill cartridges can be pricey.
I have to admit that it is one of the nicer specialty razors available. Its comfortable design and features assure you that it was designed for a man. The vibrating feature is a must for those that feel like they are tearing away flesh every time they shave.
