What is the difference between Gillette Fusion and ProGlide?

Is ProGlide better than Fusion5?

Our ProGlide Razor Blades too have an enhanced Lubrastrip with even more lubricants than our Fusion5 blades for an even smoother glide across your face.

What does the Gillette ProGlide power do?

But what gives the razor the “power” in its name is its battery-powered vibration. Turn it on and the razor begins vibrating. Gillette says the “micro pulses” produced help to reduce friction — meaning a smoother shave on your face.

Why does the Gillette ProGlide vibrate?

Its battery–powered handle vibrates the blade cartridge, which helps to stand up the whiskers and prepare them for cutting. In addition, the blade designed for the Power model includes an additional “comb” at the leading edge, which lifts and arranges the whiskers before the blades slice through them.
