Earlier this year, Gillette launched a much talked about campaign: ‘We Believe: The best we can be.’ This campaign got everybody talking and highlighted so many different stereotypes on the word ‘masculinity’. I perceived this ad as a positive as it showed the world as it is today. Highlighting that those old, stereotypical ways of treating women and how that ‘boys will be boys’ mantra is no longer acceptable!


Whilst I think that there is still a long way to go, what I liked about the ad was that our society and what we should do as a collective is begin to work on changing those old stereotypes to show the younger, new generation on how to behave and what is and isn’t acceptable.

Gillette was one of the first ever shaving products that I used when I was younger and I feel that they play a key part in a teenage boys life whilst growing up! That experience of father and son bonding over how to shave correctly has almost become a ritual for so many.


I had recently been gifted a subscription kit by Gillette and you can select a kit from 3 options:

  1. Mach3 Starter Kit

  2. Fusion5 Starter Kit

  3. ProGlide Starter Kit

I received the ProGlide Starter Kit and within the neatly packaged blue box contained:

  • ProGlide handle

  • 2 ProGlide replacement blades

  • 75ml shave gel

  • Razor travel case

The ProGlide features a 5 bladed razor, indicator lubrastrip, precision trimmer and flexball technology. As I applied the shave gel across my face, I liked that it didn’t feel too harsh when on my skin nor did it cause any skin irritation! I then used the razor across my face and with the flexball technology, this allowed the razor to move freely whilst still having control over it. The handle was sturdy and the razor eliminated most of my facial hair easily!


This subscription kit is ideal for somebody who is looking to take that next step from a classic razor, and wants something a little more sturdy that feels more advanced which delivers great results! The kit is worth £17.37, however, if you select this when signing up for a subscription kit, then it will be worth £6.95 saving you £10.42. It’s a no brainer right?
