The secret of Gillette Fusion revealed

Friday, May 8th, 2009

Watch Professor Regan’s…Health Spa tonight (Thursday 7th May) at 8pm on BBC Two.

Since Gillette’s first safety razor in 1901, the development in shaving technology has been astounding. But have you ever wondered just how the original single blade safety razor has developed into a must-have bathroom gadget with a 5 blade shaving surface? Well tonight you can find out.

For the first time ever, Gillette have thrown open the doors and invited BBC Two’s Professor Lesley Regan into its Global Research and Development Laboratory in Reading – birthplace of the award winning Fusion razor – to find out just how much science goes into the development of the humble razor and discover why more than 600 million men around the world use Gillette every day.

Don’t forget to watch!

Five things you might not know about Gillette Fusion:

1. Fusion’s blade edges are thinner than a surgeon`s scalpel.

2. Blade manufacturing uses more welds than many car manufacturers.

3. Fusion is protected by over 70 patents.

4. Fusion was tested by over 10,000 men before it was launched.

5. Every blade has multiple coatings to provide strength and comfort.

Kratos also needs a shave (PS3)

Wednesday, April 8th, 2009

I am a fan of razors, you all know that, but I’m also very interested by video games. Also, while reading my morning RSS, I’ve found this funny fake advert of Kratos, the hero of God of War on Playstation 3, having a shave! This has been done to illustrate a new deal Sony is trying to put in place to extract some more money from European wallets through a new deal inked with Target Entertainment, who will now be the consumer product licensing agent for all PlayStation software IP. So, you might see one day Kratos doing TV ads for Gillette Razors.

Gillette 1909 Safety Razor advert

Thursday, March 19th, 2009

This is Gillette’s adverts day! God I love looking at these old adverts for Gillette Safety Razors. I’ve found another great one, from 1909, it’s a French advert which shows the Gillette razor as the King of the razors (Le sacre du roi des rasoirs).The advert underlines that the safety razor does not need sharpening, and that it’s a great gift which worthes a lot and doesn’t cost much. For the French learners, safety razor is translated by “rasoir de sureté“.

Early Gillette Advert for Safety Razor

Thursday, March 19th, 2009

This morning I wrote a post about an advert from Gillette staring a baby shaving, that I though was created in the 50s. I was wrong! I’ve been looking deeper in it, and I’ve found out that this ad was in fact created in the early 1900s !!! There is another copy of this great Gillette’s ad, this time in English, as you can see below:

French Gillette advert: First Shave

Thursday, March 19th, 2009

As always, I was browsing the web to find some interesting shaving trivia to share with my visitors. Today, I have found a great advert from Gillette showing a baby starting shaving early with a Gillette double edge safety razor. This advert is in French, probably from the early 50s, no much more information about it, except that is made me laugh when I saw it.
