Whereas I love to get flowers or breakfast in bed or spa certificates for Mother's Day, Father's Day presents around here tend to be more practical. Since Alfie knows he's not getting a new motorcycle for Father's Day or anything hi-tech, he likes presents like toolkits or gadgets to help around the house or grooming items he uses every day, like aftershave or cologne or shavers (but please, no soap-on-a-rope, he never uses that!).
Speaking of shavers, Gillette's newest razor, the Gillette Fusion ProGlide, is now available in Target stores and other retailers. It would make a great practical Father's Day present from the kids (there you go Alfie, it's practical and it's hi-tech). We received a sample of this new razor to review, and I'm here to report that no, it does NOT have 25 blades -- "just" 5, like older models. But the blades are much thinner than the older models -- so they tug on the skin less. The package also says the Fusion ProGlide has a "reformulated lubrication strip with more lubricants and a touch of mineral oil" , which translates to less irritated skin even if Dad shaves every day.
