Gillette Collaborating With Stark Industries


In what may be the most perfect union of superpowers, Gillette and Stark Industries have joined together with one goal in mind: create one of the best razors in the world. In fact, Gillette has allowed Stark Industries to take over its R&D department at World Shaving Headquarters to deliver an epic shave using Avengers-inspired technology.

“Gillette has developed one of the best shaving technologies around, but we wanted to see how Avengers-inspired technology would work in a razor”

Of course, Stark Industries is no stranger to the toughest technological challenges, having conquered robotics, aeronautics, fringe science, and weaponry. Yet, the task at hand is a tough one: setting out to build a razor that rivals Gillette’s best razor to date, the Fusion ProGlide with FlexBall Technology. But Stark Industries is up for the challenge.

“Gillette has developed one of the best shaving technologies around, but we wanted to see how Avengers-inspired technology would work in a razor,” said Abe Zimmer of Stark Industries.

The Gillette/Stark Industries collaboration has already taken the city of Boston by storm, as a joint Gillette/Stark Industries sign now adorns the top of Gillette’s global headquarters. And Stark Industries is taking this mission very seriously. Its R&D team has spent the last week using its own famous technology to build four prototypes of razors that promise to set a new standard for all razors going forward.

The prototypes have been modeled after members of the Avengers: Iron Man, The Hulk, Captain America, and Thor.

The Repulsor1 with Exoblade has an Arc Reactor Technology that generates a perpetual energy supply to obliterate face hairs with Uni-beam pulse bolts. The Gillette XL Gamma with stress-triggered sensors and an unstable molecular structure can increase up to 700% in razor mass and brute shaving force. The Gillette Ultra Strike is rebuilt with Super Soldier Technology and has a rare Vibranium-coated Shield Cartridge that shoots out from the handle to cut targeted hairs. And finally, the Gillette Thunder scorches hairs to the follicle with micro-lightning and an honor based gyro-gravity field to make it borrow-proof.

“Certainly, Stark Industries has access to technology much different than Gillette has developed over our 110 years in the grooming business,” said Stew Taub, Director of Shave Care R&D at Gillette. “We are excited to see what happens in testing as the Avengers-inspired technology is incorporated into the razors.”

Sadly these razors are only prototypes and not available to the general public but perhaps with a Hulk sized outcry of demand, Gillette might consider releasing these fun collectible grooming tools to the pop-culture obsessed rabid fan base?

The Gillette ProGlide FlexBall Razor


The Gillette Fusion ProGlide FlexBall Razor adds an actual ball between the blades and the handle, allowing the head to move, adjust and pivot to follow the contours of your face, shaving more hairs with each stoke and keeping missed hairs to a minimum. The razor utilizes a five-blade shaving surface and a Lubrastrip for a more comfortable shave.


A reimagined handle that gives the cartridge a fuller range of motion, responding to contours and maintaining close contact to get virtually every hair and a more ergonomic grip allows for precise control.

Go to www.gillette.com to pre-order the razor. The product will be available on June 9, 2014 for a suggested retail price of $11.49. A power version will cost $12.59.

James Bond 007 Fragrance

The new James Bond 007 fragrance, which launches next month, will help gentlemen capture the aroma of the world’s most famous spy.

2012 is a big year for Bond fans, as not only does it mark the 50th anniversary of the James Bond film franchise, but it will also see the launch of new movie Skyfall — which premieres in October.

Eon Productions, which produces the James Bond films, has joined Procter & Gamble Co. to create the new scent, which has notes including fresh apple, cardamom and sandalwood.

The 007 logo is embossed on the front of the bottle, whose silver twist cap has been designed to look like one of the sleuth’s gadgets.

The print ad campaign, which features a silhouette of a man who could be a member of MI6, has been designed by Greg Williams, who has created campaigns for five James Bond films.

Prices will start at $30 for a small bottle, with the launch kicking off at prestigious UK department store Harrods August 15. It will then be rolled out in other European countries and destinations including North America, India and China as of September.
