But, you have to start somewhere and men can do that with shaving every day to be clean. If women can spend hours on grooming to look good, we would like men to do the same not just for us, but to be more attractive, as well. I have always felt if a man is clean- shaven, half the job is done as far as grooming is concerned. Shaving is an important aspect for men and I am glad that Gillette has launched the Gillette Fusion Power Phantom range- a razor so superior in technology which makes shaving most effortless. Now, every Indian man, from different walks of life, has no excuse not to shave every day.”
