Gillette MACH3 Blades

The MACH3 blades are thinner than a surgeon's scalpel and give you a close shave in a single stroke. A trusted choice, the MACH3 continues to give men around the world an ideal start to their day.

Features and benefits

5 blades

1. 3 blades

The MACH3 blades are spring-mounted to adjust to different levels of shaving pressure and skin variations.

5 blades

2. Microfins

The skin guard is comprised of soft microfins to help stretch the skin ahead of the first blade.

5 blades

3. Lubrastrip

The lubrastrip delivers water soluble lubricants to the skin to improve the glide. It also fades to white when you are no longer getting an optimal shave to indicate when it's time to replace the blade.

Q and A Shaving Tips

Is it better to use hot, cold, or warm water to shave?
Warm water is best for hydrating beard hair. Soaking in warm water softens hair and causes it to expand, making it 70 per cent easier to cut.

What is the best way to avoid razor burn?
If the skin is not properly prepared before shaving or if the blade on your razor is dull, you are more likely to end up with razor burn. Make sure to hydrate hair in warm water for up to three minutes and apply plenty of shave gel. Also, you may want to consider changing the blade on your razor at the first sign of dullness or discomfort.

Does shaving make your hair grow back thicker?
Scientists at Gillette have conducted extensive testing on the effects shaving has on both male and female hair growth, texture and colour. This testing has proven that shaving does not affect hair growth, colour, or texture. Shaving does, however, alter the tip shape or the regrown hair, which may initially change the way hair feels as it grows back. However, if hair is left to regrow completely, it will return to its former state.

In what direction should I shave to achieve the best shave?
Men's facial hair tends to grow in different directions. Start by shaving with light, gentle strokes with the grain. Then, if necessary, go against the grain for an even closer shave.

How do I avoid nicks and cuts, particularly above my upper lip?
The area above the upper lip is tricky for many men. To help avoid nicks and cuts, always leave it for last. Apply plenty of shave gel and allow this area to soak up as much lather as possible. When shaving, don't apply too much pressure. The Gillette Fusion ProGlide Precision Trimmer is really useful when shaving under the nose.

Is it okay to let my girlfriend or wife borrow my men's razor?
For both hygiene and performance, it's not a good idea to share your razor with your partner. Women have a much larger area to shave and you may find that after only a few shaves, you blade has dulled considerably; increasing the likelihood of nicks and cuts.

As with the last review for these Gillette Mach 3 Blades.

These blades last me about 4 shaves, they are blunt and I think fake not real.

Do not buy

UPDATE 18/10/13

Brought some more blades from the Supermarket, the blades are much different, 100% better, than to two packs I brought from Amazon.

But now have just placed an Oder with Amazon , for a non cartridge razor, sick of paying the high prices for these Cartridges.

I agree with an earlier reviewer that these blades don't seem quite right - at least not the ones I got. The usual Mach 3 blades are very smooth, while these are scratchy. They may be cheaper, but I won't be buying these again.

By Mr. Mischief TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 10 Jan. 2011
I first tried Gillette Mach 3 blades around 10 years ago and, although they were comfortable, I felt that they didn't shave as close as I would have liked, so I went back to my trusty Sensors. I tried them again a few weeks ago - more out of curiosity than anything else - and got something of a shock; I'm not sure if my beard has softened in the last 10 years, or if Gillette has just gotten better at making blades, but the difference between then and now was amazing.

My first (post weekend) Mach 3 shave was close, clean, painless and virtually free of cuts. Having been down this road before, I guessed that the second would be much less effective, but I was wrong as it was almost as good as the first, and the third was about the same. I got almost two weeks' worth of excellent-to-good weekday shaving from each blade I tried, which I have had before with other blades but only ever accompanied by the seemingly ubiquitous "red raw" look. The shave the Mach 3's give is much smoother than any other blade I've tried and, even though I still get cuts, instances of shaving rash are much less frequent.

Of course, nothing in life is free and this cutting ability does come at a price as I took what can only be described as a gouge out of my chin as a testament to their sharpness, so it is important that you take your time shaving and treat the Mach 3's with respect each and every morning. But if you put in the effort and don't go at it like a loon, the Mach 3 blades will reward you with a shave of unequalled quality, at least in the cartridge blade world.

Do not be fooled by cheap imitations from e-bay. These may cost slightly more but at least they are the real deal.

What a suprise to see this odd item while browsing for an mp3 player, but a welcome one at that.
As any guy will tell you Razor blades are expensive and decent ones like Gillette Mach 3 blades are especially expensive but when you consider you can pay £5-6 for 4 blades and Amazon offer you 8 for £8.47 your making a saving.
So next time your browsing for that CD or DVD remeber that you can pick up those razor blades to and not pay postage and packing. It just gives that little advantage to ordering a DVD or CD knowing you can pick up your razors to at a lower price, cheers amazon a real nifty idea.

I too wanted to make use of the free postage and packing on my book order - and this is just the thing! Does what it says on the package and saves you money into the bargain - thanks Amazon, another item for which I don't have to visit a supermarket to purchase!
