Three Blades Cut Closer Than One

It’s not just that three blades cut better than one, Gillette MACH3 three blade shaving technology features spring-mounted blades to adjust to different levels of shaving pressure and skin variations for more precision. Its three blades are progressively positioned to cut hair gradually closer. So, for every stroke you take, it takes three.

Indicator Lubrastrip for Improved Glide

The lubrastrip sits at the top of your razor and makes shaving smoother by delivering water-soluble lubricants to the skin to improve glide and comfort. It also fades to white to let you know that you are no longer getting an optimal shave. Easily fixed with another MACH3 blade.

Microfins Make a Big Difference

The skin guard on the blades is comprised of soft microfins that precede the blades and help stretch and prepare the skin before the first blade cuts the first hair for a close, comfortable shave.

Tips For a Better Shave

Is it better to use hot, cold or warm water to shave?

Warm water is always better 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 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, texture or colour. Shaving does, however, alter the tip shape of the regrown hair, which may initially change the way hair feels as it grows back. But if hair is left to regrow completely, it will return to its former state.

In what direction should I shave to achieve the better 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, your blade has dulled considerably; increasing the likelihood of nicks and cuts. Tell her to try a razor specifically designed for the way a woman shaves, such as Gillette Venus Embrace.

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.

This is, quite simply, the best disposable razor available on the market today (12 September 2004, to be exact!).
The three razor strips are independantly sprung, and combined with the wide lube strips and rubber strips, the overall effect is a very close but very comfortable shave. I am prone to razor-burn, but have experienced less discomfort with these razors.
These are the most expensive on the market, but they are also the best. And....ahem! The price on Amazon? Thank you very much!

The key point for most buyers of these blades is probably that (as supplied to me by Amazon themselves, not an Amazon Marketplace seller) they are the genuine Gillette article, therefore having all the Gillette characteristics and lasting just as long. Some reviewers report they did not receive genuine Gillette blades. Whether they bought direct from Amazon or from a Marketplace Seller, I do not know.

Not that I have anything against Marketplace Sellers; and you can always return the goods and/or complain to Amazon if you feel you were mis-sold something.

So, in my case, a satisfied customer, with no reason to give anything less than 5 stars. I have been using a Mach3 Turbo Razor since it was first launched in the UK (c.1998?) and have no present thought of moving on to anything else.

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 am a great fan of Mach3 Turbo baldes as they give a clean shave without causing skin nicks and the blades last me for a week - seven shaves. They are not cheap but Amazon has the most competitive prices.

Still using this ancient shaving system as see no need for 5 blade cartridges at even more exhorbitant list prices!!

Product arrived in good time. Probably a touch cheaper than buying on the high street but I don't understand why a product that costs pennies to make has to be so expensive - this is not a criticism of Amazon but it is one in respect of Gillette...

been using Mach3 for years and was pleasantly surprised of a new blade that I thought would be even better then the old one. But this blade is totally inferior to the standard Mach3. why? First of all it doesn't cut as good and second it doesn't last even half the time from the original one. I will definitely stick to the original model in the future. I though it would be strange that this new blade is more cheap then the old one. But now it all makes sense when I tried it.

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