Gillette MACH3 razor blades are best compatible with the Gillette MACH3 men’s razor.
The MACH3 razor blades are thinner than a surgeon's scalpel and give you a closer shave* in one stroke. A trusted choice, the MACH3 continues to give men around the world a good start to their day. These razor blades combine a number of features to deliver performance.

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.
Gillette Fusion ProGlide power with FlexBall technology, the razor that responds to contours for maximum contact*. Gillette´s blades are now 2x preferred when used with the Fusion ProGlide Power handle with FlexBall technology **. The FlexBall Technology enables the blades to pivot front to back and side to side while the re-engineered low cutting force blades feature thinner, finer* edges with enhanced, low-resistance coating to cut effortlessly through hair with less tug and pull than with Fusion.

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.
