FAQ


FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


What’s the difference between a Gillette 2-blade disposable and a Gillette MACH3 Turbo razor?
The 2-bladed Sensor disposable razor features a 2-blade array combined with the control and maneuverability of an ergonomically designed handle to give you precision and convenience. However, the Gillette MACH3 has 3 blades progressively positioned to cut hair gradually closer. So, for every stroke you take, it takes 3.

What’s the difference between a Gillette MACH3 Turbo razor and a Gillette Fusion5™ razor?
The Gillette MACH3 has 3 blades progressively positioned to cut hair gradually closer, so for every stroke you take, it takes 3. However, the 5-blade Shaving Surface Technology of Fusion5™ has progressive blade geometry and a Flexible Comfort Guard for a comfortable shave.

What are Microfins, and what do they do?
Microfins precede the blades and smooth out the skin before the first blade cuts the first hair. So you get a close, comfortable shave.

What does a Lubrastrip do?
A Lubrastrip is a thin strip that sits at the top of the razor, releasing lubricants while you shave, to produce a great glide. When you are no longer getting an optimal shave, the Lubrastrip fades to white, indicating that it might be time to change the blade.

Great razor!

I highly recommend the Mach 3 razor. Great close shaves day after day. The blades easily last a month for me so a great value too! I always have trusted Gillette!

Blade quality has deteriorated

The last pack of 4 blades I bought was a big disappointment and I am getting a max of 5 shaves per blade.

No, I do not recommend this product.

There are a few things that can impact how long a blade lasts. They include how tough and thick your hair is, how often you shave, on which areas you use it and how well you rinse it.
