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.

Mach 3 turbo

I have been using Mach 3 and Mach 3 turbo blades for over 20 years the upgrade from the 3 to the 3 turbo was great. The new dark blue strip upgrade has been the worse upgrade by far. Lacks quality

Newer Mach 3 Turbo Blades Dull

Have used Mach 3 Turbo blades for years. The new blue strip blades are horrible. Doesn’t even come close to the shave I used to get with the green strips. Very disappointed, use 2 blades per week.

No, I do not recommend this product.

Got me to switch brands!

I don't like 5-blade's and have been using another brand 3-blade, for many years. I decided to give the MACH3 Turbo a try. On the first shave, it was so smooth that I thought I had left the guard on!

Yes, I recommend this product!
