FAQ


What’s the difference between a Gillette 2-blade disposable and a Gillette MACH3 razor?
Gillette MACH3 razors have better blades with sharper edges* for a more comfortable shave than Gillette 2-blade disposables. These blades are strengthened with an atomic carbon coating to help keep them sharper for longer. Gillette MACH3 razors have a skin guard with 10 flexible fins made from soft elastomer. They gently stretch the skin to create a smooth, even surface before the blades.

What’s the difference between a Gillette MACH3 razor and a Gillette Fusion5 razor?
The Gillette MACH3 has 3 blades while the Gillette Fusion5 has 5 blades and a precision trimmer.

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.

Yes, 3 blades are better than 5

I went back from the 5 blades to the Mach 3 Turbo and with the same amount of strokes I can honestly say my shave results in just as smooth of a shave but without any of the razor burn.

Yes, I recommend this product!

Shockingly good

I've been a disposable razor user my entire adult life and am shocked how smooth and comfortable this razor's shave gives. No more cheap plastic razors.

Yes, I recommend this product!

New blue strip on Mach 3 Turbo Razor horrible

20+ years. Never ever used anything else. Since Gillette went to the new blue strip on March 3 Turbo, I am searching for a new blade. Wose mistake ever. Why change something after so many years?

No, I do not recommend this product.
