FAQ


FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


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. When you are no longer getting an optimal shave, the Lubrastrip fades to white, indicating that it might be time to change the blade.

Best razor available

Excellent product. I shave my head and my face. Cartridges last twice as long as others I've tried. Smooth shave, I don't have to go over areas two or three times!!!
