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.

New version of blades are no good

These new blades do not shave my face as well as the older ones do. The new blades don't get my whiskers off very well.

No, I do not recommend this product.

Gillette Response from Gillette 03/28/18

We're very sorry to hear you're not receiving the same, great Gillette experience you've come to know and trsut and we'd like to help. We do want to share with you that there are a few factors that can impact the blade's longevity including how tough and thick your hair is, how often you use the razor & on which areas of the body, and how well you rinse the razor. To ensure the longevity of your blades, we suggest storing your razor in its organizer to make sure air can circulate around the lubrastrip/cartridge after use. If you don't have an organizer, please store the razor face up. DO NOT store it face-down on the shower ledge, or with the lubrastrip in direct contact with any surface. Be sure to keep your razor/replacement cartridges away from direct contact with water when not in use. Please give us a call at (800) 445-5388 if you're still not getting the results you've continuted to rely on after trying the above tips. We'd be more than happy to further work with you on getting you back to those days.

New price is better, but quality & value are gone.

New versions of Mach3 are terrible. Dull after 1 use & last 3 at best. Old razors were great, @ $3ea I used 1 razor/week. Have to change new version 2-3/week @ $2 each. Double the cost, less quality.

No, I do not recommend this product.
