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.

Bring back green strip

The green lubrication strip had a noticeable soapy action which was very lathery and smooth. This blue strip does not have very noticeable lubrication. You really should bring back the green strip.

Yes, I recommend this product!

Used to be great, now just average

Agree with others; bad "upgrades". Lube strip is too wide. Difficult to get into tight areas (around the nose). Blade quality is more hit and miss. Way to get users to switch to a different product?

No, I do not recommend this product.

Gillette Response from Gillette 11/28/18

We always want you to get the best shave, so we're sorry to hear that our Mach3 blades were not giving your that great shave we expect. In April 2017 We updated our Mach3 Turbo blades to have a larger lubrication strip for more contact area. It has a new formulation and releases more lubricants during the shave for increased glide. We'd like to talk with you more about your feedback and share this with our Quality team. When you have a few moments, please give us a call at (800) 445-5388.

Bad blades

The green packs were far superior to these blue packs. These blue packs are on par with Bic disposable blades. Make a better blade that is not made in China.

No, I do not recommend this product.

We always want you to have the best, smooth shave and are sorry this isn't what you experienced with your recent pack. For the best shave be sure to apply plenty of shaving gel, foam or cream to soften the hair and reduce friction. Shave in the direction of hair growth for a more comfortable shave, or against the direction of growth for an even smoother shave. Do not shave in both directions. At the end of every shave, rinse the blade thoroughly and shake off excess water before storing. Do not wipe the blade. If you would like to share more about your experience, please give us a call at (800) 445-5388. We're always here to help.
