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.

With the updates we made to our Mach 3 blades you should still be getting the smooth shave we expect. When we updated our Mach 3 blades, we made the first two blades to have the sharpest blades. We also changed the cartridge design to have 3 support bars instead of one. This will give you more control over the blades. If you would like to share more about your experience, please give us a call at (800) 445-5388. We'd like to help you get back to blades you can trust.

Our Mach3 blades have new sharper blades so this is not something we'd expect to hear, and would like to learn more. To help get that shave we expect, wash your face and neck with warm water and mild soap to help remove natural oils and sweat. This also makes hair softer and easier to cut. The best time to shave is right after a hot shower! Apply plenty of shaving gel, foam or cream to soften the beard hair and reduce friction. Also, be sure to shave in the direction of hair growth for a more comfortable shave, or against the direction of growth for an even smoother shave. 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.
