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.

Can’t get new blades to clip into handle.

I loved this razor until recently. I have bought three new handles and none of them will attach to my blades. I now have 10 blades without a handle that accepts them. Yes I am using the correct handle unless the one you sell with the blades is wrong. It should be a simple thing to make your blades fit the handle you sell with it.

No, I do not recommend this product.

Gillette Mach3 Men's Razor

I thank that it is a good product for the most part. The blade lasts a long time and stays sharp. It is easy to use. The only problem I found with it is that the blade kept coming off while I was shaving my head.

Yes, I recommend this product!

Mach 3 is 4 Me!

I have tried many different razors (from several various brands) over the years and I must say that the Gillette Mach 3 has to be one of my favorites yet! It is lightweight, feels good in the hand, the refills are easy to find(and fairly inexpensive), and most importantly delivers a nice smooth and close shave.

Yes, I recommend this product!

A smooth shave, easy to find and feels great in the hand certainly make Mach3 razors a must! Thanks for sharing your love and being a part of the Gillette family.
