How long will the Gillette Mach3 cartridge last?
How long a razor cartridge lasts varies from person to person, as it is dependent on many variables such as beard toughness and thickness, beard preparation, shaving habits, and skin sensitivity. The Gillette Mach3 Cartridges have an Indicator® lubricating strip that will provide you with a visual cue — it fades to white — when shave conditions have been reduced. When this happens, you may want to consider changing the blade on your razor.
Will the Gillette Mach3 cartridge fit any other razors on the market?
The Gillette Mach3 cartridge features a razor blade that fits on any Gillette Mach3 Power, Mach3 Turbo, or Mach3 handle. All Mach cartridges fit any Mach handle.
Is it better to use hot, cold, or warm water to shave?
Warm water is best for hydrating beard hair. Soaking in warm water softens hair and causes it to expand, making it 70% easier to cut.
What is the best way to avoid razor burn?
If the skin is not properly prepared before shaving or if the blade on your razor is dull, you are more likely to end up with razor burn. Make sure to hydrate hair in warm water for up to three minutes and apply plenty of shave gel. Also, consider changing the blade on your razor at the first sign of dullness or discomfort.
Is it okay to let my girlfriend or wife borrow my men’s razor?
For both hygiene and performance, it's not a good idea to share your razor with your partner. Women have a much larger area to shave and you may find that after only a few shaves, your blade has dulled considerably; increasing the likelihood of nicks and cuts. Tell her to try a razor specifically designed for the way a woman shaves, such as Gillette Venus® Embrace®.
Does shaving make your hair grow back thicker?
Scientists at Gillette have conducted extensive testing on the effects shaving has on both male and female hair growth, texture, and color. This testing has proven that shaving does not affect hair growth, color, or texture. Shaving does, however, alter the tip shape of the regrown hair, which may initially change the way hair feels as it grows back. But if hair is left to regrow completely, it will return to its former state.
In what direction should I shave to achieve Gillette’s best shave?
Men’s facial hair tends to grow in different directions. Start by shaving with light, gentle strokes with the grain. Then, if necessary, go against the grain for a close shave.
What is the difference between disposable and refillable razors?
The entire razor is discarded when you are through with a disposable razor. With a refillable razor, only the blade cartridge is replaced. Refillable razors like Gillette Fusion ProGlide and Gillette Fusion incorporate more advanced blade technology and ergonomics vs. most disposables for great control and a close comfortable shave.
What are the differences between single, double, triple and 5-blade razors? Which is best?
Gillette's research has demonstrated that single blade technology, which has been applied since 1901, is demonstrably inferior to twin blade shaving systems such as Sensor Excel®, and even more so to 5-blade systems such as Gillette Fusion ProGlide. But the number of blades alone does not ensure a superior shave. The 5-blade shaving surface of Fusion ProGlide Manual and Fusion ProGlide Power features progressive blade alignment, an advanced blade coating process and a flexible comfort guard, which collectively provide Gillette's most comfortable shave.
How do I avoid nicks and cuts, particularly above my upper lip?
The area above the upper lip is tricky for many men. To help avoid nicks and cuts, always leave it for last. Apply plenty of shave gel and allow this area to soak up as much lather as possible. When shaving, don't apply too much pressure.

I have a very thick beard that has always been a good product test for shaving system and this one passed for being what it claimed to be. With the current economic problems and costs rising faster than salaries we are all looking for a good deal, and at the price this item was offered it was a very good deal.
I still ordered it as I was have few Amazon gift card to finish up. Comes in a nice pack and seems original.. Works good
Well, my razors arrived and they were indeed genuine Gillette razor blades. My shave was smooth and nick free and the blades stayed sharp for several shaves. I included some pics of the product packaging so people can compare the product they are receiving to the ones I got. I have ordered Mach 3 blades from Ebay in the past and received horrible razors packaged in what looked like official packaging but made out of cardboard instead of the plastic that the retail ones come one. Perhaps that is an indication of counterfeits?
I am very pleased with this purchase and will certainly be ordering more. If I end up getting counterfeit product in the future I will definitely update my review.
UPDATE: 05/15/2012- I purchased another order from Amazon and again recieved genuine Gillette razor blades. Whatever the issue was in the past with people getting counterfeit blades seems to have been fixed.
I've shaved for forty years and I HATE SHAVING. But I have to so the Mach 3 is there to make it bearable! Actually, the Mach 3 makes it comfortable.
The first blade I used did not give a clean shave in one stroke. I thought may be this is an exception, so I took the second one (from the same pack)
but got the same below par results. Still not convinced that this is a faulty product I used a third blade with same poor shave.
I have been using Mach3 razor for 10 years and am fairly confident that this is a low quality product.
I should have paid more attention to what the other reviewers were saying... I've been using Mach3 cartridges for many years and I strongly believe these are, indeed, NOT the real deal. Extremely disappointing, considering they're sold directly by Amazon.
Buy at your own risk; mines are going straight to the garbage bin.

I feel they offer the best shave around (I've tried the well known online shave club) but are so expensive for blades that I feel I am almost getting taken advantage of. Read morePublished 19 hours ago by BrianAx
Nice shave! I've been using Mach 3 for about 14 years, ever since Gillette sent me a free shaver in the mail. Still using the original handle and now buy my blades on Amazon.Published 2 days ago by C. Gates
used these razors for years, and they work well. but i switched to a safety razor and a feather disposable straight edge razor. these are just too expensive to use.Published 3 days ago by T-Man
Blades only last several shaves. There's something wrong with the angle of the blades, and they're dull. Brand new blades pull on the hair, and don't cut. Read morePublished 4 days ago by Jim
