The original Mach3 continues its legacy of close shaves with this 8-ct. pack of replacement cartridges.

Product FAQs

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. 

 

Shaving FAQs

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.

This is a quality product as advertised that was offered at a decent price; not counterfeit or reconditioned as some of the reviews would like you to believe. Unfortunately anyone can make a review for a product or vender at this site so criticisms can come from anywhere, including competitors.

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.

These are the best blades and there are no equals. The size of the head is small enough to get into tight places but large enough to shave quickly and comfortably. I have a THICK beard and I hate shaving. But when I do, rest assured it will be with a Mach 3. I've tried others and I always come back. I do like the Gillette Fusion but the head is too large for around my nose and other tight areas. The Mach 3 is a perfect balance of all.
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.

I read a few other reviews about these blades being fake and didn't believe it since i've never had such an experience ever. The blades looked fine but within 3-4 days of opening them, the blades started rusting. Stainless Steel blades cannot rust. The lubricating strip dissolves in no time, the blades get clogged. I have used Mach 3 blades for over 8 years and can clearly tell that these are not original blades.
STAY AWAY FROM THESE. Pay the extra dollar and buy them from a reputed store.

The razor blades do not seem to be original Mach3 blades but cheap knockoffs or may be faulty ones.
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 have no problem with them. Have been using these blades for about 5 years, purchases at sam's and the px. The blades from amazon give a good shave, there's no difference except for a much lower price.

Can't beat Amazon for the price, real genuine products delivered fast. The price I paid for the quantity of Mach 3 blades is better than wholesale club prices too!!

This is a great product, no doubt. Almost everyone agrees these are great products. The beef is always with the price. Don't you love paying $3-$4 per cartridge?

It's well established that drying the blades will HUGELY extend the life of the cartridge. Some users reports the blade can last 10x longer. There's several ways to do that, but here's my trick, which I believe is the easiest as well as the cheapest:

► After shaving, blow air to remove excess water from the blades (you probably already do that.) Then--gently wipe a small alcohol "prep pad" on the blades. These are those little pads used to swab an area of skin (for example if you have to give yourself insulin injections.) Here's a few options, but you can pick them up very cheap at any store:
+ Alcohol Prep Pads
+ Kendall/Covidien Alcohol Prep Pads - #6818 - 1/Box of 200
+ Special Sale - 5 Boxes of 200 - WEBCOL Alcohol Prep Pads KND6818 KENDALL HEAL... MP-KND6818 Box

The trick is this: the alcohol quickly dries out any moisture. These alcohol pads cost about 2 cents apiece. Let's see, 2 cents per swab, $4 for cartridge ... Even I can do the math.

√ Let me know how it works for you.
