1.0 out of 5 stars Fake Blades...BEWARE!!, August 27, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Gillette Mach3 Turbo Cartridges, 8 Count (Health and Beauty)
I should have read recent reviews regarding this fake blades before ordering it online.

Blades were rough and hurts the skin. I have been using Gillete for yrs
(purchased from store) and never had such bad experience. Even blades are
not clean as original ones and very close look can find other minor differences while comparing it to original.

I checked various things as suggested in another review and one of those clearly proved its fake. I tried to abuse blue plastic strip just under the blades, they were many micro-aligned plastic lines, and this lines tried to align back, but they left marks on abused spots.

I have recently purchased Mach 3 blades from Sam's Club, and I came to the same conclusion as some of these Amazon.com reviews regarding the lack of genuine "feel" with the Mach 3 Turbo blades. I felt that my Sam's Club blades were also inferior, irritating my skin and ripping out hairs, and the blades were more loosely constructed. I wonder about two ideas: (1) is Gillette's manufacturing processes going downhill all across the company's product line, and (2) is Gillette attempting to tank the quality of their Mach 3 line so that people will move to their ridiculously priced Fusion line (which I personally refuse to use)?

I stopped using "refill-able" shaving systems years ago. The price came out to be like $2-2.50 per blade. And at least for me they only lasted 2-3 shaves. Even if you buy some of the best disposable blades they're still like half the price of Gillette and for my money they work much better too. I've had a set of 8 Shick disposable razors that I've had for like 4-5 months now and each razor lasts about 3 weeks or more (5-7 shaves). If you have no problem with Gillette, continue to use what you're comfortable with, but any company that would willingly try to destroy the reputation of their own old product so you'll buy a new one isn't one I'll be buying from.

Something I was taught last year was to dip the razor blade in baby oil to prevent the thin metal on the blades from rusting. I have been able to use the same blade for months doing this.

No it isn't false, and since it is working it is obviously not a myth. Yes if you have rust on your blades then by all means change them. I stated that the oil was to prevent rusting and it does.

Your reasoning about P&G is flawed. What industry that makes most of their money off of repeat customers would want to increase the longevity of their product? Besides, the oil has to be applied after every use therefore P&G couldn't do anything at the factory anyhow (oh, and they do sell the oil already, they just don't tell you to put it on the blades, just your skin). Try it before you discount it.
