3.0 out of 5 stars Too expensive!, March 2, 2005
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Gillette Mach3 Turbo Razor 2 Count (Health and Beauty)
The problem I've encountered is that the Mach 3 Turbo System gets quite expensive. It is suggested by the manufacturer that you change blades when the blue strip is gone. If I follow this guideline, I end up changing blades about ten times a month. At $15 for 8 blades, that comes to almost $20 per month just in blades! For a shave that's smooth but not as close as I would like, that's a bit much.

J. R. Henage says:
For those that are going through blades really fast, you can make a big difference by how you use and store the razor. Most likely you aren't keeping your razor dry. Of course it gets wet while in use, but pat it dry when done and store it in a dry place, not in the shower where it will continue to get wet. Don't ever leave the razor submersed in water, like in a full bath tub or sink, especially just before use. Not only do these make the blue strip disappear prematurely, but too much water exposure can also rust and dull the blades.

I agree started blow drying my razor and got almost 2 months on one blade. I buy my blades at a large annual flea market for $12 for 8 blades.
