I tried other shaves, disposable, 5 blades, electronic, safety razors, ect.... i just keep coming back to the mach 3 turbo. I get a nice close shave with no cuts and the blades last. This Amazon purchase seems to have the official cartridges and not nock offs. Try the turbos with the King Of Shaves no foam shave cream and daily moisturizer. Its a great combo.
