Frequently Asked Questions
Gillette MACH3 razors have better blades with sharper edges* for a more comfortable shave than Gillette 2-blade disposables. These blades are strengthened with an atomic carbon coating to help keep them sharper for longer. Gillette MACH3 razors have a skin guard with 10 flexible fins made from soft elastomer. They gently stretch the skin to create a smooth, even surface before the blades.
The Gillette MACH3 has 3 blades while the Gillette Fusion5 has 5 blades and a precision trimmer.
Microfins precede the blades and smooth out the skin before the first blade cuts the first hair. So you get a close, comfortable shave.
A Lubrastrip is a thin strip that sits at the top of the razor, releasing lubricants while you shave, to produce a great glide. When you are no longer getting an optimal shave, the Lubrastrip fades to white, indicating that it might be time to change the blade.
