Mach3® Start Blade Refills


What's the difference between a Gillette two-blade disposable and a Gillette MACH3 razor?
Unlike the Gillette two-blade disposable, Gillette MACH3 has three DuraComfort blades that give a closer shave, without all the redness*. The responsive blade suspension keeps the blades in close contact with your skin, and the pressure-adjusting pivot adapts to contours for an easier*, more comfortable shave.

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 shaving rash?
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 shaving rash Make sure to hydrate hair in warm water for up to three minutes and apply plenty of shave gel. Also, you may want to consider changing the blade on your razor at the first sign of dullness or discomfort.

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 colour. This testing has proven that shaving does not affect hair growth, texture or colour. 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 the best shave?
Men's facial hair tends to grow in different directions resulting in different beard shapes. Start by shaving with light, gentle strokes with the grain. Then, if necessary, go against the grain for an even closer shave.
