Universal shaving hero.

AdvantagesClose shave, really close shave, the closest shave

DisadvantagesCan be expensive

"I first bought this razor several years ago when i was still pretending to shave, as you do. I only bought it because of my mates and the adverts, when you're a fifteen year old guy you don't tend to know much about anything let alone what the best razor is. **THE RAZOR** Anyway now that my face has finally started sprouting hairs, razors are alot more helpful when that happens, I've realised quite how good it is. The basic design is a sleek ..." Read review

The Flash gordon of the razor world

AdvantagesGood close shave, strong and durable, safe and easy

Disadvantagespricey replacement blades and a drunken stand

"Oddly, I received a Gillete mach 3 Turbo razor on Christmas day as some kind of weird stocking filler. Not that I’m complaining as the cheap disposable razors I had being previously using left me looking like a guillotine victim. The Mach 3 Turbo comes with a plastic stand that is to be fair a little flimsy and unsteady on its feet. The front of the stand holds a plastic clip that is used to mount the razor, whilst the rear of the stand holds ..." Read review

RIPPED APART

AdvantagesLooks a lot more flash than the Mach 3.

DisadvantagesTriple blade mechanism causes injury to face.

"...a new razor. The Gillette Mach 3 Turbo and I thought my dreams had come true. The Gillette Mach 3 Turbo is supposed to be the best razor around at the moment. It’s triple blade head supposedly gives you a closer shave than ever before. What it actually did in my case was give me such a close shave that it took not only all the hair off, but half the face as well. The promises are there in the advert. Close shave and no irritation, even ..." Read review

The Best A Man Can Get !!

AdvantagesClean, Smooth, Comftable

DisadvantagesPrice On Blades

"...A few years later standard Gillette Mach 3 was released - the first 3 triple bladed model and then a little while after that the Mach 3 Turbo followed with the only difference being that the Mach 3 Turbo blades have a small 'moisturising' strip on the top edge. For quite a while I resisted buying one for two reasons - firstly the cost (they were quite pricey when they first came out) and secondly I thought that all I would gain would be a extra ..."

Closer than any other blade-but no money back!

AdvantagesA super close shave, ergonomic design, very little in the way of cuts etc even with my sensitive skin

Disadvantagestakes a little "tooing and froing" to get the best shave, expensive, results depend an awful lot on the shaving gel used.

"I first stated using Gillette razors back in 1979 when the first Gillette GII came out and I was 17 to remove the tiny little fragments of hair I had around my face which was impersonasting a beard. The shave was an experience which resulted in no cuts but a peculiar numb sensation which lasted all day. Since then,with my stubble getting denser and denser, I have tried a variey of razors such as Wilkinson (Okish), an Hitachi Electric Razor (good ..." Read review

This razor will MACH you very happy if GILETTE it

AdvantagesSmooth, quick shave

DisadvantagesExpensive razor heads

"...just so happened that recently, Gillette were giving away their new Mach 3 Turbo razor free, so one fell through the letterbox one morning and thus became my new shaving tool. LOOKS While items such as razors leave little room for fundamental design innovation, every product today has some sort of flashy design, from toothbrushes to shampoo bottles. The Mach 3 Turbo is no different, with a rubber grip handle and wide razor head. The razor heads ..." Read review

Cutting edge stuff !!

AdvantagesClose shave - easy to grip - each blade lasts a few weeks

Disadvantagesexpensive to buy replacement blades

"Like every man who doesn't want to look like Jesus I shave on a reguylar basis normally every 2 days and have done ever since a naive youngster entered the bathroom took a Bic razor in hand and proceeded to recreate Nightmare on Elm Street. To say my first experience of shaving was painful is an understatement and over the years I have avoided Bic but also tried electric shavers and other razors that have protective bars - safety systems etc in an ..."

Gillette Mach 3 a razor that gives an average shave

AdvantagesCost of new blades is less than the higher spec fusion model

DisadvantagesLeaves a rough finish after only a few shaves and doesn't last very long

"I’ve been using a Gillette Mach 3 razor for what seems an eternity and at first it seemed quite effective at reducing my rugged bristles into skin as soft as a babies bum. I really can’t believe my stubble is actually getting tougher almost on a daily basis because when I first bought refills for it they could last almost a month, now I am lucky if they last a week and a half. I have bought various Mach 3 cartridge packs – standard and turbo in both ..." Read review

Very Smooth

AdvantagesClose and smooth shave, reliable

DisadvantagesOver priced cartridges

"I used to always use an electric razor but then i found it easier and more convenient to shave in the shower. My friend had been using the Mach 3 Turbo for a while and he was very pleased with it and recommended it to me. Superdrug were doing a special offer: the razor plus a small bottle of shaving gel and two extra cartridges all for £4.99. Not bad, so i bought one and have been using it ever since. The razor is very easy to use and it just ..." Read review

Im a girl and I use a mach 3 but im proud of it

Advantagessmooth shave

Disadvantagesnot that different to the normal mach 3

"Ok so I'm gonna give a slant to this whole mach 3 thing. Im a girl. I have never used something which gives me such a good shave, im so smooth and for longer. I started off using it because my dad gave me his old one with a blade because I couldn't be bothered to bring my gillete venus home with me from uni on weekends. So the first few times I used it I noticed something different, it was so much kinder on my skin, the stubble grew back less ..." Read review

A close shave

Advantagesnice shave

Disadvantagesexpencive blades

"I have recently purchased a new razor the “Gillette Mach 3 Turbo” which cost me £6.99 in safe ways and came with 4 blades. This did not seem such a bad buy at first until I saw the price of the refill blades. They retail at around £11.99 at safe way, quite a lot for 8 cartridges. I thought I would buy the razor first to try, after all I’d rather waste £6.99 than that and £11.99 and I thought they would be worth a try. The razor itself measures ..." Read review

why do you need turbo when you are at mach 3

Advantagessmooth, good finish

Disadvantagesexpensive

"When I heard that something was Mach 3 and it was turbo I thought that I must get it and in the advert it was so shiny and i was sucked right in. I bought myself one instead of the old electric shaver I had and i was quite impressed with the results. The razor does give me a very close cut and a nice smooth finish with its twin pads that are supposed to give you a good finish up and down. I was impressed with this initially but then began to think ..." Read review

Womes should try this razor!

AdvantagesLong lasting razor with a smooth close shave even for course hair!

DisadvantagesPrice

"My husband purchased the Gillette Mach 3 razor for himself about 6 months ago. I was using another brand that I firmly believed was the best razor ever! One day I ran out and my husband had me try his Gillette Mach 3. I never went back! This razor gives a smooth shave even with course hair. I shave every day and the blade keeps giving a close shave even after 7 days of daily use. The blades are easy to load and Gillette provides easy storage of used ..." Read review

A smooth shave

AdvantagesClose shave

DisadvantagesNot much improvement on original Mach 3

"I have used a Gillete Mach 3 razor for some time now and have always found it to be a very comfortable shave, so I was intriuged when I saw the Mach 3 Turbo advetised. There is no up or down!! I have very sensitive skin and as such need to choose a razor carefully. I have found that when I have shaved against the grain (to get a closer shave), my skin has cut badly and often needs 2 or 3 days to get it back to a state where I can shave again. ..." Read review
