Gillette Mach 3 Turbo Review

DSC06363

Imagine this, your alarm didn't go off this morning because the battery has died and you need to attend a super important meeting. You rush to the toilet and start washing yourself at light speed, however there's one step which you can't skip. The Morning Shave.

It's no doubt that this crucial step is what draws the line between the disheveled hobo look and the clean dapper modern man.

Well case in point, Gillette has recently launched their latest new Mach-3 razors that comes with sharper blades and improved lubrication strip, which promises to help Malaysian men achieve a great shave, and great skin.

DSC06364

I was recently given a Gillette Mach 3 shaving kit to try out, which consists of the Mach 3 Turbo and a shaving cream

The Mach 3 Turbo
Retails at RM18.50 at all leading retailers.

DSC06368
It's triple-bladed razor with advance blade coating technology ensures a very clean shave and at the same time requires less cutting force. Not to mention it's enhanced gel bar that is 30% wider, and contains more "cushioning lubricants" to provide better lubrication and glide.

DSC06366
It's handle is ergonomically designed with elastomer gripped points to provide a secure grip which handles great in wet bathroom conditions (as well as those hangover mornings)

DSC06365
The head of the catridge is mounted on spring fingers. Which move up and down as they automatically adjust to the different levels of shaving pressure and skin variations, helping to increase comfort during shave

DSC06386
Prepping up for the shave, always use a generous amount of shaving cream

DSC06396
Start with one side of your face so that you can pretend you have a split personality.

DSC06400
Almost done.

DSC06408
The end result, a clean shave without irritation! Which could go south really easily if I chose to use a cheap disposable razor. As you can see there is no redness or any irritation. Just dapper ol' me.

DSC06370
So what did I think of the Mach 3 Turbo? It's a great razor and albeit a little bit pricier than regular disposables. They gave me a really clean and easy shave.  Similarly with my previous experiences with Gillette razors, they usually last a great deal of time. This razor, especially because it is better than an ordinary disposable, even on the 10th shave

Gillette's new Mach 3 series Launch @ PJ Trade Centre

DSC06283
17th August 2016, Gillete launches it's latest Mach 3 series (which consists of three different variation : The Mach 3 Classic, Mach 3 Turbo and Mach 3 Sensitive) and to kick it off, they organized a talk-show style event that's centered around men's grooming regime and their new Mach 3 range.

Do you often have irritated and red skin after your daily shave? This talk-show is catered towards preventing such occurrences and is greatly beneficial for shaving-challenged individuals.

DSC06287

The talk show was hosted by former Miss Malaysia and TV Host Nadia Heng and also featured local actor/celebrity Fahrin Ahmad as the guest of the 'talk show' 

DSC06293
Fahrin Ahmad shares his insight on how important his grooming regime is as well as horror tales of using cheap disposable razors and it's downsides. He mentioned how his director once commented on how disheveled he looked when he used cheap disposable razors that day, which is why with Gillette's Mach 3, he'll always be able to look his best throughout his busy daily schedule.

DSC06295
To show the effectiveness of Gillete's Mach 3 Turbo, Fahrin Ahmad and along with two other audiences members did a live demonstration. By shaving their facial hairs in front of all the audience.

After the shaving demonstration, Nadia and Fahrin played a game called the "Whisper Challenge". Which is kind of like charades except one person will be wearing ear plugs and headphones with blaring music and will be required to guess the word the other party is saying by way of lip reading. Which led to some pretty funny answers.

So what makes Gillete's Mach 3 Turbo stand out from the rest? 

1) Sharper Blades
With a sharper blade, The Mach 3 Turbo requires less cutting force with each shave

2) Advanced blade coating technology
Thin Uniform Telomer Technology (TUT-technology) that provides great strength to the fine blades and reduces the cutting force

3) Enhanced gel bar
With a 30% wider gel bar, The Mach 3 Turbo is able to achieve better skin contact, providing better performance of lubrication and glide

About the Mach 3 Family
The new Mach 3 series comes in 3 variations, the Classic, Sensitive and Turbo
  • When cutting a hair using the three-bladed razor, the razor uses the flexibility of the hair in the follicle and a process called "hysteresis" to provide a closer,longer lasting shave.
  • Each blade is independently mounted on spring fingers. Which moves up and down as they automatically adjusts to the different level of shaving pressure and skin variations, helping increase comfortness of shaving.
  •  It's skin guard is comprised of soft,flexible microfins that gently stretches the skin to present a smoother surface to the blades, which improves skin comfort and reduces irritation
  • The Mach 3 handle connects at the front of the catridge to redirect 50% of the force from the hand away from the blade to increase skin comfort and to ensure the catridge follows the contours of a man's face 
  • The front head pivots, which creates an "open architecture" that makes it easier to clean the catridge head
  • They come with an ergonomic handle with elastomer grip points to provide a secure grip during every shave
  • Comes with a simple single docking system that easily connects the handle to the pivoting razor catridge for optimal skin shaving positioning

Remember guys, shaving is an important ritual of men everywhere and one shouldn't cheap out on their regime by using cheap disposable razors unless you want to risk having irritated skin for the entire day. Gillette's Mach 3 series is definitely something worth investing in if you're still keeping that complimentary hotel shaver.

Gillette's Mach 3 series is available at all leading retailers from the time of writing. Prices are as follows : Mach 3 Classic - RM15.90
Mach 3 Sensitive - RM17.90
Mach 3 Turbo - RM18.50

BELVEDERE Electrify The Night @ FUZE Club KL

Belvedere Vodka captures the very source of light – Electricity – and electrifies the night! The iconic brand recently held one of their biggest parties of the year at Fuze Club Kuala Lumpur. Was pretty stoked that I was invited to the exclusive party which featured one of the most hyped DJ duos alongside the world's first luxury vodka, Belvedere Vodka

An 8-foot installation of the Belvedere bottle greeted guests at the entrance of Fuze while lights and lasers illuminated the club both inside and out, amplifying the experience in signature Belvedere style. The venue was also decked with several customized Belvedere displays, allowing everyone to capture their experience during the party. 

The Belvedere girls

One of Malaysia’s hottest DJ, DJ Jhin, kicked off the night, rocking the decks with his set of popular dance music from different genres while guests were also treated to special dance performances.

They call this the Belvebear. Where's the Belveduck? I'd pay top dollars for that. 

Sparklers do make everything glitzier doesn't it?



The special event came to an all-time high when Australian DJ duo Rave Radio made their electrifying appearance, getting the club pumped with their eclectic mix of bass-thumping dance music. With their unique tracks and energetic stage presence, Rave Radio showed just why they have won support from the likes of Hardwell, Martin Garrix and Kaskade in the music industry.


Rave Radio’s live performance together with Belvedere Vodka truly set an all-new standard for originality and intensity when it comes to the club experience. The night also kick-starts a series of “Electrify The Night” celebrations across the nation, set to elevate the party experience through a modern, edgy and unexpected way. Club-goers alike can look forward to similar parties encapsulating Belvedere Vodka’s vibrant personality happening throughout the year.  


Haven't partied so hard in a while, am definitely looking forward to more in the future :)

Tiger White : Expected The Unexpected #3 A Cinematic Experience @ TGV 1 Utama

Well it's been awhile since I last written a new post, but after a long hiatus and contemplation (and a ton of picking up other interests) I've decided to start this blog back up. So what better way to start it up than with an awesome event that I was invited to last weekend :

Tiger White brand ambassadors at the sensational cinematic experience event at TGV Indulge, One Utama

Expect the Unexpected with TIGER WHITE #3

On the 28th of May, Tiger White graciously extended an invite to me to experience an "unexpected" evening of cinematic proportion. How unexpected you say?

Tiger White has been running a campaign where 10 lucky winners will be chosen each round (4 in total and this way the 3rd one) where they will get a unique experience with a twist.

So for this round, the winners were told that they will be getting a movie treat (X-Men Apocalypse) but of course there's a twist to it.... 

DSC05837

Tiger White went up and beyond the call of duty and engaged a personal chauffeur for each and every winner that brought them to and fro the event from their residency. I was pretty stoked as I was being driven around in an Audi S4

DSC05840
I must admit, getting picked up instead of having to drive all the way to 1U is a privilege much less in a sporty Audi

DSC05838
All smiles on the way to the movies!

DSC05843
Upon reaching the destination we were ushered into TGV's Indulge lounge where they've turned the place into a fancy restaurant setting with tables and chairs where we were given light refreshments.

Guests being treated to foot massage (2)
A few dozen masseuse were brought in to treat all contest winners with complimentary back and foot rubs  

After which we were served with a three course dinner before heading into the cinema.

Of course we weren't just going to watch the movie in any standard hall, no way, Tiger White had pulled all the stops and it wasn't holding back any punches. 

2016-05-28 20.31.43
We were going to watch the movie in TGV's Indulge hall, where we had our own reclining chair and a personal comforter. Which honestly was my first time being in that hall so excuse my excitement.

So that pretty much sums up the fun experience I had last weekend, and if you're even remotely envious of this Tiger White has one final contest to close it's campaign where you and a friend could win a 2 days 1 night camping experience that will be happening next weekend on the 11th of June. Contest mechanics are pretty easy, simply head on over to www.tigerwhite.com.my and answer two simple questions to be in the running.
