Gillette Mach 3 Turbo Review


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.


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.

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.

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)

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

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

The first stroke

Protip : Use both hands for better accuracy to ensure you don't shave your lips

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

Almost done.

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.

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
