Mach 3 Razor: Clean Shaving, While Travelling.

One of the first things into my travel kit to go abroad is my razor, shaving foam, balm and aftershave. If there would be anything I could not live without it would have to be my MACH 3  Blade Razor, Why? because think about it everyone almost uses’s a Razor. If I had an estimate I’d say about at least 90% of  British guys & probably the same for Americans use some form of razor. My sister bought me my Mach 3 razor in February 2004 as a birthday gift. It’s been 13 years since she bought it for me and I’d have to say that the best birthday present she ever bought me and the only one that I can remember of lol.

 

Why People should by The Mach 3 Razor

I think everyone should go out right now if they don’t already have one and buy a Mach 3 Razor. Why ? well because everyone that goes to Tesco, Poundworld and they buy the 99p pack of 10throwaway razors are buying on price but getting razors so cheap they work but with bad side effects such as dry itchy skin, poor blade to skin surface and sometimes breakouts onto the face or where ever you shave at. Don’t be a cheapskate and buy a Gillette Mach3 Start Men’s Razor Blades,  comes with 8 Refills and enjoy the smooth shave your ugly mug deserves.

Why I love my Mach 3 Razor

There are a lot of great features on this particular razor, one being that it is titanium/metal meaning that it virtually can last forever if you took care of it like I do mine. The best feature that I love is the 3 stroke blade instead of the one stroke blade on the disposable razors this razor has 3, so that when you shave you only have to shave once because of the 3 blades instead of shaving constantly shaving over and over again with the regular disposable razors. My razor is also red and black it looks nice it’s not that heavy it’s the perfect razor it’s the best quality razor on the market today.

What Would I Change About It?

There is really nothing that I would change about it, it’s very reliable probably the most reliable of all razors. What I tend to do is buy the replacement blades when they’re on offer, so if the 10 pack is at a discount, I’ll stock up. Normally I buy 1 pack with 3 in the pack and they usually last me for about a couple of months for shaving my face. I don’t bother shaving elsewhere, but depending on how often you use it & where (like on your leg’s, face, arms etc) will shorten the life of the blades.  Making it last forever is impossible the blades eventually wear down after a few weeks. but I promise you,  you would save a lot of money in the long run if you bought this razor.

People this razor, in my opinion, is the best, it’s lasted me so far 3 years it’s priceless to me if I would be on an Island in the middle of the Ocean trust me I would bring my MACH 3 Razor. Think about it if you get rescued at least you would be clean shaven not all hairy and look like a cave man. That’s is why I really could not live without my razor it’s priceless it’s the best you can buy so I encourage everyone who doesn’t have one to go buy one.

When I fly to America, I order these online from Amazon, get them delivered to the hotel and they’ll last me the whole vacation and I can bring back what I haven’t used. I often find a coupon, so they work out at even better value. Just a tip there, if you’re flying across the pond.
