Gillette system razors
Commonly known as Gillette cartridge razors, Mach3 and Fusion razors are the most popular razors purchased today.
- Gillette Mach3 — 3 blades in the plastic cartridge with small cartridge release button
- Gillette Fusion — 5 blades in the plastic cartridge with lozenge shaped release button
Also known as traditional 'double edge' razors and associated with shaving brushes, safety razors offer the closest, cleanest shave (excellent for exfoliating the skin) and as an eco-consious (no plastic cartridge) shaving option, safety razors are becoming very popular again. Simply unscrew the razor into three pieces to insert a double edge blade.
Note: Replacement Gillette Mach3 cartridges, Gillette Fusion cartridges and packs of double edge razor blades are widely available from supermarkets, pharmacies and shaving websites.
