choosing the right razor

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


Safety razors

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.

Which razor is best for me?

Lifestyle is a key consideration. If you require a minimal fuss, time-efficient regular shave then a Gillette cartridge razor is your answer. Both Mach3 or Fusion cartridge razors offer a good clean, no-frills shave. Fusion cartridges yield a closer shave and have a longer 'shave' life which is reflected in the purchase price.

Should you want the closest, most luxurious wet shave, then consider using a safety razor. Shaving with a safety razor is gaining in popularity as many men and women are looking for plastic-free, frugal shaving solutions.

Shaving with a safety razor is regarded as 'traditional' shaving, associated with scented shaving creams and lathered up shaving brushes.


Should I use a safety razor?

Well, many of us are! Safety razors are kind to your skin, the environment and your pocket. Learn why it may be time to start wet shaving with your own safety razor.

What is the cost per shave?

Starting with the most cost-effective shave first:

  1. Safety razor double edge blades: Very, very cheap. A pack of 10 typically costs only a couple of British pounds (two and a half US dollars) and yield easily 30-40 shaves per pack of 10.
  2. Gillette Mach3 cartridge blades: Cost around £1.50 per cartridge (a couple of US dollars), sold in packs of 4 or 8 with each cartridge exposing three nano sharp blades to the skin, lasting up to 5-7 shaves per cartridge.
  3. Gillette Fusion cartridge blades: Cost around £2.50 per cartridge (around 3 US dollars), sold in packs of 4 or 8 with each cartridge exposing five nano sharp blades to the skin, lasting up to 10 shaves per cartridge.
