Which razor type is most popular?
Gillette system razors — commonly known as Gillette cartridge razors, are the most popular razors purchased globally and are available in two variations:
- 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 double edge safety razors) offer the closest shave 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 accessory websites.
