Gilette Mach 3 Review

The Excel or Sensor is just as good as the Mach 3.
Gillette Excel

The Mach 3 has its good points and its bad points. This razor is packed with features - including three blades, a pivoting head, a nifty handle designed to fit your hand and a blue strip that turns white when you need to change blades.

I didn't think there was any big difference between the performance of a Gillette Mach 3 and a Gillette Sensor Excel. They both do what they're supposed to do: shave the hair off your face. The Mach 3 definitely gives you a close shave but I found it tough to use because of that stupid swiveling head. The idea is that it's supposed to curve with your face, but I found it difficult to handle at first. The one thing I do like is the new cool blue color of the Mach 3 - it makes it look really extreme and outdoorish.

The blades are also more expensive, which is a real pain and they don't last very long either. That little blue strip turns white after about six or seven uses. They still work for maybe twice that long and I've always thought Gillette is trying to trick you into buying more blades sooner.

The Mach 3 basically does what it's supposed to. It shaves your face but so do cheaper razors. If you're thinking about getting a razor, might as well try the Gillette Sensor or Sensor Excel over the Mach 3. They give you more control over the blade, they're cheaper and they do the same job.

Did you buy a tootbrush, razor, gel or some other product that really kicks or really bites? about it.

    I think you should be you wether or not your tomboy or girlie your being you. You have your own style and don't let nobody change that because THEY don't like it it only matters if YOU like it

    This is such an interesting question.. I'll tell you why I think so. I am BOTH the biggest tomboy ever and the girliest girl. I think being either or BOTH is more in YOUR mind than in anything else - it's an internal feeling. Femininity is so personal. I always, always, always have my nails done. BUT they are Gel so they never chip and when I am climbing up mountains or pulling on my wetsuit to things that I find typically damaging to your nails - they stay perfect. So I am doing these rather "tomboyish" activities but my nails are awesome :P I wear a lot of dresses but that doesn't deter me from any activity, the key is shorts underneath. I don't wear make up, not usually but I do love lip gloss. One think I guess I think is important though, feel it. Remind yourself how awesome and unique you are, no matter what you wear - hold your head high and remind yourself you are a QUEEN. Not a princess, lame. BUT a queen! Good Luck, and I love all the practical tips everyone provided. Great job you guys!

    I'll say some stuff that 'girly-girls' do, and the stuff in the brackets would be things added by my best friend. Who is also very annoyingly sarcastic! -.- Paint your toes (get obsessed to them too, all of these girls are!), wear cute little dresses (don't mean huge ballgown style dresses, duh?) , or just fun-cute tops with jeans, maintain your nails (perfectly), take a lot of care about your skin, maintain it, cleanse, moisturize and exfoliate, and start doing make up. (Also, I would suggest to learn how to do a good hair flip, for some reason girly girls are like 'ERMAIGAWD' *flip hair*) Yes, my best friend is annoying but she's girly enough to be able to have a say in here. Here's a bit of advice from me, don't try to change your style because of what people might think or say, do it if you want to and if you feel comfortable with it. You are more than perfect the way you are, whether a tomboy or a girly-girl and it doesn't really matter what you are.

    Personally I think you should just find things you like and wear them without worrying about what style it fits in to. You should express yourself, not conform to other people's views/standards. :)
