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.

    You need to clear things up with your best friend, and express to her what you feel because friendship requires open communication for it to last. Likewise, you should also take into consideration that not because she`s your best friend and she knows that you like this guy, she`s not allowed to be friends and eventually have a romantic relationship with this guy. Love does not follow a first come first serve basis, that`s reality.  Now, if you really love or like that person then you should be happy for him. True love means putting someone else`s happiness before your own EVEN IF you`re not part of that happiness. There`s a reason for everything, someday this will all make sense. :)
