I have purchased razor blades for about 15 years now. I have tried many brands and many styles, but when the Mach 3 came out, I had to try it. I have been using Gillete products for many years and the Mach 3 Razor for about 10 years. This is a great razor that leaves your face really smooth that does not irritate your skin like others do. My only concern is that the price on this product is not very cheap and has been increasing over the years.
