This product proclaims that all it takes is three strokes for a clean shave and due to that, you won’t receive any skin irritation. This product is well equipped with soft and protective Microfins that gently smooth down the skin so that you can shave evenly and effortlessly. Did we mention this razor’s dynamic material? This disposable razor contains blades that are coated in patented DLC (Diamond Like Coating) so that you can receive strong, sharp blades that cut close.
The Gillette Mach3 razor even comes with a “Lubrastrip” that provides a smooth glide. Not to mention the razor itself, cleans up well with its Open Architecture System that makes the blades easy to rinse. You can purchase this razor in a 3 count or a 6 count pack (for this review, we selected the 6 count pack).

The ergonomically-designed elastomer handle provides you with an extremely comfortable hold, meaning you can shave away the hair with ease (and with no hand pain!).

We’ll also note some downsides to the product such as it only having a single blade and not coming with a lubricating strip for extra protection. Some customers have also said that using just this razors will not get rid of all of the hairs, so you may want to use a stronger razor (i.e. electrical) first before using this razor.

We should note that some customers have expressed minor concern about how short-lived the razors are, but do keep in mind they’re called disposable for a reason. If you can handle the shorter lifespan, these reliable razors are quite affordable!

Best Disposable Razor – Buyer’s Guide
If you’re ready to take the dive and try a new set of disposable razors, you’ll need to know what to look for. Every razor is not the same, and disposable razors have their own, unique traits that you should be aware of before you make your purchase.
Number of Blades
The days of the single bladed razor are, for the most part, over. Now, most companies are competing to see how many blades they can stick on one razor without creating an intense gravitational pull. While no scientific studies exist, consumer review testing has determined that more blades does equate to a closer shave.
Number of Disposables Per Pack
Look for value when buying your disposable razors. Determine how many razors you get per pack, and determine how much each disposable razor, or disposable razor head costs individually. Some razor systems may offer you 5 blades, but will also charge you extra money, when you could easily utilize a 3 or 4 bladed system for the same purposes.
Unlike non-disposable razors, disposable razors now come with lubricating strips standard. The general reason is to eliminate the need for shaving cream, but it’s also to help with skin irritation. Most of these razors fail to mention what is actually in these strips. Many of them have chemicals that might actually cause irritation to your skin. Meanwhile, some offer certain chemicals and additives, such as vitamin E and aloe, that can help your skin. Be sure to do some research on the lubricant if you aren’t 100% sure, or if you know you have extra-sensitive skin.
Few disposables come with pivoting heads, but most come with some form of curve-attentive design. Look for a disposable razor that has some apparatus that will adjust to your body’s curves in some manner. Whether it’s spring-loaded blades or a pivoting head, make sure you’re purchasing a bladed system that includes a method for adjusting to your body.
