I picked up Gillette’s M3 Power Nitro razor (or shaving system if you may) the other day. You can say that I was a bit skeptical at first but there was a pretty decent deal at UTC, Salmiya that included the razor, an M3 shaving gel and an M3 balm that I couldn’t resist. Initially I’d read some interesting reviews on the product and how it didn’t make a lot of sense to add vibrations to an item that you put to your face that has multiple razor sharp (excuse the pun) blades on it.
Anyhow, my initial impressions are very good. With the vibrations set to off, it works just as well as the Mach 3 Turbo which I owned before this. However, the moment you press the button; shaving becomes noticeably smoother and it actually feels as if the blades are gliding over your skin. I’m not kidding, there is a significant difference and though I can’t comment on whether you get a closer shave (how close are they going to make it now? Any closer and you’ll be peeling off skin!), but I can vouch that it is definitely a smoother one.
