Contact information:

Dear Sir/Madam,
This is to bring into your kind notice that GILLETTE was an excellent brand but may be after Procter & Gamble merger in them, what came into my notice that they have started selling rejected and products of seconds quality to all over India and where the so called PRODUCT LIABILITY LAW exist which governs the liability of manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors, and vendors for injury to a person or property caused by dangerous or defective products. The goal of product liability laws is to help protect consumers from dangerous or defective products, while holding manufacturers, distributors, and retailers responsible for putting into the market place products that they knew or should have known were dangerous or defective and this comes under ACT (The Consumer Protection Act, 1986) and The Sales of Goods Act, 1930 The best cream is going into international markets, I used Gillette for the first time when I was in class 10th in school, started with disposable razor the sensor excel and now MACH3 Nitro(GREEN with battery purchased from middle east) and this is the first time after 14 years that my brand new set of 4cartridges which I took in INDIA came with manufacturing defect from VIVA medical center in Model town 3 main market Delhi 110009, These chemists offer discounts on membership cards by giving points in return which can be redeemed in future for next purchase and maybe this is one of the reason that Gillette is selling their rejected products to these medical stores on cheaper rates. The product I too is GILLETTE MACH 3 TORBO SENSITIVE 4 CARTIDGES razor pack. The make is like first we have rubber grit then 3 blades in line and then the ALOEVERA strip but the problem is that the first line of RUBBER grip is missing half and which can make the razor slip and in return giving a cut on the cheek which can damage someone’s face forever or not a proper shave as there is no grip on the skin before the blades reaches the hair. Kindly rectify this asap as may be this is due to machinery fault or negligence from the quality check officer or strict legal action can be taken on this point.The details of my 4 cartridge pack is as below.

1). Gillette Mach 3 Turbo Sensitive NEW with aloe strip.
2). Packed 01/11
3). [protected] (some number mentioned at the back of the pack)
4).7 [protected] (BAR CODE)
5) Purchase date 06 MARCH 11

    I just bought a pack of 10 Gillette Mach 3 blades and the whole first five are defective. I can shave about three times with one and then it will not cut into my beard at all when they used to last a month. I am in Cleveland, Ohio and bought them at Wal-Mart.

    I have used my Gillette Mach 3 razor since it first came out. I have noticed that the blades are one so bad I can't even shave with a new blade. I have purchased another package thinking maybe I had a bad batch and they are the same. Junk! It is time for me to say goodbye to Gillette as I no longer have faith in your products.

    Very disappointed

    has anyone experienced folliculitis from using gillette venus spa razors? I believe the gel around the razor allows for bacteria growth and infect the hair follicule when shaved.

    I have found in recent your blades are absolutely horrible. From the first shave they feel rough to my face. I have been using your blades for years and have now realized you have let me down, This is the last time I purchase this junk. I also intend to inform Costco, whom I purchase from my decision. Sincerely, D Jones

    I usually get six shaves to one of your proglide blades, however the last package of eight blades I purchased I am only getting one shave. The second shave the blade is alteady pulling at my whiskers. I don't think this is right. I purchased the blades for 40.00 at Shoppers Drugmart. I am a very disgruntd customer. Ulric Bagg

    This was a brand new bottle and I used it maybe 3 or 4 times. But now the dispenser doesn't work and it's still full! It was a 2 pack and the 2nd one works fine.

    The barcode is 047400648883 and the number on the side is 96203393.

    talk about what happened I have been using the mach 3 razor with matching blades since they came out. I opened a new pack and had to throw the whole pack out. they were so dull all I ended up doing was cutting my face. gee haven't done that in 20 years. after all these years I am really disappointed in what was a really fine product the only up side the dr. recently took me off my blood thinners or I would have bled out.

    I have been using Mach 3 for a long time but recently I Bought a new pack but after fitting in the razor the blade slides in a position that it is not in a position to shave. Thinking that the faulty blade may be a freak case I used another new blade but it had the same problem. It does not stay in its position and slides into a position where from one can't shave.

    Gilette - price of mach3 blades
    cold lake

    i believe the price of mach3 blades and newer blades have reached the tipping point. i saw 8 blades for 29.99! i love your blades, since the first time I used a mach3 blade I was amazed! no cuts, and I can use each blade about 2-5 times, longer if necessary. however soon I will be tempted to buy an electric shaver because of the EXPENSIVE blades. your loyal customer, dave burton

    Gillette should give serious concern for what was once The Best Razor money can buy is now a total RIP-OFF
    Your throwing money down the drain when you buy The Gillette Fusion Razor System and Blade Cartridge .
    Than you will be wasting your time in their complaint section and be made as hell cause you have been scammed by Gillette .The once best is now the worst razor money can buy.
    RIPPED-OFF PLAIN AND SIMPLE and your wasting your time writing a review .

    I had bought 2 vector 3 blades from a nearby super market but it never cuts my beard. I was very disappointed and want to know what to do with this blade. I purchased it for Rs.130/- and it is a great loss for me. Could you exchange these blades? and what is the procedure for this ? My mobile no. is 9443477823.
