Shaving… chore or pleasure, most men have to do it every day. To do this, men have a choice: disposable or system razors.

System razors are ergonomic razors where you can change the cartridge (also known as “blade”). They offer a much more comfortable and smooth experience than disposable razors.

But the thing is that some people don’t know that system razors exist! Or they know but they shop in auto pilot mode and don’t even question their buying habits. Or they know about Gillette system razors but don’t understand the real value of it.

Can you help change this? Can you wow guys from 18 to 35 and demonstrate to them that Gillette’s system razors are worth the value? That they are better than disposables and show them why?

Millions of men could have their lives improved!


Grab guy’s attention with your catchy iconic creative visual for Gillette MACH3 system razors to show them how superior they are compared with disposable ones!

Your entry should be a visual, an illustration, or a demonstration that is simple, memorable and distinctive. It has to appeal to guys from 18 to 35 years old that currently use 2 or 3 bladed disposable razors and who don’t understand why they should change to Gillette system razors.

Please also think about a tagline to go along with your print.

Here’s a list of proofs that Gillette system razors are better than disposable ones. You might pick one or several to create your visual:

  • MACH3 system razors are better (more comfortable) on 10th shave than a disposable on the 1st  .
  • Blades of MACH3 are thinner and sharper with advanced coatings that give great strength and a more comfortable shave.
  • They have an enhanced gel bar that delivers better lubrication and glide.
  • Open architecture enabling easier cartridge rinsing and cleaning. In contrast, disposables quickly become clogged and are hard to rinse clean.
  • Each of the three blades of MACH3 are mounted on springs and not fixed like they are in the disposables - they move up and down as they automatically adjust to the different levels of shaving pressure and skin variations, helping to increase the comfort of the shave.
  • The combination of these and other superior features results in guys being able to take long comfortable strokes (= movements) with MACH3 versus often needing to take many short strokes with disposables, causing irritation.

We’re looking for ways to visually tell the story of Gillette system razors being superior to disposable razors. Your visual illustration needs to clearly show a comparison. You can use analogies or parallels but you need to compare Gillette MACH3 system razors to 2 or 3 bladed disposable razors and show that the Gillette MACH3 system razor is superior in performance and value.

Along with your ideas, we’d love to know details behind your idea, where your inspiration comes from and why you think it will appeal to men from 18 to 35 yo.



How can you prove to young men that system razors are superior? What comparison would be so catchy and memorable that they would change their habits and shop Gillette system razors next time they purchase razors?

A good idea for this contest| A visual split in two parts with on the left 10 images of the same guy, every morning of the week and 3 mornings of the following week. On Sunday his skin is still soft and he enjoys shaving. On the right, 10 images of the same guy on each morning. On Monday he already has irritation and cuts on the skin. We see on his face that he’s having a bad time shaving. The tagline says: “10 vs. 1. MACH3 system razors are better on the 10th shave than a disposable on the 1st shave.

A bad idea | just showing a system razor and saying: “Better quality”. It does not compare with disposable and does not prove anything.
