Face-Care Replacements

There's nothing better for a salesman than selling a thing that requires more parts! It's true for a car and it's true for toiletries and sundries. Stock up now and you'll be ready for when you run out. Because you WILL run out.

Are these replacement razors made by Gillette? The words "compatible with" makes me wonder if they are generic.

That's what it sounds like, to me.

I have a Fusion and of course Mach 3 blades won't work with it. I don't know why they can't make them interchangeable, but I bet it has something to do with money.

These are not real Mach 3 blades, but are cheap generics. The prior Woot had them mislabelled and I ordered them and was very disappointed. Don't get ripped off like I did.

I have an Oral-B electric toothbrush and I love it. My teeth feel minty fresh after using it. However, I've never been as happy as the women in the pictures seem to be. Maybe I'm doing something wrong.

Thanks for the heads up, cheap blades are not worth taking a chance on!

I bought some of the Deep pore and Normal brushes when they were last on woot in December, but haven't had a chance to try them yet. They fit fine though they shed bristles like crazy. No bald spots, but I'm curious if it will continue after the first use (may swap it out to test today). Also many people had problems with orders not being fulfilled or only part showing up; I ended up with a refund since none of the Normal brushes showed up. Not sure if it was due to overselling or what, either way I'm passing on these for now.

Do not buy the Oral B replacement toothbrush heads. I bought them as well as the Gillete compatible replacement blades last month when Woot had them on sale. The Oral B toothbrush heads break off in your mouth when using them to brush your teeth, so they can be a choking hazard if little kids use them. The Gillette razors are ok, they don't shave as close as the real thing, but for ten bucks they are passable.

Aside from the occasional toner refill, has anyone ever actually gotten an OEM-compatible product that was both a lot cheaper and just as good?

To sum it all up; don't buy anything from this plus sale, because it's crap.

I bought the Oral-B brushes on 12/9 but I haven't tried them yet to see if it's defective. Were you guys able to get a refund from Woot? I guess I just missed the 21 day window on returns for defective products. Kinda sucks for me if these things break!

Cheep, cheep junk I ordered some last time they where on here and didn't even last the frist shave. Broke after 4 strokes.

This has been mentioned several times, but I wanted to also chime in.

Last time these blades were offered, they were labeled slightly different, something along the lines of Gillete Mach 3 razor model 123456.

I ordered 3-packs of these thinking that they were actually Gillete razors.. These are a horrible knock-off that have the same level of quality as the cheap $1 plastic razors.

phasers on you Woot - very disappointed customer.

An 8-pack of genuine Oral-B replacement brush heads is $40 at Costco and are German made. These "compatible" brushes are Chinese knock-offs. They might look the same, but don't expect them to be equivalent to the OEM product.

These razors are not even close to the quality of Gillette. I bought these last time and I took one stroke of the razor and threw the entire package away.

The Gillette-like blades remind me strongly of the "King of Shaves" British razor offered herein last year ... in that they suck out loud. I bought 'em, because I'm a cheap SOB, and got about one shave off each blade.

Thanks for all the heads up, guys! Almost bought the oral b brush heads AND the razor blades.

Woot should list if they are knock offs.

Razor blades were shoddy. Don't buy.

I was pleased with the sonic care brushes. They work very well as replacements.

I found something odd about these replacement heads. If you use gel toothpaste, they last 5-7 uses before breaking; but, if you use regular toothpaste, they last very well. Something in the glue holding the parts together seems susceptible to something in get toothpaste. Go figure.

Bought one pack of the Oral-B replacements - Cheap plastic, doesn't fit, comes apart when removing from toothbrush, poor bristle quality .... need I go on?

I purchased the clarisonic replacement heads last sale and while I haven't actually used them yet as it hasn't been time to change the head, I did try one out and found that it worked as expected vs. the ones I had purchased from groupon that didn't spin right.

I purchased Philips-Sonicare PHX-1K Compatible Replacement Brushes-8 Pack and 2 Clarisonic products, on December 12, 2013. I received the Clarisonic products in a timely manner, but I have yet to receive the Philips replacement. I already sent two emails to woot support, but have yet to get this resolved. My recommendation is DO NOT BUY SONICARE replacement heads. I think whoever is the supplier is likely to rip you off. I don't know how to resolve this, so may be I need to dispute the credit card charge.

"Enough blades to last up to two years"

Eight blades, two years. Whaaaaa?

Why do people list their purchases here? Consumerist Pride? e-peen tape measure? Why The Frown??

Ah the classics. The latest Oral-B brush-heads are now Chinese made... but are still better than these "compatible" models. (These women must be using the crack-laced ones.)

Save your face Wooters.... I too bought these thinking they were a value, only to find that they are less than adequate cheap knock-off.

Not happy they have returned.

Note to woot... Find some charity to donate your entire supply of these face ripping, blood letting, less than acceptable and not nearly comparable razors to or feel guilty for ripping us paying customers off!

That tricky "compatable" word is easy to overlook. Thanks to all for making me realize that it means these are knockoffs and no deal.

I got a bunch of these about 2 months back, and they are the worst quality razors I've ever used. They're so bad that they will actually fall off while you're using them. They get dull in just a few days, and I'm very disappointed with them.

Isn't it odd that razor blades have gotten so complicated (expensive) that we now have knock-offs?

That's a good part of why so many people are switching back to double edge or straight razors. That and you can get a better shave and save money.

"Gillette GVNS-500 Venus Compatible Replacement Cartriges - 8 Pack"

DON'T BUY THESE!

I made the mistake of buying them the last time they were on Woot thinking they were name brand Gillette Venus cartridges - they're not, they're crappy knock-offs. Once you take them out of the packaging, the cartridges do look a lot like the real thing and they do fit Venus razor handles...but the blades are terrible! I used two cartridges so far and with both of them the blades shifted causing them to lie flat against one another which prevents them from being able to cut anything. Wish I could get my money back!

Still waiting for a Woot Plus with old-school shaving equipment - safety razors, safety razor blade packs, badger hair shaving brushes, brush stands, shaving bowls/mugs, shaving cream/soap, straight razors, stropping leathers, etc. :-)
