CVS M3 Razors

810983.jpgDoes anyone know what these are? I was in CVS recently and saw CVS M3 Razors. My first guess was that they are lower cost triple blade razors which fit the Mach3, but now I'm not so sure. I can't find any information on the packaging, or CVS's website, or anywhere else which says they are compatible.

Then there's this seemingly unfinished site - m3razor.com, which seems to show a link between CVS and King of Shaves. Links go no where, except to CVS's website.

So maybe they're not compatible with Mach3. Anyone know about these razors? At $4.99 for 4 they're dirt cheap. Maybe it's a stealth launch of a new brand.

I bought this blade/cartridge combo after its predecessor was apparently discontinued. I was very disappointed, missed so many spots, takes twice as long to shave doing areas twice. The triple that preceeded it was fantastic. It's like the lower lubricating strip lifts 2 of the 3 blades off my skin and only 1 of the three blades of the M3 is actually shaving.

I discovered these blades about a year ago. They work great on my Headblade & Atra razor handle. Great price and no nicks or cuts!!!

I was totally fooled by the CVS M3 blades as well. Not compatible with anything. Is it worth finding the razor handle?

This product is sold under the at Family Dollar under there own label for 3.09. I find it to be similar to the Mach 3 Turbo, almost as goos at a much better price. Also fits the HeadBlade.

This product appears to be private label. I do know that Headblade.com sells it for 17.49 plus shipping for 8 count. I am glad to see I can get it local and a lot cheaper at CVS and CVS runs sales, buy one get on 50%

I bought a CVS M3 to test it ($4.99 handle and two cartridges). Its design is more similar to the Gillette Mach3 than to the Schick Quattro. The cartridges, however, are not interchangeable. The CVS M3 gave comfortable shave, but not very close especially in the area under the chin. No matter how I use it, it won't make nicks and cuts. I feel that Mach3 would give closer shaves. For lower cost razors, I prefer the Personna Tri-flexx ($2.99 for 4 cartridges at Wal-Mart) that is also compatible with the Gillette Sensor handles. The Tri-flexx cartridges seem to last longer than the Mach3 in my experience. There is no indication on the CVS M3 packaging as where the razor and the cartridges were made.
