Wil Dasovich and Japeth Aguilar Kicks-off Gillette Mach3 10 vs. 1 Battle

leave a comment »

I was invited to the official launch of the 10 vs. 1 Battles of the most popular razor blades since time-a-memorial – meaning since I started shaving. It used to be we’d buy Gillette blades, pesky little stuff that sometimes results in cuts, and insert that in heavy-metal shavers. Then, Gillette came out with the disposable and life never became the same.

Wil Dasovich is a funny guy on YouTube, using the moniker “Tsong and Tsonggo”, which started on November 2014. Today, his YouTube channel boasts more than 230,000 subscribers and 30 million views. Wow! Talk about just two years! And his sister’s cute, too (adorable Haley Dasovich). Aww! How can you resist a cutie?

Anyway… also appearing last November 6th at the 10 vs. 1 Battle was Filipino professional basketball player of Barangay Ginebra San Miguel Japeth Aguilar, all 6-foot, 9-inches tall – Yikes! Together, Wil Dasovich and Japeth Aguilar kicked off the Gillette Mach3 launch of the 10 vs. 1 Battle where the point being driven was: it takes 10 good shaves before 1 Gillette Mach3 gives out.

Unboxing the Gillette Mach3

I shave every other day because I have a tendency of getting razor burn if I did it every day. It was funny that during the event, some of the people I talked to didn’t really know how to shave properly. Ever heard the phrase “shaving against the grain?” Also known as “shaving against the direction of hair growth.” Yep! Most people do not know that doing so is the fastest way to get razor burn, damaged hair follicles and ingrown hairs. So, now you know!

There was a video that was shown to everyone in the activity area where Wil Dasovich was shaving – always downwards; meaning, shaving with the grain, so to speak. Then, I heard someone beside me say in Filipino, “Why doesn’t he shave upwards like I do? Or like how they do it in the barber shop?” Buzz! Do that every day and the chance of your chin and neck swelling like a ripe tomato will come to bear fruit! Get it? Bear fruit?

I also “try” to shave without water and shaving cream. For many of the non-Gillette brands, I have to use either. With the double-bladed Gillettes, I sometimes don’t, but only sometimes. With Gillette Mach3, I tried shaving without water or shaving cream. The first time I did so – WOW! It was a smooth ride, or a smooth feeling. I did not experience any single hair being pulled out (“Ouch!”), which usually happens when you use one blade or most of the generic two-bladed disposable shavers. But the Gillette Mach3? None whatsoever. The best test of a good shaver is a dry shave, and you should get the feel of its smoothness, not a rough sensation.

I was given a kit with the shaver plus three more detachable blades which, by doing the math, would provide me a great shave for the next three months or exactly 80 days. With other disposable shavers, I already feel the roughness by the third or fourth shave. The Gillette Mach3 kit given to me also came with a shaving cream but I don’t even know if I’m ever going to use that, what with the smooth shaving feeling I get with the Mach3 on a dry shave.

This is not a paid endorsement. Fine, considering I was given the Gillette Mach3 set for free, I think of it like an “unboxing” activity when tech bloggers are given gadgets to test. I can’t imagine giving back my Gillette Mach3 kit after I use it. Super LOL! So, trust me when I say you’ll save more buying this dang Gillette Mach3 kit than getting that rough feeling with your cheap, disposable, double-bladed shaver, and buying too much, too often. Egad! Don’t even think of getting a single-blade; and please tell your barber to stop shaving “against the grain,” now that you know (or else, “I told you so!”)

So Wil Dasovich and Japeth Aguilar does it right, shows it right, and makes it right by partnering with Gillette Mach3. So far, nothing does a better, smoother shave than it. It being the Gillette Mach3.

Oh, and Joyce Pring was the host of the Gillette Mach3 10 vs. 1 Battle at Eastwood City Mall that November 6th afternoon. I also just had to mention her. Another LOL!

‘Nuff said.
