The pink tax is not a literal tax on pink things, the reality may be worse. Instead, products aimed at women often sell for as much as double the price of their male counterparts (even when nothing has changed except for a little pink dye). Don’t believe us? A Times investigation found that women pay on average 37% more for identical products.
From razors to deodorant and even children’s toys! Some of the big brands (such as certain razor companies) will claim that it’s because razors for women are different, more complicated, and more expensive to manufacture. That may seem believable at first; after all, a pair of legs has much more surface area than a face, so surely they must have to make the blades more robust, right?
Nope, that’s wrong. The technology used in razors for men and for women are the exact same. In both cases, the goal is to make a set of blades that are as sharp and with the longest lifespan possible. The only difference is the colour of dye put into the plastics in the handle. We decided to put this to the test.
We’ve got a great razor and a club with 1,000s of men singing our praises; if they’re happy surely women would be too? We got our razors into the hands of all of our female friends and then waited to see what they said. Sure enough, they loved it! And of course, they would, high-quality blades are high-quality blades whether their shaving legs or a face!
If you’re tired of being charged 37% more, give us a look. You’ll get a nice tin with you first delivery in which you can store the razors (no wasteful plastic cassettes). The razors always fit through your letterbox so you’ll always get them Plus with the extra bonus of regular deliveries, you don’t need to worry about forgetting to buy new ones; you’ll always have fresh blades, and for that your legs will thank you!
Ladies, I want you to know what a good shave means to a man. It may not seem of particular importance, but given that most men do it every morning it’s a good thing for you to know about. Especially, since many men are still doing it wrong, and I’m hoping you can help me…
Between 1930 and 1934 the SS Morro Castle made lucrative trips between New York and Havana, Cuba. In the midst of the Great Depression and alcohol prohibition in the United States, the Morro Castle offered 489 passengers an escape on a booze-fueled party cruise. On the 5 Sept. 1934, she departed Havana and should have…
Yup, it is right around the corner and you haven’t found anything yet. This is the man who changed your diapers at 3am, taught you to ride a bike, and pretended not to notice that you were still/already drunk when you showed up for brunch. The man deserves a little thanks; subscriptions are great ideas….
