Although it has been over a month, I wanted to make sure I gathered enough evidence to make a conclusion about the real difference between men's and women's razors. I have come to the solid conclusion that men’s razors are in fact better than women’s. I shaved my left leg with the women’s and I shaved my right leg with the men’s for a little over a month every other day. I found that immediately afterwards the women’s was softer but however the next day the men’s was less prickly and was definitely smoother. The men’s also stayed that way for the next day while the women’s (leg) became prickly the next day and got much worse within 24 hours. It was interesting for me to conduct this little experiment, but don’t be fooled. I asked other people to feel my legs after I shaved them so I could get their opinion as well so it wasn’t bias data. 9 out of 10 times everyone said the right leg was softer meaning the men’s razor did a better job.
As seen in my first article I provided screenshots of men’s and women’s razors both from target and the substantial price difference between them. I now truly question why there is a price difference that big if the men’s razors have more in the package but are cheaper and are better than women’s. Is it solely the pink tax just biting us in the ass? Is it that women really want purple or pink razors that they spend more money on them? I questioned this a lot so I asked friends and women I know about this undying question I had. Many said that they were afraid to switch razors because they had been using these “women’s” razors for so long. Then I asked them to feel my legs and I didn’t tell them which was which, however many assumed the right one was the women’s because it was softer but it was indeed the opposite.
I also noticed that the women’s razor rusted a little at the sides and maybe this is because of how it dried but to me that shows the inconsistency of quality in the product. To sum it all up there is a discrepancy in society between men and women that has gone on since the beginning of time and I believe our generation can really help society adapt the term “equality” in its truest and finest sense. Equality means that everyone and everything is equal and many claim that equality exists in our world today but this price difference shows that even in our hygiene products there is still inequality.I hope this article found you well and you avoid the pink tax and do not conform just because your genders’ “color” is pink. Inequality exists everywhere and this is one step in the right direction to changing society for the better. I know from now on I will be buying men’s razors and I hope you give them a chance too.
