So, when it comes to beauty and hygiene products, women usually get the short end of the financial stick, otherwise known as dealing with the "Pink Tax." The women of Ladylike decided to exchange their female beauty products for men's. Are they actually worse, or is it all marketing?
Let's talk about the Pink Tax. Women's products are often priced higher than the equivalent products for men. While women do have more options, it's odd that two things with the same ingredients would be priced differently.
The ladies traded in their beloved “girl” products for those from the men’s section for a week to see if the products were really that different. LET'S GET TO SMELLING.
First of all, the women were amazed to see how much money they saved JUST by switching to men's products.
Let the week begin! The strength of the products' smell almost blew every woman's hair off.
The 2-in-1 hair products were garbage for their lustrous locks...
...but the razors really came through for the win.
Freddie's boyfriend was just confused AF. In fact, many S.O.s were not havin' it.
At the end of the week, Candace was sick of thinking she was waking up to a dude...
...and Jen, well, Jen was feelin' herself.
Freddie had mixed feelings about the shampoo and lack of ethnic products...
...and Saf was just ready for her regular skincare routine.
They might have saved a ton of money, but many of the products couldn't live up to their near and dear beauty regimens.
