Alright; so I am here to question the existence of something completely pointless:
Separate razors for both women and men.
What the FUCK is the point of that?
Is there something that makes the skin on my legs different from the skin on my
So if there is a difference between skin so different that I need a different razor,
why can I still use the same razor for multiple body parts that I shave, yet he can't

You want to know the real difference between men's and women's razors?
One is pink.
Seriously, they do the exact same thing, but one is pink. O_o

Society has created such a stigma so that you will buy into the Skintimate line.
You would feel disgusting about men's shampoo, too, if they told you that you
People don't really understand how much advertising affects our subconscious.
It implants the idea that we are too fat, that we are too ugly, that we are too manly

And we buy the products to fix this accordingly.
It may not want to make you run out and buy the product right then and there, but you
will soon enough. It does play to the weaknesses of a target group. Women, in this
