BORROW FROM THE BOYS
Are your everyday beauty products costing you more just because you’re a woman?
Tesco may have got the ball rolling and dropped the cost of women’s razors, but the ‘Pink Tax’ still means that women are regularly paying more than men for the same items. Hidden behind varying quantities and prices per ml, everything from shaving foam to face wash is often way pricier for women. In fact, us gals spend a whopping 37 per cent more on average than our male counterparts! Until the law sorts itself out (ahem, Teresa May, we’re looking at you) why not save easy £££s and buy like the boys? Or better yet, just borrow your BF’S for free.
Fragrance 50% more expensive
moisturiser often 20% more expensive
shaving Foam 43% more expensive
razors 33% more expensive
shower gel & Bath products can be up to 78% more expensive
Women often pay DOUBLE the price for face Washes and scrubs
