    I can’t believe my car costs so much more than my wife’s car. They both have engines, wheels and are made of metal. Both have air conditioning, electric windows and seats. I MUST be getting ripped off

              Equivalent products ≠ the same products
              And if you really think they're the same, get the product for men.

                Is male and female skin identical? If so, use men's product as it wont ruin your skin.

                    This has been debunked so many times. Prices are lied about. Products have different ingredients. It's all BS. If women REALLY were "Pink taxed" and this came out....like it has...you really think these products would still be selling? Or are you implying that women are too dumb to know better? Also, same goes for the wage gap. If it were true, don't you think greedy, toxic masculine, male CEO's/business owners would be hiring ONLY women? It's called LOGIC. You might want to try it.

                      If they are "the same" then buy the cheaper one for men dummies

                              They compare Olay, a brand that is known as a name brand and also as a higher quality, and Neutrogena, a brand that I’ve been using for years since it’s cost efficient and gets the job done. They didn’t compare women and men Nuetrogena products because it’s more or less the same price/ingredients.

                                where exactly am i legally allowed to pay women less than men for the exact same work with the exact same results?

                                  if i was a woman i'd be very offended at being told "you're stupid enough to choose to pay more for the EXACT SAME product".....or maybe they are not the exact same product and that's why women CHOOSE not to buy the less expensive ones?

                                    Jesus Christ it’s no wonder almost everybody is Atheist nowadays, look at the shit that we have going on right now, there is no God, because supposedly God doesn’t make mistakes, well guess what, if there is one, he fucking did!

                                        It sucks that these people are FORCED to buy the women’s product, we should probably pass a law that makes it so you could buy whatever you want

                                            Or an even better solution would be to buy a gender neutral product. I actually can't believe this video didn't offer a solution like this, a perfect time for it would be at the 2:20 mark.

                                          It’s not a pink tax. It’s companies taking advantage of people for the price of beauty. Just buy men’s Lel

                                            This is so GOD DAMN stupid. There are real reasons why female products cost more...
                                            For one, MEN won't pay as much for stupid shit like lotion..
                                            Second, I can almost guarantee that there are more expensive ingredients in female products..
                                            I feel stupider having watched this joke of a segment. It's just more women complaining about useless shit.

                                              I would image the design of the packaging is included in the price jump. Designing an Olay packaging looks original and the copyright is unique to them. Also most men don't buy a lot of products so they lower prices to appeal to male demographics. If women want they should buy product that is targeting for men.

                                                  If they AREN'T literally THE SAME PRODUCT, there is no reason they should cost the same.
                                                  If they ARE literally THE SAME PRODUCT, then why not just buy the cheaper one anyways?
                                                  Also, I wonder why the ointments that come in glass containers are more expensive than the ones that come in plastic tubes? Couldn't possibly be because it's more expensive to make/transport or anything. It's just sexism!

                                                    Its almost like it takes more effort and more expensive ingredients to take care more sensitive skin.

                                                  So, Women should just buy Men's Products then.
                                                  If they must have the fancy women's then Supply And Demand Economics apply.

                                                  It should also be mentioned GREATER DEMAND allows for higher charging.

                                                  If you don't like the cost, reduce purchasing. Thus reducing Demand 😅 Supply will build and plop Discount.

                                                  That initial analogy is fucking stupid and not the a valid argument whatsoever and misses the issue. These products are only similar and not the exact same. Stop complaining about you falling for marketing tactics. If you want a better price buy the cheaper moisturizer, that doesnt it's just as good. Have you ever tried a men's product. They're fucking awful. They don't do shit half the time and leave you smelling like boiled cat placenta, moldy wood and some other undistinguishable chemicals. Women's products are the shit, like fuck me my tatcha water cream slaps so fucking hard I wouldn't trade it for some nutrogeona bullshit marketed to men just because it says penis only.

                                                      MAYBE and this is just an idea. That there's gping to be a difference in price when you buy it from different brands or ones that have less ingredients

                                                        This is a ridiculous story because there are many cheap moisturizers and skin creams for women that are in the 10 dollar range and by the brand nutregena too. There is no pink tax. There are cheap brands and then there are expensive brands. Take make up for example. I as a women could go to Sephora and spend $50 or $40 on a face powder or I could go to Ulta and buy face powder from Europe that is actually just as good for around $3. Please!! It's just the stinking brand you get.

                                                          The reason women's moisturizer cost more is becuase it's higher demand. I cannot tell you the last time I heard a man talking about the type of moisturizer he wears because we don't wear it. Also the cost like they said in the video goes into the packaging a woman's moisturizer goes into an expensive glass or plastic bowl with a screw-on top while the men's goes in a cheap squeezable tube. If you want to save money women don't wear makeup men don't.

And yes I would pay a pretty penny for those products because they actually work. American products as crap compared to the stuff you see in Asia.
