Can you beat the “Pink Tax” by buying blue? Save up to 67% buying items aimed at the opposite sex
Results – up to 41% off if you buy the men’s version
Comparing today to the first survey of this issue in 2016, it is clear that brands such as Tesco and Asda have stopped selling certain items labeled specifically for men or women, which made the comparison trickier.
We found that for most of the original products we compared, the cheaper one or two blade options were no longer available or were at the same price – so we dug deeper to see if that was the case. for razors with more blades. . At Superdrug, a pack of four three-blade razors is the same price for men and women. However, a three-pack disposable five-blade razor is 19% cheaper for men, so if you’re looking for a multi-blade razor, check the prices.
For branded razors, two in three men were cheaper than women (that would have been three out of three, but Gillette razors for women are offered at Waitrose) by up to 41%, but if you went for the cheapest clean unisex – branded single blade razor, you could save even more.
For own-brand razors, three in five were the same, one was 19% cheaper for men and 32% cheaper for women. It should be noted that where we found women’s razors to be cheaper, this was only due to in-store deals – without which the razors would either be priced the same or more.
Our analysis seems to suggest that men and women should be vigilant about the cost of razors and always check offers and prices to make sure they are getting the best deal.
