Battle Of The Sexes And The Budget

If you're a woman, have you ever taken notice how the same product for a man may cost you a little more? And it's all because of the marketing.

The January issue of Consumer Reports finds items aimed at both women and men, like shaving cream, deodorant, body wash and even pain relievers and soap, can cost women more than 50 percent extra.

According to Consumer Reports, some companies do provide a decent reason, like making a shaving cream bottle rust-resistant for women to use in the shower.

But most of the time, the item for women was exactly same, maybe just a bit dresser, with an additional price tag, proving it just costs more to be a woman, if you don't pay attention.
