This post is about how gender norms play a role in our every day life. I thought it would be interesting to compare the difference in self-care products used before bed every night. Items such as shampoo, conditioner, face wash, razors, and body wash, are worked into our life from the time we are a child. Scents and colors matching the gender we identify with. Not only is the packaging different for me and women, women are also pushed more items through marketing telling them to look a certain way and buy more products to make them beautiful. I decided to focus on the items my boyfriend has in his travel bag compared to mine. This is not the case for all women, some may not buy as many self-care products as me and that does not make them less feminine just as a male having more products does not make him less masculine. But, from my point of view as a woman, I have felt the pressure to use more body and face products in comparison to my boyfriend. Therefore, I decided to focus on the difference between the number of our products, the packaging, and the purpose. Enjoy!
