Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@Ispend2much6   Message- don’t be openly ashamed but be secretly ashamed. You’re not allowed to admit you don’t like your cellulite, thinning hair or dry scalp anymore even though they’re not ideal and you need to fix them and we have your cure.   Yeah no.  I am not into the mind games.  Just tell me the suggested solution and stop with the campaign that makes women feel suppressed about voicing their insecurities while making them insecure.  

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@Ispend2much6  Oh good grief. I reeeeally hate it when retailers/magazines/brands/etc. do this crap. “Oh, you have this harmless thing that most other humans also have? No need to be ashamed but, um, you gotta fix it or you’re not worthy. Let us tell you how!” 😡 Insecurity = profit. 

 

I say that a lot about products aimed at reducing neck wrinkles. I realize some folks really are self conscious about their neck wrinkles and hey, if they wanna use products for that, it’s cool. I’m not the skincare police. But when companies create marketing buzz around it and focus on the insecurity aspect, I get very annoyed. I don’t care about my neck wrinkles. My neck has bent and swiveled all day (and sometimes during the night as I sleep) for nearly 48 years, so of course it has wrinkles, and I’m not gonna let some insecurity-targeted marketing buzz make me worry about them. 

 

We all probably have at least one insecurity about a part of our body. We don’t need companies/media creating new insecurities about body parts we hadn’t thought about. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@WinglessOne   You are very eloquent, and described exactly how I feel.  Obviously I love to pamper myself with beauty products; no shame in any woman doing that.  But yeah, where does it stop?  How perfect do women have to be?  Maybe I'm wrong, but I don't see quite the same pressure on men to be physically perfect.  My husband loves me the way I am, and that's all that really matters.  He would even like me to use less makeup (because, he reasons without saying so aloud, it would cost less money.)  Smiley Happy

If there were a neck wrinkle or chin reducing cream that really worked as well as it is promoted, there would be no demand for plastic surgery. Smiley Happy 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@Ispend2much6   Men feel that pressure too but in a different way.  They’re marketed at for balding, body building (being scrawny)  and for how much money they bring in and save.  As women were more likely to be objectified and to objectify ourselves as a result of where we’re at in society.  It’s changing but not as fast as people like to think.  

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@Ispend2much6  I think this might be the new trend now. A few butt masks have launched over the past few months. Sephora just came out with those sheet masks, but I don't know if a one-size-fits-all will work for the area, lol. I use the same scrubs/lotions as the rest of my body, so I don't think I need a separate product.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

 

They are talking about Folliculitis, which is also seen on other parts of the body (often found on arms or legs).  This is little red bumps, inflamed hair follicles, which are often treated with Dermadoctor KP Lotion or exfoliation. 

 

(On the First Aid Beauty product label above, it says "Cleansing Body Polish with Activated Charcoal," and says nothing about the product being intended "only for butts.")

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I am soooooo behind the beauty times! I didn't know this was a thing.  @Ispend2much6 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@l8totheparty   I just saw this tonight myself.  Smiley Happy

@sonnydee   Well that would make sense then.  Smiley Happy

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@Ispend2much6  I;m sorry if I offend anyone, but I feel like this is just a gimmick now. I feel that if you wash your back side in the shower correctly, you dont need all that extra stuff. I can be wrong, but I feel like this is just a way to get more money out of people.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@Anastasiya13 @That’s exactly what this is!  It’s possible to get folliculitis from shaving and then sweating (like if you were to shave your legs before going to the gym), but you don’t need a special wash to prevent it.  

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@heartsmyface  Damn there are ladies who shave their behind? I mean I guess to each their own on that part. Yeah I feel like the special wash is just to bank off the people who think they need a specific product.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@Anastasiya13  oh dang I can’t recall this youtubers name but I’m sure she wouldn’t be hard to find... she was spouting some cr@p about how women should shave all their body hair off cause men don’t like it and they notice.  I assume she had a following that ate it all up so I bet there are lots of women who try.  

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@heartsmyface  Since needs to read more then, because some of that hair is to stop infections and so that we dont get sick as much, and second of all she should realize that its a new time, and woman should not change for a man.  Some people need to get out of a mental box, and see that there is a whole different world out there.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@Anastasiya13   I had never seen or read about that type of issue  before.  It honestly cracked me up!  You do have to wonder some time if some people in the beauty business sit there and try to think up of what type of bodily issue can we make women feel paranoid about now so we can provide them with a costly "fix."

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@Ispend2much6  Haha so true....soon you will be hearing about specific scrubs for the tatas. Honestly even products in general for woman are nuts at times. Even the towel thats only for tatas. I am just curious whats next.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@Anastasiya13   I hadn’t heard of special tata scrubs before now.  That sounds...unenjoyable. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@heartsmyface  Yeah it does not sound nice, but heck you never know what they will invent next

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@Anastasiya13 Those already exist

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@GG84  Oh wow...guess I did not come upon that scrub yet.
