5 Beauty Products They Should Stop Selling This Women’s Day (Or Any Other Day)

By  | 

Women are often told that we are beautiful. Pretty. Stunning. But they are also told that they need a bunch of products to be this beautiful. They are good, just not good enough. Their messaging is, ‘You look nice but those tiny pimples that are barely visible, yeah, they are not cool.’ So we spend a truckload of money, and time hoping to get the exact results they promise. Most of the time, the claims they make are tall, which is okay, we are used to crushing disappointment. It’s when they sell us a bunch of absolute bulls*** in the name of beauty that we get really furious. And for once and for all, these beauty products need to stop being sold.


Skin lightening Creams

Let’s admit it, as a country, we love fair people. And we tell women who are duskier that they should pummel garbage on their face to make themselves fairer and worthy of jobs, and love. Oh stop with this drivel, it’s absolute nonsense and we want none of it.


Vagina tightening

Your face isn’t good enough they said. But they are now also telling you, your vagina isn’t good enough. It’s too loose and nobody enjoys that. Subject yourself to a vagina tightening cream and impress the husband or boyfriend. Our eyes are rolled right at the back of our skull.

Bust Increasing Creams

Small boobies have no takers. Don’t you feel inadequate that your breasts barely fill in a C cup? You don’t? Why ever not? You need to gently massage your breasts with these creams and you will go up a cup size and be attractive to men. Which is basically the reason for your existence. Nope.


Foundations With 5 Shades

Psst, beauty companies. I don’t know if you’ve heard of this thing called diversity but it is where you give women more options than 5 foundation shades. in a country with more than a billion people, you acknowledge that you might not fit the entire spectrum in 5 shades and offer foundations in more colours than what suits your crappy attitude.

Stretch Mark Creams

I don’t know any, but if you do, we would love to meet a woman who willingly got herself stretch marks. Mostly, they are the by product of a pregnancy, weight gain or weight loss or something else. Either way, it’s not your business. And companies that insist that any sort of imperfection on women should be done away with, should be done away with themselves.
