Thought-Provoking Video Compares The Cost Of Being A Modern Man Vs. A Modern Woman

Surprise, surprise ...

Scrubbing, exfoliating, moisturizing, priming, contouring, curling ... to most guys, these words mean little to nothing, but ask any lady and she'll tell you they are inseparable from her morning routine.

The video follows two people — Alison and Jason — going about their morning routine.

The meter at the bottom counts the average sum of money men and women spend on personal hygiene products in one year.

At first, their spending goes dollar to dollar, but it doesn't take long for it to change dramatically.
