I don’t believe that the author, Kaitlyn, understands the difference between male-pattern baldness which affects the top and crown of the head, and hair growth on the face: When you get old, you don’t grow as much hair, so you don’t shave as much. And yet after all that writing and investigation - she is aware of only the major market brands and is still using a Gillette.

Hmmn.. wouldn’t an infomercial be produced by Gillette? I looked for something that stated such at the bottom, but didn’t see it. What was it that caught your attention?

"VOX MEDIA Advertise with us" The author of article, VOX staff writer. Seeing how it did mention a couple of "new " brand shaving companies, I believe one or all "paid" for the
article.

Vox media is just a grouping of seven media properties - the vox channel is simply general interest news and opinion pieces. They cover technology, sports, as well as gaming on different channels. If someone chooses to advertise with Vox, they enter into a concentual content agreement where vox likely produces the content and is paid by someone else. When this occurs, they denote the article with a disclaimer regarding who paid for it. E.G.,

https://www.eater.com/ad/14324054/get-th...your-belly

Which was authored by “Vox Creative”, and in the upper-right you’ll see clearly expressed “paid content by mailchimp”


The article that the OP linked to appears to be nothing more than a Vox staff writer putting out an opinion piece (though she clearly received free razors).

Welcome to native advertising. Buzzfeed was an early pioneer of this practice— ads that look like real content. It seems an incredibly destructive practice to me.
