Common themes represented here:

PIV-centric narrative — Pathologize older women and menopause/fetishize female youth.  Anti-aging products are low-hanging fruit, but illustrate perfectly the pathologization of older women.  Older women’s bodies are inadequate because they are no longer vulnerable to reproductive harm via mandatory PIV and rape.  Younger women’s bodies are vulnerable to reproductive harm, and this is desired over the alternative.  See also Fetishize female vulnerability.

Pornify girl children/infantilize adult women.  Bizarrely, this product does not claim to make skin “look younger,” although it implies it — rather it claims to make skin act younger.  Who’s your daddy?
