This is pretty nifty

I'm sure you've all seen the new Dove Beauty Campaign that's been circulating around.  If not, here is the link: Real beauty Sketches

I felt that this was a great way to just reiterate the need to recognize your inner beauty and to give yourself credit where credit is due. I think Dove said only 4% of women find themselves beautiful, which, with a small number, one can only assume that there are models and women society finds exceptionally beautiful who are not within that small number.  Just because they have been hyped up in our eyes doesn't mean that they feel any differently about themselves than what we feel about ourselves.

This serves as a very profound reminder that we are all far too critical of ourselves, and I hope that someday, we will be able to, myself included, see our positive attributes and feel that those are the most prominent features as opposed to our negative being the first and foremost in our minds.


  1. Interesting! I couldn't get the video to play on my iPod, not sure why, but I could tell what they were about from the headings. Very interesting exercise! I'll check the videos when I'm on my desk top.
    Thanks for posting, I wasn't aware Dove had done this!

    1. Thanks for reading!

      You should definitely try to view the video again; it's worth it in my opinion. It's very similar to their last big campaign where they showed you in quick time all of the digital "enhancements" they do on a model's face before they use it to advertise a product.

    2. I saw that one- it was cool!
