On the 14th of April, Dove posted this video to their United States YouTube channel. It’s got me all emotional and really thinking about how I see myself.
Just like most women, I’m quick to point out my flaws (my round face, my annoying hair, my big calves etc.) and then I tend to focus on those things. I know I’m not unique. This is a common design flaw in humans. Watching this video has changed that I think. It’s inspiring to say the least.
Take a look
From the video: Women are their own worst beauty critics. Only 4% of women around the world consider themselves beautiful. At Dove, we are committed to creating a world where beauty is a source of confidence, not anxiety. So, we decided to conduct a compelling social experiment that explores how women view their own beauty in contrast to what others see.
What do you think? Do you focus on the negative too?
As some of you may know, I’m quite a fan of Body Thrills. Not only are their products great but they’re not super expensive. That’s a win.
Good ol’ Body Thrills currently have some pretty awesome specials running which I think you guys should run off and purchase. Okay, no running, just click here -> Body Thrill Specials! <- and spend your money. It’s worth it.
I have quite a pile of Body Thrills products growing in my bathroom and yet, I want more. What can say, I’m a sucker for things that work well and smell amazing.
