Watch This Video: Dove Real Beauty Sketches

April 18, 2013 | By | Comments (2)

Have you seen this video that’s making it’s way around the Internet this week? I found it fascinating. Dove had a sketch artist create a portrait of a woman based on her description of herself and then a second portrait based on a stranger’s description of her. Then they compared the two sketches.

What do you think they found? The sketches where women described themselves were filled with nitpicky details that the strangers didn’t notice. Watch the video and share your reactions in the comments. How would you describe yourself in that situation?

Then check out some of our favorite real-women beauty makeovers.

    It is an interesting commercial, for sure, but still a commercial. Keep in mind that we have their parent company, Unilever, to thank for Axe Body Spray commercials, as well.

    You might find this post on the subject thought-provoking:

    I cried with this commercial. I thank Dove for empowering woman and encouraging us to see ourselves as others see us (how we should look at ourselves).
