Choose Beautiful with Dove

Hi guys,

I've always loved the Dove brand. The body wash is a staple in my shower and I use the hand wash religiously (in a normal way, not an obsessive, I must clean my hands all the time way lol)

The formula is brilliant. I'm sensitive and this one is perfect for me. You can work it into a foamy lather and wash your cares away, well probably sweat but that doesn't sound as good ;)

I love how affordable they are and the range of scents you can get and I always add a Dove set to my birthday and Christmas list! Yes I still have a list at 27! What can I say I'm a child at heart! Haha.

I realise I have two the same here but my orange one ran out :(

Knowing that these products add moisture and repair your skin is just an added bonus.

Then they launched the new #choosebeautiful campaign and my love for this brand has grown enormously which as I'm pretty much loyal to their products, says a lot!

They recently showed a clip at different department stores in various countries and under each door were the words beautiful or average. Which door do you walk through? Most of the women chose average. Not surprising as we tend to downplay our own opinions of ourselves.

However what we need to take from this clever marketing campaign is that regardless of age, if you're gay or straight, fat or thin, have a disability or wear glasses, we are all beautiful.

We are beautiful for our differences, our similarities and for the strengths and weaknesses we all bring to the world. Each aspect makes us who we are as people.

Yes this is made to drive up sales and good on Dove for that. Just like the fast food chain advertising about free range hens and British beef is shown, so you buy more microwaved burgers. It's all about getting noticed and with Dove, I still love the products even without the self esteem boost.

My point is, it's so easy to focus on the negative, I'm so guilty of this especially lately but we need to take a moment and remember the good things about ourselves!

We need to #choosebeautiful

Much Love,

    1. No probs beautiful :)
      Definately give them a try, affordable and feel great so it's worth it x

  3. I really like where you went with this post! I wasn't actually aware of the newer campaigns but I think its a great message to get across! I've never actually tried any dove products apart from their shampoo and deodorant I think! I might pick some up after having read this :)
    I know how much more comfortable I feel and how much more confident I am when I look after my body and moisturise so I think their message it quite fitting! It's good to feel good about caring for yourself!

    1. Agreed hun, we need to look at the positives even when the negatives try to overwhelm us mentally. I'm glad you enjoyed and try the body washes! I love the orange one, smells delish :D x
