  1. I don’t think it detracts, exactly, but it confuses me that Dove is going against its own financial interests. ALTHOUGH, most of the Dove products I have seen have been for soap and body wash and shampoo and conditioner, normal personal cleanliness items, not items designed to make you feel inferior.

  2. This is a stunning film — the plastic surgery images are intense, creepy, horrifying. This film, and the early one you posted on this blog (evolution), are really top-notch education — in under 2 minutes each!

  3. I’m glad you liked it. Here is the first Dove film I posted back in March.

  4. It appears the Dove/skin bleach in India connection is that Unilever makes the “Fair & Lovely” skin whitener. Unilever also manufactures several Dove products.

    One of Dove’s products is an “energy glow shimmering lotion with skin brighteners” … promises your skin a “subtle radiant glow.”

    The quality of their “real beauty” campaign is an ironic juxtaposition to their financial interest in women purchasing products to make themselves look better / younger / smoother / brighter / etc ad nauseum.
