Dove commercial

Was checking my hotmail email, and saw this commercial on the front. Somehow it made me feel good, just wanted to share

Really dislike this commercial. So if I think I'm ugly, dove is my answer to be beautiful? Not for me.

dove- it's ok to be their kind of beautiful

the firming cream ads bum me out, too. ok, sure, maybe the wmn are all larger than regular models but they're all beautiful and they all have a high hip:waist ratio... "real" beauty, hmmm

To the 2nd and 3rd poster: Which commercial are you watching? If you watch the commercial, it doesn't say anything about Dove being the answer to how you feel/look. It's a Self Esteem Fund they are sponsoring. They don't even show any of their products. This one shows all the little girls and how they feel about themselves. I think it's an awesome commerical and about time somebody addressed what society is doing to our young girls' body images.

To OP: I agree, it makes me feel good too and makes me realize there is nothing wrong with how I look...:-)

I thought this was a neat commercial. We are dealing with self-esteem and body issues at our house. Not just me, but my 9-year-old (who tends toward the heavier build) and even my 6-year-old. It's too bad that girls can't just be girls for a while, instead of having to worry about their weight, looks, etc.

I liked the self-esteem fund commercial as well.

I can identify with the little Asian Girl who "wishes she were blond"....

I saw it during the super bowl and thought it was a cute idea.

I liked the commercial as well. It put a smile on my face. It doesn't say thatDove is the answer. We are all beautiful so be happy with what you have been blessed with :)

To the poster raising a 9 year old girl - the book "Reviving Ophelia" by Pipher is an awesome book; it discusses raising girls in today's society and self-esteem issues. It's actually good reading for everyone.

so what is it?

This "uniquely me" girl scout thing -- does anyone know what they actually do? I'm wondering how you really counteract a whole society of esteem-bashing....
Nice idea though. I looked at some old childhood photos of myself, and was shocked at what a cute, normal kid I was. I thought I was this freakishly huge monster my whole childhood.... what a waste.
Oh, and tip to the mom -- you may tell your daughter she's great, but if you're hard on YOURself she will pick up on that. SO be sure to be good to yourself too!
