  1. Re: Dove Video – Unfortunately this type of exercise just perpetuates the superficial definition of beauty. What’s on the “outside” (facial features, hair, skin color etc) is more important than inner beauty (character, integrity, heart, soul etc).

  2. Another opinion on the Dove “Beauty Sketches”, and one I agree with on Tumblr with 25,000 notes: Why Dove’s “Real Beauty Sketches” Video Makes Me Uncomfortable… and Kind of Makes Me Angry”

  3. I think that the Dove video is beautiful. I don’t think the video promotes the “outside” more than the inside. I believe that the video was trying to say that we are beautiful in the inside and it shows through our physical appearance. It’s about how we see ourselves and how confident we are about ourselves. That’s how I interpret the video. The message is clear despite there being little diversity (ie. a fat person, an old person etc). Beauty comes form the inside and it’s true. If you are beautiful in the inside, it shows on the outside as well. The energy that we have and how confident we are about ourselves, in fact how grateful we are to be ourselves, would affect how people see you.

  4. I got this web site from my buddy who shared with me about this web site and now this time I
    am visiting this web page and reading very informative
    articles or reviews at this time.

  5. Your style is really unique compared to other folks I’ve read stuff from. Thanks for posting when you have the opportunity, Guess I will just book mark this blog.

  6. I don’t drop a leave a response, but I browsed a
    ton of remarks on swissmiss | Friday Link Pack.
    I actually do have a couple of questions for you if you do not mind.
    Is it only me or do some of the remarks come across like they are coming from brain dead
    visitors? :-P And, if you are posting on additional sites, I would like
    to keep up with you. Would you make a list of the complete urls of your shared pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page
    or linkedin profile?

  7. Hi everyone, it’s my first pay a visit at this web site, and piece of writing is really fruitful in favor of me, keep up posting such articles.

  8. Greetings from Florida! I’m bored to death at work so I decided to browse
    your website on my iphone during lunch break. I enjoy the information you present here and can’t wait
    to take a look when I get home. I’m shocked at how fast your blog loaded on my cell phone ..
