I wish I knew the people behind the marketing of Dove, I would like to give them a hug. I always love their commercials, they always promote women’s natural, beauty without make-up. I remember before that they had a commercial about young girls being under pressure on socially accepted beauty, it promoted self-esteem. You know young children are vulnerable about what other people tell them. Insecurity about one’s appearance starts at a very young age. I speak from experience because when I was a tween, I was very insecure and awkward. But as I grew older I learned that beauty is different in each individual, we should not be affected by the norm of beauty that the society shows.
So to tell you something about a commercial, Dove asked a forensic artist from FBI to make a sketch of different women. Each woman described to the artist how they look like and the artist draws it. This sketch is compared to another sketch, in which a person they just met described to the artist how they look like. Watch the video below so you can see what each woman’s reaction is.
Dove is all about self-esteem and self-worth. Dove wants to show people what real beauty is. So to young girls and women, we are more beautiful than we think!
I am no beauty blogger but I want to share to women, especially MOMS, the products I love that you might want to try. Every woman has issues with their skin and hair, even celebrities do. For us ordinary people, who can’t afford celebrity treatments there are a lot of products that can help use achieve much better skin and hair. Best thing about these products is that they are super affordable.
It’s called beauty for less!
I do have occasional breakouts before my period but at least these products help my skin to have lesser pimples, maybe one or 2 pimples a month. I also don’t have the perfect hair, my hair is actually frizzy if I don’t use these products. When I say frizzy, I mean sabog ang hair ko kung ordinary shampoo and conditioner ang ginagamit ko. I am not gifted when it comes to hair but I am blessed with good facial skin. I have skin issues in my arms too because I live in Baguio. I get a few bumps in my arms when it gets really cold. It’s like goose bumps, but their semi permanent. I can’t get rid of them totally. I was able to get rid of them once using St. Ives Clear Pore Body Wash but that body wash is not sold anymore, so they came back.
I don’t use make up or go to the spa for treatments. My sister told me to never use make up because make-up will make me mature. I’m baby face daw kasi. Chos! When I go to the salon I only go there to get a haircut. So I just buy products that I can use at home at the same time are inexpensive.
These products keep my skin clearer and my hair more manageable.
I have a combination skin on my face. That means that my t-zone is oily and my cheeks are dry. For my face I just use Ponds facial wash and I moisturize with St. Ives Collagen Elastin Facial Moisturizer because my cheeks get flaky. That means they’re very dry. I love this moisturizer because it has collagen. I have used this moisturizer in my tummy to minimize stretch marks after I gave birth and it really worked. This product keeps my facial skin supple all day long. I use these two, twice a day, in the morning and before bed.
This facial wash really works in minimizing black heads. This is only around P165 and I have been using this for 3 months now. It’s so sulit! (Available at supermarkets and drug stores.)
This moisturizer is P235 a jar. It’s really big so I use for a long time. I think I use one jar for 3-5 months. Another sulit product! (Available at Watson’s and Tiong San)
