I'm not too surprised; the same people that manufacture Dove are the same people that make Axe and Slimfast.

Um Dove seems to be contradicting itself. Maybe not that surprising, but dissappointing still. What happened to love the body you have? Wasn't that the point of their True Beauty campaign?

:O umm wowwwwww contradictory much?

"MUST HAVE FLAWLESS SKIN, NO TATTOOS OR SCARS!

Let's present ourselves in a noble light ('body acceptance' is the message!) and then shamelessly undermine these principles in the very advertisement that is supposed to promote them...

Good one Dove!

lol i'm sorry but what even is perfect... if they want 'perfect' skin, why don't they just use an airbrush?

And I'll get my armpits out how I like! if the weather is warm, i'll wear a tank top and not think twice. i'm pretty sure i don't need any miracle products to sort me out.

Oh for fuck's sake.

Sorry if bad language offends anyone, but what FadingHippie posted is honestly the most contradictory thing I've ever read.

Real beauty indeed. Glad I never liked Dove.

I hate to be so cynical but Dove's 'Real Women' campaign was nothing but a very cleverly thought out advertising plot and publicity stunt. The bigwigs running the company wouldn't give two hoots about empowering real women and showing 'real beauty', they just knew that pretending to would give them a wonderful reputation and many more buyers. And, until now when things like this are released, it actually did sort of work. The public loves this sort of stuff.

Welp. Sort of liked Dove, as much as you can like a major corporate brand anyway. It's not the armpit thing at all. It's the casting call. Don't pretend you're embracing diversity and then ask your models to fit a little bit less restrictive box. Plus, I'm allergic to half their products anyway so now I just have double reason not to buy them (or Slimfast or Axe).

Not sure. Do lynx commercials feature skanky women throwing themselves at a man who's just put on deodorant?
