#TrueBeauty Real Mirror Test

Dove are undoubtly well known and, for some reason, quite widely loved for their True Beauty campaigns where for over a decade they have preyed on womans insecurities making it out that we all think we are ugly, unworthy and generally not attractive but then miraculously Dove tells them they are and WHAM they are injected with confidence and feel amazing about themselves and live happily ever after.

No matter what your thoughts on the campaigns are or are not, this parody will surely make you laugh and make you stop and wonder about whether all the other campaigns were really as effective…

No matter what Dove says, your own self image and being able to face your own reflection is what matters. So do some mirror staring if required, and touch up that lipstick! 😉
