Be Beautiful, Be Th Next Dove Girl!

In a study that Dove conducted to know how women see themselves in 2011, sadly, only 4% find themselves beautiful, while the rest, which is 96%, think that they just look average or normal. With, Dove's advocacy to make every woman in the world to feel the real beauty among themselves, they've been pushing this real beauty campaign for 12 years. And now, they want every woman to be part of it, hence they are inviting you woman reader to be their Next Dove Girl.

In a blog conference that they hosted last week at Romulo's Cafe, beauty bloggers and beauty movers were asked to join them in this intimate dinner where guest themselves experience the natural beauty that Dove is talking about.

From a little makeup session, photoshoot and fun and really inspiring chat over dinner, everyone had a great time learning we can help every girl in the world to feel beautiful. And of course, with the help of Dove cream bar, everyone is expected to be glowing and confident with their looks and style in no time.
