The first Pop-Up will be held in Bournemouth on 9 May, followed by events in Norwich, London, Wolverhampton and Preston.

Will you choose beautiful?

Dove have done it again with their latest #ChooseBeautiful campaign which launched on April 7. Setting up signs above side-by-side doors in 5 cities around the world. In each city, one door read “Beautiful” and the other “Average.” A camera crew then monitored the way women reacted to the doors – and which one they chose to walk through. The results provide powerful commentary on how many women around the world perceive their own beauty.

Which door would you have chosen? And is your perception of beauty based on your personal definition or others? Thought provoking stuff from the Dove brand which is commanding the female empowerment space in the beauty sector right now. We love!
