If you haven't seen images and video clips from Dove's Real Beauty Campaign, you must have been living under a rock for the last few years. Their use of real, normal, multi-shaped/colored/sized women to advertise their products has been innovative and inspiring. They are continuing this campaign with their latest project in collaboration with the feature film, The Women, out in theaters today, Friday September 12th.Dove worked with film director Diane English to create a short film called The Women Behind “The Women.” This short film follows 16-year-old teen journalist Cammy Nelson behind-the-scenes of The Women to learn, first-hand, how Hollywood creates the images we see on screen, highlighting the work and people involved in making a major motion picture come to life.
The short film encourages women to challenge today’s beauty stereotypes, celebrates the opportunities for women to empower one another and explores the diverse definitions of beauty, shared through interviews with some of the cast and crew of The Women. The Women Behind “The Women” is available exclusively on Dove.com.

I'm going to see the movie next Friday will a group of ladies from work. Should be tons of fun. I loved the original film from 1939, so I'm curious to see how well they re-did it. It has so many great actresses in it (Meg Ryan, Annette Bening, Eva Mendes) that it has to be good. If you go see it first, don't tell me what happens!
Dove sent me a few products to try as well, their Cool Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner and another stick of their wonderfully silky deodorant in Smooth Cashmere. I actually like the hair products a lot. They give my fine hair just enough moisture without weighing it down and the cucumber and green tea scent compliments my other fragrances just fine (very important to me!). The deodorant, as I've reviewed before, it great for keeping me dry, smelling fresh and moisturizing my delicate underarms!
So, go watch the mini-documentary, see the film, and try out some Dove products.
