A recent Dove ad has gone viral – it now has more than 3 million views.

The ad, published April 14, features an artist who is sketching women based on their description of themselves – then, based on their description from another person’s point of view.

The result? The woman’s image of herself was always less flattering than the strangers’ description.

Here is what Dove says about the ad:

“Women are their own worst beauty critics. Only 4 percent of women around the world consider themselves beautiful. At Dove, we are committed to creating a world where beauty is a source of confidence, not anxiety. So, we decided to conduct a compelling social experiment that explores how women view their own beauty in contrast to what others see.”

What are your thoughts?
