[Premiile FIBRA #1] Bronze FIBRA - Kubis Interactive - Dove - Real Beauty is You / Dove / Unilever

Dove has always celebrated real women. Everything we do, everything we show, everything we believe, begins and ends with real women. They aren't just our consumers. They are our heritage, our inspiration, our collaborators, and our supporters. We do it this way because we know that every woman has the potential to be her most beautiful self. And with Dove's care, she will be.

In a world in which women are often held back by low self-esteem and anxiety about their looks, Dove's Mission is to encourage women to develop a positive relationship with beauty, helping to raise their self-esteem and thereby enabling them to realize their full potential.The majority of Romanian women consider that beauty is more about the way they look, not about their feeling or personality.


Campaign Summary

Based on the insight that Romanian women are considered beautiful, but they do not acknowledge this, we developed an activation that aimed to increase Romanian women their self-esteem.

In order to support the brand's promise in 2015 we developed Faceook app. on International Women's Day in partnership with webdex.ro in order to encourage women to change their perspective towards the definition of beauty. This partnership was meant to change the Romanians mindset regarding "beauty".

Our main objective was to change the Romanian women the mindset regarding the definition of "beauty" and encourage them to trust themselves and develop a positive relationship with beauty. Through the "Real Beauty is You" app, Dove encourages women to embrace positive thinking in everything they do and rediscover the true meaning of "beauty".

The users were invited to enter the app. and select from their Facebook friends person they think are the definition of beauty. After selecting a friend a Facebook crawler borrowed the profile picture of that person and displayed it on webdex.ro, one of the biggest online dictionaries, next to the definition of "Beautiful" and other words from the same semantic field (beauty, nice, pretty, kind, adorable etc.).

When users searched the word "beauty" or other words from the same semantic field on webdex.ro, they could see the pictures of everybody who were deemed beautiful.


Target Audience

Women, 18 - 49 YO.

By using the brand she gets the reassurance she needs to feel confident.
