Beauty Lies

Beauty alert! When personal care companies advertise, do you believe their claims?

In the previous post, I raised this question and now there is further proof that beauty companies deal in deception first, and your well-being last.

The Advertising Standards Authority has banned an ad for Johnson and Johnson’s Clean and Clear Spot Control Kit and deemed it as deceptive and misleading. In the commercial, young girls (who are not actresses, according to J & J) are depicted before and after using the product. In the before pictures, the girl’s faces are blotchy and shiny. In the after ones, their skin is smooth and clear. It was reported that in the before picture, the girl’s had no face makeup on. Their skin was completely bare. In the after shot, J&J admits a light powder was applied to their skin.

If a company can be deceptive simply in their promotional material, isn’t it likely that they are deceptive about the effectiveness or safety of their product?

What do you think?

Does something like this make you feel misled? Do you feel like you wasted money on products because the company manipulated the results?

    Very deceptive indeed! A lot of after shots are also altered to manipulate the effectiveness of a product. It’s totally unfair and uncalled for. I’m positive this post will serve as an eye opener to many women. Thank you for sharing!

    Wow!!! I am not surprised but I didn’t know it would reach to that extent.
