Shake, Spray and Discover with DOVE

Recently #LatinaBloggers spent the day with DOVE discovering the arts in the beautiful city of LA with host Yarel Ramos. We kicked off the morning exploring the 20th century Latin American galleries at the Los Angeles Count Museum of Art, which is quite extensive. The best part about it? Marveling at Diego and Frida's work as amigas. 

After perusing our favorite works of art, we headed over to La Guelagetza to test out tamale making skills. With the  help of owners Paola and Bricia, I'd say we did pretty well. They also served a few dishes featuring their favorite mole sauce.  Can you say decadent? 

Thank you to Dove for hosting such a fun event. Deodorant is a key part of every woman’s daily beauty routine, which is why it's so important to use one you can trust to keep feeling fresh and confident as you go about exploring your passions and interests.

With Dove Dry Spray Antiperspirant, you can just #ShakeSprayGo and have the assurance of 48-hour protection that goes on instantly dry and cares for skin with Dove ¼ moisturizers. One less thing to worry about!

"My hair story is short from boring....I've been blonde, brunette, red, & even had pink streaks at one point (yes, I've had my tacky stages too). I've never been scared to take risks with my hair and those who know me would definitely be a witness to that! Some days I wake up and I want long luscious hair, meanwhile on some other days I just want to sport the chic bob (I'm so erratic when it comes to my hair!)"

"Hace 2 meses me corte el pelo para ser mas practica con el arreglo, ademas que tenia las puntas que daban vergüenza. Cambiar de look también implica un poco de experimentación con peinados, al menos para mi que me gusta mantenerme el pelo organizado y esto para mi no se refiere a pelo cepillado, sino en peinados, trenzas o coletas lindas."

I know that is not good for the hair, that's why I always use products that can help me repair the damage caused by the heat and color. I recently started using Dove's Regenerative Nourishment line and I love it, it is infused with red algae + keratin nutri-complex which makes your hair looking stunning all the time!"

#WeAllGrow Field Trips Inspired Moments of Awe

#WeAllGrow in Long Beach, CA
#WeAllGrow in Long Beach, CA

#WeAllGrow Summit started with several magical Field Trips filled with enough moments of awe to last a lifetime. Dolphins included!

Our sponsors were so excited to meet everyone and connect with the influencers who have been killing it online (Yes, you!). Several of them joined us in organizing an unforgettable day of tours, sightseeing, relaxation and a few mimosas! Because everyone knows you can’t have a fab day without a bit of champagne. #WeAllGrow sponsors also know that the only way to create long-lasting relationships is by illustrating the mission behind their brands with meaningful experiences, which are rooted in empowerment, cultura y familia.


Select attendees were treated with a cruise to the Catalina Islands for a day of beach-front relaxation, a healthy, beautifying lunch, refreshing mimosas, and yoga under a gorgeous sunlit sky (with SPF, of course!). With scenic views in every corner and a beautiful dolphin sighting to complete the day, Neutrogena’s #VerasQueEsPosible mantra came to life.

Transitions + VisionWorks

Transitions and VisionWorks kept the day stylish with a fun tour of Los Angeles with hosts, celebrity eyewear designers Coco + Breezy! Attendees learned all about the twins’ humble beginnings in the eyewear industry and connected over a delicious vegan Mexican lunch at the popular LA restaurant, Gracias Madre. Coco and Breezy set the tone for the rest of the day as they DJ’d from their phones on the tour bus and danced with attendees as they headed back to the studio for their very own photoshoot with Transitions + VisionWorks. Latina bloggers and creators were treated to a styling session and finished off their look with a chic pair of Transitions lenses from VisionWorks, perfect for their professional street style photoshoot.

Long Beach Conventions and Visitor Bureau

As if the #WeAllGrow Summit and Latina Bloggers Connect teams didn’t suffer enough FOMO (we had meetings in lieu of trips), a group of over 40 attendees got to take in the beautiful sites of our host city, Long Beach. They started the day off with a boat tour that revisited the history of Long Beach’s scenic harbor. They were able to sit back and chat with each other while enjoying a breathtaking view of the city’s skyline and world famous Queen Mary. Shortly after their boat tour they headed to the Museum of Latin American Art located in the East Village Arts District of Long Beach. While there, Latina Bloggers had the opportunity to view MOLAA At Twenty 1996-2016 Exhibition, an extensive collection of U.S. Latino and Chicano art. A short bus ride over next led them to the Aquarium of the Pacific for a delicious lunch with a view and a VIP behind-the-scenes guided tour of the aquarium. Lastly, it wouldn’t have been a true tour of Long Beach without visiting the historic Queen Mary. Attendees wrapped up their daylong tour of Long Beach with a guided tour of the legendary ship.

Disney Parks

Disney Parks celebrated 60 years of magic with #WeAllGrow Summit attendees! Guests explored both Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventure and enjoyed rides like Star Tours and Radiator Springs Racers. Rides were followed by a beautiful day listening to the Mickey Mouse marching band and #Disneyland60 celebrations throughout the park. The day ended with a group photo of all the bloggers and creators that attended this fabulous field trip.

There’s nothing quite like visiting the YouTube Space in Los Angeles to really bring the power of its influence to life. #LatinaCreators were excited to see and experience the place they’ve virtually known and loved for so long! Guests were once again blown away by the size of YouTube Space LA and the amount of resources available to those who wish to create a channel. Many came back from their trip ready to step up their game by perfecting their SEO, upping their video content and making better use of YouTube’s analytics to further understand their audiences.

Mazda knows that #DrivingMatters, especially when you’re cruising down the Pacific Coast Highway. Attendees drove down Ocean Drive to Huntington Beach Pier in style in the brand new CX-5 before heading to the award-winning Parker’s Lighthouse for a seafood lunch in Long Beach. The day ended with a tour of the beautiful and culturally rich Museum of Latin American Art.

Setting the Beauty Bar with Dove

Harsh winter weather can leave skin dry and irritated looking, but the right skincare routine can reveal healthy-looking skin and it starts with choosing the right cleanser. For this campaign we invited a few #LatinaBloggers to ditch the soap, use Dove Beauty Bar exclusively for one week and share their results. Dove Beauty Bar maintains skin appearance, texture, clarity, even tone and brightness over time for more radiant skin! Check out what these lovely ladies had to say after a few days of using the Dove Beauty Bar Setting the Beauty Bar with Dove - Latina Bloggers Connect #SettingtheBeautyBar

"I just love how cute the Dove logo on the beauty bar is! After using the soap for about a week my skin felt radiant and smooth after every use. It felt nice to dry myself off and not feel dry and irritated. I ran my hands down my legs and wow what a difference."

Super Glam News

"Soaps often strip the skin of essential nutrients and end up drying out the skin. Luckily Dove is not a soap and is instead proven to be more gentle and mild than soap. The Dove Beauty Bar is all I’ve been using on my body and face. Yes, face too!"

#SpeakBeautiful with Dove Keynote Panel at #WeAllGrow Summit 2016


#WeAllGrow Summit 2016 is proud to partner with Dove to present three moments of awe that will elevate your inner core, provide a bit of self-care and inspire you to speak with beauty and positivism.

The Dove Suite

Dove invites you to visit the Dove Suite, located at the Luna/Solstice Room for a refresher on the latest hair & skincare trends and to meet our beauty experts, renowned hairstylist Mario Anton and board­certified dermatologist, Dr. Alicia Barba. Stop by for a personalized dry styling session and Beauty Bar manicure to celebrate your unique beauty. Feel free to relax on our outdoor terrace, taking in the gorgeous waterfront views, while enjoying refreshments and having fun with your fellow bloggers in our photobooth. We’re excited for you to join us in supporting #MujerDove, our message of confidence, empowerment and beauty for Latinas.

Crown Yourself in Confidence: Uncovering the Power of Positive Words

Beautiful. Ugly. Smart. Stupid. The power of words can have a significant impact on how we feel about ourselves and how we present ourselves to the world – whether it’s in real life or online. Too often, social media bombards women and girls with negative content that can damage their self-­esteem. Dove research shows 8 out of 10 women encounter negative comments on social media that critique women’s looks. With this in mind, Dove set out to overturn the pervasive online negativity and embarked on a partnership with Twitter to encourage women to #SpeakBeautiful and turn ugly tweets into beautiful, positive ones. Launching the campaign on Hollywood’s biggest night when online negativity was at its worst, Dove developed a truly unique campaign that leveraged primary research and insights, advocacy partnerships and deep influencer engagement, setting out to help shape the way future generations express themselves online. Since launch, Dove has continued to reach thousands of women and girls with #SpeakBeautiful, truly making social media a more positive place for all.

During Saturday morning’s keynote, therapist and life-­coach, Christine Gutierrez, will explore the journey to finding inner confidence and building self-­esteem in various aspects of our lives – from our careers, being mothers, how we feel about our bodies and how we translate our confidence to the world. After the keynote address, Christine will lead a panel featuring Dove Self­-Esteem Experts, Dania Peguero and Rosie Molinary, along with influential bloggers, Elayna Fernandez and Carolina Ortiz. Each panelist will provide their perspective on the importance of speaking positively and offering solutions for how we can all ignite positive change online and in the world.

Dove #SpeakBeautiful Workshop

Dove Self-­Esteem Educators, Rosie Molinary and Dania Peguero, will lead an inspiring workshop for 50 girls from the local Boys & Girls Club in Long Beach, CA.

The workshop ties to the Dove #SpeakBeautiful campaign that encourages women and girls to realize the role our online words play in impacting our confidence and self-­esteem. Dove research shows 8 out of 10 women encounter negative comments on social media that critique women’s looks. Furthermore, women do not realize messages they post are contributing to negative mindsets and behavior about beauty online. Only 9% of women admit to posting negative comments on social media.

How can we help the next generation ignite positive change online? Dove invites #WeAllGrow attendees to join our workshop – to serve as mentors and to interact with girls from our partner organization. To date, Dove has reached 17 million girls globally. We look forward to working with you to impact more lives in our local communities.

Dove Silky Hair Dare #MujerDove

Oils are a miraculous, age-old beauty secret that are known to provide countless benefits to hair. However, one out of four women are unsure how to use oils on their hair and many have concerns it will leave it weighed down or looking greasy. The New Dove® Pure Care Dry Oil collection is designed to provide hair with nourishment and silkiness without weighing hair down. We asked six fabulous #LatinaBloggers to take the Dove® Silky Hair Dare, and here is what they had to say!silky-hair-dare

Living Mi Vida Loca

"I’ve been a Dove Pure Care Dry Oil products for months now. I have super frizzy hair and I need all the help I can get. Couple that with my ultra busy schedule and my need for a quick fix, well Dove Pure Care Dry Oil products just make sense" Kika-Collage

De Tacones y Más

"Vean en estas fotos tomadas en el centro de San José el brillo y manejabilidad de mi cabello mientras corría por la fuentes de la plaza central"


Curves and Chaos

"Maybe you should only read this post if you really want silky soft hair—just saying. Personally, I’m a big fan. I’m that one person who’s always touching and running their fingers through their hair. And I love testing out different products to see what will and won’t work"

"Por eso les presento la nueva lines de Dove® Pure Care Dry Oil. Una formula no grasosa que fomenta la sedosidad y el brillo para todo tipo de cabello. Me encanto el aroma tan rico. Te invito a que cuando vayas a la farmacia te atrevas a abrir la tapa y olerlo, se que te encantara"


A Love Affair with Fashion

In the shower, I use Dove's Dry Oil Shampoo and Conditioner. Both of these are infused with African Macadamia Oil and Coconut Oil. They nourish and condition the hair without making it feel greasy or heavy. Love the smell too! In the past, I've been skeptical of using products with oil because I was nervous that it would make my hair look too greasy. Thankfully though, that is not an issue with these products!



"La verdad es que pude sentir la diferencia en un par de días, y fui feliz porque mi melena lució de 10 en la gala a la que asistí en Washington"
