OK - One More Thing.
This is not an optical illusion. On the left, a bar of Dove Energizante! soap from Costa Rica. On the right, a bar of Dove Energizing! soap from Oregon.
Is this because our average height and body mass has been studied, and Oregonians are bigger than Costa Ricans? Is it a way of getting Costa Ricans to pay the same price for less product, since they don't have Costco on every corner?
One is 90 grams, one is 120 grams. It is a strange remnant in my bathroom cabinet - three bars left over of the demure, paler, 90 gram Costa Rican Dove soap.
