What was the challenge?

The GARNIER team needed a tool to help prove their Garnier Intensive 7 day moisturizer’s claim. Furthermore, they needed a brand activation solution that was capable of truly engaging consumers and could be used on social media, in-store and also implemented in TV-commercials.

How did USP Solutions help?

The USP Solutions’ challenge was to translate Garnier’s needs to a brand activation tool that enabled consumers to touch and feel the brand, thus proving the product claim. The experts at USP Solutions knew that in order to create and support brand loyalty they had to find a way to engage the consumers’ senses.

USP Solutions developed prototypes, different in shape and size, which were sent to the Garnier marketing team for reviews and we proposed that the hydration test technology was the best technology match for this campaign.
Once it was decided how the haptic tester experience could be implemented in the campaign, USP took complete responsibility; from artwork creation to printing and on-time delivery.

How does the tester work?

The Hydration Test tool from USP Solutions enables consumers to understand their skin’s moisture level, giving them a moment of truth. The adhesive test area removes dead skin flakes from the skin’s surface. The more skin flakes removed, the drier the skin is. This knowledge let consumers realize their need for the GARNIER Intensive moisturizer and by taking the before and after test they were able to witness the proven claim directly.

How it works:

  • Press the black test area onto your elbow for 3 seconds.
  • Compare the test area with the result fields to identify your hydration level.
  • After using GARNIER Intensive Moisturizer for 7 days, test your hydration level again.
  • Compare the two test areas and see how effective GARNIER’s product worked.
