Right product choice on the basis of a solid and reliable skin analysis.
Right product choice on the basis of reliable skin analysis, thus changing selling to consulting. See how we managed this challenge.
The La Roche-Posay Team was searching for a way to guide their consumers to the right product choice out of their skincare range. They also needed a highly engaging solution which, on one hand, educated consumers, and on the other hand, could also be used by beauty advisors in-store.
USP Solutions’ main aim was to turn La Roche-Posay’s expectations into a highly engaging activation tool that fueled consumer excitement. Achieving this was made possible through educating the consumer about their skin type and allowing them to experience the brand through a haptic approach.
After receiving prototypes that varied in size and shape from USP Solutions the La Roche-Posay team agreed the Skin Type Tester was the suitable technology match for this activation.
As soon as both sides had a clear picture of how the sensory marketing tools would be used in the activation, USP took on the next steps – artwork creation, printing, and on-time delivery.
The USP Skin Type Test enables consumers to understand their skin’s sebum level, giving them a moment of truth. The strip reacts to sebum on the skin by displaying dark dots, allowing the consumer to determine their individual skin type. Knowing whether she/he has dry, normal, combination or oily skin, combined with the in-store consultants’ product recommendations, consumers felt at ease in choosing the matching product from the series for their needs.
