What was the 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, demonstrated product superiority.

How did USP Solutions help?

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 demonstrating the consumer the products great cleansing efficacy 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 that the Skin Type Tester and the Facial Residue Test were 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.

How does the tester work?

The USP Skin Type Test enables consumers to understand their skin’s sebum level, giving them a moment of truth.  The Facial Residue Test enables consumers to visualize the efficacy of the brands facial cleansing products.

How it works:

  • Moderately press one test strip onto your forehead.
  • As a next step cleanse your forehead with the product provided.
  • Take out the second test strip, and moderately press it onto your forehead, again.
  • Compare both test strips.
