Clarins Case Study


Although Clarins is already a well-established brand, they were keen to increase their positive appeal and trust amongst consumers. They wanted to engage consumers through informative advertising to increase awareness and understanding of their products and positioning.


A range of Time Inc. UK titles created editorial around the health and science of radiant skin, including the foods and activities that also contribute to beauty and a perfect complexion. Working closely with Clarins, the aim was to increase the credibility of the brand and offer more than just a surface solution to consumers.



The multi platform campaign ran across multiple titles: Look, Marie Claire, InStylegoodtoknow and Women & Home. It included both display and native
executions. Social media and newsletters were also utilised.
