Credits & Description

A lot of women find hair removal using an electric epilator painful and many use alternative hair removal techniques that are known to be less painful but, unfortunately, also less effective. Thanks to its expertise and 5 years of research, Calor has launched the world’s 1st painless electric epilator. Based on unique technology that combines a desensitising function that stops the pain signal, and a refreshing function that soothes the skin, Soft Extreme is establishing itself as the painless solution for soft skin.
In order to prove to our target audience that Soft Extreme hair removal really doesn’t hurt, Calor is beginning its promotion and launching the “Sourires de femmes” campaign. Based on the idea that when a person is in pain, it shows on their face, Calor and Publicis Conseil have designed an original concept: turning a photo shoot into a real product torture test.
Using Calor’s fanpage, women were invited to have their faces photographed by leading French fashion photographer, Kate Barry, all whilst having hair removed from their legs using the Soft Extreme epilator.
