Insights, Strategy & the Idea
Teens are constantly bombarded with skincare advertisements, especially in teen-focused publications. We wanted a more subtle and demonstrative way of communicating the benefits of the product to them. To achieve this, we co-wrote an article with a popular magazine that would have teen appeal. We then asked the magazine editor to remove all the dots within the article, and placed our ad in the bottom right of the article page.

Creative Execution
We asked a popular teen magazine to remove all the dots from an article to dramatize the benefits of Yardley’s Blackhead Solution.

Results and Effectiveness
