Results and Effectiveness
We generated lot of WOM among magazines readers; women were very surprised while taking the entire execution very seriously. The impact was effective – they read the entire handwritten message. Word of mouth was very powerful, and our campaign team noticed women spending more time in front of mirrors around Romania and talking about their health with friends.

Creative Execution
We wanted women to experience our campaign message. Therefore in women’s magazines, we made a special execution that looked like a “sample” of a beauty product. The fake sample was branded with our message, which read: “Product for maintaining the beauty of the breasts. Really beautiful breasts in just 5 minutes”. Inside of the fake sample, instead of a breast lotion women discovered a handwritten note about breast self-examination.

Insights, Strategy & the Idea
You spend 20 or 30 minutes a day in front of the mirror, to make sure you are beautiful. Stay a while. Spend another five minutes to check that you are healthy, too. That was our message this year, and it was one of our most successful to date. We’ve been working on behalf of Avon to raise breast cancer awareness for many years, and we have a deep understanding of women’s lifestyles and psychology. But we are committed to continually coming up with new and clever ways to get the message out. Too many women do not examine their breasts for lumps, even though they spend plenty of time worrying about how firm or how large they are. This year, we wanted to be inside their heads when they were in front of the mirror, so that they would make self-examination part of their beauty routine.
