Schick® and Skintimate® encourage women to “Ready, Shave, Shine” in a new music video that celebrates the legs that women rock, starring “real life” emojis!
PR Newswire, SHELTON, CT, APRIL 6, 2016
Schick® and Skintimate® have enlisted the help of the most talked-about icons in pop culture today – emojis! – to help women rethink how they care for their legs with a simple routine: Ready, Shave, Shine! As part of the second year of the Rock Your Legs campaign, Schick® and Skintimate® created emojis – and even gave some of them legs! – to represent the Schick Hydro Silk®, Schick® Intuition® and Schick® Quattro for Women® Razors and Skintimate® Shave Gel brands and personified them in a new music video to celebrate the steps women take to rock their legs.
“We couldn’t think of a more exciting, or relevant, partner today than emojis,” says Dan Kinton, Group Marketing Director, Women’s Systems and Skintimate, Edgewell Personal Care. “Emoji use is continuing to increase every day, especially among millennial women. This insight gave us an opportunity to engage women in a fun and playful way in order to drive the importance of a healthy leg care routine.”
The Schick® and Skintimate® original “Rock Your Legs” music video can currently be seen at YouTube.com/RockYourLegs and makes its debut in movie theaters across the country throughout the month of May.
Introducing: Schick® & Skintimate® Emojis
The Schick® and Skintimate® emojis show the different ways women can rock their legs by embodying Schick® and Skintimate® product benefits. Specifically, in the video, they act as not fairy, but “emoji godmothers” who sing an original song that educates women about the three-step leg care routine: Ready, Shave, Shine! The four emojis and their brand inspirations are:
- Pink Sweater – Skintimate® Shave Gel: Radiant, healthy, beautiful legs call for unshakable confidence. Our Pink Sweater Girl is always prepared to rock her legs.
- Red Dress – Hydro Silk® Razor: Water-activated moisturizing serum in Hydro Silk hydrates* your skin longer than any other razor leaving your skin as silky as the dress our Red Dress Girl wears to dance all night long.
- The Twins – Intuition®Razor: Effortless, simplified and caring, Schick® Intuition® with shave cream right on the razor is the simple way to get smooth, beautiful legs. So simple, our Twins have time for twice the fun.
- The Runner– Quattro for Women®: Liberating, active performance, Quattro for Women® disposable razors provide an incredibly close and comfortable shave so smooth that you can skip a day or two, so she’s always prepared no matter what fun the day or night throws at her.
Ready, Shave, Shine!
The rallying cry “Ready, Shave, Shine!” aims to encourage women to pay as close attention to their leg care routine as they do their hair or face routines. Schick® and Skintimate® offer at-home tools to help personalize a beauty routine that reflects every woman’s individual style and empowers her to feel confident and beautiful in her own skin.
Dr. Annie Chiu, partner dermatologist for Schick® and Skintimate® says, “Healthy, beautiful legs can make you feel powerful and confident, so they deserve more than just basic shaving – they deserve a personalized beauty routine. From total leg care to the hair-down-there, Schick® and Skintimate® give women great products to help create a custom leg care routine, and I’m excited to be part of the Rock Your Legs campaign to encourage women to show off their legs with confidence!”
The three steps to confident, beautiful legs are:
- Ready: First, apply a moisturizing shave gel like Skintimate®
- Shave: Use a Schick® Women’s razor that fits your unique needs
- Shine: Show off your legs with confidence, whether you use a luxurious moisturizer after the shower or rock a killer outfit that accentuates your gorgeous gams!
Now Schick® and Skintimate® are making it easier than ever for women to rock their legs like our favorite emojis at home! Beginning in April 2016, limited edition Rock Your Legs packaging will be available in stores nationwide in select variants for the following products:
- Skintimate® Shave Gel: Nourish and protect your legs with our gel that foams into a rich lather helping you never miss a spot.
