L’Oréal partners with China Duty Free Group for SkinCeuticals showcase in Hainan

CHINA. L’Oréal Travel Retail Asia Pacific recently hosted a SkinCeuticals Antioxidant Lab activation at the Sanya EDITION Hotel in Hainan, in association with China Duty Free Group. The laboratory-themed pop-up showcased the premium medi-cosmetic brand’s three signature serums: CE Ferulic, Phloretin CF and the newly-released Silymarin CF. It ran from 4 to 30 November.

Blending SkinCeuticals’ dermatological expertise with a range of engaging online and offline experiences, the pop-up entertained and educated travellers about the science-backed efficacy of the three hero serums.

L’Oréal Travel Retail Asia Pacific General Manager of Active Cosmetics and Professional Products Divisions Fran Law commented, “Consumers are increasingly knowledgeable and discerning when it comes to skincare. Now more than ever, they value products that are clinically-proven and backed by science.

“It is with pride that we launched SkinCeuticals’ first hotel takeover together with China Duty Free Group, which showcased our brand’s breakthrough formulations through such an immersive and consumer-centric journey.”

A giant CE Ferulic Serum bottle welcomed visitors at the entrance of the Antioxidant Lab. The journey began at the laboratory-inspired interactive wall, which helped visitors identify the right SkinCeuticals serum for their specific skin needs.

Three digital screen, representing the CE Ferulic, Phloretin CF and Silymarin CF, took visitors on an interactive digital journey through each formula’s specific skincare benefits

This was followed by three LED touchscreens, each one representing a SkinCeuticals serum, which enabled an interactive digital discovery journey that highlighted the efficacy of SkinCeuticals’ antioxidant formulations. The digital experience concluded with a QR code that linked to China Duty Free Group’s pre-order ecommerce platform.

A moving conveyor belt, which featured the three serums, was another highlight alongside a hands-on experience that visualised the effect of antioxidants on the skin. The pop-up also featured SkinScope, L’Oréal’s new Beauty Tech diagnostic tool, which assessed visitors’ skin to offer personalised skin consultations and regimen recommendations.
