Glossier Body Hero Campaign Drives Glowing Results


Skin first, makeup second is the mission behind new-to-the-scenes beauty company Glossier, whose ethos is centered on “creating the new essentials: easy-to-use skincare and makeup that form the backbone to your unique beauty routine.” [1] The company’s most recent product launch, Body Hero, promises the same “glowy, dewy” skin [2] customers achieve with the use of their facial moisturizers and primers – only for the rest of the body.


Their campaign’s challenge: How should the beauty company present a product you can’t directly see the benefit of, like previous campaigns did with cult favorites Boy Brow, “THE” brow product, or Generation G, a matte lipstick that oft appears on the lips of celebrities who strut the red carpet?

Turns out, a little shock (and sex) appeal does the trick – not to mention the brand’s signature “millennial-pink” packaging. The campaign behind Body Hero showcases five women of ranging body type and ethnicity. Consistent only next to the confidence of these women is their decidedly dazzling skin, no doubt influenced in part by the skincare, which is sold as a set, or individually as a daily oil wash or daily perfecting cream.  The orange blossom and neroli blend wash is featured on “model Paloma Elsesser, retired basketball player and Olympic Gold medalist Swin Cash Canal, Trialspark clinical research coordinator and influencer Mekdes Mersha, LPA clothing brand creative director Lara Pia Arrobio and Tyler Haney, founder of sportswear brand Outdoor Voices.” [3]

The inclusive campaign, created by Glossier without the help of outside agencies, drove a strong message of body positivity for anyone who dared to lather up. The message was received loud and  clear – any body (literally) who heroically decides to use the newest product designed and developed by the ingénue behind the brand, Emily Weiss. Major publications like Vogue, Refinery29 and Cosmopolitan covered not only the product launch, but the campaign behind it.

The Cut stated that Glossier’s “other area of expertise is marketing” when referencing Body Hero’s memorable marketing campaign, writing “the oil wash is amazing — but so is the brand’s knack for getting everyone talking” in a blog post, who drove an affiliate link to the new product, with a not-so-subtle CTA directing readers to “Buy.” [4] The campaign has us sold – we’ve set Body Hero to deliver our dewy skin on a bimonthly basis, thanks in part to Glossier’s never-run-out service shipping.






Common sense.

“I think what’s happening is that we have a generation with a fairly good grasp on exactly how much loyalty most employers have to their employees (none), and who aren’t willing to sacrifice personal advantages for non-reciprocated loyalty. All people should be so sensible.”

is job-hopping still a bad thing?

Plan B

“For a guy who was tired enough of his real estate business to mount a run for president, there’s a more suitable prize out there than 1600 Pennsylvania Ave—a media company catering to the massive minority of angry Americans who find delight in Trump’s elite lifestyle and populist rhetoric.”

The sad reality.

“This is the sad reality in workplaces around the world: Women help more but benefit less from it. In keeping with deeply held gender stereotypes, we expect men to be ambitious and results-oriented, and women to be nurturing and communal. When a man offers to help, we shower him with praise and rewards. But when a woman helps, we feel less indebted. She’s communal, right? She wants to be a team player. The reverse is also true. When a woman declines to help a colleague, people like her less and her career suffers. But when a man says no, he faces no backlash. A man who doesn’t help is “busy”; a woman is “selfish.””
