The challenge

Clean & Clear looked to Snapchat to help raise awareness of its Morning Burst facial cleanser among females age 13 to 24. Clean & Clear wanted to create ads in a few different formats to engage Snapchatters in a variety of ways — a video ad to tell a story in motion, a written segment to offer tips, and an interactive ad that would inspire viewers to get creative.

The solution

Clean & Clear launched its Filters over high schools and college campuses to give its audience a way to frame their selfies and send them to friends. Sparkling bubbles and the positive message “Face so Fresh” resonated well with Snapchatters. Additionally, the creative’s Clean & Clear logo helped increase Brand Awareness among Snapchatters who both used or received the Filter.

Clean & Clear partnered with Snapchat to run animated Snap Ads that reached the right people at the right time. Clean & Clear used Snapchat’s Lifestyle Categories to optimize its Snap Ads between Stories campaign and reach Snapchatters more likely to be interested in beauty. The bright, happy creative featured the Morning Burst face wash, encouraging Snapchatters to “Wake up tired skin.”

Clean & Clear ran a Snap Ads Articles campaign across Discover, as well as a takeover of Refinery 29’s Publisher Story to reach its intended audience. When Snapchatters saw Clean and Clear’s Top Snap, which read “Does your skin feel blah in the morning?”, they could swipe up to read helpful articles on proper skin care.

The results

• +40.2m total Views
• 9% increase in Brand Awareness Among Female Snapchatters 13 to 24
• +16% increase in Brand Awareness from the Geofilter

Clean & Clear’s Snap Ads and Filters campaign generated an 11.2% lift in Aided Awareness (5.5X higher than Millward Brown Norms) and a 7% lift in brand favorability (3.5X higher than Millward Brown Mobile Norms).
