Long-standing client, Karo Pharma, briefed the team at Trinity PR to maintain media momentum for Footner Exfoliating Socks, the hero product in its footcare portfolio. Following editorial success the previous year on the theme of lockdown DIY pedicures, the Client wanted to achieve “cult beauty” status, as well as causing a ripple effect with increased consumer coverage for “sister brand” CCS Footcare Cream
A creative and stylish sampling gift pack for health & beauty journalists called Love Your Feet including product samples of Footner, CCS Footcare Cream, a personalised rose-gold mini-manicure set and breathable nail polish and James Read Tanning Mist.
