Blistex to reach over 11 million shoppers & 2.5 million online

London, 3rd February 2021: Blistex, a global leader in lip care and lip health, will this month begin their winter media campaign, the brand’s second significant campaign within the last 4 months. The company is investing in a multi-media communications campaign, which includes extensive online and ambient advertising, as well as further investment into working with Influencers across social media platforms.

The brand support coincides with Blistex Relief Cream being available at major multiple retailers in February including Sainsbury’s, Tesco and Superdrug.

The out of home advertising will feature both 6 and 48 sheet posters. The locations selected include high footfall pedestrianised shopping areas across the UK and sites with close proximity to selected retailers. The opportunity to see figure for the adverts is approx. 11 million.

Nikki Warner-Green, UK Marketing Manager, Blistex, said: “This is our second significant investment in mass media promotional activity over the past 4 months. Our on-going commitment to brand growth in the UK has been boosted by the return of Blistex Relief Cream. Retailers and consumers are welcoming its return”

The advertising creative communicates the unrivalled performance of Blistex Relief Cream, their most requested product. This iconic essential has been out-of-production for over a year, leaving many consumers desperate and unable to find a suitable alternative for cracked, chapped or sore lips. The passion of Blistex Relief Cream fans was evident on social media where, in the absence of this hugely popular product, a replacement product simply wouldn’t do.
