  • The expandable ad began by asking users if dull and damaged skin affected their confidence, and if they wanted to repair it with 30X power of Vitamin C, accompanied by the visual of a woman's face with skin issues.

  • Users were prompted to draw a circle using their phones, which transformed into a healing aura around a woman's face, symbolizing skin rejuvenation.

  • The bright circle then morphed into a lemon slice, highlighting the product's key ingredient.

  • The campaign concluded with the brand's visuals, product shots, taglines, USPs, and CTA: BUY NOW that guided users to learn more or make purchases on the landing page.

In a world where smartphone screens illuminate our lives, we wanted to seize the mobile canvas to promote our Bright Complete Serum range. With mCanvas, we created an immersive experience, woven around the 'sun-like slice of lemon' - an integral part of our key visual, while highlighting the primary ingredient: Vitamin C. The draw in the air action, detected with gyroscope & accelerometer sensors, amplified high recall for our serum and kept users engaged for 10 seconds on average. The interactive ad effectively drove our message of breathing new life into one's skin to get radiant, healthy, and glowing complexion with Garnier serums.
