As part of the partnership, Schick and Skintimate are introducing the Rock Your Legs campaign – an integrated program that incorporates an original "Ready, Shave, Shine" music video, limited edition product in-store, an Aca-battle sweepstakes, movie trivia game, and in-film product placement as the new Schick Hydro Silk® TrimStyle® makes its movie debut. Schick and Skintimate are also partnering with Pitch Perfect 2 star Brittany Snow to help introduce a three-step leg care routine that helps women think about leg care as more than just hair removal, but as a beauty ritual.
"Pitch Perfect 2 doesn't just highlight great legs, it showcases the great work that comes when women work together," says Charlie King, Director of Schick and Skintimate brands, Energizer Personal Care. "We are thrilled to partner Universal Pictures' Pitch Perfect 2 to celebrate the steps women take each day to rock their legs with confidence and beauty."
Ready, Shave, Shine!
The rallying cry "Ready, Shave, Shine!" is about giving women the confidence to rock their day by making them feel good about the legs they stand on. Schick and Skintimate offer at-home tools to help personalize a beauty routine that reflects every woman's individual style and empowers her to feel confident and beautiful in her own skin.
"Leg care is not just about hair removal, it's about caring for your legs and bikini area as part of an overall beauty routine," says Camilla Medeiros, Senior Brand Manager, Women's Shave, Energizer Personal Care. "Legs are such a vital part of your body and they deserve to be treated with the same care as a woman's face and hair. The core of the Rock Your Legs campaign is about introducing women to a personalized three-step leg care ritual. So, no matter what she stands for, Schick and Skintimate can help her stand confidently on great legs."
The three steps to confident, beautiful legs are:
- One – Ready: First, apply a moisturizing shave gel,
- Two – Shave: Use a razor that fits your unique needs,
- Three – Shine: Show off your legs with confidence, whether you use a luxurious moisturizer after the shower or accessorize them with a great pair of heels.
Actress Brittany Snow agrees that a leg care routine is important. "Taking care of my legs is a part of my everyday healthy body regime," says Brittany Snow, actress and star of Pitch Perfect 2. "I'm excited to partner with Schick and Skintimate to encourage women to rock their own legs and celebrate independent, confident women, as that is something I try to accomplish every day."
