Seen+Noted: Master Facial Scrub asks “Do you know where that soap was used?” via new Ogilvy Philippines print campaign
For years, Master – a Filipino skin care brand from Unilever – has been communicating the need for men to wash their faces with a product specifically made for it, like Master Facial Scrub.
However, most Filipino men don’t see the need for facial scrub, and simply wash their faces with a bar of soap. This is because a majority of Philippine homes have only one bathroom, and men just use whatever is in it – like the bar of soap that the rest of the family uses.
So, to convince men to use Master Facial Scrub, Ogilvy Philippines released a poster series that asked, “Do you know where that soap was used?”
The posters show the striking image of two men sharing a bar of soap. This suggests the need for facial scrub by comically showing where the bar of soap could have been – like dad’s armpit, their brother’s hairy back, or grandpa’s foot.
“It’s a creative way to bring the brand’s benefit to life – with the perfect mix of a unique local insight, strategic thinking, and a bold execution”, says Paolo David, Marketing Director at Unilever Philippines.
The campaign was one of only three entries from The Philippines to win a Wood Pencil at the recent D&AD Awards.
