LOS ANGELES — In celebration of its newly launched acne-fighting skin care line at Duane Reade, HappyMe Skincare is throwing a bon voyage bash for blemishes during the week of April 11 to 15 at select Duane Reade locations throughout New York.
To bid farewell to pimples, the "HappyMe Going Away Party for Pimples" will offer attendees a free consultation with an esthetician, plus HappyMe samples. HappyMe also is giving away an iPad to one sweepstakes winner.
"This event is the perfect opportunity to showcase the new product line to the public," HappyMe spokesman Jeff Schroeder said. "The company's passion and knowledge for skin care has led us to create products that don't just deliver smooth, vibrant skin; they [also] create an experience with their products. HappyMe is so confident in the product they've produced, they want individuals to have the opportunity to feel it, smell it and experience it free at the Duane Reade celebration."
HappyMe targets acne-causing bacteria with natural ingredients like willow bark and olive leaf extracts, and nourishes skin with naturally healing lavender oil and other essential oils. HappyMe Skincare is free of harsh chemicals, parabens, sulfates, and artificial dyes and fragrances.
"Duane Reade is the pharmacy and drug store of New York. With hundreds of locations on the East Coast, it is the perfect retailer to launch the HappyMe Skincare line," Schroeder added. "For those hoping to improve the quality of their skin, HappyMe's Going Away Party for Pimples will definitely be an educational opportunity, but more than anything, the event will be fun and full of surprises and samples."
