What we did: 

To launch theBalm Cosmetics into the New Zealand market in November 2016, we sent x40 KOLs, media, and bloggers personalized gift boxes that reflected theBalm’s fun and flirty packaging. The custom boxes mimicked the look of theBalm’s ‘Autobalm Palette’ and featured the recipient’s name and image. Inside was a ‘Nude Dude’ advent calendar with chocolate, product, marketing materials and a cute pineapple USB stick with product imagery.
