Never Too Busy for Beauty! timeRAZOR and Vichy Laboratories Make Sure Busy New Yorkers Don't Miss Out on Great Skin Care

Free Vichy Skin Beauty Events Available Exclusively Through timeRAZOR

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Apr 5, 2012) - Women everywhere get too busy for beauty, but tomorrow New Yorkers and visitors to the Big Apple can wave goodbye to their fear of missing out on good skin, thanks to Vichy (a French skincare brand part of the L'Oreal Group), DUANEreade, and timeRAZOR. Together, they've turned tomorrow, Friday, April 6, into a Free Beauty Day for people on-the-go!

Reserve your spot for these unique events exclusively through the free timeRAZOR app, which will guide people to 10 DUANEreade locations throughout Manhattan, where specially trained DUANEreade beauty advisors will offer a one-on-one skin analysis. After their consultation, each participant will take home a beauty bag and free, deluxe samples of the Vichy products recommended by the beauty advisor.

"At L'Oreal, getting our products on people is the best marketing," said Marc Speichert, CMO of L'Oreal USA. "timeRAZOR lets us do that in a unique way, for a hard-to-reach, but essential market -- busy people on-the-go. More than 80 percent of women aren't using the proper skin care regimen, but everyone has enough time to swing through and fix that. timeRAZOR will show them when and where it's most convenient, based on their existing plans."

Busy New Yorkers simply access the events by downloading timeRAZOR's free iPhone and Android apps. The timeRAZOR app then goes to work, using geo-location technology and its Massive Event Selection Engine to find cool things to do based on where the person is and where they plan to be throughout the day -- including these exclusive Beauty Day events.

It takes just four taps to get to the Free Vichy Skin Beauty Day event:

1. Tap to download the free app

"We're excited to kick off our exclusive event and experience program with a brand as influential and trusted as L'Oreal," said timeRAZOR Cofounder and Chief Experiential Officer, Carolyn Parent. "Skin care is a perfect example of something people know they should do, but can't find the time to do it right. timeRAZOR provides a convenient way for people on-the-go to discover great events like L'Oreal's Beauty Days close to where they live, work and plan to be."
