We have now used Jean's expertise twice and both times have been impressed by her professionalism, skill and engagement with the beauty journalist community. The link between flirting and beautiful skin has been established as a strong hook and has given us tangible results in the form of editorial column inches for Johnson's Adult. No doubt we will be working with Jean in the future! Katharine L, Johnson & Johnson
