Clinique has appointed Ashley Brissette, MD, MSc, FRCSC, as the brand's first guiding ophthalmologist; she will educate consumers on the importance of eye safety, offer her ophthalmological expertise and guidance in the development of new products, and contribute to Clinique's educational content for consumers and consultants.
The brand's safety mission is upheld in Clinique's Eye Promise, which ensures that all eye makeup products are ophthalmologist-tested and safe for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers.
Brissette is an award-winning New York-based ophthalmologist specializing in ocular surface diseases and cataract and laser corrective surgery. She serves as a spokesperson for the American Academy of Ophthalmology and is an ophthalmologist for the New York Rangers NHL hockey team.
She will be featured in the campaign for Clinique's New High Impact High-Fi Full Volume Mascara launching this month.
