New for this year, the Alliance will co-stream together in smaller groups and share audiences at various times throughout the year. The Alliance will be talking about their shaving routines and personal style, as well as Gillette’s newest innovations and core products such as ProGlide, SkinGuard, and the recently launched US-based Planet KIND.
