by | Jun 6, 2023 | Cover Star

The actress and WH cover star was revealed as the L’Oreal Brand Ambassador for Sub-Saharan Africa at Cannes Film Festival.

The new face of L’Oréal Paris Sub-Saharan Africa

Let’s be honest: Thuso Mbedu has glowing skin that just seems to radiate goodness. Per The Cut, her skincare is bare-bones, exactly what she needs and no more, but it works! She guzzles water, too, and it shows. So it makes sense that she’s been chosen as the new face of L’Oreal Paris, an iconic brand.

As L’Oréal Paris‘ brand ambassador and spokesperson for Sub-Saharan Africa, Mbedu will bring her unique perspective to local advertising campaigns, product launches, and public appearances. Her passion for beauty and ability to connect with audiences will play a pivotal role in enhancing our brand’s relationship with our valued customers.

“Growing up, one never saw oneself as beautiful – I could never have imagined that one day I would have the honour of being L’Oréal Paris’ first Sub-Saharan African spokesperson. A brand that stands for women’s empowerment, with a strong sense of diversity, sisterhood, and feminism. So far, I’ve enjoyed learning about the innovative technology behind L’Oréal’s product range and the ground-breaking strides made in understanding African skin. Their products are amazing, and I’m thrilled to be representing my African community within this incredible global brand.”
