FORT WASHINGTON, PA (March 19, 2015) - The makers of ZYRTEC®, a leader in allergy relief, announced today an exclusive partnership with Gilt City, the online shopping destination offering its members access to exclusive local experiences at insider prices. This first-of-its-kind, on- and off-line partnership will equip female allergy sufferers with head-to-toe ALLERGY FACE® beauty solutions so they can look fabulous this spring allergy season.

A recent survey from the makers of ZYRTEC® revealed that 91 percent[1] of female allergy sufferers experience ALLERGY FACE® beauty challenges such as watery eyes, puffiness, and red nose. Beginning March 16, Gilt City will feature an exclusive online beauty collection at www.gilt.com/zyrtec, offering female allergy sufferers seasonal solutions including: step-by step guides to get Debra Messing's own look and other on-trend make-up looks designed by Jamie Greenberg, a video tutorial of beauty tips, Greenberg's must-haves for allergy season and exclusive beauty offers from Gilt City.

"As a celebrity makeup up artist, I often hear from my clients that allergies affect not just how they feel, but also how they look. And as a sufferer myself, I can certainly relate," said Greenberg. "That's why I'm continuing my partnership with the makers of ZYRTEC®. I want to show women that just like my celebrity clientele, they too can look fresh-faced and flawless even with ALLERGY FACE® beauty challenges."

"As a brand, we are excited to partner with Gilt City to offer a new and innovative way for our consumers to get solutions beyond the pill," said Colleen Sellers, Group Brand Director, Allergy. "We want to show up for our consumer where she is and Gilt City is definitely one of those places."

Consumers can experience the ALLERGY FACE® Beauty Counters first-hand at Gilt City Warehouse Sales in Miami (March 20-21), New York City (April 24-25) and Los Angeles (May 15-16).  Shoppers will receive personalized tips to solve beauty challenges caused by allergies from Greenberg in New York City and Los Angeles, and from Hispanic beauty and fashion expert Kika Rocha in Miami.  Additionally, attendees can shop designer clothing and accessories for women, men, kids and home at up to 80 percent off retail.

"I look forward to heading outdoors in the spring, but I don't want my allergies to hold me back.  I take ZYRTEC®, which helps me feel great so I can focus on the things that are important to me," said ZYRTEC® Brand spokesperson Debra Messing. "Whether I'm attending a red carpet event or simply spending a day in the park, I love that the makers of ZYRTEC® understand a woman's need to feel confident when she heads outside."
