Date:11/9/2009

NEW YORK, Nov. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- MISSION Skincare®, the innovative skincare company founded by tennis star Serena Williams, soccer professional Mia Hamm, and other world class athletes, will be launching "Active Lifestyle Skincare Destinations" in the beauty aisle of more than 5,000 CVS/pharmacy locations across the country beginning this week. Stocked with innovative lip, face, body and sun care products, MISSION and CVS/pharmacy have set out to establish the latest category in the marketplace - "Active Lifestyles" - designed specifically for consumers who live an active and healthy lifestyle.

To celebrate the partnership, MISSION will be launching six new products - Revitalizing Lip Therapy Gel in Peppermint, Mega Balm Antioxidant Lip Refreshers in Blueberry-Pomegranate and Acai-Lemonade, Replenishing Hand + Body Moisturizer and Rejuvenating Face Moisturizer. The nourishing skincare and lip care products featuring vitamins and antioxidants will be available exclusively in the "Active Lifestyle Skincare Destinations" at CVS/pharmacy starting in November.

As seen on the TODAY SHOW this morning (http://www.missionskincare.com/news.html), MISSION co-founder Serena Williams, who will be honored this evening as one of GLAMOUR Magazine's 2009 "Women of the Year", said she is "extremely excited to be working with CVS/pharmacy to launch this new skincare destination, because people who exercise regularly as part of a healthy lifestyle often overlook the fact that they have different skincare needs."

"Our customers are smart, savvy and constantly on the go. Whether they're out for a run, chasing their kids around the house or cheering from the sidelines - they're in motion," said Mike Bloom, Senior Vice President of Merchandising at CVS/pharmacy. "And with healthy living comes the need for skincare that meets your active needs. That's where MISSION Skincare steps in with products developed and tested by the world's greatest athletes for use by everyday people on the go."

"When we started the company, we knew there was a huge opportunity to establish a new standard in skincare for the active lifestyle," adds Mia Hamm, Professional Soccer player and Co-Founder of MISSION Skincare. "Products that help moms, dads and kids of all skin types, all ethnicities and all levels of athletic activity have been missing in the marketplace - until now. Having the opportunity to work with CVS/pharmacy to bring our skincare innovations to 'soccer moms' and families across the US is a huge opportunity for our company."

MISSION Skincare is available at the new "Active Lifestyle Skincare Destinations" within CVS/pharmacy stores, as well as on www.cvs.com.
