“We are delighted with the selection of Charnee as the winner,” stated Tricia Green, Senior Brand Manager at Valeant Pharmaceuticals. “She was selected by a combination of viewers who voted in the online contest, and a panel of judges in the beauty and skincare fields. All applicants were evaluated based on appearance and how well they represent the look of the AMBI brand.
