City Pulse

By Tallulah Dumonde


Legendary skincare leader, Erno Laszlo, had many legendary followers including icon, Marilyn Monroe. Marilyn was part of Dr. Laszlo’s elite clientele before she died. Laszlo’s Active pHelityl Cream was found on her bedside table at her untimely death.

In June 2005, 43 years after Marilyn’s death, her estate was auctioned to the public. The Monroe estate included 32 of Marilyn’s Erno Laszlo products.

Marilyn’s beloved Erno Laszlo collection will be on display at Bergorf Goodman. The skincare products that kept this beauty forever youthful, including pHelitone cream; a skin paste; a face powder; and an Active pHelityl cream with the box which has a notation “for:scar” on it, will be encased for viewing from January 14th-27th.
