Even in death her signature style and glamorous flair warms our hearts and leaves us with many unanswered questions. Although she was definitely gone too soon, she had a timeless taste in fashion and beauty that we still aspire to today. Marilyn entrusted her beauty regime to a select few brands who maintained her silver screen worthy skin. The August issue of Allure magazine pays tribute to this amazing woman through gorgeous photographs through memory lane and an inside scoop on what products transformed Norma Jean into Marilyn. A couple of her go to favorites were by Erno Laszlo, one even found on her nightstand at the time of her death.

 

Dr. Erno Laszlo treated Marilyn's skin throughout her career, even going to the lengths of creating a custom made product, Phormula 3-9, to fade a scar on her stomach. Filled with tamaru and marine collagen extract, this intensive nourishing balm reduces redness, puffiness and smoothes away wounds and burns. 

  

Erno Laszlo's Active Phelityl Cream is an intensive moisturizer that protects and nourishes the skin for a full 24 hours. It's no wonder Marilyn would put this cream on before she went to bed and left it as a reminder on her nightstand. Safflower seed oil improves skin's elasticity and a unique moisturizing complex with a PH nearly identical to the skin helps to maintain the fatty acids for essential skin function.
