Roloxin has its sights set on lifting skin in an instant.
Manufactured by Demarché Labs, a product-development company founded in 2013, Roloxin Lift is a product that is designed to brighten, smooth and illuminate skin on the spot and is said to last for 12 hours.
“[Roloxin Lift] works in tandem with any product,” said Jonah Shacknai, chief executive officer of Roloxin. “It’s not meant to change your routine, and it’s highly customizable.”
The patented technology, created by Technion, Israel Institute of Technology, resembles a piece of clay and is made up of silica particles. It is designed to be massaged into the face and left on for seven to 10 minutes, until dry. When the product turns into a white powder, it is signaling that the treatment is complete.
Shacknai said that there will be extensions of Roloxin Lift, for different areas of the body, in the future.
To market the product, Roloxin.com will include video tutorials for consumers, and salespeople will be educated on the product for in-store demos.
Roloxin, priced $110 for 10 treatments or $270 for 30 sachets, was launched at select Cos Bars on July 8 and will roll out to Ron Robinson and select Space NK doors in August.
“For a new brand, Roloxin Lift has sustainability and legs,” said Lily Garfield, founder and president of Cos Bar. “Customers are testing it and buying it — some have already come back to purchase more, since they see results so quickly. We test-marketed it in three stores, and already all of my other stores want it to sell.”
While executives declined comment on projected sales, industry sources estimated that Roloxin Lift would do about $15 million to $20 million at retail in the U.S. during its first year on counter.

Not only does #TheProfit return to CNBC tonight, but @marcuslemonis has launched @shopmarcus, a new shopping and lifestyle retail experience in Aspen and Chicago, with more locations to come. The retail stores offer in-store stylists and a variety of contemporary womenswear selections.
“It’s life, I’m going to face it,” @mingxi11 sighed. “I fell, but you know, I think the most important thing is that I get back up. I had the love, the help from my sister — the girl next to me Gizele [Oliveira] — she’s so nice. When I went backstage everybody was trying to comfort me like ‘Oh Ming, it’s OK.’ I’m really, really touched. I think it’s them who gave me the courage to go back on stage for the finale,” Xi told WWD of her fall at the @victoriassecret fashion show.

@louisvuitton tapped @therealpeterlindbergh for its latest city-centric photo book, which is part of a series called Fashion Eye. The primarily black and white book captures the spirit of Berlin in 57 images shot between 1989 and 2019. “Berlin is an inspiration for me, more than a city. I mean @millajovovich is simply Berlin!” said Lindbergh. #wwdfashion
“You know, I think audiences expect a certain performance so I have to deliver to them what they’re expecting to a certain degree. But I’m also a different actor and a different person, I have my own spin on the character,” says @noahegalvin of his takeover of the leading role in “Dear Evan Hansen” following the departure of @bensplatt, who originated the role.

“I just wanted to create this fully rounded character, but I do think what excited me most was just the opportunity to give a group of people representation that I feel needs it. I like to do characters in projects that stand for something and Karolina definitely does, so that was really exciting to me,” @ginnygardner says of her new role in @hulu’s “The Runaways.” Gardner plays Karolina Dean, a queer superhero, which is a rarity for @marvel.
