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.
“What he has done at Vuitton is really exceptional,” said @gameofthrones’ actress Gwendoline Christie on @mrkimjones’ final show for @louisvuitton. “He has rebooted luxury in terms of making it commercial, viable and contemporary. And most importantly artistic. He has never compromised his artistic vision for the sake of commodity.” (📷: @zefashioninsider)

“And so spending so much time with a character who thinks like that, inevitability you try and analyze yourself and go back and think about your own demons and dark chapters that you had in your life,” says @thedanielbruhl of his role in TNT’s “The Alienist.” The show, set in the Gilded Age of New York, also stars Dakota Fanning and Luke Evans.

According to @laurentsai, former “Terrace House: Aloha State” cast member, she didn’t know she was auditioning for the Japanese version of “Real World.” “I was telling a couple of my friends and someone’s like, ‘That sounds a lot like Terrace House.’ I was like, ’No it can’t be.’” Turns out, it was. But Tsai isn’t just a reality star — she’s an illustrator who has worked with Starbucks Japan and most recently, she’s dipping her toes into the fashion world.
