NEW YORK — Another dermatologist skin care line is hitting the market, and claims it’s taking a different approach. Ellen Gendler, a dermatologist in private practice in New York City has developed Dr. Gendler’s Skin Appointments in response to her patients’ frequently asked questions.
According to Gendler, the products were created to be simple, easy-to-understand and suitable for a wide range of skin types. "I came out with products that were the kind my patients ask for," she noted, adding that the products are for "basic problems that everyone deals with."
Skin Appointments is comprised of nine stockkeeping units. They are: Skin Toner, recommended for oily skin and heavy makeup wearers, $25 for a 7.5-oz. bottle; Simply Clean Facial Wash, a mild wash for all skin types, $25 for a 7.5-oz. bottle; Optimal Body Lotion, formulated to be healing and preventative for all skin types, $30 for 7.5 oz.; Foot Recovery Cream, a highly emollient, nongreasy cream, $30 for a 2-oz. jar; Oil-Absorbing Treatment, which contains acrylic polymer to bind oil and mattify skin, $50 for 0.9 oz.; Lip Coat, a light gloss, $15 for a 0.35-oz. pot; Helping Hands, a greaseless, absorbent moisturizer, $30 for a 3-oz. tube; Eye Assist, a gentle cream, $25 for 0.4 oz., and Simply Moisture Facial Moisturizer, a gel-like formulation that contains silicone, $50 for a 2-oz. jar.
While Dr. Gendler would not comment on projected sales, industry sources estimated that the line would do about $2 million in its first year on counter.
Gendler says her mission is to make quality skin care affordable and accessible to consumers. The products will be available beginning at the end of April in select Lord & Taylor stores and independent pharmacies nationwide. While advertising is not planned, the line will be supported by in-store appearances by Dr. Gendler and direct mail. Another priority was not to create products that make impossible claims. "I could never make products that don’t do what they are supposed to," Gendler said. New products are currently in development, as well as plans to expand distribution.

Spotted last night at the @erdem x @hm launch event: Kate Bosworth, Rashida Jones, Kirsten Dunst and Selma Blair. The party, which took place in LA, also marked the opening of their pop-up shop. “I was interested in creating a collection that wasn’t in any way disposable. It was about pieces you’d create and keep forever, things that have a permanence to it,” designer Erdem Moralioglu said. #wwdeye (📷: Katie Jones)
Renee Zellweger in yellow in 2001 and again in 2017. Chosen as one of the 12 @pantone Leading Spring Colors (and dubbed “Meadowlark”), it only makes sense that the bright hue stands the test of time and is making a resurgence this season, seen already on stars like @blakelively and @gigihadid.

As one of the most recognizable models in the world, Christy Turlington Burns has an insider’s view of the fashion industry and the allegations of sexual harassment swirling around it. “I can say that harassment and mistreatment have always been widely known and tolerated in the industry. The industry is surrounded by predators who thrive on the constant rejection and loneliness so many of us have experiences at some point in our careers,” Turlington told WWD, along with her suggestions for how the modeling world should protect younger women and men.

24-year-old Jean Prounis is redefining the rules of jewelry. Formerly a studio assistant to Jemima Kirke and a design apprentice at Ghuran, she focuses on handcrafted subtleties and ancient goldsmithing techniques. “There was a really sterile feel in the environment and I wanted to have jewelry with character that shapes how you wear it everyday,” Prounis said. Each piece is hand made in New York, either by Prounis or three other jewelers in the district. #wwdfashion
