Marilyn Monroe’s Beauty Essentials

I came across an article about Marilyn Monroe in my latest issue of Allure and it shared some of her favorite beauty products. I was so intrigued to know what this beauty icon used to achieve her luminous skin and overall banging sex appeal that I figured there are more people out there who would be just as curious. Here are some of the items Marilyn swore by that are still sold today:


Nivea Creme


Marilyn used both Nivea cream and Vaseline to make her skin glow under the bright studio lights

Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil

Elizabeth Arden 8-Hour Cream

Erno Laszlo Active Phelityl Cream


Chanel No. 5 Perfume

Marilyn reportedly took ice baths that had drops of No. 5 in it

Yardley English Lavender Perfume


Elizabeth Arden Smoky Eyes Powder Pencil in Espresso

Helena Rubenstein Long Lash Mascara

      • Yes I think it is, but I’ve heard they are great on all skin types. My friend from Greece uses one & says it’s her secret to her perfect skin. I’m going to try!

Thanks for your feedback, gorgeous!
