About Marlene

Marlene Wallach

Referred to as the arbiter of all things beauty, Marlene explains how Gleem Beauty got its start: 

"When I was at Wilhelmina Modeling Agency and I saw my gorgeous models on the Runway and in ads, they seemed so confident.  The thing is, when they were at the agency with no makeup, with their natural blemishes and marks revealed, their self-esteem suddenly dropped. 

One day, one of these models came to me for a product recommendation saying that nothing was helping her skin.  The simple answer was – to develop products that I could certify would help.  From that moment on, I was driven to learn about skin, products, and what was most effective to achieve healthy, radiant skin.

Marlene’s first step was to get certifications in esthetics, acne-care and LED Light Therapy. She then spent time working in a MedSpa to learn first-hand about the care process. At the same time she was researching the most up-to-date skincare science and formulations along with seasoned medical professionals. Next, Gleem Beauty was born.

Male and female, different ages, different problems – we all have skin in the game. With Gleem Beauty, everyone has a chance to shine through and through."

Marlene Wallach is the founder of Gleem Beauty.  She is also the founder of Wilhelmina Kids & Teens and Wilhelmina Creative Management where she was president for nearly two decades. She is a nationally recognized arbiter of all things’ beauty, an author, and an empowering educator.  Marlene brings together a career of knowledge from within the beauty industry and working tirelessly with models and their skin concerns.
