The Real Beauty "Hero" Products

David Walker Smith, Director of Beauty for London’s Selfridges Department Store, revealed the true beauty “hero” products to journalist and writer India Knight. These are the products that really deliver on their promises, and the number of familiar tried-and-tested names below reassure me that the ones I’ve never tried are definitely worth a go. Kiehl’s Creme de Corps was certainly the only thing that could get me through the harshness of winters in Switzerland without ending up rough and scaly!

In particular I’ve been looking for a new mascara for AGES, so am interested to try out the Lancome Oscillation Mascara – it seemed like such a gimicky idea (a vibrating mascara wand), but perhaps it really works.
