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.

Clarin’s Beauty Flash Balm
Guerlain’s Midnight Secret
Guerlain’s Terracotta Bronzing Powder
Kiehl’s Creme de Corps
Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil

Jurlique Hand Cream
Yves Saint Laurent Falsh Lash Effect Mascara
Yves Saint Laurent Touche EclatDermalogica Multivitamin Recovery Face Mask
Estee Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair
Lancome Oscillation Mascara
Elizabeth Arden Eight-Hour Cream
Bare Minerals SPF15 Foundation
