I am not going to beat around the bush, it's fantastic. My skin is glowing, pores are minimised and I am completely sold. You put it on instead of cleansing (although I wouldn't put it on top of make up) and it's a sort of coral gel. Then it foams up on your skin and turns white and bubbles. It's quite fun. You leave it on for 5 minutes and then rinse off.
I've used it twice since Monday (it says up to three times a week) and my skin really does look good. It is very expensive but you hardly need any so I think it will last a long time.

What has this to do with beauty? Well, I always read the magazine that comes with it. The first 6 pages or so are good. Mary Portas critiques a shop (surely a job that, by rights, should be mine?) and they have a Fashion & Beauty page. And to this I turned in my bath earlier to be confronted with two things I need.
First up, Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask. Described thus by the reviewer: "One of the hardest working masks I have used, this is rich in vitamin C and lightens, brightens and tightens skin after one application." Yup, I need it.
Then I read this... Givenchy Printed Lip Pens. "The perfect lip-dressing if you like statement colour without stand-out shine or sense of 'load' that lipstick can give." Got to love how beauty editors write haven't you? Oh, my lipstick is so loaded, what to do?! Anyway, I am intrigued and although my Chanel lipstick is still delivering the goods, I like to be alert for any must-have trends.
And now I don't feel so bad buying the Telegraph since I've shared this wisdom with you all as well.
