Every new skincare product these days seems to be promoting the benefits of hyaluronic acid. Whilst it has a number of medical uses, and was patented in 1942 as a baking substitute for egg whites, when it comes to beauty products the main reasons for including hyaluronic acid are its alleged anti-ageing properties, and its ability to ensure skin is kept hydrated.
I became curious about Clarisonic skin cleansing systems after spotting their electronic brush type gadgets in a few different friends' bathrooms and wondered why precisely none of them had mentioned their newfound discoveries. Straight away, I knew it had to be good - REALLY good - for them to keep quiet.
In October, I bought a Clarisonic. I had walked out of an eyebrow appointment on Weybridge High Street, Space NK caught my eye, and I knew I had found my moment. A little early for a Christmas present for myself, but that's what I told myself it was, as I flung the door open and announced, for all to hear - "I need a Clarisonic".
