- KEY INGREDIENTS
- Allantoin, Glycerin
With maximum strength 2% salicylic acid combined with soothing ingredients, Blemish Control Pads work to clear the appearance of breakouts leaving skin hydrated and calm.
Blemish Control Pads are a targeted treatment to take on active breakouts as and when you need them.
Non-Drying on Breakouts
Glycerin and allantoin work together to ensure the skin remains hydrated during use, offsetting any dryness that is common with other blemish-related products.
Gentle on Sensitive Skin
Each textured pad is ultra-light and soft to the touch, helping blemish-prone skin to stay comfortable during usage. Top tip: the pads can be used on larger areas such as the back, neck and arms to visibly decongest breakouts that appear on the body.
Perfect Product Pair
Crystal Retinal is the perfect choice of vitamin A to use with Blemish Control Pads to help minimise the appearance of blemishes; as it is the only form of vitamin A to be directly antibacterial.
How It Works
Blemishes are formed when a pore becomes clogged with dead skin cells and oil. This creates the perfect environment for irritating bacteria to flourish.
2% salicylic acid, a beta hydroxy acid (BHA) that can penetrate deep within pores and decongest build up of dead skin cells, dirt and excess oil. This helps to reduce the formation of blemishes. Salicylic acid also works as an anti-inflammatory to soothe the appearance of red and sore breakouts.
Infused with allantoin and glycerin, they protect the skin’s natural moisture balance to ward off dryness while healing and protecting for even the most sensitive of skin types.
How To Use
After cleansing in the morning and/or evening, use a pad to gently wipe the face, avoiding the eye area and leaving a thin layer of liquid.
Allow to dry before moisturising.
Use up to twice per day.
Patch testing prior to use is advised. Refer to medik8.co/patch for an in-depth guide to patch testing.

2% Salicylic Acid
Decongesting and exfoliating from within the pore, salicylic acid breaks down clogged skin cells which could cause blemishes. At 2%, it is the maximum strength available without prescription for best possible results.
A botanical extract naturally occurring in comfrey root, an ancient herb renowned for its therapeutic properties. Allantoin promotes healing, speeds up cell renewal and softens skin.
Naturally present in our skin, glycerin draws water from the lower levels of the epidermis and from the atmosphere to itself. This helps to hydrate the complexion and enhance the skin’s natural barrier function.Full Ingredients
