Clear skin is just a swipe away. Combining moisturising actives with blemish-busting salicylic acid, Blemish Control Pads effectively clear and prevent breakouts without stripping the skin’s natural oils.
Infused with a light spearmint scent, they fit seamlessly into your daily regime, leaving a clear, hydrated and visibly nourished complexion.
Gentle on Sensitive Skin
Plus, each textured pad is ultra-light and soft to the touch so they won’t irritate sensitive skin. Perfect for travel and particularly hygienic as each pad is thrown away after use.
The pads can be used on larger areas such as the back, neck and arms to decongest breakouts that appear on the bod
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 break down the bonds between dead skin cells and oil. This helps to reduce the formation of blemishes. Salicylic acid also works as an anti-inflammatory to soothe 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.
- After cleansing in the morning and/or evening, use a pad to gently wipe the face, avoiding the delicate eye area.
- Allow to dry before moisturising. Can also be used on the neck, back and arms.
- For the first 2 weeks, use Blemish Control Pads once a day to allow your skin to adjust to the formula.
- Then for best results use Blemish Control Pads twice a day.
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.

“Salicylic acid is typically difficult to formulate without alcohol because it cannot remain stable in water alone. This is why traditional blemish treatments are sometimes drying and uncomfortable to use. But Medik8 has designed an innovative formula that doesn’t need alcohol, and even has allantoin and glycerin for healthy and hydrated skin.”
