  • Key Benefits
    • Blemish control

      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. 

    • Hydrating

      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.

  • 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.

    1. 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.

    2. Allantoin and glycerin work to heal and protect the skin.

  • How To Use
    1. After cleansing in the morning and/or evening, use a pad to gently wipe the face and neck, avoiding the eye area and leaving a thin layer of liquid.

    2.  Allow to dry before moisturising.

    3. Use up to twice per day.

    4. Patch testing prior to use is advised. Refer to for an in-depth guide to patch testing.

  • Ingredients
    ​​ ​​​​​​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.

  • The Science Behind

    Expert Knowledge


    “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.” Daniel Isaacs, Medik8 Director of Research
