Medik8 Press & Clear - Product Review

medik8 press and clear


I began using the press & clear toner twice a day morning and night as part of my daily routine and I am so happy with the results I have achieved. I have combination skin and often have breakouts due to hormones but this toner has helped me to keep my breakouts under control and decongest my skin.

The press and clear toner includes a 2% salicylic acid to draw out dirt, oil and impurities. This helps to decongest and prevent blemishes. It is easy to use as it has a press pump so all you need to do is take a cotton pad press down and sweep gently over the face. It has a pleasant fresh scent and leaves the skin feeling clean without feeling tight and dry. I also found that it had a cooling effect on my skin which helped to tone down any inflammation and redness.

To incorporate this into my routine, in the mornings I began using it immediately after cleansing with the DermaTx clarify cleanser. I then followed with Skinceuticals Silymarin CF antioxidant serum and then Skinceuticals Metacell Renewal moisturiser. I ended my morning routine with Heliocare gel oil-free sunscreen.

For my evening routine, again I use it after cleansing and then follow with the Skinceuticals Metacell renewal. I like to keep my routine simple to keep it consistent and easy to follow with key active ingredients.

Overall, I think the Medik8 press & clear toner is a great addition to anyone’s routine if they have oily/combination and blemish-prone skin.


Results after 2 days!!
