Medik8 Blemish Control Pads
Alcohol-Free Blemish treatment
Blemish control pads are an effective all-in-one treatment pad designed for blemish prone skin and suitable for sensitive skin. Unlike traditional blemish treatments, they are completely free from alcohol and contain the maximum strength of 2% salicylic acid to unclog pores and exfoliate skin. They have added ingredients with anti-inflammatory and hydrating properties to effectively condition the skin without discomfort. The soft cotton pads turn what is traditionally a harsh, unpleasant product into a mild yet super effective treatment to improve problematic skin, prevent future breakouts and blackheads.
- Absorbs excess sebum and draws out impurities
- Effectively refines skin texture without drying it out
- Allantoin for skin softening
- Vitamin E and botanical antioxidants
2% Salicylic acid: Unclogs pores as it exfoliates inside the pore as well as the surface of the skin. Salicylic acid breaks up cells which stick together, promoting dead skin cell removal and facilitates sebum secretion.
Allantoin: Anti-inflammatory benefit to soothe skin inflammation.
Glycerin: An effective humectant and one of the natural moisturising factors of the skin. Contributes to enhancing the skin’s natural barrier function and reducing the TEWL (transepidermal water loss).
size: 60 soft cotton pads
Do not use if pregnant - this product contains salicylic acid
Use in the morning and/or in the evening on a thoroughly cleansed skin.
- Gently wipe pad all over face or specific area, avoiding the eye area. Great for larger areas, they can be used on the neck, the back and the back of the arms.
- Allow to dry and then follow with your regular serum and hydrator.
- For best results, use twice a day.
- Hydroxy-acids, like salicylic acid (BHA), encourage exfoliation, therefore sunscreen must be worn during the day while using Blemish Control Pads

Products that contain Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA's) or Beta-Hydroxy Acid (BHA) may cause initial flaking, tingling or irriation to the skin. For some this may be part of the normal resurfacing process.This generally improves as the skin ‘gets used’ to the treatment. AHA and BHA products may be introduced with less frequent use, and application can be increased as the skin acclimates(follow product directions). At first start by gradually introducing one AHA or BHA products at a time into your skincare regime. Also some breakouts may occur initially, due to purging of the follicles. Discontinue use if you have severe redness, itching, burning, rash, swelling or blistering.
Apply a sunscreen daily when using products that contain Alpha Hydroxy acids (AHA's) & BHA's.
